The responsible pet owner’s guide for snake season
Being a pet owner is really rewarding, but it’s hard work as well. After all, we are responsible for our pets health, happiness and safety. Part of this is taking extra special care of our pets during the summer, particularly when it comes to snakes.
In some areas, it’s always snake season in South Africa, but pet owners need to be especially vigilant in summer months when they thrive. Snake encounters typically don’t end well, so it’s best to reduce risk of exposure.
How can you protect your curious pets and what should you do if something happens? Let’s take a look.
