i was bitten by my puppy on february 26, 2013 the category of exposure was II, i had three shots scheduled -
1st - feb 27, 2nd - march 1 and 3rd march 6 and was asked to observe the dog for 14 days and everything went well because my dog is still alive. Basically i was able to complete all the shots but just now i was feeding this stray cat and it bit me on my hand, the puncture bled and i clean it with water, alcohol and betadine, Do i need to have an anti rabies shot again?

Hi Coline,

Welcome to EmpowHER.  In most cases, if you were vaccinated just recently.  You might not need to repeat it.  But, you will need to discuss this with your doctor.

Hope this was helpluf?
