    There are stray dogs here, but none rabid as far as I can tell. The dogs are well taken care of by its owners and they are tame and well fed and no likely to bite anyone. I was in Nepal for two whole months and have experienced friendly dogs approaching me for a pat and accompanying me around on my daily walks even though I was a complete stranger to them. That is how friendly Nepalese dogs are, just like the inhabitants. So no worries, you are as likely to be bitten by a rabid dog as being hit by falling space debris.
    But of course, have vaccination for every possible disease, it is highly recommended when traveling into a third world country. You never know what you may encounter.

    You only get a rabies shot after you've been bitten - not before. It is pretty much considered necessary treatment to have the course of rabise shots after being bitten.

    Better to get the shots before as after is a course of three and could spoil your travel plans. It's not just dogs you need to take care of. Monkeys can also carry the disease. almost 9 years ago
