Dog Bites Archives

Can adults adjust emotionally after a facial disfigurement?

Dog bites to the face are among the worst when looking at the long-term impact. They can leave people with permanent disfigurements that change the way they feel about themselves long after the pain has subsided and the healing process is over. These can impact job prospects, romantic relationships and much more.

Tips for avoiding dog attacks while jogging

For some joggers, one of their biggest concerns involves being chased or attacked by dogs.

It can be good for a dog bite to bleed

When you're bitten by a dog, one of your first concerns may be stopping the bleeding. Of course, if it's a serious bite, you need to get the bleeding stopped and get medical attention.

This leads people to feel panicked after a bite, fearing that they could be infected.

The importance of legal help after a dog attack

One of the most terrifying ordeals that someone can go through is an animal attack, and for most people who have had to endure such an ordeal, this means getting attacked by a dog. Dogs are man's best friend, but if they aren't raised properly or if they live through a tough upbringing, they can become very vicious animals that have a propensity to attack others. Anti-social behavior like this will only make people feel uneasy around the animal, which can exacerbate the problem.
