Dog attack

Updated: 2017-06-13


A dog bite can lead to rabies or tetanus infection. Immediate medical care is needed when the bite is from a dog that has or might have rabies.


Symptoms of infection include redness, swelling, increased pain, and oozing. A doctor should look at these symptoms right away.


Not having had a tetanus shot in five or more years increases tetanus risk. A booster shot may be recommended.
