Staying Safe When Danger Noodles Appear

Rocklin, CA rattlesnake

We are no strangers to danger noodle encounters at Rocklin Ranch Veterinary Hospital, and we want to make sure you know how to keep your pets safe from their hurt juice. Although we see many different types of sneks in the Rocklin area, danger noodles are the ultimate bad tube dudes. They slither, rattle, and tell you to back off with their teeth first. If you and your pupper or meow meow come face to face with a danger noodle, be sure to do the following:

No Touching

Sneks might have very boopable faces, but you need to remember to avoid touching them at all costs. If you or your doggo try to boop a danger noodle, you will end up with a face full of hurt juice. Since it is often hard to distinguish between regular sneks and danger noodles when you happen upon them in the wild, you should just say no to touching. A simple boop could turn into a very painful situation for you or your furry friend. 

Outdoor Pet Safety 

Danger noodles do not make friends easily and that is because they try to bite anyone that gets too close. In order to avoid a danger noodle bite, you should practice some outdoor pet safety whenever you and your pupper or meow meow leave the house. 

  • Stay on hiking trails to avoid a close encounter of the snek kind
  • Do not move rocks or you might disturb a sleeping danger noodle
  • Keep your doggo on a short leash
  • Don’t let your doggo explore without your supervision
  • If you hear a rattle, book it in the opposite direction
  • Remove debris from outside areas that might attract snek food (like rodents)

You cannot say “move, snek, get out’the way,” and expect a danger noodle to clear your path, which is why it is important for you to pay attention and avoid them when you see them.

Get The Anti Hurt Juice Juice

We have some anti hurt juice juice (a rattlesnake vaccine) that can help protect your doggo from a danger noodle bite. For best protection, your doggo should get the anti hurt juice juice every year. Some doggos who spend more time outside might need it every six months for it to be effective. Talk to your veterinarian at your next wellness visit to find out if your dog can benefit from the danger noodle vaccination.

The team at Rocklin Ranch Veterinary Hospital wants to help you keep your doggos and meow meows safe from danger noodles and other California sneks. To learn more about our services, visit us online or call (916) 624‑PETS (7387).
