Getting bitten by a dog can be a terrifying experience, but even if you're scared or confused following an attack, there are some things that need to be done to help you and to prevent injuries to others.
To start with, the bite needs to be reported. Anyone who has knowledge of a bite has to report it according to the Orange County Code of Ordinances. Witnesses, owners, and bite victims all have this responsibility. If an owner is present, then information on the dog's health and vaccines, along with information on the owner, needs to be provided to the victim as soon as possible. The time the owner has to provide this information is only 48 hours at maximum.
