Dr. Jenkins sits down with Dr. Michael Schaer to discuss everything about snakebite in dogs. They talk about what you should do if your dog is bitten and what the treatment will be once the dog arrives at the vet. They also go in depth on the vaccine for dogs and whether it is useful and why or why not. Chris and Michael explore all kinds of additional topics from misconceptions people have about snakebite in dogs to comparing how dogs, cats, and horses respond differently and require different treatment. If you own a dog in snake country you are not going to want to miss this one.
