Animal or human bites can be infected with bacteria or viruses, so it is important to flush out the wound thoroughly to reduce the risk of infection.

  • Irrigate the wound thoroughly with large quantities of water.
  • Treat for bleeding if necessary.
  • Pat the wound dry and cover with a sterile low-adherent dressing.
  • Seek medical advice. Take or send the casualty to hospital of the wound is large or deep.
