Can anyone give me any symptoms of what a cat would be like after a snake bite?
I have a 2 yo cat that is very lethargic - i was wondering if was a snake bite since its been hot here and have a bit of open land around here

He was fine when went out in the morning Sunday - that night found him lying on chair outside hardly able move doesnt seem in any pain - he's eating and drinking but thats about all the energy seems to have at present and has been nearly 2 days - there's no other symptoms to suggest anything to cause this sorta behavior (IE not flu etc)

PS Ifound this site/post doing a search for snake bits in cats - It looks great site:-)

Why don't you just take your cat to the vet? I can't figure out why people just wait around when they know their cat is suffering. I know it's hard to get off work to take a cat to the vet and I know it usually ends up being too expensive, but how can someone possibly just sit back and watch their cat be sick and not do anything. Especially if there is a possibility of a snake bite. <...snipped by admin>

Might be the heat, might also be a bug bite. I strongly advise you to visit the vet if this continues...but you know that already

Well will be taking to the vet when i can but actually hes improved a lot overnight - maybe was just the heat etc - as i said earlier though cat not in pain or look sick just incredibly tired is eating and drinking normally.

Only pondered what snake bites were like in cats considering the temps and the fact it is semi bush here.

If it were a snake bite, more serious symptoms, and you can look for 2 holes, search the body most carefully. But yes, maintain hydration via Pedialyte from a local store, found in baby sections a lot, anad visit vet. TRy vetinfo.com. God bless.
