Hello. This is Dr. Christian.
With one small wound like everything will probably be okay. Clean the wound with warm water and you can apply triple antibiotic ointment 2-3 times daily. Watch for swelling, redness and pain. These are signs of infection. If they occur, usually 2-3 days later, then have Cairo seen by your vet.
Rabies wouldn't be an issue in this situation.
Thank you. Can I use Neosporin for the antibiotic?
You're welcome. That's perfect.
