Dog Bite Scarring

The American Veterinary Medical Association states that, of the 4.5 million dog bite incidents that occur every year, more than 800,000 require medical attention. According to the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, more than half of all dog bite victims are children. Most commonly, dog bite victims tend to be boys between the ages of five and nine. It is important to remember that any breed of dog is capable of biting and that we should not approach dogs with whom we are not familiar. Parents should remind their children to take the same precautions. Remember, you should always ask the dog’s owner or handler if it is okay to approach or pet their dog.

Dogs can bite anywhere on the body but will most frequently bite victims on their face, neck, hands, or ears. If a bite penetrates the middle layer of the skin (called the dermis), it could lead to scarring. Scarring is a natural part of the body’s healing process after an injury. While there are several different types of scars, the two types that might result from a dog bite are keloid scars and hypertrophic scars.

Keloid scars typically appear lumpy and red or discolored, and they can spread away from the initial injury site. Keloid scars result from the over-production of the skin protein collagen during the healing process. These scars can cause limited mobility, especially if they form on or near a joint.

Hypertrophic scars appear raised from the skin, and, like keloid scars, they can sometimes appear lumpy. Hypertrophic scars also result from the over-production of collagen, though usually not to the extent of a keloid scar. Unlike keloid scars, hypertrophic scars do not spread away from the initial injury point, and they do not usually impact mobility.

Scars can be treated, but the treatment is not always effective. It can take years before there is any noticeable difference. Have you suffered from a dog bite?

Long-Term Consequences Of A Dog Bite Scar

Victims of dog bite attacks suffer long-term mental and physical consequences. If a victim develops a scar from a dog bite, the scar may serve as a reminder of the incident for the rest of the victim’s life.

Scars may have many long-term impacts on a victim, including:

1) Disfiguration;

2) The need for further surgical procedures;

3) Loss of mobility; and

4) Pain.

The impact of scars goes beyond the physical mark. Scars can have a psychological impact on the health of a dog bite victim. Confidence and happiness are tightly linked with appearance. Disfiguration from scarring, especially on the face or neck, can negatively impact both a victim’s perception of their appearance. Scars also remind the victim of the trauma of the attack, which can have negative repercussions for the victim’s mental health.
