There are four types of venomous snakes in America: rattlesnake, copperhead, cotton mouth, and coral snake. Each snake may possess a combination of four types of venom: neurotoxins, which cause muscle weakness and lack of coordination; cardiotoxins, which may result in abnormal heart rate or heart stoppage; cytotoxins, which will cause heavy tissue damage around the bite; and hemotoxins, which destroy red blood cells, resulting in anemia or clotting issues. Vet treatment is immediately needed if you suspect your pet has been bitten, and it may be useful for you to take a picture of the snake for identification purposes. Your veterinarian will take over from there.
