Might want to have Vet check him out. I have only had knowledge of a dog being bitten by a snake on face...usually resolved itself in 2-3 days. Would also depend on the type of snake. Would think that if it was a "fatal" bite, calf would have been dead by now. The "Vipers" which produce a neurotoxin, such as Copperheads, and Rattlesnakes can kill fairly fast if the bitten animal is susceptible. Now...if the bite was from an Australian Brown Snake...well you have Angels on all four corners of the calf....
