Local Medical Issues

Rattlesnakes can commonly be found in Northern California, and rattlesnake bites pose a hazard for both people and pets. They are typically active from about March through September, and can be found almost anywhere, but especially near rivers and less-developed areas with wildlife.

When a dog or cat is bitten by a rattlesnake, it is usually around the face (dogs) and extremities (both dogs and cats). It is impossible to know how much venom has actually been injected through a snake's fangs into the bite wounds, so it is extremely important to seek veterinary attention right away. The rattlesnakes in California tend to have hemotoxic venom, which means that the venom disrupts the integrity of blood vessels. Shock, hemorrhage and severe bruising are common with envenomation.

Best Vet in the Area
Lorena Long from Cottonwood

I have been taking my dog, Mandy, to this clinic for the past 2 1/2 years. I cannot say enough about this place, the staff are the best, very compassionate and understanding. I have boarded my dog here on numerous occasions and she is always happy to see them. Trots off with the staff without a look back (very sad for me). Sadly, I am moving and must find a new vet. I only hope they will be half as good as VCA! Thank you for all your patience and care during these past 2 1/2 years. Keep up the good work, your love for your patients shows through every time!!
