Default Help!

Just got woke up by the dogs raising hell,went outside and found a skunk in the kennel with Dixie. It squeezed through the chain link and Jacob shot it.I think it had to be rabid or something to get in the pen with her.She seems to be fine other than stinking to high heaven. I can't see any visible wounds on her.She is up to date on her rabies shot.Should I carry her to the vet or not?

Ok same story as the chap dog.
Keep the skunk cool in a cooler (old)
Call animal control they will get it
If ur dog is up to date u should be fine

My vet said that skunk bites are dl small it would not be worth bringing the dog.

Def get the skunk tested

Thanks for the advice men.Would you believe a skunk could go through a chain link fence,saw it with my own two eyes. I guess they are like a mouse if they can get their heads through the rest will follow.

Better make sure you have documentation of the rabies vacs. They will put the screws to you if you don't.
