Bite wounds caused by other animals are very common. Even small wounds should be treated as soon as possible as bite wounds have a high risk of infection.
Within several days after a bite happens an abscess may form which will require greater treatments at more cost. Bite wounds can also be very serious from the damage they can do. A bite wound on the skin may appear small but the damage done under the skin can be substantial.
Have all bite wounds checked as soon as possible. Most minor wounds require only a cleaning and starting some antibiotic treatment.
Our veterinarians will examine your pet to determine the severity of the wound and discuss with you the best treatment.
