Hello

Thanks for the query

I would like to know more about the bite before I come to a conclusion

1.How bad is the bite?
2. Could you please upload the pic of the wound?

I would like you to was the area well with water and betadine as soon as possible. Tetanus shot has to be taken to prevent tetanus infection. If the wound is very bad antibiotics like amox with clavulanic acid should be taken along with regular dressing of the wound .Please ask your doctor for a prescription. Most wounds heal well without any complications.

Please get back to me with the answers, I am awaiting your reply.

I wish you a speedy recovery

Regards
