Is there anything I can get from the grocery store or drug store for my dog bites until I can see a doctor?

In brief: Peroxide and bandage

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.
