Animal Bite

Animal bites are serious incidents that should be followed up with a medical visit, even if the damage appears minor. The saliva of an animal can cause serious infections, including the rabies virus.
If you are bitten by an animal, immediately wash the wound with mild soap and warm water for several minutes to reduce the risk of infection. Avoid using harsh chemicals. Apply a clean cloth or sterile bandage to control bleeding if necessary. Seek medical attention promptly, especially for deep or puncture wounds, as you may need antibiotics or a tetanus shot.
