Warning! Adder Bites

Seadown Vets reports having 4 dogs brought in this week after being bitten by adders. (They are waking up after the winter and appear a little grumpy).

Advice from Seadown is if your dog is bitten by an adder take it to the Vet immediately and ring to say you are on your way. Seadown stresses adder bites are VERY rarely fatal.

There is also a risk of people being bitten while out walking on the forest too. Extra precautions should be taken at this time of year, watch out for sleepy adders and wear good boots or wellies and trousers rather than sandals and bare legs. 

The NHS has advice of what to do in the event of being bitten on this website
