Vets Saved Our Dog After Rattlesnake Bite
Kevin and Marley Wong from Joshua Tree

Our young dachshund, Dexter, was recently bitten by a Mojave green rattlesnake late one Monday evening at our home in Joshua Tree. We were referred to the VCA Valley Animal Medical Center & Emergency Hospital in Indio as the only 24-hour emergency hospital and we raced the near lifeless dog to Indio, during which time my wife was applying "mouth to snout" resuscitation.

The Mojave green is especially venomous with both a neurotoxin and hemotoxin. Despite the critical condition of the dog upon admittance, the staff began providing a level of care that kept us believing that Dexter could recover. This care continued for days as Dexter began to show small and steady signs of improvement.

The VCA staff cared for this dog for seven days, during which time Dexter fully recovered despite the overwhelming odds of the survival. Doctors Ann Eliopulos, Marlena Folden and Peter Eddy are to be commended for their skills, training and professionalism. The Coachella Valley is very fortunate to have this facility and these doctors available for our animals 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They saved the life of our dog and we will always be thankful.
