Pray for my sweet pup, Chess. It seems he’s danced a not-so-fun tango with a dreaded copperhead and was bitten in the leg. We had to take him to the vet today, and he is staying overnight for fluids and antibiotics. God love him! He looked so miserable and in pain.
The vet says a leg is a bad place to be bitten. The real dangerous lies in infection setting up in the leg, so he will be on antibiotics for a while.
There have been several rattlesnakes and copperheads found in our neighborhood recently. So the snakes are out! I just hate Chess had to find out the hard way! 😢
If you live in the country, watch where you step! Be safe!
Chess was eating and drinking this morning and able to walk. He’s at home in a kennel. He seems to be doing great and will have to keep an eye on his leg, so infection won’t set in. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE PRAYERS!!!! I appreciate them all! 💜💜💜 🐕 Chess thanks you, too! 😇
