Pupdate (snake bite)

It’s 8 PM and Gummi has just gotten his second dose of antibiotics today. He got antibiotics and prednisolone at 8 AM and at that point he was clearly swelling up and sneezing until he started bleeding.. But after 12 hours since the pred he’s not yet swelling enough to start the sneezing so he IS getting a little better. It’s still a bit swollen and I’ll still check on him tonight. But yesterday and overnight he’d get much worse 10 hours after the pred so we’re feeling a bit more positive tonight. He’s even attempted to chase the cats, so perhaps keeping him calm will be the main challenge from now on.

Thanks for all the good wishes!

  5. I’m glad your beginning to feel better. Keep getting better and give your Mom lots of snuggles and kisses so she won’t feel so stressed about your ouchie nose. Don’t forget to take it easy and rest like the Dr and your Mom said it will be good for you.
