Dog Bite Prevention
Last year, 4.7 million people were bitten by dogs. Small children are the most common victims, followed by older people. The AVMA has teamed up the American Academy of Pediatrics and the United States Postal Service to educate the public about the importance of responsible pet ownership and dog bite prevention.
AVMA member, Doctor Kevin Fitzgerald of Animal Planet's E-Vet Interns, offers sensible advice on how you can be certain your dog and your neighbor's dog are among the 61 million 'good' dogs in the United States.
