Can being liked by a pet dog cause any infection in a child?
Hello. Thank you for your question. This is a very common occurrence. I wouldn't worry about a dog who was with the owner at the time of the incident. This is as opposed to a stray dog. I recommend treating the cut like I would any other abrasion. Application of any over the counter antibiotic ointment, 2 to 3 times per day.
