In most states if you tell the DR your pet fox bit you they will kill it and test for rabies. There is no choice the DRs by law have to report it. Another fun fact is it will make press. Animal bites are not confidential because they must be reported to the health dept and are considered public knowledge then.

If your fox bites you and it's bad enough to need a DR then tell them your cat did it or you fell on some barbed wire or whatever seems to fit. Do not tell them your fox(or other exotic[****, skunk etc] bit you, ever). It's stupid but if you love your fox it must be, do not tell.

"Well, don't put your fingers in the goat's mouth!!" answered the zoo attendant. (NOTICE that zoo attendant immediately transfered guilt to the small child.)
Sorry but the only way to get bit by as goat is to put your finger in it's mouth. And there is little fear of getting anything from a goat bite. Though we did keep a first aid kit and clean the wound, if one happened, before putting a band aid on.

One time we had a teen freak she might get AIDS from a goat bite, lol. It took a couple of us to convince her you can't get aids from a goat.

Seriously a little nibble by a goat shouldn't need all that you listed. That's extreme paranoia. It's no different than scratching your finger at home or falling and scrapping your hands. Do we really need to follow all those steps for every owey. If so why the heck am I not dead yet?
