Snake Season in Arizona

WARNING! Warm weather means snake season right around the corner……One of the most common human bites is the lady of the family bitten on the hand while pulling weeds in the garden. Men are frequently bitten by being macho, killing snakes with shovels, picking snakes up, etc some of these are alcohol related. Call the fire department to have snake removed. Recently saw a private companies truck that performs that service. Dogs and cats that are bitten are actually rooting the rascals out of the yard and protecting their owners and their childern. One third of the bites we saw at the Emergency Service were snake avoidance trained, why expose your pet to this shock collar treatment with stats like this? As logic tells us antivenim is the only real treatment for this problem.
