What Are The Top Reasons Why Canines Bite?

Dogs bite for all kinds of different reasons. You could be delivering a package and be attacked by a vicious dog without the slightest warning. Therefore, anytime you leave your delivery van, it is crucial to use common sense and never let your guard down. The most common reasons that dogs bite include the following:

  1. The dog was startled;
  2. It felt threatened or scared;
  3. The dog was responding to a stressful situation;
  4. The canine was injured or not feeling well;
  5. The dog was trying to defend itself or its territory;
  6. Parents were trying to protect their puppies;
  7. The dog is guarding its owner; or
  8. The canine is trying to play by biting or nipping.

Just like people, certain dogs can suddenly snap without much cause. Even if the dog did not show any aggression and you did not provoke it, there are still numerous cases that owners simply cannot explain. For this reason, it is important to remember the above triggers and always watch out, especially around unfamiliar dogs.



Vital Steps To Reduce Your Risk Of Infection

Rochester, New York Amazon Delivery Person Dog Bite Accident AttorneysWhen a canine bites, its front teeth grab and crush the victim’s tissue, while its smaller teeth tear the skin. This typically results in deep and jagged wounds. Open bites pose a risk of various diseases, such as rabies and tetanus. Additionally, there are numerous types of bacteria in the mouths of canines that can easily lead to infection. Approximately half of all dog bites introduce bacteria, including capnocytophaga, streptococcus, pasteurella, and staphylococcus, into the victim. When a wound gets infected, it is usually very severe, especially for victims with weakened immune systems or diabetes. Therefore, you must take vital safety measures to remedy your wounds and minimize the risk of a serious infection. If a dog bites you, take these steps immediately:

  1. Thoroughly wash your wound out using mild soap and run warm water over it for at least 5 minutes;
  2. Stop the bleeding by applying pressure with a clean cloth;
  3. Apply antibiotic cream;
  4. Wrap the wound with a hygienic bandage; and
  5. Change the bandage regularly until you see a doctor.

Watch out for signs and symptoms of infection, such as increased pain, fever, shaking, swelling, redness, or drainage around the wound. If you suffer any of the same or have not had a tetanus shot within the last 5 years, you should seek professional medical treatment within 8 hours of getting bit. Waiting any longer drastically increases your risk of developing a severe infection. A doctor will flush out bacteria from your wound, examine for nerve and bone damage, and prescribe you antibiotics to ward off bacteria and prevent infection.

Under New York law, an Amazon driver’s permission to enter a customer’s property is implied.
