Snake Bite

I think our 11 year old black lab(Hombre) went and got himself snake bit two times. He aint doing real well. Anyone got any suggestions on how to home rimedy(sp) him? He really is a good dog but just loves to sneak off and chase the girls then take a dip in the local ponds while in route home. Guess he like to come home nice and clean. I still think the to big knots on his throat are from snake bites. Maggie has tried to get an asprin down him but he don't want to move from in front of the back door or eat either. Any help would be appricated.

If you can get him to lick salty, bacon grease. The old folks used this when there was no money for vets in rattler country. My dog was bitten on the nose and everything swelled so bad he couldn't chew. He was able to lick this and drink a little water. He got well and went on to later kill that particular snake and many,many more.

When I was a kid, we had a German Shepherd, and he got snake bit numerous times. He walked the trails ahead of us, and first thing we knew, he would make a jump and have a rattler in his mouth shaking it from side to side. I always figured he saved all us kids lives, one time or another.

Anyway, when he got snake bit, he would just crawl up under the house, and there he would stay until he was okay. We would push food and water under there to him, but I am not sure he ate til he was well. He would come out in 3/4 days, thin as a rail, but would have fought off the poison. That is all we did, for we couldn't have afforded a vet bill even if we'd had a way to get him to town.

Maybe 20 years ago, we had a Dobie mix that got snake bit on the face. It lay around a few days and was all right, but I don't think he had a very good sense of smell after that, for some reason.

Hope your dog gets along okay.

JB my first male white german shepard used to walk infront of me like that. one night going to the pond to get my knife i had left that day he stopped in front of me. He wouldnt move so id bump him. he turned and growled then id push him and got snapped at i was about to give him a good kick and he turned side ways and walked me backwards then ran forward and shook the snot out of something. Found out it was a 2 foot long water mocasin. I was about a mile from the house at dusk when it happened. I truly think the old dog saved me.

I can believe that, Taylor! If I could live in the country again, my first order of bidness would be to get me a German Shepherd! Now, our old Dash may have snatched up non-poisonious snakes and shook them to death, too, but I don't remember any. He was hell on rattlers, and my oldest brother had a big cigar box plum full of rattlers, courtesy of old Dash! Guess that was the best dog that ever owned us!

PLEASE!! DO NOT give your dog ANY aspirin OR Tylenol!!! A dog's system cannot process those things and they can't do real well which may be why the dog is doing poorly..I hope the Asprin didn't get in..CALL the vet..advice is FREE..the bacon grease may help to take down swelling..mud will help also..did you see the snake?? Since you have a puter look on or any self help site to find out what to do from home for snake bite..let me know how it fingers are crossed and NEVER give a dog OR cat Acetminaphin/Naproxin or any other pain reliever without the consent of your vet
