Dog Bite

I got bit in the hand today by a dog and it's pretty bad. not bad enough to go to the doctor, but it's kinda deep and hurts real bad. I know that there are no rabies because it's my friends dog, but is there anything else I should be worried about. It did break the skin and bleed. Is the doctor necessary?

Unless somethings changed though... animals have to be killed to test them for rabies, and no test exists to test humans, only a series of painful shots.

Definately get it looked at though... may have damaged a tendon or something even.


There's now a series of (painful?) biopsies that humans go through, then a series of painful shots if they do have it.
