The woman in her 60s has been taken to hospital, and all dogs have been seized by the council, Chief Inspector Gary Ford said.
Witness Michael McCammon said he "heard a lot of screaming, it was a really long scream too".
"One lady came in looking for ice and a plastic bag which made me think maybe she lost a finger or something, because there was a fair bit of blood," he said.
"Another guy came in looking for ice, a firey came in looking for ice, and everything was going a bit wild."

Mr McCammon added the woman looked "pretty confused when she stopped screaming".
