An animal bite is considered a puncture or scratch or laceration caused by teeth. Here, in Louisiana, a bite from any wildlife, such as alligators, fish, frogs or other mammals are considered an animal bite. Usually, medical treatment is recommended when an animal bite breaks the skin. Some animal bites can lead to serious infections and disease, including rabies. Snake bites are always best treated in ER.
