When I was bitten by a cat, turned out to be a neighbor on next road, went to 
ER (did not think about what might happen) because blood spurting everywhere, 
they did not have Augmentin - it is too expensive to stock!  I swear, that is 
what the nurse told the doctor so he had me soak my hand in Betadne for an hour 
and then get the Augmentin at the pharmacy next day.  I had let it bleed so it 
would wash out bacteria and applied a pressure bandage.  In case that happens 
again, I had my doctor give me a script for Augmentin to keep on hand - just in 
case.  Since I rescue injured vultures, coons and others, she did not even 
question my reason, just gave it to me, especially after I told about the ER
