After a dog attack, be sure to identify the dog's owner, request their contact information, and inquire about the dog's vaccination records. Next, we suggest that you contact animal control to report any bite or scratch that breaks the skin. Most importantly, you must receive medical attention for your bite, as these particular bites carry a high risk of infection. Be sure to save all paperwork related to your treatment. Lastly, gather evidence of your attack, including photographs of the scene, and the contact information of any witnesses.
What Dog Owners Must Do after a Dog Bite
Dog owners must quarantine any dog who bites a person. If the dog is a stray, officials of the city where the bite happened will need to send animal control to find, quarantine, and observe the animal. In the event that the dog has a transmittable disease, quarantining him will ensure others are safe.
