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


Rabies don’t affect dogs. A dog will always be fine even if it has rabies. It only kills humans

Try and visit a clinic before it’s to late
Or else in some days u b a dead meat
Re: Help! I Got Bitten By A Local Dog by Josephjogkuu: 2:44pm On Dec 12, 2021
Just count days from the day of the bite, if the dog is still alive after 7days, thennthe dog is rabbies-free, u can stop the vaccine then, but meanwhile, u should take the vaccines during the 7days if6 waiting because u could never tell if it's rabbied or not b4 the 7days.
Normally, rabbies vaccine are taken 7times (Days 0, 3, 7, 14, 21 and/28). A dog is not expected to live more than 7days after contacting rabbies infection. So when biten by a dog, assume u were bitten immediately the dog got rabbies, then wait 7days while taking vaccines day 0, 3 and 7, and u can stop vaccine if dig still alive after day 7. U are advised not to kill the dog, but make sure the dog dosent die from any other cause so as to be sure the dog didn't die from any other cause.

We can send the op funds to complete the dosage instead of just advising him to complete it. If he has the money, I'm sure he wouldn't have bothered posting this.

na elderly woman like that I don't think she treats the dogs. The dog doesn't go out like that because I always see it lying close to her kitchen. Since last year. She said the dog bit her granddaughter about 2 months ago.
To be honest, if it were any other time for the past 4 years, I wouldn't mind if the injection cost 20k per one but I'm at the lowest point financially right now. So that 10k is kind of like a mountain to me right now

Why don't u ask the owner if the dog was vaccinated.


I urge u to try and take full rabies vaccination.

Your life is worth more than N15k.

Vaccine failure in dogs is a well documented phenomenon. Don't rely on it.

Liar. A rabid dog will die within 10 days of symptoms. Rabies affects all mammals, including goats, cows, buffaloes, hyenas, all feline cats, domestic cats, raccoons, bats, etc.

The only thing is that because dogs are the most domesticated animals and they are carnivores which bite, they transmit it to humans more than any other animal.

Neighbour thinks i am joking, one day i wake up and heard the dog is dead.

Dogs with rabies die after a few days and it's not because they transmitted the rabies but because they are infected with it, if the dog doesn't die after a few days then you are safe and you don't need 3 shots of anti rabies...one or two will do

If you like be here and be yarning rubbish.... don't go and complete your dose.

A professional told you to take three doses, instead of looking for the money by all means, you are here asking stupid questions. Don't soon you will realise that 10k is a tip of what is about to befall you. Keep joking with dog bite.

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.
He was beaten by a provoked dog, not rabid dog.

Jus observe de dog for 10days for any sign of rabies b4 taking that vaccine.

That vacine can give u rabies.

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
Look this one,i bet that if you were in my shoe that day,base on the way you are talking now,i agree you would nt punish it for bitting you,but i am sure you would just walk pass it forgetting about it cause it harmed you.....me a sharp guy gave it a blow that punished it and also did it a favour....
stop reasoning with your ynash pls.

I think you should take all the injection,don't joke with your life,though when its your time you 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 and also 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!

Ogbeni, /find money by all means and go take the complete shots of tetanus. You can never tell of that dog is infected. The worst thing is how many people vaccinate their local dogs sef?


Next time, stay off dogs you don't know their health records history (dogs that are not your own)

Take the full shots of the vaccine to be on the safe side but you can observe the dog for 10days, if it doesn't die then it's not rabid.According to the internet, a rabid dog dies in 10days.
