Unfortunate Dog Attacks

Dogs are man’s best friend, but not for all people. A surprising amount of people suffer from animal phobias, and more specifically, Cynophobia, or the fear of dogs. Dogs are not always friendly and warm creatures; canines have been known to attack people leaving victims hurt, permanently injured, and mentally damaged. Children, normally between the ages of five and nine, fall victim to the majority of canine attacks and often receive long lasting injuries. Every year millions of people are attacked and bitten by dogs, but only a few dozen suffer fatality. For general dog attack information, view the CDC or the Center for Disease Control and Prevention website.

When an individual suffers from a dog bite attack, injuries may include bleeding from punctured flesh, excessive blood loss, damaged tissue, and severed nerves. In severe cases, victims may experience brain damage, back and spinal injuries, or even paralysis. Although the majority of reported dog attacks are minor, severity increases if the animal carries and passes along dangerous bacteria or viral infections, like rabies. People can help to identify infections through symptoms including; swelling, inflamed areas, redness, fever, or even delirious behavior. Penetrating bites are a serious matter, and victims should seek medical attention immediately. Emergency care and professional doctors can provide immediate vaccinations to help prevent a worsening of symptoms for dog attack victims.

The majority of dog attacks may be prevented when owners properly care for their animals. For owners who abuse their animals, provoke dogs, or neglect properly treating their pets, owners may be at fault or liable for any damages or personal injuries experienced. Victims may experience serious psychological damage and trauma, in addition to physical injuries and medical expenses.
