Your first instinct as a dog bite victim should be to seek immediate medical assistance. Report the dog bite to the nearest health service provider, then the San Mateo County Animal Control. The Daly City animal control agency will pick your pet and quarantine it for approximately 10 days as part of due procedure. 

Next, hire an experienced animal control Burlingame attorney, especially one specializing in animal-related personal injury law.
