Treatment for rabies in New Jersey

After a person has been bitten by an animal, it is important to take proper precautions to lower the odds of suffering from rabies. One easy method that has been shown to reduce the odds of contracting rabies is cleaning the wound with clean water or an iodine solution. However, it may be necessary to seek comprehensive post-exposure anti-rabies vaccination from a trained medical professional.

Emergency care for animal bites

New Jersey residents who are victims of a dog bite or another type of animal attack will likely need to visit an emergency room to get the wound treated. Once at the hospital, medical staff may anesthetize the injured area for the comfort of the patient and to allow thorough examination of the bite wound by a doctor.

Make sure your child isn't the victim of a dog bite injury

One of the most traumatic things that can happen to a child is to be the victim of an animal attack. While most domestic animals are friendly and relatively harmless, there are always unknowns when it comes to animals, particularly unfamiliar ones. A seemingly docile or playful dog actually could be a dangerous dog, and things can turn tragic in the blink of an eye. Estimates are that about 4.5 million Americans suffer dog bite injuries every year, and many of those victims are children.

Criminal charges filed against cop over dog bite incident

Feeling threatened by an aggressive animal is often a terrible emotion to endure. If and when the animal lashes out, permanent scars and other reminders from animal attacks can cause a lifetime of heartache. It's bad enough when a person is merely liable for an incident because of their negligence; it's another matter, though, when a dog bite incident is something encouraged by the animal's handler.
