    yeah she can wag her tail..
    Boy O boy have I had a night..she's been sleeping in the kitchen/dining room and howling all night long.
    everytime i got up to her she'd stop.. She is driving me insane. woke up this morning to poop and pee everywhere.
    This is a nightmare.
    Vet did say if she isn't up by next friday bring her back.. There is a disease dogs can get but the vet said
    it is VERY VERY RARE and she doubts she would have it as she is perfectly fine and not getting worst.
    She responded well to the anti venom ..
    Poor girl can hear her pups and is howling so loud.
    We are not aloud to put the pups near her as vet said she didn't want puppies to feed from her,
    with all her weight she's lost and what she's been through ..
    Her milk is slowly drying up and I have to hot n cold pack them so she doesn't get mastitis ..
    I just hope she is ok fast...

    Geez your doing it tough........I feel for you. would putting a radio on near her overshadow the puppy noise?

    Still thinking of you guys and hoping she get better soon.

    Just an added though LL...Did they examine her spine at all. I just realise that she is still incontinent of both Faeces and urine. Just wondering if she has had a back injury, even secondary to all the other stuff that has happened to her.

    Also are you moving her from side to side at all, if she is not moving herself, because she could be prone to pressure skin damage. You might know all of this, just checking

    YEah I wil try anything..
    when the vet called this morning to see if she is doing ok she said why
    don't you put her in your bedroom with you so she stops howling..
    Um I can't do that, the mess would be shocking..
    Least there is tiles in the dining area we just mop up..
    She is laying on a big padded thing but one wee and that's drenched..

    feels like nursing a baby all over again..Boy O Boy..

    That is very tough, LL.

    I must say that what does worry me in this situation is that you never got a conclusive diagnosis. The improvement after the anti-venom could have been coincidence. I personally have never heard of such severe paralysis so long after a snake bite. I wonder if it would be worth getting a second opinion?

    Its great news LL that she's home, and in recovery, in her fave place with fave folks. A great recipe for recovery.

    Well done for getting through what has been one mishap to the next. Life sucks sometimes!

    Speedy recovery to you both.

    Yes we were thinking the same thing..
    Nothing was confirm really they just assumed a snake bite..
    However, I called many vets to get opinions and they all go
    with the snake bite...
    We seriously don't believe snake bite but what else could it be..
    I came home from taking the kids to school and she has pooped
    and peed and even vomited ..
    I feel so helpless for her.
    She layed in the garage last night with a fencing between her &
    puppies just so she can see them sniff them through fencing ect ....

    The vet says it she can't walk by next friday bring her back in..
    Other than this she is seriously a VERY healthy dog.
    She's in no pain what so ever, What the hell.
    All that money paid out and we didn't get a confirmed diagnosis ..
    Freaks me right out..

    Wow, Im not sure i would be coping so well LL...you are doing a great job. How are you going feeding the pups and how old are they now?
    It must be very hard for her too not being able to get to her puppies.

    all pups are eating on their own thank goodness.
    Tomorrow they will be 5 weeks and still beautiful.

    I just don't have a good feeling about my girl..
    I think there's more to it then a snake bite..
