Your child was playing at a friend’s house when your phone rang. The number on the caller ID immediately caused you concern. You picked up the phone and the friend’s parent told you that your child had been hurt. More specifically, you were told that the family dog had attacked your child.
Insist That Your Child Get Medical Attention
If you are close by then, you may go to your child and get him to the hospital or doctor’s office. However, if you are not close by then ask the adult in charge to get your child immediate medical attention. A doctor needs to examine the wound and make appropriate treatment recommendations.
