What diseases do Snakes carry and how can I protect my pets?

Do you have unwanted snakes living on your property? Do you have cats, dogs, and children living at your property as well? This can be a very dangerous situation for all involved parties. Snakes are major carriers of diseases that can affect both people and pets alike. In fact, snakes can host numerous parasites at a time that can make people and pets very ill and sometimes cause fatalities. How will you protect your pets and family from the dangers of Snakes? For one, you need to identify what diseases you need to protect your family and pets from. Snakes are carriers of Protozoa, Tapeworms, Roundworms, and Salmonella. Protozoa can cause digestive, respiratory, and reproductive-related illnesses in people and pets. Tapeworms can harm your digestive system. Roundworms can cause permanent damage to your lungs and digestive system. Salmonella can cause high fever, chills, and diarrhea. Also, Salmonella can also harm your bloodstream and all it takes is a little contact with snake fecal matter to jeopardize your health. What is the best way to protect your family and pets from Snakes? You need to hire a professional snake removal company that’s ready to remove venomous and non-venomous snakes from your property. It is important to seek immediate professional snake control services as soon as possible to prevent children and pets from snake bites. It only takes one strike to the head or nose for a pet or child to become at risk of a snake injury or even worse …death. Snakes are not afraid to attack when they feel threatened. Snakes are notoriously known for biting sheep, goats, cattle, and overall livestock in Montgomery County. Here are common signs a snake bite has to happen to your pet or child:

  1. There’s visible swelling or dark patches on your pet/child.
  2. Your child or pet is experiencing nausea.
  3. Your child is experiencing tingling of the skin.
