Facial Dog Bite Wounds

A dog bite to the face is one of the most serious injuries a person can sustain from a dog attack. Many dogs have strong jaws that can cause deep puncture wounds within a matter of seconds. Children are especially at risk of facial dog bite injuries because their shorter height often puts their face at or close to eye level with a dog.

Types of Facial Dog Bite Injuries

When many people think of a dog bite, they think of the deep puncture wounds that a dog may cause with its teeth. However, this is just one of the many injuries that a dog bite victim may sustain from an attack. Other common injuries from dog bites to the face are:

  • Scratches
  • Scrapes
  • Facial fractures
  • Nerve injury
  • Muscle damage
  • Severe scarring

Treatment for Dog Bites to the Face

If you or someone you love has been bitten on the face by a dog, you should seek emergency medical attention immediately. A facial wound can involve heavy bleeding even if the injury is relatively minor, so it is important to stop the bleeding and get stitches if necessary. A doctor can inspect the wound and determine the best course of treatment. Because a dog bite may cause scarring or disfigurement, it may be necessary to undergo plastic surgery to restore the victim’s facial features.
