Do You Know What To Do in A Rattlesnake Bite Emergency?

The first thing you should do to save your dog's life and limb in a snake bit situation is to remain calm. If you keep a clear head your pet will be much safer all around. 

Next, try to identify the snake without getting to close yourself. If your dog has the tell-tale double puncture marks and bleeding with no snake in sight, it is alright we can treat without snake identification. But if you can identify the culprit it would be best. 

Call our office and head on in for treatment. Depending on the dog breed, size of the dog, the amount of venom injected and other factors your dog may simply need monitoring, or he may need more complex treatments. 

If your dog already has a rattlesnake vaccination the chances are that he will survive the attack. This vaccination is available to pets in high-risk areas, discuss your options at your pet's next appointment. 

Keep in mind some dog breeds handle snake bite better than others. Your dog may be just fine, it is very important that you remain calm while you drive your dog to our office for treatment. 

Fast Action is Vital to Save Your Dog's Life.

The best action is preventative. No matter how fast you are after the fact, you cannot go back in time to get a snake bite vaccination for your pet. So come in soon to find out if your dog can have a rattlesnake vaccination. Whether they have the shot or not remain calm but act immediately to get your dog to professional care as soon as is possible without putting yourself in danger. Seconds count when it comes to snake bites, so be fast and calm.

  • "I've been there twice and the people are a delight to work with. They genuinely care for your baby. Customer service they provide toward your pet is OUTSTANDING. My baby was scared but they put him at ease. Ohh and his humans too. They have home what seems to be the right medicine because he is already eating and down for a good nap. All I can say is THANK YOU
    I wish you were a full service vet I would use you all the time"

  • "This is my first review so bear with me.....Under a very hard emergency circumstance, I used this establishment yesterday for my cat. I can not express how thankful I am that I found them. It was a Sunday so my vet was closed. I was a total stranger and was treated like a lifelong customer. Whatever it is you are doing, please keep up the good work. Thank you."

  • "This place is awesome! I went in because my dog was choking on his collar! Yes, his collar! When I got there they were so urgent and alert to what seemed to be an emergency situation. (At least to me). Especially the young man at the front desk who moved really fast for someone who had a boot on his foot! Also, They were so comforting due to the fact I was crying hysterically. I would recommend this place to anyone! My puppy is back home like nothing ever happened lol. Definitely five star service."
