Dog Bite Facts & Figures – Infographic

Dogs have long been considered “Man’s best friend.” They are naturally loving and affectionate and extremely loyal. To many, a dog is more than a pet, they are family. These furry companions also bring many health benefits to their owners. Dogs have been proven to help relieve stress, increase exercise, and boost our sense of well-being. Despite their great qualities, dogs are still animals and can bite.

Every year, more than 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs in the U.S. and nearly one in five dog bites results in injuries that require medical care. Dog bites pose a serious risk for scarring and infection. A dog bite can cause pain, injury and nerve damage. A bite can introduce bacteria, causing infection and putting a victim at risk for illness and, in rare cases, death. Any dog can bite, regardless of size or bread or how well-trained the dog may be.
