Careful, muskrats go for the jugular

When a muskrat dared to tread on his turf, Nathan the miniature dachshund decided to take action. Unfortunately, the muskrat won and Nathan’s puncture wounds required emergency surgery to prevent further bleeding.


Pet tip: Watch pets when outdoors. Also, stock a first-aid kit for your pet and take a class to learn lifesaving skills such as how to stop the bleeding from an injury.
