Doctors can you tell me how often should I change a bandage on a dog bite?

In brief: 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.
