We have a 5 month old bull that got bit on the front ankle by a snake. Vet said probably a copperhead. I just noticed he was limping bad and layed around alot. Vet came and gave him a couple shots, we repeated a day later. No change. It swelled up alot. Tried different antibiotic for a couple days, still after a few days no change in fact the leg was worse. The actual bite itself looked fine. No festering ever, healed right up but the swelling never went down and he would not put his foot down at all. You could see it pained him alot but He still got around, ate feed and grazed some. He is still on his momma, too. Anyway, we called vet back and he figured that thejoint(coffin bonejoint I think) had become infected and the antibiotics wernt working. So options at this point, were to cut off the claw above the joint, which we didnt want to do. The other option, which we chose was to inject this solution into the joint which would chemically fuse the bones in the joint together. We did this 3 days ago. We are supposed to give it a couple weeks to work.. We hope! Has anyone heard of this?? Had luck with this?? Any advice or tips would be great. We are hoping this works but it looks bleak. He is a big healthy bull otherwise just had bad luck with a snake bite!
