The treatment for dog bites can be extensive and expensive

Have you or a loved one been attacked by a dog? If the answer is yes, then you know just how traumatizing this type of event can be. Treating dog bites can be both extensive and expensive, depending on the severity of the wound. So, along with the physical and psychological damage that victims endure, the financial effects can also be devastating in a number of ways.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are approximately 4.5 million dog bites each year in the United States. While that number is certainly staggering, another equally concerning statistic reported by the ASPCA is that roughly half of all dog-bite victims that seek medical attention are actually children.
