Belvedere: Bitten by a snake, struggling to survive
Belvedere is only 6-7 weeks old and already he has experienced only pain. Found next to a snake in a field, puppy Belvedere is believed to have been bitten by the snake.
No owner reclaimed this puppy who was in dire need of medical care for several days now. He was in a rural kill shelter and Second Chance Rescue immediately went to get him and transport him to the emergency vet in life-threatening condition.
The immediate fear was that Belvedere's throat was closing up. His ears were swelling over and he was in major discomfort. We know that a potential snake bite could be fatal and time was of the essence.
Belvedere has been getting around the clock care. The vets are focusing on comfort and controlling the swelling. Within 24 hours of care, Belvedere is showing signs that he is feeling better and the swelling is starting to diminish.
But, he is not out of the woods yet. Belvedere will remain in critical care for a while and he needs your help today.
We have partnered with Second Chance Rescue to help raise the funds they need to save Belvedere. To help save this tiny baby please consider purchasing one of his shirts, totes, bracelets and coffee mugs below.
