What To Do If You Are Bitten by a Dog

The Carroll County Health Department recommends the following if you are bitten:

If you are bitten by a dog or the saliva of a dog is exposed to an open wound on you, wash the area thoroughly with soap and water. Determine if medical attention is needed. If so, the doctor will create an Animal Bite Report and send it to the Carroll County Heath Department. The doctor will also determine if post-exposure prophylaxis. If not, contact the Carroll County Health Department with as much information about the dog and the dog’s owner. If it is determined that the dog should be sent in for rabies testing, the health department will inform you of the results.

What To Do If Your Dog Bites Someone

The Carroll County Health Department recommends the following if your dog bites someone:

If your dog bites someone, it is highly recommended that you quarantine that dog immediately. Quarantine simply means that the dog has no exposure to other animals and very little exposure to humans. Even if the dog is vaccinated, there is a possibility that the animal could have contracted rabies. Contact the Carroll County Health Department so that they can initiate the quarantine waiting period.

If the dog is vaccinated against rabies, it will be quarantined for 10 days and the dog’s rabies vaccination record must be submitted to the Carroll County Health Department. If the dog is not vaccinated, it will be quarantined for 180 days. If the dog is vaccinated, you have the option to take the dog to a licensed veterinarian to have a wellness check completed. The dog will need a rabies vaccination booster with records being sent to the Carroll County Health Department. If the dog is not vaccinated, a wellness check and vaccination must be completed by a licensed veterinarian and the records must be sent to the health department.

Once the health department receives the proper documentation, they will release the dog from quarantine. Under no circumstances does the Carroll County General Health District order the animal to be impounded or euthanized unless the dog poses a direct risk to the public health due to a rabies.
