How to treat a dog bite in the emergency room
A dog bite victim who received a catheter-based emergency care at the Gwinnett County veterinary clinic was given an emergency rabies shot by a veterinarian.
The dog bite case occurred at the Catheter &Gym clinic on March 4th.
The woman, a female, was brought to the clinic by her neighbor who reported the attack.
The dog was seen running around the property and then the owner came to check on the dog.
When the owner asked the woman what was wrong, she said her dog had been bitten and it was a cat bite.
The owner also told her the dog was “sick”.
The owner called the police and the cat was taken to the Gwennet County Veterinarian’s Office.
A veterinarian evaluated the dog and confirmed it was rabies-positive.
The cat was then put in a carrier and sent home.
The clinic is open Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 7 a.b.m to 4 p..m..
They do not accept appointments on Sundays.
