In September 2018, 12 cases of dog bites were reported in Karachi. Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences received over 4,700 dog bite cases last year.

Animal bite infections are serious and can even be life-threatening if left untreated. It is important to observe the dog’s behaviour as well. If a dog is running around biting several people, then chances are that it is rabid.

According to World Health Organization (WHO), the wound should be washed immediately for at least 15 minutes and the victim needs to get the rabies vaccination to kill the virus.
