User :   On Saturday I went to the local humane society here near my college campus. One of the dogs I walked jumped up, attempting to bite the leash, and got my arm. The bite was not very serious, did not draw blood, and did not even appear to break the skin. It just looked like a scratch. Everyone has told me that it is no big deal, to not worry about it, I will be fine, but I'm just paranoid by nature. Especially being 16, and being in college away from my family, I am worried, because I dont have my family around to look at it. I do not know whether I should go to the wellness center on campus and have them look or not, I do not want to appear silly or paranoid, but I want to be safe also. The spot where the bite happened is almost completely healed now, and it has only been two days since the incident.
