My sweet girl got snake bitten!
Yesterday afternoon she acted like she could barely walk and I couldn't imagine what was wrong. She had a look on her face like she was sick. She laid down on her bed that is on the porch and I noticed a bit of swelling on her neck. I called my husband to come look and we saw the "bite" of which she would not let you get near with your hand. So off they went.....20 miles....during another round of heavy downpour to the vet.
He said it was treated in time, 2 shots and pills for follow up should do the trick.
Meanwhile she remains lethargic and pitiful. (the search will take place this afternoon for the varmit)
You can see the (bite) dark spot above the swelling.
She is so afraid of thunder and lightning and has been spending the evening in the chair with me with her head under a blanket. Last night when it thundered she got off her bed, gave me a look like "what else can happen" and sauntered into the bedroom closet to sleep.
I am looking forward to family arriving for the weekend, so I am off to clean/cook. Have a good weekend.....I'll see you all soon. It's a fish fry, crawfish boil weekend.....yum.
