Do you know how to act if your pet is bitten by a rattlesnake?

From KOB 4, "Cat's rattlesnake bite calls attention to outdoor safety."

And a couple of tips from us:

  • You can give your dogs rattlesnake vaccinations. However, there is no consensus as to how well these vaccinations work, and the manufacturers still recommend that you seek treatment at a veterinary hospital as soon as your dog is bitten, even if he or she has been vaccinated.
  • If you THINK your pet has been bitten by a rattlesnake, time is important! Bring him or her to see us right away. There's no real home remedy for that condition.
