Health Tip: Avoid Animal Bites

(HealthDay News) -- Even the most friendly of cats and dogs can inadvertently bite you or a loved one, which could lead to an infection.

The American Academy of Family Physicians offers these suggestions to help prevent animal bites:
  • Small children should never be left unattended with any animal.
  • If you see animals fighting, avoid trying to separate them.
  • Don't approach or touch animals that appear sick, or any animals with which you're not familiar.
  • Never touch or bother an animal that is eating.
  • Always keep your pets on a leash when away from home.
  • Choose your family pets wisely, and make sure to keep their vaccinations current.
