Spokane Dog Bite Statistics
Each year over 4.5 million people are injured in dog bite incidents in the United States. A good number of these incidents occur within the borders of Washington State. While dogs are domesticated animals, they remain just that: animals. Bites remain a risk for pet owners and anyone in the immediate proximity of a dog.
Below are statistics relevant to Spokane and Washington State dog owners:
- 1 in 5 Dog Bite Injuries Becomes Infected
- 80-90% of Bites are From Dogs Known to the Victim

The best way to avoid being bitten by a dog is to remain vigilant around both unknown and familiar animals. Do not antagonize a dog for any reason. Recognize when a dog is perturbed by the position of its ears, whether it is growling or not, and if its hair is standing up. Remember that even if you know a dog well, the risk of a bite remains.
