Abstract

Every year, large numbers of people are bitten by animals, and a smaller number by humans. The consequences can be serious. However, better health education to help prevent bites and teaching a bite-avoidance strategy when someone is being treated for a bite may help to reduce the problem. This article discusses treatment options and the possible complications of bite wounds.
