Man’s best friend, personal companion, stress reliever, and a child’s buddy. These are some of the phrases we use to describe dogs and the jobs that they do. They are cute, cuddly, fluffy, needy, stubborn, sometimes stinky, and loveable. But let us not forget that dogs are animals, and like humans, they need to be respected.
Dog bites are painful and can cause injury. If bitten or wounded by a dog, wash it with soap and clean water. Put antibiotic cream and use a sterile bandage to cover it. For deep wounds, after cleaning it, apply pressure. Most importantly, visit a medical provider immediately or call 911 if you feel dizzy or weak after the injury.
According to Section 767.01 of the Florida Statutes, “Owners of dogs shall be liable for any damage done by their dogs to a person or to any animal included in the definitions of “domestic animal” and “livestock” as provided by s. 585.01.”.
