Immediately after animal bite you have to wash the area with soap and water for 10mins . Don't cover the area TT VACCINE AND RABIES VACCINE should be taken Depending upon the nature of wound doctor will give you antibiotics .

Wash with soap and running water If it has bled then you definitely need anti rabies vaccination (ARV) contact any govt hospital or private provider for ARV and might also require immunoglobulin (serum )
