Tiger snake (Notechis scutatus) envenomation in a horse.
Aust Vet J. 2013 Sep; 91(9):381-4.AV

Abstract

BACKGROUND

A 7-year-old Thoroughbred gelding presented with muscle fasciculation, reluctance to move, profuse sweating, tachycardia, tachypnoea and a localised, unilateral swelling on the muzzle. History and physical examination were suggestive of snake envenomation.

METHODS

A sandwich ELISA for the detection of snake venom was performed on serum and urine samples.

RESULT

The test performed on urine confirmed a diagnosis of tiger snake envenomation.

CONCLUSION

The response to treatment with antivenom and supportive medical therapy was excellent.
