Camping with Your Dog? Watch Out For Snake Bites!

Wednesday, September 8, 2021
posted by Jim Murphy

Even though your pet enjoys the outdoors, he may tread on dangerous ground. You decide to take your dog camping with you and he loves being out in the woods or field but poisonous snakes can go with the territory. Dr. Fred Omi, a Veternarian 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 venum. 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 administer pet medication yourself. See your veternarian right away, he will determine whether the bite needs further treatment.

Remember, pets are family.
