Statistics from hospitals have shown that the number of dog bite cases in the United States have shown a large increase in the past 16 years.
A recent report from the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality shows nearly 4.5 million people are taken to the hospital each year from a dog attack.
Over the past 16 years, hospital admissions for dog bites have increased from 5,100 in 1993 to 9,500 in 2008. Also in 2008, there were an average of 866 people taken to the hospital each day for dog bites. Studies are being done now to help researchers understand why there has been such an increase.
