Dog bites are a serious problem in America today. According to the U.S. Department of Human and Health Services, more than 800,000 Americans seek medical treatment for dog bites each year.
Victims of animal attacks, including those from dog bites and other animal-inflicted injuries, are at risk for infection and may require plastic surgery to reconstruct damaged parts of the body and to prevent or mitigate permanent scars.
