Snakes On The Move

Snakes On The Move

With the recent warm weather, snakes are coming out to play. Australia has the most venomous snakes in the world, and all snake-bites in Australia should be considered potentially life-threatening until proven otherwise.

Snake bites can often be relatively painless and not leave any obvious bite marks, especially on our furry friends where it is often hard to see the skin clearly.

If you are a pet owner, please remember to be cautious in letting your pet wander off into bush land. It is safest to keep your pet on a short leash and avoid walking through heavily vegetated areas. Keep your yard clean and free from rats and mice which can attract snakes.

If your pet has is found playing with a snake or has been bitten, please contact the Animal Poisons Centre or your nearest veterinarian urgently.
