In brief: Animal bites
Well thats a problem you are placed in antibiotics if the site gets infected it can be cultured if the animal is wild you may need rabies shots you must seek out medical care for this asap.

In brief: Rabies in animal
Animal can be tested (brain) for rabies.
Wound can be tested for other bacteria from, eg, cat bite.
