A recipe for dog bite injuries: Kids, dogs and warm weather
Date:3/19/2009

or identified as the attacker, because of their notoriety. However, Behar notes that the breed of dog often wasn't known or wasn't recorded.

"Doctors, nurses and others involved in treating the injuries need to be educated to collect precise information," she emphasizes. "It's very useful to know the specifics: Was the dog provoked and was the child supervised adequately?"

Health care providers should collect as much information as possible, including breed and sex of the dog, spay or neuter status, history of aggression, ownership and owner's use of restraint, time of the incident, the child's past history of dog bites, location of the incident and the dog's vaccination history.

"This information is important to be able to identify trends and develop and promote prevention strategies," says Behar.
