Animal bites, mostly dog bites, often require an emergency department visit, but are often mistakenly considered innocuous. Indeed, bite wounds can lead to an handicap as well as become infected, mostly with the oral flora of the biting animal (Pasteurella, Capnocytophaga, Eikennella, streptococci, staphylococci and anaerobic bacteria).

Background: Dog bites are the most common animal bite injuries occurring in the United States. Estimated infection rates range between 15% and 20%. Polymicrobial infections are most common. Capnocytophaga canimorsus (C. canimorsus) is a Gram-negative rod strongly associated with dog bites, and is known to cause life-threatening infection in humans.
