Animal bites, mostly dog bites, often require an emergency department visit, but are often mistakenly considered innocuous. Indeed, bite wounds can lead to an handicap as well as become infected, mostly with the oral flora of the biting animal (Pasteurella, Capnocytophaga, Eikennella, streptococci, staphylococci and anaerobic bacteria).
