Hi,I'm currently going through what seems to be a snake bite with my dog of 2yrs old . His paw is swollen at 1st then I watched slowly travel up his leg as I was on the phone with our vet . His eyes were dilated all the way and didn't not change with difference of light .My mother in law has had this happen to her dog and has given her dog eggs and the dog pulled through .now like other ppl on this site ,I'm telling you now that this is just what I am having to do on my own til I can get him
To the vet in the am . I would always consult your vet in any emergency with your pet . They do know best .But as for my dog , he seems to be doing ok for now I pray that he will be fine .I will be snake hunting after the vet vist.only because it isn't just my pets that are in danger but I have 2 small children as well that play in the very same area he was bit in . I read a post about a copperhead bite and I really appreciate the info that was shared .it helped me calm down and think straight.
