Yeah, leaves the pup unsocialized and prone to sickness.

That little dog would show serious signs of rabies well before the OP would have and could have treated it then.

OP can have fun with the shots though and this is an entertaining thread.

First of all not all puppies live in the same living condition. I have very specific circumstances that necessitate my actions. All the medical persons agree and I would rather believe them tbh as most of you don't live in my country where rabies is a more serious case. Also the fact that 3 weeks of it's life is a mystery to us.

My fellow countrymen gave a valid point that it has a slim to none chance of it happening. I'm afraid of that slim chance because as I said earlier in my reply post to him about the other strays that are not dogs.

You should skim the thread to see the reason why observing the puppy is not possible. But for your sake I'll say it in simple terms. The puppy cannot be observed after 5 days because the owner and the puppy who are just staying temporarily in our house will leave.

Just remember that there is no medicine for regret. I had the shots, it was free and since it protects me as well from further rabies bites in the meantime then I still say it's worth.

There's another dog in the house. It's our personal dog. We aren't afraid of that since the dog has anti rabies shot.

Unless you want to go to the hospital since you're worried, I'd just wait to ask the vet to examine the pup. Though go to the doctor if the bite is severe.

If the dog is just 2 weeks he'll have none (though I have a hard time imagining a 2 week old dog biting that hard). The only one that will affect humans though, rabies, isn't given til about 5 months (it's not so good for the dog to give it earlier).

Here's what you do.
1. Go to sleep.
2. Forget about it.

But if you're that conerned. Just go talk to the vet to help get peace of mind.

I disagree that because we are talking about the Philippines that all of a sudden it is a much more valid concern.

Yes the Phillipines is on the top 10 of nations with rabies. Yes the incidence rate is around 1,000 a year with 300 deaths.

We are talking about a nation of 100 million people though. The statistical chance is even lower when the largest amount of victims to rabies infection are children. You then have to look at the supposed carrier. A puppy of 2 to something weeks old. A puppy of such a young age that somehow got rabies in its small span of life, survived the attack from an animal with rabies somehow, and apparently doesn't have a visible wound. The only alternative would be the pupper getting rabies from saliva exchange with another dog. But that brings us to the biology of the situation. If the dog contracted rabies, the disease would ravage the dog in little to no time. We are talking about a very young puppy, a small body and an incomplete immune system.The dog would be exhibiting extreme behaviors or be dead before OP was outside of the time limit to receive the vaccines.

Now that you've gotten yourself checked out, I suggest asking your friend to take better care of the puppy. If the conditions you're living in really necessitate you getting rabies vaccinations, perhaps the puppy should also be cared for in a better way.

If the puppy doesn't have rabies yet, letting it roam around like that at such a young age is a good way for it to get it. This is based on how you're describing your environment.

I hate it when irresponsible people get pets, makes my blood boil.

OP was way off on the dog's age. It looks to be at least 2 months old.

Saw that the puppy was having some very soft "mud-like" poos. Did not see where you planned to take him to the vet to get this checked out.

Stray cats in front of house plus pup playing in front of house equals pup eating cat poo and getting worms.

Take a poo sample to the vet.

Also, what kind of food is the dog eating? At that young, it should ideally be still nursing from its mother. If you're giving it dry food already, that could explain the vomiting.

I'm pretty sure OP is just taking the piss.

1. Of course a two-week old puppy doesn't have rabies.

2. If you actually thought that you might have contracted rabies, would you make a thread on a video game forum about it and then post to it all day?

I'm not thread whining here. I legitimately love this thread.

Now you are going to experience the side effects from the vaccinations you received for the rabis that never existed.


  • injection site reactions (pain, swelling, itching, or redness),
  • headache
  • dizziness
  • muscle pain
  • nausea
  • stomach pain

Have fun OP!

I know everyone has had a good laugh, as did I, but I am a bit frustrated that this poor pup is allowed to roam around the front yard when there are packs of feral cats in a place that supposedly has issues with rabies and other infectious diseases which will spell certain death for the dog.

Find a new home for the puppy, that is my only advice.

Make sure you inquire about getting the puppy tested for rabies. It won't hurt him at all.

Given the OP's last dog register thread was how a family member had killed their dog by feeding it all the stuff that's harmful to a dog, I'm not sure that's a great idea 🙈

I thought it was GAF Man like Florida Man e.g. "GAF Man bitten by puppy amputates arm to avoid becoming Werewolf".
