Snake Bites

Pets and Snake BitesFlorida is chock full of poisonous species of snakes, including the Eastern Diamond Back, the Pygmy Rattler, the Water Moccasin, and the Coral Snake. Their bites are all very toxic to animals and humans alike. They all can be found in Pinellas, Pasco, and Hillsborough counties, even in heavily populated areas. Dogs often get bitten when exploring in woods or poking their nose into bushes.

Typical signs of bite are:

  • Yelping, crying, and other expressions of pain
  • Prominent swelling of the site, along with moderate bleeding
  • Neurological signs such as disorientation.

Speedy treatment is crucial to survival. The sooner your pet receives antivenom and other crtiical care, the better the outcome.
