Dog Bite Incident Results in Devastating Infection

Posted on January 29th, 2013 No Comments

A woman in Texas had to have both of her legs amputated, as well as her fingers, after a minor dog bite left her with a devastating bacterial infection. The Austin resident was breaking up a fight between her dog and her daughter’s dog when she was bit, reporting the bite as only a minor cut.

However, within a few days, the woman became incredibly ill and was taken to the hospital. Doctors found that the woman had been infected with Capnocytophaga Canimorsus, a bacterium that can be found in the mouths and saliva of dogs and cats and that normally poses no threat to humans. Because of how quickly the infection spread, the woman became septic, and doctors had no choice but to remove her legs and all her fingers, except for her thumb.

The effects of a dog bite can be unexpected and devastating, and if you have suffered injuries and other losses because of someone else’s dog, you should not be forced to cover the costs of your care out of pocket.
