Stay alert – rattlesnake season is here

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013 | Posted by | no responses

Chelsea Judith captured this photo of a rattlesnake she spotted on Cloverdale’s River Road.

 

With the warm weather comes rattlesnake season, and people are not the only ones who need to watch out for them.

According to the Animal Hospital of Cloverdale, last year was one of the worst in their history for seeing rattlesnake bites. They suggest protecting your dog with a Rattlesnake Vaccine so the adverse reaction from any bite will be less severe, possibly saving your dog’s life.

Vaccinated or not, if your dog is bitten by a rattlesnake, bring it to a veterinarian immediately.

The Animal Hospital of Cloverdale can be reached at 894-3951 for more information.
