Considering my recent snake bite issue, viewtopic.php?f=15&t=1478, I realized that it may be a good idea to post my treatment regimen in case anyone else should need it.

For a Lacy size dog,
Dexamethazone for pain, 2CC intramuscular as needed not more than once daily
Benadryl Allergy tabs for antihistamine and swelling, 2 tabs first dose, one 8 hours later, one daily there after.
Duramyacine (Antibiotic) to battle infection, 2CC intramuscular daily
Vitamin C or Emergen-C immune defense daily

As seen in the link above, treatment should start immediately as postponing treatment only manifest the issue.

Another thing the vet recommended was DMSO topical on the wound

Jerry, how did he say dmso helped with the bite? I thought it just helped other meds penatrate to the joint tissue faster? like with absorbine etc, for muscle and sprains.
