Safety tips for you and your pet if you should encounter a rattlesnake while you are out and about-

      1. Walk your dog on a 6ft leash.

      2.  Avoid rocky or dense brush areas.

      3.  Know dog rattlesnake bite symptoms

  • puncture wounds
  • severe pain
  • elevated temperature
  • restlessness, panting, or drooling.

       5. If you encounter a rattlesnake calmly and slowly back  

           away from the snake until you are out of striking
