Livestock and snakes


By Dr Jeff Cave,
District Veterinary Officer

As the weather moves into warmer spring


days, snakes become more active.
All livestock, particularly horses, are
sensitive to the effects of snake venom.
The severity of a snake bite depends on the
size and species of the snake; the period
since the snake had last bitten prey; the time
after hibernation; the size of the animal it has
bitten; and the location of the bite.
There are several clinical signs that may
occur however, these can be inconsistent and
variable. In general, snake venom paralyses
muscles.
Affected animals may show signs of
excitement, develop muscle tremors and
have a weak, staggery gait.

How healthy
Affected animals may dribble saliva and
lose the ability to swallow. Paralysis of the
respiratory muscles will lead to respiratory
depression and death resulting from
asphyxia.
