  • In a lifetime, at least 50% of the population will sustain a dog bite. (
  • The infection rate after dog bite injury is less than 10%, (3,4) and when infection occurs it is normally localized to the tissues surrounding the wound, making it readily treatable with topical antibiotics. (

  • In 1983 the court ruled that a dog sniffing for drugs in your luggage at the airport was not a search. (
  • But the real problem is that while the court says the use of drug-sniffing dogs does not constitute a search and therefore does not require that the police have probable cause to initiate it, they've also ruled that if the dog "alerts" to the presence of drugs, that alert does constitute probable cause and thus give the police the right to perform a full search of your car. (

  • Treatment is available for dogs with leishmaniosis, but infection is difficult to clear and long-term medication is therefore frequently needed. (
  • The acute and catastrophic course of our patient's infection raises concern for the recommendation of appropriate prophylactic antibiotics after even minor dog bites or scratches, even when infection is not usually evident. (

  • He said such move was in response to the noted increase in the reported cases of dog bites within the city's 26 barangays that averaged nearly 400 a month since January. (
  • The theory of liability was based on the city's knowledge, from prior complaints, that these dogs were loose from time to time and dangerous. (
  • The plaintiff suggested that the city's failure to impound the dogs after prior numerous complaints contributed to the attack. (
  • The court concluded that decisions made by the city's animal control officer and police to not impound the dogs were discretionary decisions, and therefore the city was immune. (
