What Do Rattlers & Coyotes Have In Common?
Updated: Aug 24
We don't like them, will never like them and neither will our dogs!
Dogs are at risk for rattlesnake bites; in fact, dogs are about 20 times more likely to be bitten by venomous snakes than people and are about 25 times more likely to die if bitten. Snake bites are life-threatening, extremely painful, expensive to treat, and can cause permanent damage even when the dogs survive.
Attacks and bites wounds aren't the only danger coyotes pose to dogs. Coyotes carry and transmit many diseases and parasites, including rabies, distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis, mange, fleas, worms, and ticks.
Clearly, it is not our intent to vilify either species, but rather to suggest that fencing and proper land management is a priority towards keeping our senior residents safe.
