Don't Let a Dog Attack Bite Your Wallet

Have you ever been walking or jogging down the street when a dog notices you and starts to chase after you? It doesn’t take a dog very long to catch a pedestrian. If you’re lucky, the dog will nip at your ankles. If you’re unlucky, you could be knocked down and bitten repeatedly.

If the dog is a stray, you’re going to require treatment for rabies. Your wounds will need stitches, and if you fell and hit your head, you could also need x-rays. Your emergency room visit will cost you a pretty penny, and if you can’t work while you’re recovering, you’ll lose income.

I was attacked by a dog. What should I do now?

Each year in the United States, some 800,000 people are treated for injuries caused by dog bites, which is equal to one person heading to the emergency room every 40 seconds. Victims spend nearly $165 million having their wounds treated. Children are the most likely victims. They are usually bitten on the face.

There are some breeds that are regularly involved in unprovoked attacks on innocent passers-by. The five breeds most likely to attack a person are pit bulls, Rottweilers, German shepherds, Dobermans and chows. These dogs are known for causing massive trauma to their victims due to their size and ferocity.
