Why we do what we do: Antibiotics for dog bites

For a long time when encountering a patient who had suffered a dog bite I reflexively placed the patient on antibiotics. Generally, either amoxicillin/clavulanate or clindamycin. Along the way I began to question whether or not there is evidence to support this practice, since I also haven’t seen many infected dog bites. As you may already be aware, most dog bites are from an animal known to the victim. One study from Australia noted that >4/5 were known. In children under 5 the bites are more likely to be in the head/neck (60-70%). See Patronek at al. for more. In older children and adults the extremities – more commonly the dominant hand – are involved.
