A Dog Bit Me. Now What?

In the aftermath of a dog bite, always seek medical attention for your injuries. Even if a wound appears minor, it must be cleaned and properly treated to prevent infection. If the dog bite is severe, go to the emergency room or call 911 for assistance. Next, obtaining as much information as possible regarding the dog and its owner is important. This includes the name, address, and phone number of the owner, as well as any information about the dog’s vaccination history. Finally, get their contact information if there were any witnesses to the attack.
