Dog Bite

I got bit in the hand today by a dog and it's pretty bad. not bad enough to go to the doctor, but it's kinda deep and hurts real bad. I know that there are no rabies because it's my friends dog, but is there anything else I should be worried about. It did break the skin and bleed. Is the doctor necessary?

I agree that your friend should pay for the medical bills - or, as a compromise, at least half of them.

Go get it looked at by doctor.

... but at home(before you see a doctor, because they will tell you what to do afterwards), make sure that you have hydrogen peroxided it.

Be emphatic about your friend getting her dog trained better.

You could also ice your hand. That should help with some of the swelling.

But above all, see a doctor.
