SUNDAY, Feb. 9, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- Cat bites may look less serious than dog bites, but beware: They can cause dangerous infections, particularly when they involve the hand, new research indicates.
cats have no more germs in their mouths than dogs or people,

teeth can inject hard-to-treat bacteria deeply into the skin and joints,
increasing the risk for serious infection.
"Dogs' teeth are
blunter, so they don't tend to penetrate as deeply and they tend to
leave a larger wound after they bite," study senior author Dr. Brian
Carlsen, a Mayo Clinic plastic surgeon and orthopedic hand surgeon, said

deeply. They can seed bacteria in the joint and tendon sheaths."READ MORE
