In brief: Beware "cheap"

If the wound is minor, clean the wound immediately with warm soapy water and peroxide.
Apply a clean bandage and head to the er. If you have serious bleeding or a severe injury head straight to the er. Severe infections and other problems are not uncommon and are best evaluated asap. You will need antibiotics. Have someone call animal control to evaluate the animal which caused the injury.

In brief: Washing and ointment

You should get them as clean as you can, then put antibiotic ointment on them. The big problem with dog bites is infection, and this will help.
It isn't perfect, though, so if the bites get red, hot, or drain pus, see a doctor immediately!
