Dogs are often wonderful pets and can make terrific companions. However, dogs, even small ones, have the potential to cause injury. Some of these injuries are quite serious, and result in pain, scarring, disfigurement and sometimes, psychological injuries, including anxiety and a fear of dogs.
If you or someone you love has been bitten by a dog, you should get the name of the dog owner and seek medical attention. You should also take pictures of any injuries sustained.
In Ontario, dog owners are responsible for the injuries caused by their animals by virtue of the Dog Owners’ Liability Act, R.S.O. 1990, c D.16.
