    The symptoms of dog attack injuries

    The symptoms of dog attack injuries can vary greatly, depending on the nature of the attack. When puppies are learning about play, they can become overzealous and their ‘attacks’ can result in bites and scratches to their owners. However, these are usually minor injuries and can be treated with over-the-counter remedies from your pharmacist.

    The symptoms of dog attack injuries

    For a mild bite or scratch, you will probably notice pain, itching and swelling around the affected area. If the skin is punctured, then some slight bleeding might occur. It is good to encourage this, by gently pressing around the affected area. Indeed, the flow of blood can help to prevent infection from entering the wound.

    In more aggressive attacks however, then situation can be much more serious. Deep lacerations, and fractures can cause intense pain for the victim and they should seek medical help as soon as possible. If a dog bite punctures a large organ, then any blood loss could be life threatening. Call 999 for an ambulance if you are involved in, or witness such an attack.
