Dog bite/ Monkey bite is very scary situation for young kids and their parents. We need to consult doctor immediately as treatment has to be started within 24 hours. Dog bites can lead to rabies disease.
Rabies disease can be prevented with vaccination, but if it occurs it is 100% fatal worldwide.
Rabies can occur with dog bite, monkey bite or any other domestic or wild animals.
Specially if dog bite is unprovoked, chances of dog being rabied is high. Beside as we know the illness is 100% fatal, so whenever in doubt its better to vaccinate the child.
Category of bite:
Table 1: Type of contact, exposure and recommended post-exposure prophylaxis
Type of contact
Type of exposure
Recommended post-exposure prophylaxis
Touching or feeding of animals Licks on intact skin
None, if reliable case history is available
Nibbling of uncovered skinMinor scratches or abrasions without bleeding
Single or multiple transdermal bites or scratches, licks on broken skinContamination of mucous membrane with saliva (i.e. licks)
Wound cleansing: All post exposure prophylaxis (PEP) should begin with immediate thorough cleansing of all wounds with soap and water. If available, a virucidal agent (e.g., povidine-iodine solution) should be used to irrigate the wounds.
Human rabies immune globulin (HRIG): Administer 20 IU/kg body weight. If anatomically feasible, the full dose should be infiltrated around and into the wound(s), and any remaining volume should be administered at an anatomical site (intramuscular [IM]) distant from vaccine administration. Also, HRIG should not be administered in the same syringe as vaccine. Because RIG might partially suppress active production of rabies virus antibody, no more than the recommended dose should be administered. The dose of equine rabies immunoglobulin is 40 IU per kg body weight of patient and is given after testing for sensitivity
Vaccine: Human diploid cell vaccine (HDCV) or purified chick embryo cell vaccine (PCECV)
IM (deltoid area): 1ml dose, on days 0, 3, 7 and 14- 28.
2 site ID (intradermal): 0.1ml in both arms, on 0, 3, 7.
