The bite resulted a little bleeding locally (may be less than a drop or so) on my wife's arm. Even though our dog has been vaccinated for Rabies and others as listed below, is there any health concern from this biting ?

Vaccination done so far:
1. Distemper
2. Hepatitis (CAV-2)
3. Parainfluenza
4. Leptospirosis
5. Parvovirus
6. Rabies (next Rabies vaccination due March, 03, 2013)
7. Bordetella

Thanks for answer.
When I was on the job as a health aide one of my client cat bit my ankle and broke my skin , I had to go the ER and get a tetanus vaccine .
The bite was very small but it drew blood .
