I made a post about a rattlesnake vaccine as I had just took my puppy to get part 1 of the 2 shot series.

And today, the same puppy got snakebit. What the heck!

My Grandfather had a bird dog in the 1930s that got bit three different years with timber rattlers while hunting grouse. Always got hit on the front legs. He said it limped around for a couple weeks then healed up enough to hunt again. He said that dog never learned a fear for snakes.

Dang. Hows it doing. Had my best bird dog get bit guiding a group from Texas. It was 42 degrees out when it happened. Sounds like we have about the same luck

If a snake can choose to dry bite of envenomate can they give your dog a newspaper tap on the nose and go only 1/2 in?

I have always wondered that.

Dangit people this post is about my dog being hurt not me, LOL. I'm healed up and back to work.

Matt, I have no idea. I was at work. My husband went outside when he heard her screeching and kiying on the porch. It must have just happened as she wasn't even swollen yet. He brought her inside and she was running around acting all crazy and screaming every time her front foot hit the ground. He texted me and by the time I saw the text and drove home her leg was swollen up like a chunk of cordwood.

We took her to our vet which is an old timey country vet and he shot several CCs of Depo Medrol into the swollen area. I found out Depo Medrol is a steroid like prednisone but stronger and works similar to dexamethasone on a snake bite I guess. But that was all he did. He told me I could give her Benadryl (but only after I asked) so when I got home I gave her 25mg of it. A little googling showed it was fine to give antibiotics with Depo Medrol so she got 500mg of amoxicillin as well, since antibiotics and Benadryl is what I've used successfully in the past on bad snake bites. The only one I've seen as bad as this one was the one my last redbone (the one in the profile pic) got when she was about a year old. This pup is only 4 months though. She's been sleeping since we got home, but bawls every now and then in pain. frown

She sure is pretty, but then I like all Redbones. I hope she gets alright.

If I had to guess I'd say cottonmouth just because I see more of them than anything else around. And because she likes to play down by our pond a lot.

Let my JRT out the other night and noticed he was sniffing something and about the time I realized it was a snake I hollered, he jumped and it struck.

Got him on the right front leg

Copperhead between 24-30" but luckily it was a dry bite

They lay up under the oaks here waiting on cicadas to come out of the ground

Would that be by accident or is like porcupines where some dogs will just keep going back for more.

I guess cause you lived up north a snake bit on a dog is a big deal but growing up dogs stayed snake bit all summer, might pour some bacon grease down
their throat now and then but other than that never bothered with it, they would heal up in a few days and find another one to get bit by.

Never heard of a dog dying from snake bite, especially hounds as they stayed bit if you ran them in warm weather.

My dog got bit by a copperhead the other night. He was on a leash, and I did not see it. My dog spun around, pawing at his muzzle, and nothing happened after that. So, it must have been a dry bite.
I hope you lil pup comes through ok!
