INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE MAMMAL BITES WHILE PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What is a mammal bite?

A mammal bite means any injury caused by the teeth of any type of mammal, including canines (dogs), felines (cats), rodents (rats, etc), and primates (humans, apes, monkeys). A bite injury is classified based on the type of wound/s, such as lacerations, punctures, abrasions, avulsions, and contusions, and also based on the severity, which generally depends on the jaw strength and anatomy of the attacking animal, the location of the injury, and the fierceness of the attack. In contrast with bites from venomous animals, which tend not to be mammals, the issues with mammal bites are mainly of the physical effect of the bite and the possibility of infection from microorganisms in the biting animal’s mouth.
