Long-Term Psychological Issues From Dog Bite
According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, more than 4.5 million Americans are bitten by dogs each year. Of those, nearly 20 percent require medical attention. This means that approximately 1 million people must be treated for dog bite injuries EVERY YEAR.
While many of the physical wounds and scars eventually heal, dog attacks often result in psychological scars that can take longer to heal, or never go away. This can mean months or even years of expensive therapy, lifelong fear of dogs and even the inability to be in certain social situations.
