Bite Prevention Week: Materials
Did you know that animal bites, a major public health problem in children, is preventable? In response to this concern, the Texas Department of State Health Services has prepared materials to aid animal control and animal shelter employees, veterinarians and their technicians, obstetricians, pediatricians, nurses, and others who want to promote the third full week of May as Bite Prevention Week in their communities. Some of the materials, such as the bookmarks, can be customized with your agency's logo.
"Fight the Bite" bookmark (English) (PDF, 139K)
"Fight the Bite" bookmark (Spanish) (PDF, 373K)
These can be customized with your agency or organization's logo and are designed to have the English translation on one side and the Spanish translation on the other.
