So I was outside throwing the ball to my 6 month old puppy today and it landed near or in the lariope and he went to get it. He sniffed in the plant and then jumped back and ran away. At first I thought he had found a yellow jackets nest. But I walked up and saw the copperhead. I killed it with a shovel and took the dog to the vet. The vet gave him an antihistamine and and and IV. My dog is going to be ok but hes really swollen In the cheek where he got bit. Anyone else ever have a dog get bit?
