Dog attack

VIETNAM | Wednesday, 7 May 2008 | Views [2337]

A friend and I were walking along the main road in Sapa, Vietnam, when two dogs attacked us. One bit deeply into my calf so I threw my bag at the dog and fled.

How World Nomads helped

Treatment in a Hanoi hospital for two days where they administered the human rabies immuno globulin, two more post exposure vaccines and a further series of injections at 3, 7, 14 and 28 days.
