They got her started on antivenin, a mild sedative because she is highly reactive because of Luke Rhodes Badge WHT shirt(my son rescued her from being a bait dog), and some antibiotics. They expected her to need 4 vials (at $400/vial) of antivenin due to her size and the dangerous location of the bite. Ziggy only took 1. The vet said that she likely had been bitten by this type of snake before, because she bounced back so much faster than anticipated! She was ready to come home only 12 hours after she got there!
Ziggy is our canine hero – the corner she found the snake is where my granddaughter’s play set is, and the munchkin was headed over there when Ziggy killed the snake. My granddaughter, who had beaten cancer at just 2 and survived surgery on a tumor at just 2 days old, would likely have been bitten if Ziggy hadn’t rushed over.
