Seek medical attention if in doubt. Dog bites are serious injuries.
Remember – if you notice signs of an infection (such as swelling, redness, or pus), contact your doctor immediately! If you suffer from certain health conditions (such as diabetes or liver disease) you may have a higher risk of developing infections.
Most of all, be careful around all dogs, especially those that are not your own!
Note: Dog owners in California have a statutory responsibility for victims of dog bites. Know the law, know your rights.
