1: Animals, cute until they bite you! | By: Rachel Heigaard

2: One day a small child was playing at the park. A woman was walking her dog and let's him off the leash a little bit so he can wonder around. | The owner was on her phone and wasn't paying attention and the dog goes over and bites the small child. | The owner was on her phone and wasn't paying attention and the dog goes over and bites the small child.

3: The dog starts to go near the child but the woman isn't paying attention, because she's on her phone. The dog then proceeds to bite the small child.

4: Symptoms and Identifying the Injury: | *If it was just a dog bite you need to find out if the dog had rabies and if it does you need to get your rabies vaccination *you need to also look for any side effects like infections including tetanus, an often fatal disease

5: * | *tetanus can easily be prevented by keeping your immunization shots up to date

6: Incorrect ways of responding to the situation and the injury: | *capturing the animal if you find it again *not reporting the incident *not treating your injury at all it's serious *not seeing your doctor or going to the hospital if it's serious enough

8: Correct way to respond to situation: | *report your injury to your Community health Dept. or Animal Control *To help clean regular non-serious First Aid bites: -wash the bite area with mild soap -use direct pressure on the wound -if the wound is swollen, apply ice wrapped in a towel for 10 min. -cover the wound with a clean dressing or bandage

10: The Recovery Process: | If the animal bite gave you an infection like tetanus it can be treated but the treatment is long, difficult and often unsuccessful. If it was just a bite and you didn't get any infections or diseases you can just clean it up at home and it should be completely healed up in about a week.
