Pet owners have a responsibility to keep their pets from biting.
Did you know that cat bites may appear trivial, however, up to 80 percent of cat bites may become infected if proper care is not taken.
According to the American Humane Association, an estimated 4.7 million dog bites occur in the U.S. each year and of those, nearly 800,000 require medical care.
