small possom, large rat

Last night in Jenna's kennel was a newly deceased creature, my guess was a small possom with huge claw like finger nails. Uhg. Cause of death was definitely loss of blood due to canines in the jugular vein.

Is there anything I should worry about? She is up to date on her shots. And she did not try to eat it. she just killed it. I carried it off with the pooper scooper. Since she did not try to eat it, worming her would be overkill, right?

When did she have her last rabies booster..I know years ago, when one of my gsd's killed a woodchuck, I had to rebooster him, just to be on the safe side, he was 2 years into a rabies..

I don't think I'd worm her

No, it was not chuck, it was black with a big white ruff and huge fingernail claws. Maybe a river rat. Not sure, long thin snout like a mole almost, rat tail. Looked like a possom, but those nails...

When Frodo killed a raccoon, we did that, too.

Jenna just had her Rabies vaccine in December I think. First one was december at 4 months, 1 yr. second was december, 1yr 4 months, 3 yr. The last one was at 4 yrs 4 months. I guess I better go and check to make sure, but I would hate to give her a booster at this point, and if I call the health department, that is what I think they will say, they did with Frodo. He had his I think within a year, and they said to go ahead and give him a booster anyway. That was ten years or more ago.
