Take Home Points

  • There is no strict golden hour for wound closure. Location, contamination and patient factors all should be taken into account
  • Dog bites can be closed primarily. Bites on the hand and foot are higher risk for infection. If you close, strongly consider adding antibiotic prophylaxis
  • Sterile water is unnecessary for wound decontamination as are additives (ie betadine). Tap water under reasonable pressure (45 psi) is adequate.
