Dog bites

Posted by Eileen on Tuesday 9th January 2024 at 11:51:33
A man I know has been bitten by a dog. The teeth punctured the skin and the man is now in hospital with septicaemia (blood poisoning caused by bacteria.)  

I don't have any details, but as a general rule, never be too hasty to pat a dog that you don't know. Stand still and let the dog approach you, smell you, and decide whether it likes you. Let it smell the back your hand in a relaxed manner before you touch the dog. 

Don't stick your hand through a fence, gate, or car window in order to pat a dog. The dog may see this as an invasion of the territory he is guarding, and may bite. Talk to the dog quietly but if the dog growls, back away.

Dog bites can cause tetanus, so get an injection against this urgently. A pharmacy, or doctor's room, or outpatients can usually do this.

We dog-lovers tend to think that every dog likes us, and every dog is cuddly, but it sometimes takes time for a dog to trust us. God gave man dominion over the animals and he also gave us common sense to respect and understand animals for our mutual good. Genesis 1, verses 26 - 31.
