Pet owners or caregivers must always control domesticated animals, especially those in crowded towns and cities. This is particularly true for animals known to attack people.

A dog attacked my child. Who should pay?

Dog bites to the face are among the worst when looking at the long-term impact.

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.

Are you at risk of getting rabies after a dog bite?

Rabies is perhaps one of the most feared outcomes of being bitten by a wild animal.

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