A RECORD OF EXCELLENCE AND SUCCESS
Each year in the U.S., dogs bite 4.5 million people. More than 800,000 of these dog bite victims seek medical treatment, and more than 300,000 find that help at hospital emergency rooms, according to the Centers for Disease Control. The number of dog bite cases requiring surgery exceeds 30,000 a year. Worst of all, dog attacks cause fatalities: 38 in the United States in the year 2012. More than half of all dog bite victims are small children. Dog owners should act to protect others, and parents should teach children to avoid provoking dogs and to avoid strange dogs altogether. Amputations, disfigurement, and long-term psychological injuries are often the results of dog bite attacks.
