Rabies is a terrible way to die for any animal or human. Of course there are vaccines to protect your pets and also humans should they be bit by a rabid animal. Symptoms are lethargy, nose and eyes running, growing at their owner or others when they normally don't do so. Snapping or trying to bite and near the end foaming at the mouth, tail drawn between the legs and a loping side-ways walk as if they are going to collapse. By this time it's too late for the animal and one has to put it out of it's misery.

Do you need to get injections if you are bitten by a dog who has no rabies?

If you are in a country with rabies, it would be far safer to get the injections after you are bitten by a dog, especially a dog whose vaccination status is unknown, a particularly aggressive dog, or a stray dog. The rabies incubation period is 1 - 3 months, therefore a dog can be infected with rabies (and infect you), without showing ANY external clinical signs of being infected with rabies. Chances are, during this incubation period, the virus will NOT have entered the saliva glands. It is only after the dog is affected with neurological signs that the virus tends to be excreted in the dogs saliva. However, this is not a risk worth taking. I would, of course, consult as quickly as possible with your local doctor if you have been bitten for the best advice.

If a dog bites and has rabies and the dog got injected because he bit someone will the dog be crazy?

First of all, if the dog has rabies, death will be imminent. The crazy behavior would be the result of the infection of the nervous system.If you are trying to say that the dog bit someone and was given a rabies shot because of that. . . Normally, a dog is quarantined for 10 days after a bite to see if he shows signs of the disease and to determine if the victim should undergo the rabies treatment. Giving an uninfected dog a rabies shot might be conditional to release. Some people feel that the rabies vaccines do affect the temperament of their pets, though it should not make them crazy.
