On her Instagram account, the Kapamilya actress uploaded a series of photos showing her needle patches after getting anti-rabies shots at St. Luke's Medical Center - Global City.

Her boyfriend, Xim Lim, 30, together with three non-showbiz companions, were with the actress in the hospital room.

In the caption, Kim related that it was partly her fault because she petted a "stranger" dog "just because [it's] cute and small."

Kim wrote, "Rushed to ER. Bitten by a 'small dog' in bgc. lesson learned never pet a 'stranger' dog, just because they're cute and small.

"To all the owners walking their dogs, please be mindful and always keep them on a leash.

"Look after them and never leave them unattended.

"Thank you to shangrilafort for the urgent assistance and st lukes bgc. #antirabiesshot"

Meanwhile, based on the video and photo that Kim and Xian uploaded on their Instagram Stories, the dog's breed appears to be a Pomeranian.
