  1. Hello
    welcome to medimetry
    Thanks for the query
    well its totally depend upon the level of scratch
    first of all clean the area with soap and water
    , I feel that you have a grade one scratch. Since no bleeding was there, you need not worry.
    Usually claws do not contain any virus, but cannot always be sure.
    I suggest you to get a prophylactic vaccination done for rabies.
    Usually, dose of three. that is on
    0 th day
    3 rd day
    7th day
    first dose to be take within 24 hr
    If the dog is pet then if the dog has got the vaccination than you can relax
    But if the dog is street one then the anti rabies dose is mandatory
    Take care
