In brief: Rabies prevention

The Philippines is endemic for rabies, so you should be careful to follow the doctor's instructions for the anti- rabies injections.
Because these are shots, drinking too much alcohol won't affect the treatment really. Still you should give your body a break and cut back on the alcohol. If you find the biting dog, that may make your treatment alot easier.
