August 20th, 2018| Dogs are becoming accepted and allowed in more and more public places. It’s not uncommon to see dogs in stores, restaurants, and even at workplaces. While most dogs are friendly, any dog can bite without warning—even if they’ve never acted out in an aggressive manner in the past. That’s why local ordinances throughout California require that dog owners keep their pets on leashes or in enclosures when other people are around. Unfortunately, some dog owners either fail to abide by those requirements or they allow their dogs to get too close to others. When that happens, the risk of an attack increases, especially when dogs are frightened or stressed. If you or someone you love were bitten by a dog, you know how painful the injury can be. Dogs have long, sharp teeth that can severely damage skin and nerves and cause severe blood loss. The puncture wounds their teeth inflict can also result in severe infection.
