What should I do if I am bitten by an animal?
The very first thing you should do is clean your wound(s) thoroughly and contact your physician immediately. If your physician is not available, we strongly advise that you call the ambulance squad or visit the nearest emergency room for treatment. Even with the smallest wounds, viruses and disease can be transmitted. If feasible, contact the animal control officer so that he/she can begin attempting to locate the animal(s) which has bitten you.
