This is Dr. David
she has had shots for rabies
so there is no worry about the possum bite.
the main worry is risk for bacterial infection
she needs to get the bite evaluated by her doctor
and if at risk for infection, she might need a course of antibiotics or antibiotic cream for the areaa
let me know if you have questions.
