DOGS AND SNAKES
If your dog is on a lead and sees a snake casually divert its attention from it by pointing somewhere else
If your dog is off its lead and sees a snake: stay calm, recall your dog and direct its attention away from the snake
If your dog is bitten keep it calm and carry it. Get it to a vet ASAP
Dogs may vomit, shake, twitch and show sudden weakness following a snake bite. They can also collapse, have blood in their urine and be temporarily paralysed.
