One of our cats has now had a second snake bite in two and a half years. We have got her to our local (wonderful) vet in Polis on both occasions but he does not agree with the use of 'home' kits for bites. We are thinking we should get one of these kits in case our vet is not around and we would have to take the cat to Paphos.

Has anyone used one of these kits?

Thanks.

If the kit is used to force the pet to ease the chock, it can be OK. But cat has to be taken to vet immediately anyway

But it is important also to see what snake it is. 90% is not dangerous for cats and dogs

Hi

We always carry one of these kits, it contains some form of cortizone for snake bites that you have to administer with a needle (also in the kit), and this helps ease the shock of the bite, and gives you time to get to the vets. It also comes with all the necessary medicines for if the animal is poisoned - together with instructions.

We actually got our kit from D & N vets on the polis road. Never had to use it yet but always take with us for dog walks.

Hope your cat is recovering well.:)
