My dog / myself got bit by another dog, do I need to do anything?

Yes. If you can, get the following information:

  • Address
  • Dog's name
  • Dog's vaccine status
  • Owner's name
  • Phone number
  • Veterinarian they use

Then call the Biddeford Police Deapartment as soon as you can. We need to know that a bite happened, so it can be recorded and we can make sure the dog is healthy. 


This does not mean that we are going to take the dog; that happens very rarely.
