is inj rabipur nedded in rat bite cases
Expert Answer :
Rat bites may be contaminated with Streptobacillus moniliformis or Spirillum minus. Symptoms of Rat Bite Fever may appear as much as 10 days after the bite, and are likely to happen after the wound itself is already healed. Watch for: Fever, Headache, vomiting and pain in the back and joints.
Rabies transmission from rodents to humans is extremely rare and hence Rabies Vaccine is not required.
