National Dog Bite Prevention Week is May 20th – 26th. This is a great time to help stop the many dog bites that happen every year.
“Veterinarians recognize, while there are 72 million good dogs in the United States, any dog can bite if it is frightened of feels threatened, even the family pet. Unfortunately, children are most often the victims,” say Dr. Larry M. Kornegay, AVMA Immediate Past President.
The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) provides resources to spread the word that dog attacks are preventable. Children, especially, should be taught the right and the wrong way to interact with dogs. These resources can be found at: http://www.avma.org/public_health/dogbite/default.asp.
