Dog Bites

A dog's bark may be worse than its bite, but then again, a bite can also be bad.  Being attacked by a dog can be a terrifying experience.  It can leave a victim with serious, even life-threatening injuries.  Every year in the United States, about 1 in 775 people seek emergency care for dog bites.  Most victims are boys between the ages of 5 and 9.  In children younger than 10, bites are usually around the head and neck because the child's head and neck is near the large dog's mouth.
