Rattlesnakes are prevalent in our area and were out in abundance last year. Because they are camouflage hunters people and pets who are bitten may never see the snake until it’s too late. Most dogs smell a rattlesnake well before they see or hear it. Rattlesnake Avoidance Training helps your dog identify the danger and know to AVOID it. Rattlesnake bites can be deadly if quick treatment is not obtained. This treatment includes antivenin and is extremely costly. The bruising and subsequent skin sloughing that can occur after a rattlesnake bite is very painful and requires additional veterinary treatment.
At Yorba Regional Animal Hospital we want to help you protect your dogs before they encounter a rattler. We now offer Rattlesnake Aversion Classes periodically from spring through summer and sometimes into fall. Classes are offered with trainer Richard (Andy) Andrews. Andy has over 15-years of Rattlesnake Aversion Training experience and has trained thousands of both hunting dogs and family pets. The cost of our classes is $65 per dog and are limited to 25 dogs per day. We will be starting classes again soon. Our next class will be held on Saturday April 27th with another class to follow on Sunday June 2nd. If you would like more information on our classes or to get on the schedule please contact Carol Petyo at (714) 921-8700

Is your best friend a large dog? If so he or she may be prone to getting a Gastric Torsion, commonly known as bloat. A gastric torsion occurs when a dog’s stomach becomes twisted inside the abdomen, blocking the flow of food and blood to the stomach. Dogs with an untreated torsion will usually die within a few hours. Deep chested dogs are most prone to Gastric Torsions some of these breeds include Rottweilers, Great Danes, German Shepherds, Weimaraners, Standard Poodles and Labrador Retreivers. You can usually prevent gastric torsion in your dog with a minimally invasive laparoscopic surgical procedure called Gastropexy. This procedure allows a veterinarian to tack the outer lining of the stomach to the abdominal wall. When healed this strong bond helps prevents the stomach from twisting.
At Yorba Regional Animal Hospital we have the ability to perform this surgery using state-of-the-art laparoscopic techniques for your dog that reduce the incision site to approximately 2 inches.
A Laparoscopic Gastropexy can cost upwards of $1,500. We are offering to perform this life saving procedure on your dog for $750. Please mention your interest in gastropexy to the receptionist when making an examination appointment. Your pet’s veterinarian will go over all details of the surgery and answer any questions you may have.
A Laparoscopic Gastropexy at Yorba Regional Animal Hospital includes the following:
This very important annual test includes analysis for heartworms, roundworms, whipworms, hookworms, giardia, and coccidia. We highly recommend a complete parasite program for the health and safety of you and your pets. This test includes a stool exam and blood test. Special applies to dogs only.
