Snake Safety

Snakes can be some of the most dangerous critters out in the wild, and even in our backyards, so it’s important to be aware of your pet’s exploration. Snakes tend to spend more time in areas with overgrown underbrush or under decks, but cou
ld venture out into the middle of the yard as well. It’s important to remember that if your pet is bitten by a snake, immediate treatment is necessary. It can really help treatment if you can identify, describe, or provide a picture of the snake that bit your pet when you visit the vet, so that the appropriate treatment can be given. We are proud to have James, a Reptile Expert on our team! If your pet has a run in with a snake, be sure to call us immediately and ask for James.
