Domestic Animal Bites
Bitten or Exposed to Wild Animal
​Tips to help prevent dog bites:
  1. Pet Sterilization - Animals that are not spayed or neutered, particularly male dogs, may be at increased risk of biting people
  2. Do not leave your dog on a chain for long periods of time - chained dogs are more likely to bite
  3. Don't put your dog in situations where it may feel threatened or teased
  4. Follow leash laws and don't let your dog roam freely off of your property
  5. Make sure your dog is vaccinated against rabies by a veterinarian
  6. Socialize your dog so it feels at ease around people and other animals
