If you read my blog or follow my YouTube Channel, you know I love hiking with my dogs. We live in Arizona and hiking in the Sonoran Desert means we could come across rattlesnakes anytime of the year, although summer encounters are more likely. Knowing basic rattlesnake bite safety could end up saving my pet’s life. In this blog I want to share with you what I learned about what to do immediately after a pet is bitten.
A rattlesnake bite is frightening and can be one of the most dangerous situations you may face with your pet. Not only do you need to know what to do in the moments after a bite, but you also need to act fast to save your pet’s life. Being prepared ahead of time may ensure that you act in a way that helps your pet in this emergency.
The list contains the main things veterinarians suggest you do immediately after the bite occurred and also lists some DON'Ts - things that are widely believed to be useful, but that veterinarians do not recommend.
