Maybe: Animals particular cats can cause bad infections when bit. Dogs less likely but after the wounds are cleaned I recommend updating tetanus if > 10 years and just making sure the wounds do not need antibiotics. Please get checked.

Probably BUT: Most dog bites do well with simple measures like you describe, a thorough washing and dressing, BUT the area involved and the severity of the bite sometimes requires further care. Also you should be sure you have had a tetanus immunization in the last 10 years and We always make sure the dog has been vaccinated for rabies (since its yours, you should know).
