What to do in the event of an animal bite
If you've been bitten, ask the owner of the animal for their contact information and if the animal is current on its rabies vaccination. Clean the bite with soap and water as soon as you're able. Iowa City Animal Services recommends seeking medical attention to ensure there is no infection and filing a bite report to Animal Services or the Iowa City Police Department.
If your animal bites someone, inform both the victim and Animal Services of your pet's rabies vaccination status. Bites must be reported for the health and safety of others. Failure to report a bite could result in a fine.
