When a person is bitten by a dog, there are several important risks and considerations for immediate care:
Risks of a Dog Bite:
Bacterial Infections: Dog bites can transmit bacteria from the animal's mouth to human tissue, which can result in infections such as rabies, tetanus, or Pasteurella, Staphylococcus, and Streptococcus infections.
Rabies: Although rare in many countries due to dog vaccines, rabies is a serious and life-threatening concern if the dog is not vaccinated.
Tissue Damage: Depending on the severity of the bite, there may be tearing of tissues, muscles, tendons or nerves.
Psychological Damage: Dog bites can leave the victim with psychological trauma, including the development of a dog phobia or PTSD.
Bone Injuries: In severe cases, especially if the dog is large and the victim is a child, bone fractures may occur.
Cleaning the wound: Immediately wash the wound with soap and water for at least 5 minutes.
Disinfection: Apply an antiseptic to reduce the risk of infection.
Control bleeding: Apply gentle pressure with a clean cloth to stop bleeding.
Cover the wound: Use a sterile bandage or clean gauze to protect the wound.
Medical Attention: Seek medical attention as soon as possible, especially if the wound is deep, does not stop bleeding, or if the dog is unknown or could be infected with rabies.
Tetanus vaccination: Check if a tetanus vaccine is required, especially if the last dose was more than 5 years ago.
Watch for signs of infection: Watch for signs of infection such as redness, swelling, increased pain, fever, or drainage.
Report: If the dog is not your own, it is important to report the bite to local authorities so they can follow the case and verify the animal's vaccination status.
It is important to remember that even wounds that seem minor can become infected. Therefore, medical attention is essential after a dog bite.
The major scientific study addressing the issue of dog bites is one conducted by researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, which reviewed 15 years of cases of dog-related facial trauma in patients treated at Nationwide Children's Hospital. in Columbus, Ohio, and the University of Virginia Health System.
Researchers focused on wound size, tissue tears, bone fractures and other serious injuries that required the attention of a facial trauma and reconstructive surgeon.
They also analyzed literature studies since 1970 to determine the relative bite risk of specific breeds and created a damage severity scale. Breeds with the highest risk of biting included pit bulls, mixed breeds and German shepherds, while breeds such as Dalmatian, pointer, Great Dane, Pekingese and Spitz were on the lower end of biting risk.
However, it was highlighted that the circumstances that lead a dog to bite can vary and may be influenced by the behavioral tendencies of the breed and the behavior of the dog's victim, parents and owner.
