Vets talk about snake bite survival
ON Friday, Jamieson community group hosted a Snake Bite Survival presentation in the Memorial Hall.
The snake bite survival guide was presented by Dr Jess Metcalfe from Delatite Veterinary Clinic and local Jamieson resident and wine maker Dr John Eason – 35 residents attended the meeting and were surprised by some of the information they received.
Dr Metcalfe gave advice on the treatment and care of snake bite, with animals and your pets.
Dr Eason spoke on the value of immediate care and treatment of snake bite on humans.
Awareness of the necessity of prompt treatment of the victim is vital – seek medical help immediately.
Phone 000, wrap the wound in compression bandage, or fabric and immobilise the area.
Do not clean the wound as the residue venom will be used to identify the snake type.
The information was well received by all attendees.
