This week is National Dog Bite Prevention week, and the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), the United States Postal Service, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are each working to educate Americans about dog bite prevention. Each year about 4.7 million humans are bitten by dogs, particularly children, the elderly, and Postal Service carriers. Dog bite victims account for up to five percent of emergency room visits. Experts believe that public education can help prevent these bites from happening.
