Dog got bit


Recommended Posts

My poor dog got bit by a snake down at the river! Her front leg is mangled pretty bad.  She is finally starting to put weight on it though, and the swelling has gone down significantly.  The vet said to keep an eye on the bruising to make sure it doesnt spread.  Ill try to upload a few pics.  It is mostly my fault for allowing her to run through the thickets and such on the river banks.

Dogs just naturally hate snakes.  I wish they were afraid of them like us but nope, that's not the deal.  Hope your dog gets well soon.  I've had way too many dogs v. copperhead experiences.  Nearly all were fine.

My ex-FIL dog got it right in the face.  Head swelled up like a basketball, and the dog couldn't eat for almost 2 weeks.  We thought she was a goner..... but she pulled through just fine.   No vet or anything, just one shot of the antibiotic that his neighbor gave to his hogs.
