Had two other dogs bitten. Shot of antibiotics plus little steroids to control swelling and they recovered. These are small snakes. A friend in south Texas has the big diamond backs and has lost several dogs to them. He snakeproofs all his now.
Literally. Have a b!tch get snakebitten at my new kennel site last week. Knew it was a snakebite from the immediate swelling. Got her to the vet asap and two day and 1200 dollars later she was good as new. Likely a prairie rattler. The antivenin is expensive but works miracles. I wear leggins out there now. Be aware and the snakebite shots are worth the money.
