How to Treat a Dog Bite

Published on September 20th, 2011

Every year, millions of dog bites occur throughout the United States. This video will teach you how to treat a dog bite.

Dog bites can cause serious tissue damage. The first step one should take following the bite is to clean the injury with soap and water and disinfect the area with alcohol or hydrogen peroxide. Put a clean bandage on the wound and keep an eye on it for signs of swelling.  Ice the affected area every twenty minutes if swelling occurs. The dog should be monitored for signs of rabies or infection for at least 15 days.
