Oh my goodness I am freaking out!!! My dog got ahold of a freaking rabbit…

Oh my goodness I am freaking out!!! My dog got ahold of a freaking rabbit on post! He had his shots in January. But he has fleas all over him and he has the things blood on him!! I’m freaking out! What do I do? Id’s they’re a vet I can call right now? Should I wait until tomorrow? I have another dog and four kids! What about rabies and the freaking plague that everyone is talking about!? I’ve never had to deal with this kind of thing before!! What do I do?

first: calm down.  panic isn’t productive, especially in a case like this.

second: was your dog treated for fleas prior to this incident?  if not, bath time.

i would call the vet today, yes.  do you still have the carcass, or did your dog eat all of it?  if you still have it, i’d put it in a ziplock bag in case they want you to bring it in with you.  they’ll probably want to worm your dog at the very least.
