Rattlesnakes and Fall Weather

Rattlesnakes and  Fall Weather

We have all heard this many times. Yes the snakes will be out sunning themselves during the day; they really want nothing from you except to leave them alone. But when out riding or hiking you may encounter one and of course if you have your buddy “Fido” along, things could get exciting.

Be sure to get control of Fido so he will not get too close to the snake, stay calm and back away. By this time the snake is probably hissing and rattling its tail letting you know he is not happy with this situation.

Remember, keeping Fido away from the snake will keep you out of the vet office and save you money, as it does cost quite a bit of $$$ to treat a dog with anti-venom.
