Dog and Cat Bites

Herbal treatments for bites caused by dogs and cats to care for wounds caused by aggressive biting.

Animals routinely experience irregularities in bodily systems, including the Central and Autonomic Nervous systems, requiring a correction to restore emotional balance, to promote relaxation and reduce nervousness and to balance mood and provide feelings of comfort and security.

Many dogs and cats experience emotional distress for a variety of reasons, including environmental and situational stressors such as the introduction of a new or young animal (puppy or kitten), loss of a family member or family pet, separation from owners, visiting guests, transitional or traumatic events, abuse, an inappropriate diet (one which contains processed foods including corn, wheat, soy or other fillers) and general anxiety that includes irregular behaviors manifest as urine marking, excessive barking, biting and scratching.

Dogs of all breeds, size and age bite. They often get into fights with other dogs when they are allowed to run loose and are not trained properly. While some dogs do have a more aggressive temperament than others, biting is essentially the canine’s way of showing dominance.

Many pet owners choose to wait until something serious happens before they actually act on it. However, the problem can be corrected with early socialization and effective communication.

Young puppies and new dogs like to bite during play or when teething. If your puppy is under six months, it is your duty to inhibit biting. A puppy learns to inhibit his bite from his mother or other members of the litter.

When he is taken away from the litter, he may or may not have risen to the leader of the pack, and as a result, uses biting to establish his ranking in a new environment. Socializing your puppy early is extremely important to prevent biting, aggression, fearfulness and other inappropriate behaviors.

Exposing your puppy to new experiences, places, animals and sounds and taking him to obedience school will help to correct biting. Your dog needs to learn to obey commands, respect and trust you and most of all, know that you are now the leader of pack.

Pet owners also have to be responsible and tend to overlook certain things which may cause their dog to bite. Keep your dog on a leash when you are outside, do not leave small children unsupervised, play aggressive games or expose them to dogs that you are unsure of.

Often, pet owners may decide to get a new playmate for their dog. Be sure to research the breed that you intend on getting – they would need to be compatible with each other, thereby preventing unnecessary aggressive behavior.

If a dog or cat bites, complete the following steps:

Thoroughly wash the area with warm water. Then wash it again for five minutes with soap and water. Rinse the wound. Put gauze on for 24 hours.

Check the dog's vaccination record if possible (ask the owner). If not possible, the dog will have to be observed and checked.

Children should be instructed to stay away from strange animals. They should be supervised at all times.

It is recommended that you see a doctor in case you need stitches or other treatments.
