Animal Bites

If you are bitten by an animal, administer First-Aid by pouring cold, soapy water over the wound for 5 minutes.  After a thorough washing, apply a clean, sterile bandage and seek medical attention to prevent further infection.

ALL animal bites are to be reported to your local Law Enforcement Agency.

The animal causing the bite must be taken to a veterinarian the same day as the bite or the next business day.  The animal must be kept away from all non-immediate family members even if the animal has a current rabies vaccination.  If your animal is not current on its rabies vaccination, it must be kept quarantined under the supervision of a licensed veterinarian for a period of 10 days and must be vaccinated before being released.

The cost of a veterinarian quarantine can be 6-10 times the cost of having the animal vaccinated in the first place.  There are NO exemptions to the quarantine procedure if the victim is the pet owner or family member of the pet owner.
