Our 60 lb. dog got bite by a rattle snake last Sunday, it has been a week. He is sleeping a lot,...
tires easily, and eat very little. His leg, where he was bitten was really swollen and he was not able to walk on it. He can now walk a little on it, how long will all this last and is he slowing dying from the venom?
I think you should take it to a vet...I think you should have done this when it first got bit...especially since you knew it was a poisonous snake
If you have a relationship with a vet, call them and ask for advice. If not, you can take your dog to one of the 24 hr hospitals. If you have any large teaching colleges with animal programs, you can try them also. Hope your dog has a full recovery.
please take your dog to a vet. you don't want any snake posion getting into his heart. he is prolly suffering right now but of course he can't tell you because he is a dog ;_;
You dog is dying and it is a very slow death and it may be a very painful death too....You should have taken you dog to the vet as soon as this happened....The only thing the vet would do for your dog now is put it to sleep which would be mercy for the dog since you don't care enough about it to take care of it yourself.
OMG..yeah its probably a little late now, I used to spend the summers with my Grandfather a vet, and snake bites need to be treated immediately, its possible his internal organs are slowly shutting down...there are steps to be taken immediately..immobilize the dog to prevent the venom from circulating, wash the bite with water to remove remaining venom from the skin, never use alcohol or cold packs, alcohol increases absorption of venom and cold packs can increase damage to skin tissues...light pressure and a tourniquet is used on a leg... and yes in areas where poisonous snake bites are common they do carry anti venom but its very expensive..... but it sounds like he is already about dead.....take him to the vet and see..
