What To Do If Bitten By A Dog in Ottawa County

When a dog bites someone in Ottawa County, it must be reported to the Ottawa County Health Department within 24 hours for further action and investigation. The Ottawa County Animal Bite Report Form can be downloaded via this link: Animal Bite Report

A dog that has bitten someone will need to be detained and quarantined for a period of 10 days for observation. During a rabies quarantine, the dog must be confined in a building, in a pen or on a chain at all times. The dog must be kept under control of its owner, harborer or keeper until the quarantine period is over and the dog has been examined and evaluated by a licensed veterinarian.

If the dog cannot be properly quarantined and kept under control by its owner, harborer or keeper, the dog will be ordered to be quarantined with a veterinarian or as directed by the Ottawa County Health District.
