Unfortunately, Texas also has copperhead snakes. Kshanks19’s poor pup was bitten by one and had to be taken to the vet. Luckily, the doggo is all fine and dandy now, but they had to give her some painkillers.
After the vet gave her painkillers, the pup went into full derp-mode, and made the most hilarious face ever.
Kshanks19 took a picture of her drugged-up pup and uploaded it to Reddit.
When asked if they had to give her dog anti-venom, Kshanks19 explained more about the situation:
“Fortunately she didn’t have to have the antivenom. Her vitals were all normal and just had a small fever. She was super lethargic and in pain though. Thankfully for her size (130lb) her system will flush it out without issue. Size definitely matters. The vet told me that out of all the poisonous snakes in Texas the copperhead is the best one to get bit by. Their bodies just handle it better. Got aent up with pain pills and antibiotics and she’s doing great! Still slow amd in pain but alert and eating. Also, the copperhead was a baby and only got one fang in her. She was lethargic 5 minutes later and drooling. I’m ripping everything out of my backyard that could house a snake this weekend. Scariest moment of my life.”
Such a good dog.
