Today, at work as a dog groomer, two dogs gave me bloody bites, completely unprompted. I went home in tears, so my family got Chinese takeout to cheer me up. My fortune cookie read, "It is not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog that counts." FML

It would be better to quarantine the dogs for 10 days (which is what the law generally requires for any skin-breaking bite from a cat, dog, or ferret anyway) and then avoid the pain and expense of the rabies vaccination series altogether when they clear the post-quarantine exam and just have to take some antibiotics for the wounds.
Doctors are obligate reporters and if you end up needing to go for treatment later on and you tell them it’s an animal bite but can’t provide the animal’s information so they can be quarantined, they’re probably going to (at least try to, don’t know if they can legally force you) make you get the shots anyway.
OP, your job should provide some kind of worker’s compensation in these cases since it’s a common work hazard... if not, that just sucks.

Definitely get your money back on that fortune cookie. That’s not your fortune; that’s your past. Unless.....
I’m not sure I’d go to work tomorrow if I were you.
