The aim of the survey was to study the circumstances of dog bites to children, and their outcomes in terms of medical help sought. Data were obtained from a questionnaire completed with children. A total of 103 bites were documented; 58 were inflicted on boys and 45 on girls. Results were evaluated using chi2 and F tests. Family dogs bit at home (57.6%), dogs belonging to friends bit outside (62.2%), and unknown dogs bit only outside (100.0%), (chi2=24.796, df=2, p<0.001). Bites by small dogs were more frequent at home (51.5%), those by medium size (73.1%) and large dogs (80.5%) outside (chi2=9.022, df=2, p<0.011). Of 101 responses, 32 bites happened at home; in 2 cases (6.3%) medical assistance was sought; 69 incidents happened outside, 21 of them (30.4%) were treated. Assistance was sought when the bite occurred outside (91.3%) rather than at home (8.7%), (chi2 =7.271, df=1, p<0.009). The age of children bitten and medically treated was 2-11 years, mean age 5.6 years (F = 11.155, df=1, p<0.001). Of 102 responses, broken skin and bleeding was in 58 cases, of which 23 were treated (39.7%). Medical help was related to the type of injury (chi2 =22.528, df=2, p<0.001). Of the bites 57 were inflicted on boys, 7 were given medical help (12.3%); among 45 girls bitten help was given to 16(35.6%) of them. Girls were treated more often (69.6%) than boys (30.4%), (chi2 =7.8, df=1, p<0.008). Children were more often treated when an adult was present at the time of incident (56.5 %). In 66.7% cases no medical help was given despite the presence of an adult at the moment of the incident (chi2 = 4.029, df=1, p<0.054). Most bites in the head area were by small dogs (boys 80.0%, girls 50.0%); (boys, chi2=4.302, df=2, p<0.122; girls chi2 =6.2, df = 2, p<0.038). Dog bites to children seem underestimated in terms of medical care given. Bites at home were rarely treated, bites with broken skin in less than a half of the incidents, and bites inflicted on boys were treated less frequently than those inflicted on girls.
