Thanks for the well wishes. Yeah, I agree there's always that 1% chance no matter the dog (could get spooked, etc.). As noted above, I didn't get their info and wasn't planning to go to the hospital but then got concerned about potential for rabies and definitely don't want that. Lesson learned and for anyone else out there who experiences this be smart and get the owner's info.Geez! this makes me so mad as a dog owner and cyclist people need to know and be aware of the 1% chance that the dog will behave unexpectedly in a situation where they may have not reacted badly before. anytime I have my dog out I pass others with a wide berth and a short leash.
I hope you got their information and made a report so they can pay your medical bills. feel better soon.
