Yesterday i got bitten by a German shepherd who has taken its shots on time but is it necessary for me to take the anti rabbies injection ?

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.

A German Shepherd bit down on my arm, but didn't break the skin. I have a hard slightly purple lump there now that's sore and warm. Should I see a Dr?

Not a worry: Hi. If there was no break in the skin, it's not a worry. I would still wash it well, but no skin break - no infection risk. You have a deep bruise (a "hematoma"). It will go away on its own with time. If it worsens, get to your doc. Good luck! And bad dog! ...Read more
