May 13, 2015: Emergency management & treatment of rattlesnake envenomations (2 hrs)

Copperhead? Rattlesnake? Oh my!

Need an envenomation expert?

In this VETgirl 2-hour, online veterinary CE webinar sponsored by VenomVet, Dr. Raegan Wells, DVM, DACVECC, reviewed envenomation secondary to Crotalinae snakes (e.g., pit vipers). As both local and systemic venom-induced toxicity can occur, this VETgirl webinar discussed how pit viper venom results in toxicosis in dogs and cats.

This lecture also reviewed the clinical signs and organs affected by rattlesnake envenomation, and reviewed overall treatment (including fluid therapy, antibiotic therapy, plasma transfusions, and antivenin use). Finally, we reviewed the different types of antivenin available on the human and veterinary market at this time.

  3. Hello, I am watching the recorded webinar right now and I wanted to let you know that there is a big lag between the speaker and the slides (slides are ahead of the speaker). It is the first time I see this, keep the good work!

    • Thanks for letting us know – it’s based on your wifi/Internet speed, so it might be best to let it buffer and close out of anything that is internet-heavy (e.g., Dropbox, etc.).

      Let us know if that doesn’t work
