    The pills are antibiotic pills because the doctor was very concerned about the bacteria in the dogs mouth especially what is on the dogs teeth..
    He wasn't concerned about rabies, but infection..
    3 pills a day taken with food for 7 days is what I was given..

    What an awful thing to have happen, @Steve North , and I am also glad to hear that you are recovering. We all use our hands all of the time, so having it bandaged up and unusable would be no fun even if you weren't in pain from the bite.
    I am pretty sure that reporting dog bites is required here, too; but at least of it was the first time, they don't have to put the dog down. I am guessing that the owners will not be s quick to take him along to strange places and then tell people he doesn't bite from now on. That was a very poor decision on their part.
    And congratulations on winning again ! !

    Absolutely agree on the yogurt idea, @Patsy Faye ! Gotta keep those probiotics active, and the antibiotics are killing those off along with the bad guys.

    I have NO idea if this is the first time the dog bit or not..
    It has been reported and unfortunately it is out of my hands..

    I later found out the dog is part Rottweiler and part unknown..

    Yogurt is a must when on antibiotics..

    Does that mean that you were unable to credit it to your account? I will look and see if there is a way to re-send it. I haven't had that happen before so I don't know.

    I am so sorry to hear about your hand.

    Oh Steve, not a very pleasant experience to say the least. I've been bitten ( which took a big chunk out of my thigh) by a rottweiller, so I know exactly how you must be feeling re the pain.

    The bruising lasted for weeks afterwards after the bite healed..:(

    I hope your second windfall from SOc...goes some way to easing the pain.. :)

    Geezzze Steve!! I been out of town a few days so just saw your post on game chat ...nice doggie, Eh? so sorry for your pain too, dog bites really do hurt especially when they clamp on to the hand bones too.. hope the pain meds will give you some relief soon... maybe you can use your winnings to buy some thick leather gloves to wear next time you visit your neighbor.. I hope you sent him the hospital bill too..but at least the winning of the big drawing should raise your spirits some.. Congratulations dear friend,,

    Sorry to hear about the dog bite Steve hope it heals completely soon.....I was bitten by our family dog as a child and it was immediately put down, it's hard to trust a dog once it has bitten in my opinion..

    Babs.... Perhaps, it is a possibility.. I think we should ask our Donald if it is true or not and what he thinks..

    You don't get it from me. It comes from Amazon.ca and they have sent it twice - to the same address it was sent to the first time. I don't know how many times I can have them resend it, but you might check your spam filter to see if the Amazon stuff has been filtered out as spam.

    @Steve North
    Just saw this today. Very glad for you winning the award, sad to hear of the dog-bite. Sounds really nasty. A get-healed order is in order! :)

    @Steve North - when Emails are deleted they go into trash
    Have you checked there. If it is there, just click on for Amazon

    Amazon's computer is probably "confused" because they already sent you that gift card and don't know how to process how you won that gift card two times in a row! :)

    @Steve North, I do not see an option to have them resend it a third time, so I have bought another one. If you don't receive that, I give up.
