Pasteurella Infections

Pasteurella multocida is an infectious disease that can be spread through bites and scratches from dogs, cats, and other pets. It is the most common infection associated with animal bites, especially those from cats, and if left untreated, it can result in serious complications for the patient. Fortunately for victims of pet bites or scratches, if the animal that attacked was another person’s pet, the owner of that pet can be held liable for any medical bills.

If you or someone you care about has received a Pasteurella infection as a result of another person’s cat, do not hesitate to contact the Michigan cat bite attorneys of Ravid & Associates, P.C., at 877-PET-BITE for more information regarding your legal rights and options.

Symptoms of Pasteurella Infections

The first signs of an infection from Pasteurella generally occur within 2-12 hours after the bite or scratch has occurred. Common symptoms of pasteurellosis include:

  • Pain and swelling
  • Reddening skin
  • Tenderness at the site of infection
  • Fluid discharges
  • Chills and high fever

It is important to seek medical attention immediately following a pet scratch or bite because an early diagnosis and treatment of pasteurellosis can prevent the infection from worsening. Infections to an individual’s hands can be especially detrimental due to the low blood flow to the hands, which can allow an infection to flourish.
