This pup was brought in to the ER for injuries resulting from a wildlife encounter while camping. His head was in the wolf's mouth. His mom intervened within seconds. He had a broken nose and some deep puncture wounds. He was lucky the injuries weren't worse.
Each year many pets are brought into the Twin Trees Vet ER for Wildlife encounters can happen in the blink of the eye. Often the injuries from wildlife are serious, even fatal. Worse, some pets are never seen again.
We see pets injured by coyotes, bears, wolves, raccoons, bobcats, lynx, deer, porcupines and raptors. We also see dogs getting hit by cars while chasing squirrels and deer.
Being in a wildlife area is just as dangerous as being next to a busy highway. A leash and close supervision can help to keep your pet safe.
