HEALED OF DOG BITE

About a year ago, I was standing in a veterinary office waiting to pay a bill. Suddenly, a young dog in the office jumped at me and bit my hand, leaving multiple deep gashes. The young man holding the dog's leash pulled him back and was very frightened, wanting to make sure I was all right.

Onlookers looked stunned as the office manager quickly took me into the lab, where the staff cleaned and bandaged my wounds. The owners of the veterinary clinic insisted it was important that I go to the hospital to have my hand examined and treated with stitches. They even offered to pay for the resulting bills. I thanked the veterinarians sincerely and assured them that I would be sure the wounds were cared for. Throughout the cleaning, I don't remember ever feeling pain, and there was no ointment or medical treatment applied to the wound.
