Bit by Dog

Recommended Posts

The verb is "bitten," not "bit." -- I was bitten by a dog. 

 

Having gone through this myself, you also should have been given a shot for tetanus, unless you had the three-shot protocol already sometime in the past 10 years.

That's for the first shot, he have to get 3 or four more. The dog should be put down!

Why so angry? The fellow who was bit is chill. You are hysterical.

I thought that was a wader, type of heron. I always say "bited", saves confusion.

Have you seen how many posts he's made? The guy's a Thai Visa stalwart.

 

Give it time and you'll be just the same.

Is the dog still alive? You should also produce the hospital bill to the dog owner.

Often such dogs don't have suddenly any owners. And if you find one and you are without a witness it will be hard to prove that it was his dog.

Every dog in the neighbourhood know I am close to a carnivore diet. They know if they bite me, I will BBQ them for breakfast.

But, on the other hand we do not have rabies in my home country

(long quarantine for any dogs coming in)

Nor do dogs run loose biting 😉

 

Only myself to blame for the following two dog bite anecdotes.

 

I was bit in Thailand, not too deep but there was blood. It was on my first trip and I knew little about the rabies aspect. However, as it was a small domestic dog (that I had reached through a gate to pet), I figured it not to be rabid. I sterilized the bite within two minutes, self treated more and never had a problem. 

I also had a bite in my home country from a domestic dog that had obviously escaped its confines and was running along the sidewalk of a busy main street. I had stopped my travelling to rescue it. This time, I don't think I self treated (maybe I did). However, that night, strange things started happening in my arm. I went to the hospital before midnight, where the doctor said had I waited until morning, I may not have been alive. The dog was normal but dogs do have a high level of bacteria in their saliva.

Good on the OP that he got proper care immediately. So would I if there is a next time (three strikes and you're out).

I guess you didn't read my two confessions which I purposely put there to avoid responses like yours.

1) Only myself to blame for the following two dog bite anecdotes.

2) It was on my first trip and I knew little about the rabies aspect.

 

Have a great Sunday.

Are you Thai or Buddhist? Any dog that attacks humans should be put down.

It is not easy to control the responses you might get on any forum... 

 

you seem to like dogs, so, I could not understand that you don't know that they are territorial and by reaching into the space of a dog you don't know... well, I just don't think I have ever seen someone do that?? 

 

Sorry for your pain... rabies or not it is no fun to get bitten... You seem to like dogs, they are wonderful... get one for your own and it will love you forever. 

 

Thanks - you have a great Sunday too... I have a kid to drive around - I play soccer mom on the weekends..
