What do I do if a wildlife animal bites or scratches me?

Wash the wound thoroughly with soap and water. See your physician immediately for medical treatment. If possible, wildlife that has bitten or scratched you should be tested for rabies. All animal bites to humans should be reported immediately to the Office of Public Health. Please call the Montgomery County Office of Public Health at 610-278-5117 and ask to speak to a Disease Intervention Specialist, who will provide additional information.
