Healing from a dog bite can be brutal

Those who suffer from a dog bite need to be aware that the issues they face may last for a long time. Healing is not always the simple, straightforward process that people often assume it is. It can actually be a brutal process that is, in some ways, far worse than the pain from the initial injury.

The risk of animal bite infections

In Illinois, when a person is bitten by someone else's pet, that owner will often have to take financial responsibility. However, the victim is the one who will need to tend to their injuries. Unfortunately, some bites can be more dangerous than others. They may carry the risk of infection, scarring, or other health issues.

Which animals are most likely to have rabies?

The incidence of rabies among domestic animals in Illinois is increasingly low thanks to the prevalence of vaccination for pets. As a result of such initiatives, 90% of all reported rabies cases in North America involve wildlife. It may be helpful for you to know which species are most likely to carry rabies. This way, you can better protect yourself, your family and your pets.
