Bites and tetanus

Post by I❤dogs on Wed Jul 05 2017, 13:27

Yesterday Rebel got carried away & bit my face. His tooth ore my lip. I'm not bothered, he's just a baby. Because it's surprisingly deep my Mum keeps saying I need to go for a tetanus jab. Is that right, I haven't had one in a long time. I don't want to go to nurse as she might not understand pups do that sometimes

Just explain to the nurse hen she will understand and be able to help if you arent comfortable may be a wait ask your gp instead . Smile Smile i myself have never been comfortable with nurses and injections for some reason i prefer a doctor though me myself have never needed a tetanus
