Last Anti-Rabies Shot for Renz

After 4 sessions and 11 injections, Renz finally "graduated" from his shots at the Research Institute of Tropical Medicine or RITM in Alabang last Wednesday. Renz was bitten (scratched, is more like it) by Poochie a few weeks ago prior to Poochie's anti-rabies injection.

How did it happen? Well, Poochie was eating by the door (not her usual place) when Renz stepped outside. Renz's putting on his slippers somehow startled Poochie and grazed Renz's foot with her mouth.


Other than Renz, it was only Che who had a case of dog bite and required injections at RITM. This was when she was around 2 or 3 and we went biking together. I didn't think our dog Poochie had rabies at all as she's always inside our yard. But of course, we just didn't want to take any chances. And fortunately, Renz was mostly cool with the injections.

Hi MissANN. Sorry, I couldn't remember. It wasn't terribly expensive though - but this was 2 years ago.
