    Oh no LL that is really shit*y luck!

    I have also heard of female dogs dying from a tick that was lodged in its vaginal area. So please please ask the vet to search extra thoroughly, search every nook and cranny, they fit in the smallest places. Under dew claws is another one, in between their toes/pads of the foot, and on the inside of their lips and ears.

    Sending your girl lots of positive vibes, hoping she pulls through for you and the pups.

    Vet just phoned me back.sheis doing well still can't stand up , the vet says def looks like venom bite but because the test came back negative she said we will never know what actually happen.
    I have to take in some food for her today as she isn't eating the food they are offering.
    So basically I have a huge bill and I am also feeding my own do with my own food.
    I am devastate really devastated.
    Vet said wont be for a couple of days until she can walk..
    Not sure if we should pick her up and bring her home or what .
    Will talk to the vet when we go down there I guess.
    All I can say is I will never return to this vet in my life time.
    While we were there a girl had to put her pet down n the vet
    Didn't look like she give a crap.
    Basically they give u the options, pay the bill, take our dog home to die
    Or put your dog down . WTF do you do.
    I can see where they r coming from but how sad is the situation when u
    Don't have the money, seriously.

    I am sorry to hear about your girl. It makes it even harder to cope with when the almighty $ pokes its head up.
    I just hope there is something more positive for you today.

    I remember once when my wolfhound was very young he had a similar experience. The vets were convinced it was snake bite, but it ended up being a neurotoxic reaction to a plant. The biggest difference I can see from what you describe, however, was he was drooling uncontrollably.

    If the vet thinks snake bite, can't they simply administer the anti-venine, or is there a time limit. Perhaps it has to be a specific one? Have to admit, I'm ignorant on the subject.

    Fingers and toes crossed your girl recovers and your dramas are over. You've had one hell of a rough ride.

    Hugs to you and yours, especially those gorgeous puppies!

    oh i know what you mean LL about those emergency after hour vets they are terrible!daylight robbery they are, I had to take my cat in once & this poor young couple were ringing anybody they could to try and come up with the deposit for their dog - until a deposit was paid their dog was unable to receive any treatment & that was the vibe you got, pay up or go home which is sad. I was thanking my lucky stars that my employer was able to give me an advance on my pay or we would have been in the same boat.

    I'm glad your girl sounds like she is perking up a little.

    Unfortunately they do need to know the type of snake it was, as there are different antivenoms for different snakes. I'm pretty sure there's some antivenoms that can be used to treat the bites of multiple types of snakes, but it could be more dangerous to guess and administer the wrong one, not to mention expensive as well. On the bright side, she is a large dog and that will give her a better chance, and fingers crossed if it was a snake bite that she didn't receive a lethal dose of venom!

    LL you really are having a terrible year. You deserve a break from all this tragedy, I hope there's something really good coming your way soon!

    Lucky lady I'm so sorry you're going through all this.

    Are you coping ok with the pups at home without mum? At four weeks, with sick mum, I would wean them. If you need any help or advice just let me know.

    Big hugs to you and your OH.

    My mum lost her old Goldie years ago to a tick, it was high up on her gum at the back of her mouth.
