armer weatherleads to anincrease in out-side activities, forhumans, pets and espe-cially rattlesnakes. When the temperaturerises in Lincoln, so doesthe presence of rat-tlesnakes, which arefound in wetlands,deserts and forests, fromsea level to mountain ele-vations. Certain areas of Lincoln are more prone torattlesnakes than othersbut a pet owner mustalways be careful whenout with their pet. About 7,000 to 8,000humans are bitten by venomous snakes in theUnited States each year.The best estimate of dogsand cats bitten by ven-omous snakes is about150,000. Dogs and catsare about 300 times morelikely to be bitten by ven-omous snakes than to getrabies. Avoiding the rat-tlesnake is the bestmethod of prevention. Walk along clear path- ways and keep grasseslow and clear of debris.Mow tall grass and weedsto make the habitat lessdesirable for rodents, amajor food source forsnakes.• Keep firewood andother items in a coveredbox.• Do not use large land-scape rocks in open, sun-ny areas as the rocksretain heat to keep snakes warm.• If you live in an areaprone to snakes, a snakefence is a popular way tominimize your risk. Many online companies offersprays or neuro-electricdevices. However, there isno known effective repel-lant for rattlesnakes.
What to do whenyou encounter arattlesnake
• Freeze when you hearthe rattlesnake and look to see where the snake islocated. Make sure thereis only one snake.• Slowly back away from the snake until youare no longer within strik-ing distance (half thesnake’s length) and thesnake stops rattling. Thesnake senses your pres-ence by your body heatand movement.• Do not allow your petto attack the snake and donot attempt to handle thesnake.Many times, the ownersof dogs bitten are notthere at the time of thebite. Check for signs yourpet has been bitten, suchas puncture wounds,immediate severe painand swelling, lethargy, weakness and muscletremors. Animals suspected of being bitten should beseen by a veterinarianand monitored for at leasteight hours. According to Red Rock Biologics, “The severity of a rattlesnake envenoma-tion is related to thespecies of the rattlesnakeinvolved, the amount of venom injected and therate at which the venom iscirculated in relation tothe size of the dog. Inunvaccinated dogs,approximately 20 to 25percent of venomousbites are ‘dry’ bites, whereno venom is injected.”Prevention is key tohelping pets recover. Vac-cinated dogs appear topresent fewer and lesssevere symptoms. It isreported to delay theeffects and reduce theseverity as well as help theanimal recover morequickly with less pain andswelling. Vaccinations differfrom antivenin becauserattlesnake vaccine stim-ulates a dog to create hisown antibodies that pro-tect it from bites whereasantivenin is antibodiesmade from another ani-mal (typically horse orsheep) that is injectedinto the animal that hasbeen bitten. A smaller dog is always going to have aharder time fighting off the same amount of ven-om as a larger dog and will need all the help they can get. Any dogs over fourmonths of age that have arisk of encountering a rat-tlesnake should be vacci-nated. Protection fromvaccine boosters lastsabout six months andpets should be vaccinatedaccordingly. A dog shouldget two doses about 30days apart in the initialsequence. Even if an ani-mal has been bitten, they may still receive a vacci-nation. Animals suspected of being bitten by a rat-tlesnake should have vet-erinary attention, regard-less if the bite occurredseveral hours earlier. It’snot too late to get your petprotected, as we havealready treated pets forrattlesnake bites and havehad success. Remember,pets are family, too!
