Just warn anyone in the area. I was walking through Nelson's Square last Friday about 12:20ninnthe afternoon when a large staffy type dog came bounding up to me and bit me on the arm. It was with its owner, who was very apologetic, but that didn't help when I had blood gushing from my arm. I didn't get a name but he indicated he lived in Rowland Hill House.
There was no warning, snarling or anything...just a bite. If it had have bit a toddler it could have been much worse.
I'd like to thank the staff in the Lord Nelson who were amazing giving me first aid.
Peter did you go to hospital and get a tetanus ? Just found out from old friend that her son was bitten by fifteen year old cocker spaniel...he developed sepsis. He went to patients home and dog didn't like men.
Thank heavens for that tetanus jab Peter , my friends son died he was 51, didn't want to put that if had no jab. Years ago in my garden walking in flip flops, walked into dogs bone that had been broken,cut my toes. Went straight in washed them, poured neat bleach in. Went to GP and had to pressurise him for tetanus jab! He said well you've washed it,bleached it you'll be fine....give me tetanus I said and I will be better!
