Re: Badger bite


Don't wprry about the TB thing---she will probably be prescribed antibiotics to stop possible infection and be fine,

Lots of terriers get bitten by badgers!

Re: Badger bite


Are you she was bitten by a Badger? They dont bite, they hold, rip and tear. Im surprised (and very pleased) if she isnt badly hurt.

Re: Badger bite


It will be treated like any other bite, but I have to say she was very lucky, were they young badgers As I used to own a JRT that carried a huge scar during her latter years from one ear straight across her her down to her neck, where a badger swiped her across the face with its claws.
Your dog has been lucky to get away with just a bite, if there are badgers there I'd be careful next time she may not be so lucky.

Re: Badger bite


Just reading this again, I cant see how for the life of me somebody can pull a dog off a Badger so easily, are you sure it was a Badger?
