Dog bite wound to a child's finger. This L-shaped laceration must be treated for infection, and the possibility of tetanus and rabies considered. This type of wound is usually left open and dressed with an antiseptic, rather than stitched (which may encourage bacterial infection). Antibiotic treatment may be necessary.
