Dogs have been man’s best friend for as long as anyone can recall. By the time the Romans came around, dogs had graduated from being kept as livestock to being useful hunting and war companions. With such a distinguished history in their effort at humans’ sides, dogs truly are man’s best friend. Unfortunately, dogs and other domesticated animals sometimes revert to their pre-domestication state. Humans, as a result, need to give any animal the proper amount of respect in order to avoid injuries.

It does not matter how domesticated an animal may or may not be, people need to remember that animals have a number of instincts that fail to make sense to humans and can be damaging to our health. To help with this, animal owners are expected to keep their pets under control at all times.

Some animals are not kept under control and, unfortunately, this results in millions of Americans being injured by animal attacks each year. It is reported that five million people are hurt or suffer from dog bites annually in the United States alone. Of the five million people injured, one out of every six will require medical attention, sometimes even surgery, for their injuries.

The main cause of dog injuries is their teeth. Depending on the type of dog, the jaws may be exceedingly strong and capable of doing a lot of damage. Common injuries include:

  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Lacerations and cuts
  • Puncture wounds
  • Broken bones
  • Disfigurement
  • Emotional or physical scarring
