The rattlesnake snatched him and bit the dog five times.

“As I approached him, I noticed a snake cartwheeling in the air.

So I put him between me and the snake, and when I attempted to catch him, huge mistake, there were many snakes,” his owner, Fritz Brownell, told KTVB.

Toad’s owners hurried him to the vet, but the poison had already taken effect, causing him to hemorrhage from his lips and gums.

The vets checked him swiftly and discovered that he had been bitten on both sides of his face, and many times on his front left leg.

He swelled up instantly, but veterinarians gave him anti-venom.

His owners were worried he wouldn’t make it, but he did.

As Toad recovers, his owners are encouraging other pet owners to be cautious in areas where rattlesnakes may be present.
