Bite wounds are common in the emergency departments in Denmark. As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, more people are adopting pets and the number of hours spent at home with pets are increasing. This will probably result in more bite wounds and therefore, it is as important as ever for emergency doctors to be able to treat bite wounds appropriately. In this review, we summarise the most common types of bite wounds, how to make a thorough physical examination, what to focus on in the anamnesis, and how to treat bite wounds including when to suture and the indications for prophylactic antibiotics.
