I have recently discovered that veterinary practices in Turkey cannot access the antiserum for animals bitten by the Viper snake. The antiserum is only available from State Hospitals and State Health Clinics. Because it is a drug that needs to be recorded they will only administer it to people themselves. When our vet queried this with the Ministry of Agriculture she was told it was only available for humans.
So sadly this means that pets as well as cats and dogs being cared for by Animal Welfare Groups die unnecessarily.
In order to stop painful and unnecessary deaths we implore the Ministry of Agriculture to allow veterinary practices to obtain and administer the antiserum.
Sayin Tarim Bakanligi,
Veteriner pratisyenlerin, Vipera yılan sokmasına karsin panzahir elde etmelerine ve uygulamalarina izin verilmesini dusunmenizi istirham ederiz.
Ne yazik ki bir cok hayvan, veterinerlerin bu panzehiri elde edememesi sebebiyle, gereksiz yere olmektedir.
Dear Ministry of Agriculture Office,
We implore you to please consider allowing veterinary practices to obtain and administer antiserum for bites from the Viper snake.
Sadly quite a lot of animals die unnecessarily because veterinary’s do not have access to the antiserum.
