Dog Fight

There are few things that can scare a dog owner more than seeing their dog be attacked by another dog, whether it is a second one they own or someone else's. It creates a feeling of panic and worry when his or her companion is being attacked. However, action may be needed.

You may need to coordinate with another dog owner if possible. But if not, you should try to distract the dog and get both you and your dog to safety, use an object (not your hands) to separate the two, or physically separate them, keeping your parts away from snapping jaws and teeth.

After that, though, what should you do?

We at Mission Veterinary Clinic have a veterinarian in Granada Hills, CA, on our team that help you as an emergency dog vet. Bring us your pet if you have a pet emergency.

Have a Plan

It may sound paranoid, but consider what to do should this happen, especially if you live near other dogs and your dog is prone to getting into fights. You need to spring into action once the two animals are separated.

Be Calm

This one can be tough since you will probably be filled with adrenaline. Try to calm down and make sure that you and your dog stay away from the other dog. Ask for help from someone nearby if you are unsure of what to do yourself or if you are having trouble thinking clearly.

Check Your Dog for Animal Injuries

Once things have calmed down enough and you are away from the other dog, check for animal injuries. If there is blood or puncture wounds, then you need to go see an emergency vet. Even if you don't see anything, it may be a good idea to still take your dog in, since an expert can find things you may have missed, such as injuries that may be hidden under your dog’s fur.
