When the Dog Bites

When the Dog Bites


It's inevitable that romping with your dog or cat will result in a scratch or two, and sometimes even an errant bite. So here are some simple steps you should take to protect your health whenever an animal's teeth or claws break your skin: > Rinse a bite wound or scratch from your pet right away with plenty of running water. > Wash the area with a mild soap or a mild iodine solution, such as Betadine solution, that has been diluted with water. > Contact your physician.
