Abstract

A nine-month-old female Labrador was presented with viper snake bite. The same animal was reported earlier also with envenomation two months ago. The animal had swelling of face and oozing of blood from the oral cavity. The diagnosis was based on history, symptoms and presence of fang marks. The animal was treated with fluids, corticosteriods, anti-venom and antibiotics. The animal had an uneventful recovery.
