How Do I Hold the Dog Owner Liable for a Bite in CA?
In order to hold the liable party responsible for the dog bite, it must be proven that the attack took place either while in a public area or in private area that was not made safe for visitors.

Should I Go to the Doctor for a Dog Bite Wound?
It is always best to consult with your medical professional before making any further decisions after an injury. If you or a loved one have been bitten by a dog and the wound is drawing blood, you may want to see a doctor to ensure that bacteria is not entering your blood stream and causing potential infection. If your dog bite has not drawn blood, a simple cleaning may be enough, but only a doctor can make this call.
In many situations, the dog's home life has taught him or her to be aggressive around humans. When a dog is not treated in a proper manner, this animal is more likely to attack. If this behavior is recognized in the animal, you can obtain substantial compensation for your injuries.
