Pet Tip of the Week: Dogs Gone Wild (CNBnews.net)

So you say that Fido was out in the yard and suddenly, you hear a ruckus. Someone is screaming and a couple of dogs seem to be duking it out, close by. You realize that one of the dogs you hear is Fido.

Uh-oh!

Here’s what to do if your dog is involved in an attack and seems to be the instigator: Banner

  • Grab a leash and head for the fight
  • Pull your dog off the other dog and immediately leash him and take him home
  • Return to the scene of the fight and exchange identification—name, address, phone number, email
  • Offer to drive the other dog and/or the human to the veterinarian or hospital
  • Let the dog owner know you are willing to pay for any bills incurred by your dog as long as they show you the receipts for care
  • If you are unable to pay the injured parties a lump sum arrange a payment plan
  • If you have homeowner’s insurance contact the company and see if your pet is covered for injuries incurred

It’s not easy to admit your dog is at fault but sometimes, being a responsible pet owner means having to say you’re sorry!
