Animal Bite Centers | The Filipino Doctor
 
Did you know that:
  • Almost half of animal bites are caused by pets?
  • Rabies can kill almost 100% of the time?
  • You can protect yourself and your loved ones from rabies through vaccination.
 
If you are bitten or scratched by an animal:

Wound should be washed and flushed immediately with soap and water for 10-15 minutes. This is the most effective first-aid treatment against rabies.

Wounds should be cleaned thoroughly with 70% alcohol/ethanol or povidone-iodine, if available.

As soon as possible, take the person to the nearest healthcare facility or Animal Bite Center for further prophylaxis.
