I doubt anything worrisome would happen. For you to catch rabies, your puppy should have been infected and you should have an open wound or at least a scratch on your genitalia puppy licked.

Dogs lick their owners all the time. If your dog has rabies you would know. Unless you have an open wound on your vagina, it is unlikely you will get an infection.

Please see a Doctor: Please bring this up with your Gynecologist who knows your medical history and can give you a through exam. If you don't have confidence in your Doctor see another for a second opinion.

It is unlikely to do you any harm. If the dog is still alive 10 days from the incident, he did not have rabies. If the dog dies or runs away within 10 days, see your doctor for consideration of rabies vaccine.
