5 Signs of a Dog Bite Infection

If you or a loved one has been the victim of a dog bite, the wound should be treated immediately, as there is a high risk of infection. Sadly, cleaning a wound and treating it quickly does not always keep it from getting infected. It may require a hospital visit and powerful antibiotics.

Millions of Americans suffer dog bite injuries and resulting infections every year, and when these injuries occur because of a negligent dog owner, it is important for that person to be held accountable for their wrongdoing. Contact the Michigan dog bite attorneys at Ravid & Associates, P.C., at 877-PET-BITE to learn more about your legal rights and options as a dog bite victim.

Infection Symptoms

Some dog bites and scratches can be treated at home with anti-septic. However, more serious dog bites are harder to treat, and can be incredibly dangerous if you do not seek the help of a medical professional. Sadly, in the most extreme cases, dog bite infections can be fatal.

If you or your loved one suffered a dog bite, you need to be on the lookout for the following five signs of an infection:

  1. Swelling
  2. Increase in body temperature
  3. Redness or other discoloration at the injury site
  4. Pain during movement
  5. Fluid or pus drainage

Dog owners are responsible for the actions of their pets. As such, if you were injured in a dog attack and suffered an infection as a result, you should not be forced to cover the costs of your accident on your own.
