It’s officially springtime, and that means sunshine and warmer temperatures are causing wildlife, including rattlesnakes, to be more active. Please be aware of your surroundings and watch out for your four-legged friends too.
Dr. Kimberly Boyle, board-certified emergency and critical care specialist, would like to provide you tips on if a rattlesnake bites your pet:
– Take your pet immediately to the nearest veterinary hospital
– On your way, call to let the veterinary hospital know you are coming to ensure that they have antivenin in the event that your pet needs it.
California Veterinary Specialists Carlsbad is a 24-hour emergency service facility.
The city of Carlsbad issued a warning about rattlesnakes in springtime, read it here. http://bit.ly/2oFYkwC
