Mansfield Courier - - COURIER OPINIONS/PEOPLE -

AF­TER the great suc­cess of the free Calv­ing Talk held by De­latite Vet Ser­vices at the Bon­nie Doon Club Rooms, De­latite vets are once again pro­vid­ing the town’s folk with free knowl­edge – this time on what to do when your pet is bit­ten by a snake.

On Mon­day, De­cem­ber 5 at 1:30pm and 6:30pm the clinic is hold­ing free ses­sions on snake bites in dogs and cats.

The ses­sions will cover top­ics such as:

Do you know what the first signs of snake bite are?

Would you know what to do?

Dr Anna Man­ning and the team will walk through dif­fer­ent sce­nar­ios and how best to save your pet.

As it is well known, the cost of vet­eri­nary treat­ment can be con­sid­er­able so part of the in­for­ma­tion ses­sion is aimed at pet in­sur­ance.

“We can’t avoid them from be­ing bit­ten but we can avoid the costs,” Dr Man­ning said.

“Get­ting your pet to the clinic as soon as pos­si­ble is the best thing any owner can do.”

For free tips, ad­vice and what to look for, get along to the in­for­ma­tion ses­sions – it could help save your pet’s life.

The in­for­ma­tion ses­sions will be held at the De­latite Vet­eri­nary Clinic at 7 Chen­ery Street.
