Hi this is Dr Stan here to help you today. You need to be evaluated and put on a course of antibiotics. A dogs mouth and paws can carry a lot of bacteria that can infect humans. You should also be current for tetnus. I hope this is helpful and I am here to answer any additional questions. A positive rating is always appreciated.
