Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Animal Exposures

Animal exposures include

  • bites
  • scratches
  • allergies

You should notify a health-care provider immediately if you develop any symptoms associated with contact with animals.  Student Life Student Health Services (SLSHS) is available to evaluate any acute problems during our normal business hours.  After hours care may be sought at a hospital emergency department or at an urgent care center.  Please be sure to share with your provider as much information as possible about the source of your injury and/or exposure, and the species of animal/any known pathogens involved.
