well fuck, turns out chi chi ran back after this asshole snake and was bit in the head.
Grandmaster Flash said it best "It's like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder
How I keep from going under" Look at how big her head is from the bite.. my poor, poor baby. I wish it would have bitten me, I would have taken the bite for her. FUCK you rattlesnake. They said it was most likely a Mohave rattler and those are worse than a diamond back. She made it thru the night but the vet almost called me bcuz she was having a really hard time and almost didn't make it. Her clotting levels were off the charts and her blood pressure got really high. She's a fighter so I'm hoping she'll pull through it. I do not like emergency vet's I think they take advantage and overcharge you bcuz they know they can... they have to pay for all those fancy MAC computers some how. it was $600 for ONE anti venom shot!!! $229 for the IV fluid set up and $105 just for the visit... that's not counting all the other things they had to do-1st estimate $1,800!!. I need to say thank you to my best friend and husband for helping me out. They are the best.
****UPDATE**** She's stable and doing just OK.. they said her platelets or whatever are going up again and that she'll need another one of those $600+ anti-venom shots. I think I have the most expensive dogs in the world.. Right now i'd be able to buy a real nice motorcycle with the amount of the bill so far..but, Chi Chi is worth it.
