Monday evening my 57 yr old sister was bitten on the nose by her dog. she said he grab it and shook it like a toy. She sent me a picture and it looks real bad, it is very swollen and a 3 to 4 deep gashes near the tip of the nose and quite a few more that do not look quite as deep.The whole nose is just a mess. We have tried to get her to see a dr but she refuses. She had a tinus shot last year but we are afraid this may lead into a staff infection if she does not get treatment, do you have any suggestions?
