Possible dog bite treatments

Posted on May 29, 2015 12:15 pm under Animal attack

Being attacked by a dog can be an emotionally wearing experience. But apart from emotional trauma, victims of animal attack should also deal with the physical pain and complications the wounds may cause.

After proper treatment of the wound, your doctor will do the necessary steps in order to protect you from further dog bite complications. These may include:

  • Oral antibiotic administration for 7 to 14 days, especially if a bacterial infection is present
  • A tetanus update
  • Rabies vaccination, especially if the dog involved hasn’t been immunized for rabies, or if rabies immunization status is unknown

Being attacked by an animal can be a traumatic experience. Additionally, it is often the case that a negligent pet owner failed to properly care for his or her pet, thereby resulting in the attack against you.
