Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advise. You have been bitten by a dog, so tetanus toxoid and rabies vaccine can be taken for that to prevent tetanus and rabies. But as you said if you are sure that dog is fully immunized with rabies then no need to take the vaccine. No dietary restriction needed. You can eat everything. If a wound is present because of the dog bite then it should be kept clean by a regular dressing.
