Doctor: Hello. Welcome to Ask The Doctor.It is very simple. Since your dog has bitten you 27 days back then in case your dog i s rabid he must have shown signs and symptoms of Rabies.If your dog is behaving normally then your dog probably doesn’t has rabies and you are safe.See your doctors for the symptoms you are describing. They might be due to typhoid or viral infection.I hope it helps.Stay Healthy.
