Infections from Dog Bites

Dog bites are an all too common occurrence with over 4 million incidents happening each year. The majority of dog bites do not constitute serious injuries and are not severe enough to require hospitalization. However, what may seem like a mild dog bite can actually become dangerous if certain pathogens are transmitted during the attack. If left untreated, serious infections can develop and quickly turn deadly.

If you or someone you love was bitten by someone else’s dog, the owner may be liable for your injuries and any infections that develop. A Michigan dog bite injury attorney of Ravid & Associates, P.C., can help victims of dog bites get the compensation they deserve. Contact our offices today at 877-PET-BITE for more information.

Types of Infections

Canine saliva is rich with microorganisms. Much is harmless, but there are sometimes hazardous bacteria that can be transmitted to humans through a painful bite. Additionally, humans carry bacteria on their skin, and when the skin is broken through a dog bite, the bacteria can enter the bloodstream and cause infection.

The following are some infections that a person can suffer due to a dog bite:

  • Tetanus
  • Rabies
  • Staph
  • Strep

These infections can be serious, and if left untreated, they may be fatal. If you are bitten by a dog, it is important to get medical treatment to avoid infections.
