    Niece was bitten by family's pet dog (Warning: Graphic Pictues)

    My nephew and his wife got a dog a couple of weeks ago, a pit bull. He seem to get along pretty good with their 11 month old daughter....until last night. The dog began to growl at little Abby and lunged at her, taking a big bite out of her left cheek. The dog tried again to lunge when my nephew drugged the dog off her and took him outside.

    My little niece had to be rushed to Children's Hospital in St. Louis. Surgery had to be done by a plastic surgeon. What is disturbing is that the hospital called the Washington County Sheriff's department to go get the dog to have it tested for rabies. The sheriff's department refused saying they didn't have time. So Abby has to have rabies shots now.

    She's doing fine and is on her way home now as I typed this.

    Wow, that's rough. Hoping for the best for everyone involved.

    Not to pick on your nephew, but why had they had a dog for weeks and not done a basic vet check up?

    That is a terrible story. In the sherif's defense, you can't test for rabies without killing the animal, and sending the head to a lab. It's going to be allot faster for the owner just to kill the dog and send the head to the state.

    Nephew shot the dog, and the hospital should know the process - they have done this sort of thing before. This is a major hospital, one of the best children's hospitals in the world, so I'm sure they know their stuff. I thought they would have called animal control, so I don't know.

    If the dog was shot in the head, then it cannot be tested for rabies. Need an intact brain, for that. Best option is to place the dog in quarantine, for 10 days, at a clinic, or shelter. After the 10 days is up, dog can be destroyed, but if the dog is not exhibiting signs or symptoms of rabies, at the end of the 10 days, the bite victim does not have to undergo the shots.

    Very, very sad and tragic. I am glad that your niece is on her way home, after such a horrible ordeal.
    If man had enough horse sense to treat his wife like a Thoroughbred, she'd never grow into an old nag.

    Prayers sent. That is an awful situation.

    Almost didn't respond as I had three fights years back with two different pit bulls. They both died ugly deaths.
