Immediately wash the wound with lots of soap and water.
Confine the animal where no one else can come in contact with it. Take measures to prevent additional bites. Contact a licensed nuisance animal control company to safely and effectively remove the animal.
If the animal must be killed, do not damage the head as rabies testing is done on the brain.
Seek medical advice immediately from your primary care physician or the emergency department.
When dealing with a dead animal, wear gloves or use a shovel if you need to move the animal. Follow the advice of the health department for handling the dead animal. Do not freeze it. Clean the area and tools with bleach and water.
Contact your county or city health department for advice and more information on testing an animal for rabies exposure.
