Animal Bites

Urgent Care Animal Bites

Animal Bites are usually not life-threatening, yet in the event of infection or rabies they can pose a serious risk. 

In the event that a creature bites you or your kid, follow these rules:

  1. Don’t Risk Rabies. If the animal is one of these listed as a rabies risk and it breaks the skin, seek medical help immediately. Rabies can be fatal.
  • Raccoons
  • Skunks
  • Bats
  • Foxes
  • Coyotes

Household pets usually cause most bitesDomestic mammals can also get rabies. Cats, cattle, and dogs are the most frequently reported rabid domestic animals in the United States. You should seek medical evaluation for any animal bite you’re unsure of.

2. Clean Every Wound. In the event that the bite scarcely breaks the skin and there’s no risk of rabies, regard it as a minor injury. Wash the injury with cleanser and water. Apply an anti-infection cream to counteract contamination and cover the bite with a spotless wrap. Summit Urgent Care treats Lacerations as well. 

Don’t Risk Infection. In the event that you see indications of disease, for example, swelling, redness, expanded torment or overflowing, come see us quickly.

3. Stay Vaccinated. We suggest getting a tetanus injection at regular intervals. On the off chance that your last one was over five years back and your injury is contaminated or filthy, visit us for quickly to assess the problem. We also offer Tetanus vaccines.
