Abstract

Snake envenomation has been widely reported throughout the human and veterinary literature. The effects of venom include coagulation disorders, neurotoxicity, and tissue effects, such as local swelling and necrosis. Significant progress has been made in understanding the pathophysiology of envenomation, leading to changes in treatment protocols. Recent developments include the production of a new antivenin and a canine rattlesnake vaccine.
