More info?: Need to know whether the biting happened with minimal provocation/no provocation at all, is the dog doing okay, healthy without excess salivation/fever etc. Would suggest to observe your dog closely for the next 2 weeks minimum for any change in behavior. No harm in consulting your PCP/Urgent care clinic, as inspection of the bite site and genl.exam of you will help to decide about need of vaccine
