Pet Care and Dog Bite Prevention
Have you ever been bitten by a dog or another animal? This hour on Focus, we'll talk about preventing aggressive pet behavior.
Each year in the US, more than 4 million people are bitten by a dog, and one in five of those people require medical attention. This week is National Dog Bite Prevention Week, and this hour on Focus, we’ll talk with Sally Foote, a small animal vet from Tuscola who specializes in dog and cat behavior about aggressive pets and how to prevent children from getting bit on accident. We’ll also talk about ticks and fleas as the heat of summer is almost here. We welcome your questions no matter what breed you love and care for!
