A man in New Delhi, India was recently booked for allegedly attacking three people and striking a pet dog with iron pipe after it barked at him. According to the police, he was walking on the street when a pet dog started barking at him.
During a minor scuffle with the pet owner, he was reportedly bitten by the canine following which he hit the dog with an iron pipe. In this context people were curious to know do’s and don’ts of dog bites and to bust the myth, Dr. Vinod Sharma, Head of Veterinary Services, DCC Animal Hospital shared his thoughts and guidance on the topic.
Dr. Sharma highlighted that the issue is lack of awareness in India, we must care of our street animals and get them timely vaccinated which is good for the health of the dog and also good for people as the risk is averted. Preventive care is better than cure. Rabies takes up so many lives in India so we must ensure we do our bit. Vaccine efficacy plays an equally important role.
Also the article talks of immediate measures to take in case you get a wound from a dog bite to minimise risk.
