Q:

What is the treatment for a dog bite?

A:

If a doctor is assessing your dog bite, they will likely clean out the bite wound and apply some type of dressing to protect any open skin from infection. In serious bites, the tissues around and under your bite will be checked for any major injury. You might be advised to receive a tetanus shot if it has been more than 10 years since your last one.

Q:

Heart Failure and Preventing Fluid Retention

A:

In relation to heart functioning, fluid restriction is important, because if you have too much water, it can cause fluid retention. Fluid retention can make it more difficult for you to breathe, and it makes it more difficult for your heart to pump efficiently.

Q:

What to Expect After Laser Treatment for Diabetic Retinopathy

A:

After having laser in the eye, what you can expect is a short period, about 10 to 15 minutes, of discolouration of your vision, which starts out as a purple colour and then slowly fades into a red or pink colour, and eventually becomes normal vision in about 15 minutes.
