      MAKE ANIMAL BITES FEEL ALRIGHT

      Animal bites are never fun, and usually scary. Even bites your kids get at school can be hard to recover from. But with these tips, you can really bite back:
       

      • Wash and cover.
        After applying pressure to stop the bleeding, gently wash with soap and water, apply an antibiotic ointment and cover with a bandage.
      • Visit your doctor.
        If you were bit by an animal, wild or domestic, it’s good to follow up with your doctor as soon as you can. If you were bit by a child or an animal and the bleeding doesn’t stop, there are signs of redness and fever, you may want to seek immediate medical attention.
