Bite by all wild animals should be treated as category III exposure for a Rabies risk. All animal bites in forest or in the wild should be treated as category III exposure and the routine first aid and rabies Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP) should be initiated.

Bite by rodents

Exposure to domestic rodents, squirrel, hare and rabbits do not ordinarily require  Rabies PEP.

Bat rabies

Bat rabies has not been conclusively proved in India and hence, at present, exposure to bats does not warrant  Rabies PEP.
