Just found a snake wrapped around my very young silkie. Took care of the snake and the Silkie is alive and upright-a bit shaken but not too noticeably suffering or traumatized. After an exam I found it is bleeding a small bit on its thigh. I am going to clean it with alcohol. What else can I do? The snakes head was larger than the body and I am going to suspect it may have been a juvenile poisonous snake. I don't have a way to take a pic. My question would be, is there anything else I can do for it? If it was poisonous, will the silkie die? I would say the silkie is about 6 to 7 weeks old. The ibte left enough blood for two cottonballs to be bloodied when cleaning.
