Dog attacks

What to do after a dog-on-dog attack

  • Check both dogs thoroughly for any wounds - remember injuries may not be immediately noticeable after an attack, and you may only be alerted to an injury later once your dog starts to lick the wound(s)
  • Do not continue to exercise your dog as the movement could cause any smaller tears to get worse
  • Seek veterinary treatment as soon as possible if your dog is injured
  • Take down the other person's details, in case this information is needed for insurance or enforcement purposes
