LikeAnswersShare

one correction . in children never in deltoid region . alwayas in the anterolateral part of thigh . for giving im . dose doesnt change with age . schedule 0 3 7 14 28 days counted from the day of dogbite . categorize the dog bite for the need of immunoglobulin . if the dog is domestic n doesnt show any rabid symptoms till 14 days . three doses can b enough . first wash the wound under running tap water with soap . ask about tetanus immunization . amoxiclav orally to cover bacterias like pasteurella n staph strep present in dog saliva .

Ok sir

Dosage doesn't change with age In government setup, it is given 0.1ml intradermal Bilateral Deltoid at 0, 3, 7, 28 In Private setup or if someone directly buys from medical, it is the IM preparation that is available. If is given 1ml IM on 0, 3, 7, 14, 28 days on Deltoid too

Thank you doctor
