ABSTRACT

Dog bite is zoonosis disease which varies on age, sex and seasons. The objective of this survey was to document the status of dog bite and use of ethnomedicine and allopathic medicine for its treatment. An open end questionnaire was performed for data collection. The sample size of this survey was 633 families out of 1087 families. The results showed that 120 families suffered from dog bite having 168 patients. Men (58.33%) were more prone to have dog bite than women (41.67%). Incidence of dog bite was mostly observed in age group (0-25) years as compared to (26-50) years and above 50 years. Individual exposed to dog bite usually, once (91.07%) but also twice (6.55%) and more times (2.38%). Ethnomedicine (58.33%) was mostly used rather than allopathic (29.17%) and both medicine (12.5%). Thus, most of individual depend upon ethnomedicinal plants for dog bite treatment. So people should also be aware about allopathic medicine and behaviour of dog.
