Dog Bite Injuries
A dog bite can produce multiple puncture wounds from a single bite. Dogs have teeth that can penetrate the skin and muscle causing multiple injuries at one time. Each skin puncture from a dog bite is a site for infection to develop
Infection that can occur after a dog bite can be very serious. Although we have all heard the saying, "A dogs mouth is cleaner than a human mouth," the risk of infection after a dog bite is very high. Anything that is introduced into the body through the skin carries bacteria, including the teeth and saliva of a dog. Untreated infection from a dog bite can cause very serious medical complications. Always seek medical attention immediately after you are bitten by a dog.
A dog's jaw can produce a lot of bite pressure; enough to break or fracture bones in the hands and feet easily. Dogs like Rottweilers, Pitbulls, and German Shepherds can produce, on average, 2-3 times the bite pressure of a human. The strong bite pressure along with long, pointed teeth can shatter hands and feet of an adult. Children are even more at risk for serious injury because their bones are not as thick and more fragile.
