In a fight my dog got a bite on his head and his head swelled. The swelling has reached his eyes, but subsided a little now. Please advice for a treatment.


Dog bite wounds must require immediate medical attention. The wound must be cleaned immediately with soap water or recommended antimicrobial solution. The bite wound must be assessed by your vet for depth of injury, infection and reviewing anti-rabies vaccination status. Please take him to your vet before the infection spreads to the eyes.
