Snake-bite warning

VETERINARIANS are expecting lots of snake bite cases across New South Wales this summer due to an extremely wet spring.

“We’re warning pet owners to be vigilant as the wet spring means a good breeding season for snakes, with lots of food around,” NSW Division of the Australian Veterinary Association president Dr Geoff Tomkins said.

“Vets have already had lots of cases of snake bite throughout NSW and we expect more in the coming weeks due to snakes being flushed out by the torrential rain.”

Dog owners should avoid walking pets in snake-prone areas, he said.
