Each year, more than 4.7 million people – most of them children – are bitten by dogs. There are 70 million nice dogs, but any dog can bite. This week is National Dog Bite Prevention Week, and provides opportunities to educate everyone about dog bite prevention.
We’ve developed a number of resources to help you spread the messages about dog bite prevention, including articles, podcasts, infographics, and more.
The AVMA’s communication division has produced a new video reinforcing the importance of knowing your dog, acting appropriately around other dogs, and how our actions can help decrease the number of dog bites..
We hope you’ll share this video and other resources with your clients to help educate them about dog bite prevention.
