Dressing change freq: Change the dressing once daily, at least. Check in with our physician regularly to assess wound healing and possible signs of infection.

Dog bite wound care: You should be changing your band-aids and washing your wounds at least twice a day. As drainage subsides, you can go to daily changes. And if there are any signs of infection, you must see your doctor.
