Although the puppy was just born, it is not necessarily guaranteed that he does not carry rabies virus, so according to what you said has crusted and bleeding, for safety reasons, if the bite is not too powerful, you can inject two or three shots of rabies vaccine.
Your case is the need to rinse the wound with running water and soapy water, more than 15 minutes local application of iodophor for disinfection treatment, if the puppy is a newborn, not vaccinated, your case is best to vaccination
Through the situation you describe, generally do not worry too much, like this condition, the general chance of rabies virus infection is not large, but for insurance purposes, it is advisable to go to the hospital for vaccination, in addition to the daily diet to light, avoid spicy and stimulating food, pay more attention to rest.
