Please if you opened this thread just to ask me if this is a clinic or you want to ask why I went near the dog kindly close the thread.
I visited someone, the dog was lying close to the door, I tried to touch it so it could go away it just bit me. Small bite with scratches on my fingers(I guess the scratches are from its nails) I went to the clinic and took tetenus injection and they also gave me anti-rabies injection too (5k per one) and said I'm supposed to take it 3 times but I'm strapped for cash currently.
I heard if a dog transmit rabies, it would die after few days. Should I still be worried if the dog doesn't die?
I mean if the dog is healthy and alive does it means it couldn't have had rabies infection to transmit during bite?
I need advice from only those with knowledge of the matter
very deadly

You may experience:
Pain areas: in the muscles
Whole body: dizziness, fatigue, fever, loss of appetite, or malaise
Psychological: delirium, fear, or hallucination
Muscular: muscle spasms or paralysis with weak muscles
Sensory: pins and needles or sensitivity to light
Behavioural: aggression or irritability
Gastrointestinal: nausea or vomiting
Also common: anxiety, brain death, coma, difficulty swallowing, dilated pupils, drooling, headache, hypersalivation, mental confusion, seizure, or stiff neck


Buy your coffin asap

And the dog won't die.


Can a person survive rabies?

Once a rabies infection is established, there's no effective treatment. Though a small number of people have survived rabies, the disease usually causes death.

Rabies is 99.8 percent fatal, and the dog could be a carrier, if i were you, I would run to the hospital as fast as I can, because when the symptoms manifest, which could take days or weeks, it's almost a death sentence.

Re: Help! I Got Bitten By A Local Dog by Albara(m): 1:42pm On Dec 12, 2021
Op, ask the owner if the dog is vaccinated. If not, then you need to talk with the owner of the dog on how to share the cost of hospital bills cuz I think owning a dog without vaccinating it is an offence in Nigeria. Sorry for the bite op, next time be careful around animals, dem no dey sabi rambo or odeshi angry

If the dog doesn't die after ten days then you're safe it doesn't have rabies. Pls never try to touch a strange dog especially suddenly, they see it as a threat.

If the dog doesn't die within a few days, then you are fine. However if the dog dies, you will have to take a lot of injections, i think, in the navel region. I pray nothing of such happens to you.

Before I started owning my own Alsatians, my mom owned a local dog and I mistakenly matched its tail and the idiot gave me a bite. I ran temperature that afternoon but refused to take any injections. The dog did not die and I haven't either. My mom wasn't treating that fool anyways.

Visit a local hospital where you will be administered anti rabies vaccines. You gonna need bout 5 vaccine shots.

Be ready for the vaccine side effects
Be ready to spend money.

You have got nothing to worry about as long as you take your anti rabies shots.
Nothing should concerns you if the dog actually got rabies or not but that you taken the necessary step to protect yourself.
So relax you have got enough on your plate already.

First free yourself from the fear of being infected through the bite and concentrate on your job while waiting for your next dose of injection. Though when I was biten by my landlord's ekuke, I washed the spot immediately with soap and water then took just a shot of anti rabbies injection which was less than 1k.

If the dog have rabies, it will eventually die later.Dogs don't normally carry rabies virus for long before it kills them and within that period if it bites anyone, it can transmit it. There is a high probability the dog does not have it.
To be on the safe side, complete the injections, borrow money if u have to because its your life on the line so dont gamble with it. we only live once.

We do have a local dog at home also. First time I was bitten by it . I just used spirit to clean the wound and I was good . After like 3 months I mistakenly stepped on its tail and it bit me again . This time uncle was there . He made sure I took tetanus injection that’s all. Went to hospital and got one shot and they gave me antibiotics to heal that’s all . Went back home in a week the wound don close . Any one telling you that you will bark for days just Dey lie. Take one shot or tetanus injections . You will be fine

You shouldn’t be waiting for the dog to die so that your worry can top. You should stop worrying by acting.

The first thing you should do is go to a proper hospital preferably within the first 6 -8 hours.

I was recently bitten by my neighbors dog. I know their dogs are aje butters, well taken care of and I confirmed that it was vaccinated.

Still , I went to the hospital.

At the Hospital, you can have the wound properly inspected, properly dressed and you can get the recommended drugs. In my case I didn’t hVe to take rabies injection because I confirmed the dog was vaccinated. But I still took tetanus injections and two antibiotics were recommended.

Please don’t treat it lightly. Don’t play with anything that has to do with bites as they have high rates of infect-ability, especially dog bites.

Nigerians dont like going to the hospital. Sometimes I think it’s the money. But even if I am broke , I still go to the hospital- at least to have a good sense of what I am dealing with.

As someone said above, 15k is not worth losing your life over.

I think you should take all the injection,don't joke with your life,though when its your time your shall surely go.

All this dog self,i remebered a day when i was passing by and i saw a dog which needed help urgently because it leg was stucked on something.

When i try removing it leg from the hole...then in a blinkle of an eye, it gave me a terrible bite also and scrached my hand with it's finger,in the same rhyme i gave it a big blow which removed it from the hole that it was stucked on.
I hate nonsence!

Humans really have low intelligence.... You met an animal in distress who doesn't understand your language...

At that point in time he's on survivor mode...

Meaning the dog is ready to die to get out of it... You saw the situation and couldn't assess how volatile it was?

Yeah you had compassion but in that case you encountered an animal that had it's instinct at level 100
