The most common injuries sustained due to dog bites include lacerations, puncture wounds, or fractures of the arms and hands. A typical complication from a dog bite is a serious risk of infection. Seek medical attention immediately even if the injury appears to be mild because there is a serious risk of infection from any animal bite. If the bite was caused by a stray dog that cannot be identified, you may have to undergo a series of rabies shots as a precautionary measure.
