I installed a 5x10 dog kennel on my patio and I want to snake proof it. I was going to use aluminum plaster mesh, but it is only 27" tall. The article suggests 36" tall!

Amynah Farid Sep 27, During this last episode, she suddenly experienced major pain in her right hind leg, as well…and then she began to limp on her front right leg. All of the issues are happening on the right side of her body, which is the side of her body she was bit on. Would the homeopathic remedies you mention above still help her, 13 years after getting bit by the rattlesnake, or are there more appropriate ones that would work better at this point? Also, where can I purchase the homeopathic remedies?
Best of luck with her, what ever you choose. My husbands horse was bitten by a rattlesnake sometime through the night, last night. My husband rushed him to the vet this morning and they gave him some shots. We live in a small town in NM and I was wondering if i ran to the herb store and picked up Echinacea tablets, if that would be okay to give him and how many of the mg tablets?
I am sorry if this sound like a simple question, I am new at all of this. Thanks in advance. Thank you in advance. Search my Resources page for the AVH list and see who you can find who can get remedies to you. Best to have a vet guide you though. All the best. Hello Dr. Falconer, Last summer my half lab was bitten by a rattle snake in between her toes on her back left paw.
I had turmerick on hand, as well Benedryl capsules. I also gave her a shot for tetanus. She healed up in two weeks but still has a bright red side on her belly. She had a swollen leg that had turned black and blue, as well as that left side of her belly.
Some of the hair around that paw fell out. What can I give her to get the color back to a light pink again on her belly? When I realized I was taking my dog places she could be snake bitten I found a snake aversion class as a preventive measure.
Well I did my research and located options that I was comfortable with to include homeopathy which I already had some background with. Fast forward 7 years. The next day something is wrong but she snaps at me not letting me near her leg.
I did some energetic trauma clearing thinking she may have pulled a muscle or broken something. It was fortunate that the snake only hit her with one fang. A practitioner friend I consult with put Raphaela on her LIFE biofeedback system, we did charcoal capsules to sop up poison, high level dose of Arsenicum, Ledum, and Croatulus. Vitamin C, greens, liver herbs, beets. Croatulus 6c and echinacea herb tincture to follow up. I also did yogurt with plantain herb.
Note my dog has been on a predominately raw food diet since I got her when she was 2. Raphaela recovered in a few days. She is 10 this year. No noticeable after effects. She acts like a pup and still easily jumps into the pick up.
Note I am currently south of Santa Fe. I have used Natural Health Supply homeopathics for years and can highly recommend their quality. I would welcome contact with other folks especially in NM. I have a ton of snakebite research that I have done and am glad to share it if there is a way to get me your email. Hello Dr Falconer, I used to live in Austin, and know your name.
Thank you for what your are offering to support those of us who want a more wonderful way for our 4 leggeds. Nice work, Cassandra! I, too, have seen the proper remedy turn the potentially deadly venomous snake bite victims around. You did a very broad, naturopathic approach as well, all supportive. Thank you Dr Falconer. She finally went out to relieve herself and when she came back in the swelling on the inside of her leg and the fang mark could be seen.

Often the edge of the tissue swelling is marked on the skin with a suitable marker, to monitor the spread of the injury. Fast-acting corticosteroids may be given within the first 24 hours to help control shock, and reduce swelling and inflammation. Although the use of corticosteroids is controversial. Antivenom, also known as antivenin, is a direct way of neutralizing the snake venom. However, the sooner the dog gets the antivenom treatment the better, as it works best if it is given within the first 6 hours after the Rattlesnake bite.
Another disadvantage is that there is a small risk of the dog having an allergic reaction to the antivenom. Often antibiotics are given as there is a high risk of the bite wound becoming infected with bacteria. Rattlesnake bites hurt a lot. Therefore, every dog should have some pain relief administered regularly until the swelling improves. If the dog has suffered severe blood loss or hemolysis destruction of red blood cells then a whole blood transfusion may be necessary to combat the blood loss.Jan 17, · Snake Remedies – Boon for Coagulopathies Dr. Kavita Chandak discusses snake remedies in relation to coagulopathies.
