Dog Bite this week. Hope not! May 23, 2008

This week was dog bite prevention week in Rock County.  Please take this opportunity to make sure your dogs (and other pets for that matter) behave and are safe and sound.

Keep this in mind: Rock County officials have said that children from newborn to 10 years old are the most common dog bite victims in Rock County.  I can’t imagine these statistics differ much from county to county across Wisonsin. 

The Rock County officials go on to state that 84% of Rock County’s dog bites are to the face, neck or head.  From my person injury practice I’d add arms/hands to the mix.  Usually, there are defensive injuries. 

In any event, be careful this week.  Tie your dog up, keep him or her on a leash when you go for walk and make sure your animals are up to date on all of their rabbies shots.
