I think it was a Cotton Mouth and it bit her in the face. Lucy's face is swelling up and she is hurting but the Vet thinks she should be alright.

Did she need anti-venom? Has the vet given her anything for pain?
I hope she heals up quick|

We have given her pills for pain, swelling and Antibiotics. The swelling in her face has gone down but has moved to her throat and left leg like the Vet said it probably would. At least she is drinking a little bit of water and doesn't seem to be in much pain.

(Not quite as serious as a cottomouth), and fully recovered. The only permanent result is a small mark under one nostril.

have lots of rattlers here in our N. Ca. Sierra Nevada mountains and they can be lethal for dogs and sometimes people. My Judge .410 works well, but I prefer my Wingmaster in 12ga.
Good you went to the vet|

The sire of one our dogs died after being bitten by a rattlesnake. The owner did not get adequate vet treatment (might have been none at all). I asked MY vet what to do if a rattler bit, and he said the dog must get not one, but TWO anti-venom treatments. He told me that many people tried to save money by having only 1 treatment, but that 2 were usually necessary.
Sorry to hear that Ken|

cottonmouth on the leg. It was a Sunday and the vet said come in and it will cost you a fortune, or give him 2 aspirin and he will be fine.
Good info for me to read..|
