 Bites
 

If your dog is ever bit by another dog make sure you get him or her directly to a veterinarian as soon as possible for a antibiotic shot. Sometimes a bit can be deeper than it looks or cause a serious infection under the skin. It is better to be safe than VERY sorry! 

BEWARE - If an infection occurs then you could be walking & caring for your dog for a very long time with a drainage tube sticking out of its side so take heed.

If your dog has a scab never pick, remove or clean it before getting him to the vet. However, if your pet is bleeding and it won't stop then apply pressure.
