Animal Bites

Bites from wildlife, cats & dogs.

1.       Wash wound for several minutes with soap and water.


2.     Apply antiseptic.

3.     Apply sterile pad or bandage to protect the wound.

4.     CALL DOCTOR AND/OR POLICE IMMEDIATELY. If bite is from an unknown dog or other animal, try to have animal caught for examination by authorities. If the animals must be killed, take precautions not to injure the brain of the animal since this is where rabies examinations are conducted.  They can then determine if victim will need a series of anti-rabies injections.
