Snake Bites to Dogs

Thursday, June 30, 2022
posted by Jim Murphy

Summer is here and out come the critters Even 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 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 venom. The rest are called “dry” bites where the snake bites but does not inject the venom into the dog or cat. Don’t overreact but never ignore your pets snakebite. Don’t attempt to administer pet medication yourself. See your veterinarian right away, he will determine whether the bite needs further treatment.

Remember, pets are family
