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.
