Rabies is among the worst type of infections you could get from a dog bite. It is a viral infection spread by the saliva of an infected animal, and dogs are some of the most likely animals to spread rabies to people in the modern world. At first, symptoms mimic the flu but severely worsen over time. These symptoms include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- General confusion and anxiety
- Difficulty swallowing
- Excess saliva
- Fear brought on by attempts to drink fluids because of difficulty swallowing water
- Partial paralysis
In severe cases, rabies can lead to paralysis or even death in the dog bite victim. If you have information that the dog was not vaccinated, it’s critical to head to the emergency room to prevent infection from spreading.
Other serious bacterial or viral infections include capnocytophaga bacteria, pasteurella, MRSA staph infections, and tetanus. These can cause serious complications in dog bite victims who have weakened immune systems or who are otherwise compromised by other illnesses and treatments. It is critical that the patient seek immediate medical attention, both to get adequate treatment and to help document the injury in the event of a personal injury case.
