What should I do if I was bitten by a dog with no vaccinations?

I need to know what are my risks.

You need to get a rabies shot as soon as possible! Yesterday for that matter. The rabies virus is deadly and cannot be stopped when it has established itself in your body. There is no treatment. The rabies shot is a vaccine that neutralizes the virus and prevents it from being established in your body. See the doctor immediately.

Being bitten by any animal is dangerous, especially if you know it has not had any vaccinations. You should go to the doctor and get tested for rabies and keep an eye out for swelling or redness around the bite mark.

You could get Rabies so you may want to go in to a Doctor and get a Tetanus shot to avoid this.

You need to find the dog and have it checked to see if it has rabies or any other kind of disease he could have passed on to you when he bit you. Odds are that you will be ok, but you should play it safe.
