Monroe County Requirements When a Dog Bites

To comply with Ohio laws, anyone who has been bitten by a dog must file a dog bite report with the Monroe County Health Department within 24 hours.

The Monroe County Health Department is also required to quarantine all dogs that bite people. The quarantine period is for no less than 10 days and is usually done at the dog owner’s home. Any costs associated with quarantining a dog are the responsibility of the dog’s owner, harborer or keeper.

The reason for the quarantine is to make sure the dog does not have rabies. If the dog does have rabies, the symptoms of rabies will be seen during the 10-day quarantine period.
