Chloe is recovering slowly, despite having to take her back for another day at the vets because she reacted to the anti-venom after I took her home. Apparently it is common when the dog has had anti-venom previously.
So it turns out because it was the second time around she should have had an anti-histamine shot & also a shot of cortisone at the time when she was given the anti-venom.
She is a lot lot better but not quite back to her old self.
I'm off for a few days, leaving Chloe in the hands of my darling daughter & wonderful house-sitter"H". I have known "H" for ten years & she has been house sitting for me for five of those years. She is absolutely wonderful but this time just alittle bit of me may still worry for the "little dog"
The curse of Jack Russell Terriers they just can't help themselves.
Another bottle of VERY expensive anti-venom.
She has been lucky both times, as we have been around & have got her to the vet quickly, one day I know we won't be.
At least this time we know she will survive. Last time she had 3 serious bites with one being on the neck it was real touch & go for weeks.
Today only one just above her paw.
We haven't seen a snake here in years but they came to slash the vacant block next door & maybe that's why, she was actually sitting up on my lap when she saw our Red Cattle Dog react to something, she was off my lap in a flash and well.... the rest is history(NOT!!)
