So I got bit by a chihuahua 3 weeks ago it was a small bite through my sock on my ankle. The bite does not hurt and there is no pain around the bite, but I keep getting the worst anxiety about this bite like I'm going to die of rabies or something. I have googled so much information on this subject and found that its highly unlikely to contract rabies from a domesticated pet but I still can't think what if. The dog was a family pet around children and the lady picked him up and held it after it happened so the dog was probably not rabid. I basically have this anxiety because I have been unable to reach these people after this incident because I didn't realize I was bleeding until I got home. I called the people but they never returned my calls. Now here it is 3 weeks later I can't help bit think something is wrong and my anxiety comes and goes, sometimes I'm perfectly fine and the next second I'm freaking out about it.
