Snake Bite

Postby Duck Diver » Tue Jul 15, 2014 4:02 pm

My dog got bit in the back yard last night. Of all the places I go.

I big learning ordeal for me. Dog is much more himself today but clearly pretty sore.

Never saw the snake or knew what happened just saw him limping. Checked him out and saw a swollen spot the size of a half dollar on his from paw area. It was oozing fluid.

Called the vet and decide to go immediately on standby when I saw him closing his eyes and laying down. This dog has energy like the best of them.

The vet couldn't determine if insect or snake, but she had shaved the area. I gave him benedryll and started anti biotics

After I got home it was clear blood was coming from 2 small puncture marks in the wound. He got worse, swelled up to the knee. This happened around 3pm and around midnight he stood up to eat/drink and air.

Energy is back today, some swelling down and he appears to be on the mend.

So much to learn about these dogs.......

Hope you don't have kids playing back there!
Life is to short to hunt with a ugly gun.

Try snake-a-way. This product claims to repel both poisonous and non-poisonous snakes, bonus is this product is safe for both humans and pets.
