Dreaming that you are attacked by a vampire signifies that someone close is trying to profit off of you. However, if it is you yourself who plays the role of the vampire, this is a sign that you get carried away by passions and instincts that are each time more voracious. You will have to try to conquer them, as your internal equilibrium could resent it. (See midnight , fear , and bat )

Do animals dream?
Research conducted by various scientists show that animals do experience dream while sleeping. They also experience similar sleep stages like human beings - REM and Non-REM. If you have noticed a dog sleep, it might sometimes wag its tail, this indicates some response to its dream. A study was conducted in a cat by removing a part of the brain stem, which will not prevent it from reacting to the dream during REM. It was noted in some cats they were aggressively chasing mice as in reality.

If you want to be sure, try reading a simple sentence, if you are able to read then you are in wakeful stage if not you are in lucid dreaming. Studies show that you cannot read while dreaming or you will not find the repeated sentences one more time.
