Animal Bite Treatment
First Aid Treatment
- Wash the wound with physiological salt solution or clean water.
- Cleanse the wound with soapy water or sterilizing water.
- If there are large number of bleedings from the wound, press the wound directly to stop the bleeding and bandage the wound.
- Send to a doctor (instructed by doctor if a hydrophobia vaccine is needed).
For bites by dog, cat or other wild animals, there is possibility of hydrophobia, thus the biting animal shall be observed for at least 15 days to check if it is infected of hydrophobia.
