413. Bitten by a tranquilised dog

I took my assistant Mr Min to a Toa Payoh General Practitioner on Thursday Apr 22, 2011. He was bitten twice by a sedated dog while helping Dr Jason Teo to remove maggots from it yesterday evening.

He showed me his two palms with dog bite wounds. One was bandaged. In my car, he recounted that he was once bitten in his finger by a turtle while working for a vet in Malaysia. "This turtle is not seen in Myanmar," he said. "Its mouth was very low and when I held it, it bit my finger."

"Next time, put a towel over the dog's head instead of trying to muzzle him," I advised as he got bitten while trying to muzzle the sedated dog.
