15. A friend of mine was severely bitten in hand by her dog

She bled profusely and had to have stitches. A close neighbor thankfully was able to respond and take her to emergency room. However she was afraid to tell doctor what had happened and made up story about having accident with a serrated knife, because doctors are required to notify Animal Control authorities in our county. Doctor did not give her antibiotics. When she called me about the incident that evening I emphatically explained to her that she needed to get on antibiotics immediately and thankfully she had a bottle of unused antibiotics left from a dental procedure that she had not used and her meds were the exact type of antibiotic recommended for a dog bite and she recovered nicely.
