Snakebites are on the rise

For the month of August (2013) we admitted 8 animals with snakebites. Most of these have been Eastern Browns, although we have also had a Whip snake and unfortunately, 1 Taipan fatality. 


If your pet has killed the snake, make sure you bring the snake and your pet as quickly as possible to be treated. You do have approximately 3 or 4 hours, generally, before your pet will show weakness and paralysis. The treatment is 90% successful.
