Emergency Care Services for Bite Wounds
When you bring a new animal into your home, you will notice your new pet has occasional cuts, lacerations, and wounds, especially if there are multiple pets. Although bites are common, serious concerns still exist about the possible risks and problems that can arise. Animal ER Care in Colorado Springs, Colorado, addresses these concerns with essential wound care for animal bites your pet has suffered.
Common Bite Wounds
Bites can occur in a variety of different situations, with the most common occurrence happening in fights between animals. A dog fights other dogs, even other pets in your home, as a way of demonstrating their alpha status. A dog or cat may bite another animal, leaving behind a wound, while defending itself. Other bites happen due to a pet's curiosity or poor timing. For example, your pet may surprise a snake and end up with a bite wound. Snake bites are a particular concern because of the potential for severe health complications.
