Animal Bites
« on: March 24, 2008, 10:59:02 AM »
Animal bites and scratches that break the skin can cause infection.
Rerely , animal bites(particularly from wild animals)can cause rabies, a dangerous, life-threatening disease.

WHAT TO DO:

1-Wash the area with soap and water, and apply pressure with sterille gauze or a clean cloth if wound is bleeding.(Do not apply an antiseptic or anything else to the wound.)

2-Cover the area with a bandage or sterile gauze.

SEEK MEDICAL CARE IF THE CHILD:

*was bitten by wild or stray animal,or any animal that hasn't recently had rabies shots or is acting strangely

*was in close contact with a bat even if you don't see a bite mark

*has a bite that punctured or broke the skin

*was bittenon the face, neck or hand, foot, or near a joint

*has a bite or scratch that's becoming red, hot, swollen, or increasingly painful

*is behind on shots or hasn't had a recent tetanus shot

WHEN SEEKING TREATMENT, HAVE THE FOLLOWING ISFORMATION ON HAND:

*the kind of animal that bit the child

*the date of the animal's last rabies vaccination  if known

*any recent unusual behavior by the animal

*the animal's lacation (address, if known)

*if the animal was a stray or wild one or was captured by a local animal control servise

* the child's immunization(shots) record.
