Estimates suggest that dog bite wounds account for about ten percent of the traumatic injuries that veterinarians see on a routine basis. Since the dog's mouth is full of bacteria, any bite that does puncture the skin will introduce bacteria or other infectious organisms below the skin surface, where the bacteria can multiply and spread throughout the underlying tissues. Therefore, all bite wounds are considered to be contaminated and/or infected. If you can see obvious bite wounds, you should seek immediate veterinary attention. Wounds that appear to be minor on the surface can be deceptive and may have the potential to be life threatening, depending on the location of the injury. Our Emergency kits were designed with the intention of allowing your dog the best possible chance at survival and may give your animal that extra boost needed in order to arrive in time for Veterinary Treatment.
