This may seem like a really silly stupid question but I just got bit by a gerbil; it was a light bite and barely broke through the skin but still bled a lot. I did the usual and washed very well with warm water and soap, then topped it off with some hydrogen peroxide. The thing is that somewhere I read something about tetanus and small rodent bites? This gerbil is a pet of ours and came from Petco but ya never know and I haven't had a tetanus vax in years.....should I bother? I'm just trying to play it safe b/c of some health problems I have had lately...
