Spring and Summer are coming, Don’t Tread On Dangerous Ground With Your Pet

TENT DOGEven though your pet enjoys the outdoors, he may tread on dangerous ground.  You decide to take your dog camping with you. He loves being out in the woods or field but poisonous snakes can go with the territory. Dr. Fred Omi, a Veterinarian at Kansas State University says that not all snake bites are alike.  He says that only half of the bites given to dogs or cats by snakes are injections of venim. The rest are called “dry” bites where the snake bites but does not inject the venum into the dog or cat.  Don’t overreact but never ignore your pets snakebite. Don’t attempt to administerpet medication yourself. See your veterinarian right away, he will determine whether the bite needs further treatment.

Remember, your pets count!
