Dogs and cats are common household animals and are often thought of as more like another member of the family. It is important to remember that pets are not human and they cannot communicate their feelings with words. Dogs especially, because of their size, can be dangerous to humans and are capable of causing serious injury.

If a person is bitten by a dog, the first thing to do is separate the person and the dog to prevent further harm. Some bites are harmless, but if skin is broken, it is important to seek medical attention to be sure that any infection can be properly taken care of.

Doctors should also be contacted if pain persists around the bitten area even if the skin was not broken. Children and infants should be checked out by a doctor after a dog bite regardless of their reaction.

Wounds should be kept elevated and washed out with water if possible. If the dog is not your own, you should also get information about the dog’s medical history, including shots.

When treatment for a dog bite is determined, medical specialists look for exterior skin damage, infection and injury to tissues inside the body like bone, nerve and muscles. The tissue injuries are a main reason why seeking medical attention is important after a dog bite.

There are a variety of methods for treating dog bites, including surgery to repair tissue, sutures for deep lacerations, and immunization against infections. Rabies is always a primary concern for doctors, but it is not common in house pets.

If you have been bitten by a dog, contact a personal injury attorney for assistance on what to do legally. The owner of the dog could be responsible in taking care of your injury from his or her dog.
