Dog Bite First Aid For Animal Bite

Animal or insect  bite can be very painful. So what should we do when an insect or animal bites or scratches a person. Turmeric paste is always helpful and antiseptic in such bites and scratches for immediate relief.

    Wash the wound immediately with running water and anti bacterial soap Apply an antiseptic lotion on the bite area of the body and cover with a clean cloth. Dogs or monkeys bite can cause dangerous disease known as rabies. So visit to a learned doctor to get anti rabies vaccination.

Snakebite-

All snakes in the world are not dangerous and poisonous. But bite of a poisonous snake may be very dangerous. If the person gets treatment immediately he can be treated. If a person is bitten by a snake, keep the person calm and let him sit and relax. Keep the affected limb below the heart level to reduce the flow of poison. Bandage the affected limb by a bandage or cloth with a tight knot but not too much tight. Never try to suck out the poison by mouth as seen in some movies. It can be dangerous.



Dog Bite-

Dogs are our best friends, but dogs are animals and they can bite. In Although pet dog or strange dogs can bite, most of the time people are actually bitten by a dog they know, which could be a friend's dog or even the family pet.
How to prevent dog bites-
  • Always stay away from any dogs you don't know.
  • Never leave young children alone with a dog especially an unfamiliar one. It can be dangerous to you.
  • Never play with any dog that is eating or feeding her puppies. Whenever you approach a dog, do slowly, and give the dog the chance to approach you.
  • If a dog becomes aggressive, do not run away or scream. Stay calm, move slowly, and don't make eye contact with the dog.

Cat Bite-

Cat is a common cute pet in many houses. Cat’s bites are common injuries, especially in children. Treating a cat bite should always start with the safety including the patient and the rescuer.
The following steps may be taken at the place wherever the bite occurred. As for all animal bites, you should always consult with a qualified physician right away to confirm if further action is needed. All animal bites carry an increased risk for infection. 

Steps that should be taken

1.   Secure the cat or the patient, or both. Move one away from the other. If the cat's known owner is around, tell him to secure the cat. If not, move the patient to a safe location. Cats may bite or scratch if frightened or their kittens are threatened, so leave them alone. Don't start any treatment until there is a reasonable expectation that the cat won't attack again.

2. Practice precautions and wear protection in the hands if available.

3.  First control the bleeding by using direct pressure and elevation. Avoid using a tight bandage unless there is severe bleeding that cannot be controlled any other way. That's unlikely unless the cat is a mountain lion. In the event that direct pressure cannot be maintained for an extended amount of time, direct pressure can be achieved using a dressing.

.                4.  Once the bleeding is controlled, clean wound with soap and warm water            and an antiseptic soap.

5. Cover the wound with a clean, dry dressing. You can put antibiotic ointment on the bite before covering, but that is not absolutely necessary. These bites  and scratches can lead to infection, however. Watch for these signs of infection:

1.   Redness

2.   Swelling

3.   Heat

4.   Pus

·   Consult your doctor. The cut may need stitches. Since they are often deep, cat bites and scratches are of particular concern for infection. Again, regardless of how severe you think the bite is, always consult a physician right away.

·    Wounds on the face or hands should always be evaluated by a doctor because of the likelihood of scarring and potential loss of function.

·    Any unidentified cat runs the risk of carrying rabies. If the cat cannot be identified and the owner cannot show proof of rabies vaccination, the patient must seek medical attention. Rabies is always fatal to humans if not treated.

So it is clear that we all love pets and we should love them but we should always take care of ourselves and children from animal bites or scratches. Always consult a doctor whenever you get an animal bite or scratch.

  1. I was not really having a problem breathing at first. My throat was burning; I thought I had strep throat. I had pain in my neck, and there was swelling around my collar bone. The first doctor I went to said he did not know why there was swelling. He gave me antibiotics and told me that if the swelling was not better to come back in two weeks. I went back in two weeks and he said he did not know what was wrong. Since I do not have insurance, I went to a hospital emergency room, and they said I h
