Elle got to come home from the hospital for the weekend but she has to go back on Monday. She’s glad to be home and we’re happy to have her with us. She is still in a great deal of pain and only wants to lie very still. She is staying in her crate most of the time. I’m so glad that I crate trained her when she was a puppy. It’s been handy for all the times I needed to keep her confined after her surgeries or when she was injured.
My vet bill was quite reasonable, in fact, it seems rather low. But, my vet is not one to hang it in you like some. She tries to be very fair.
Here are some pictures I took when I was giving Elle a sponge bath (click to enlarge). I hope this information will be helpful to others. There have been many hits on the other posts from people searching for information about dogs and snake bites.
