Dog Bite in Tehama County
Approximately five million people are bitten
by dogs in the nation every year and California
is the leader with the greatest number of dangerous
bites that cause injury or death. A mushrooming
number of these victims are forced to go to local
emergency rooms to treat serious and potentially
fatal injuries. In fact, dog bites are the second
most prevalent injuries requiring medical attention
in local and state emergency rooms in California.
Although any dog is potentially dangerous, there are specific breeds that are more inclined to cause serious harm than others. Akitas, Pit Bulls, and Rottweilers are commonly found in American homes and are accountable for a majority of the gravest injuries. Children are the most common victims of dog maulings, and they are most often bitten on the face. Harrowing attacks also have extensive economic costs as expensive hospital charges and rehabilitation therapy can be formidable.
