How to Treat Animal Wounds
If you or a loved one are the victim of a dog bite or other animal attack, you should treat it immediately because open wounds can lead to infections.
- Minor Wounds - Wash with soap and water, apply an antibiotic ointment, and cover with a bandage. Monitor the wound.
- Deep wounds - Apply pressure with a clean cloth and seek medical attention.
- Stray or Wild Animals - Even if the wound seems mild, call your physician for advice and/or seek medical attention. Strays are unlikely to be vaccinated properly and wild animals carry numerous diseases including rabies.
What to Do After a Dog Bite or Animal Attack in Sioux City, IA
- Exchange contact information with the animal's owners. If they are unavailable or uncooperative, you may need to note their address, license plate, or get their information from neighbors or witnesses.
- Photograph the wounds - Taking pictures of all bites, bruises, scrapes, and scratches will allow you to monitor the wounds in case they get worse, and document them for police reports, medical claims, or lawsuits.
- Report the incident to Sioux City Animal Adoption and Rescue Center. Use the emergency number (712) 279-6170 to report the attack. This report is further documentation should you need it and can potentially help Animal Control prevent future animal attacks.
- File a police report with your local police department. While this may sound extreme at first, a police report is more documentation to support your claims if you need it to sue for dog bite injuries and compensation.
- Consult an attorney. If you have experienced financial strain due to medical bills and/or lost wages, a quick Google of "dog bite lawyer in Sioux City, IA" will pull up local attorneys who can help you determine if you have a case.
