Proper dog bite treatment for a minor bite is a fairly simple process. Since all dog bites carry a risk of infection, this risk can be greatly reduced by cleaning the wound immediately.
While some dog breeds are considered more aggressive than others, almost any dog can attack when threatened. For severe bites, you should immediately consult a doctor. In case of a serious bite or bite, calling 112 is the best option. However, if the bite is small, you may decide to treat the wound yourself.
Here are nine dog bite treatment tips for small bites:
1. Wash the wound gently with soap and water. Betadine soap is the best.
2. Press the wound with a clean cloth or cloth to stop the bleeding.
3. After the bleeding has stopped, apply an antibiotic ointment such as neosporine to the puncture site to help prevent infection.
4. Cover the wound with a sterile dressing.
5. If possible, elevate the injured area above the heart to help reduce swelling.
6. If you think it is necessary, call your doctor or take the bitten person to an emergency room.
7. Report the incident to the local authorities at your discretion. This could be a police or city animal shelter.
8. Follow the doctor’s advice and continue the treatment. This may include taking antibiotics and dressing the wound daily. Change the dressings and ointments twice a day without consulting a doctor until the wound heals.
9. If you suspect an infection after trying to self-treat, call your doctor to make an appointment to view the wound.
Following these simple steps should reduce any complications from the bite. My personal advice is to see your doctor if there is any bleeding.
If you don’t know the biting dog and can’t tell if it’s sick, you should call the doctor because the risk of rabies is always present. Although rabies infection from livestock is quite rare these days, rabies is always a possibility that needs to be addressed because of government-prescribed vaccinations.
In short, use common sense to call your doctor when you need it. Clean the wound, stop the bleeding, keep antibacterial ointment and a clean bandage on the wound.
Dog Vaccinations – The Facts
Bailey is a three-year-old bull terrier who was the love of life of Maruchy Perez.
Maruchy is a singer who worked on a Disney ship in Port Canaveral the summer Bailey was born (half her luck – sounds like a great way to live!).
Maruchy had been researching the breed for two years before meeting a breeder about five hours from where Maruchy lived.
Bailey was born on July 4 in Brooksville, 40 miles north of Tampa. Breeders sent trash photos to Maruchy after they were born, and Maruchy chose Bailey from the many photos she received on the Disney ship.
About nine weeks later, Bailey went home with Marucci and she was everything Marucci had hoped for. She’s in a hurry, but it’s fun.
But it wasn’t long before the challenge began. Maruchy noticed that Bailey was very ill, with hives, vomiting or diarrhea, or a combination of all three. Maruchy took Bailey to the vet several times, who usually gave her cortisone for her hives and pills to prevent dehydration.
Bailey was vaccinated against rabies when she was four months old.
Over the next four months, Bailey went from a cute little puppy to a very annoying and aggressive dog with big teeth.
Maruchy spoke to vets, breeders, trainers and anyone she thought could help. Bailey got so aggressive that at one point it seemed like everyone was saying “put her down”.
Maruchy couldn’t bear the thought. She was desperate for a better solution. After living in fear for another month, Maruchy contacted an “animal communicator,” Diane Samsel, who told Maruchy to immediately remove Bailey from the commercial dog food she was taking and seek a holistic doctor. The animal communicator also advised Maruchy to let the holistic doctor know that Bailey has an “autoimmune vaccine disease.”
Maruchy did exactly what the animal correspondent suggested. She quit commercial dog food and consulted with a holistic doctor, knowing Bailey was a very sick puppy and determined to save Bailey from a terrible fate.
Bailey showed signs of improvement within two days of completely stopping commercial dog food! Maruchy started her on raw food only and went to a wonderful doctor who agreed to consult with Maruchy and treat Bailey. Led by animal communicators, Maruchy guided and helped doctors give Bailey the holistic medicine she needed to get her back on track.

Maruchy’s understanding of autoimmune vaccines is that it occurs when the body is given so much poison through a vaccine that the body begins to reject its own organs. In Bailey’s case, her body was rejecting her liver. Unable to restrain herself, Bailey was very upset and her behavior was reminiscent of the past when bull terriers actively encouraged aggression to fight them. From a holistic perspective, the liver is also considered a container for emotions, including anger.
Who are the candidates for an autoimmune vaccine? In principle, everything with life and organs can be poisoned by injecting so-called “antiviruses” into the body. In other words, pets are at very high risk due to the very high number and frequency of so-called basic vaccinations. And because the dose of the vaccination doesn’t necessarily take into account the size of the animal, small dogs may be at greater risk than larger dogs. But any dog can be susceptible.
Now that Maruchy has cleared vaccines and pet poisons from Bailey’s system, she is very careful not to expose Bailey to other poisons – including household chemicals.
