Does a 3-month old puppy have rabies?
I have a 3 month old micro pinscher puppy and was still scheduled for vaccination. One afternoon I bathe him on our bathroom and his foot got stuck on one of the holes on our bathroom.
I tried to free him but he bit my hand and it bled. Am I in danger of rabies. I'm so worried right now. Please help. Thank you.
Unless your puppy is showing signs of illness that are similar to those of Rabies then I doubt you're in any danger. But there are never any guarantees in an unvaccinated puppy because it's impossible to say for sure.
If you are seriously worried I'd recommend getting your puppy checked out by a veterinarian who will be able to tell you if he's carrying the Rabies virus or not. That will put your mind at rest.
You also need to get this puppy to your vet so that he can get his puppy shots started right away. He is at risk of several serious, contagious dog illnesses without them.... and in the case of Rabies so are you.
Please get him to your vet asap. I wish you the best of luck and hope everything works out well for you both.
