Last night my son's dog, Snoopy, got bit by a 2' copperhead. We didn't know that he was even around it. Our Carin terrier, Herbie, found the snake and was barking at it. We got him away from it and killed it. Poor Snoopy looks like he has a BAD case of the muimps. It got him on the side of the neck. Our vet said that if he was going to get bitten by a poisonous snake copperheads are the least toxic. He spend the day at the vet's getting fluids, pain killers and antibiotics. He looks so pitiful.
