This week from May 15th to the 21st is National Dog Bite Prevention Week. And, now that the warmer weather is here, many dogs are out and about in our neighborhoods and communities. Here in Lee’s Summit, we have two dog parks as well.
Pet ownership in the United States continues to grow. According to the 2021-2022 APPA Pet Ownership Survey, 70% of U.S. households have a pet and 54% of those come home to the wagging tail of a dog. Unfortunately, that means the chance for a dog bite occurring has also increased— with more than 800,000 requiring medical attention and with children being the most likely victims.
