After the Dog Bite Attack
If you or a loved one have been injured in an attack by a dog, you will have a series of possibly difficult decisions to make. Depending upon your own specific injuries, your doctor may recommend surgery to correct damage from scarring, or a small bit of plastic surgery may be needed for facial scars, with a skin graft taken for somewhere else on your body. While these types of surgeries are somewhat routine in dog injury cases, if you are the one facing it, it is not at all pleasant.
Another aftermath of an attack by a vicious dog is the possibility of infection. This is very common, and needs adequate medical care so it does not become more serious. Rabies is also something which needs to be taken very seriously. If you cannot identify the dog who attacked you and verify with the owner and their veterinarian that the dog is current with it’s rabies vaccinations, you will most likely be facing the painful series of shots needed to cure rabies.
Aside from the pain of the initial attack, you may have been emotionally traumatized by the dog bite attack. Also, you may be facing a long recovery.
