Hello everyone. I'm asking you all to please say prayers for Riley. We took her to the creek tonight to do a bit of fishing and on our way back she walked down to the bank for one last look and then came back up and just stood there. I could tell something was wrong with her. We didn't see anything wrong, but she wouldn't let us get near her face and one eye was squinty. We took her to the emergency vet and they had to sedate her to be able to get a look at what was going on.
In the end he determined that there was a puncture wound on her head and it was bleeding and had caused bruising to the back of her eye. He said he thinks it was a snake bite. She is now left there getting anti-venom, antibiotics, and pain meds. We will pick her up in the morning and take her to her regular vet.
I am only hoping that since that was only one puncture mark and not much swelling that there wasn't a lot of poison. Please pray for her! I will keep you posted.
