The study was carried out in three randomly selected Primary Health Centres (PHCs) of district Pune. During three months of study period all the patients with animal bite attending PHCs were enrolled for the study. All the animal bite cases (451) were due to dog bite and 61.4% were reported to be bitten by pet dogs. In spite of having the knowledge about seriousness of illness, immediate care like washing of wound with soap and water was practiced by only 23.5%. Majority of them did not report immediately to PHC for treatment after dog bite.
