This week is National Dog Bite Prevention! According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, about 4.5 Million Americans are bitten by dogs each year, and almost a fifth of those incidents require medical attention. Children are the most common victims of dog bites and are more likely to be severely injured. Most dog bites affecting young children occur during everyday activities and while interacting with familiar dogs. Senior citizens are considered the second most common dog bite victims.
There are many things you can do to avoid dog bites, ranging from properly training and socializing your pet to educating your children on how - or if - they should approach a dog.
