This is three days AB. Sam, Lucas' much older brother, seemed delighted that Lucas was scaled back for a little while.
The swelling continued to go down for a couple of more days and the wound got bigger. The vet told me this was normal and as the dead flesh fell off Lucas would heal.
The above photo is the wound six days AB
This is what it looked like when I got home today. One Week AB. The swelling is nearly all gone. I cut away the dead flesh that was hanging around and cleaned out all the surface trash from the wound.
Here is what the vet gave me. Note I got Lucas to the vet in under two hours.
Solu Delta Cortef Steroid injection
And gave me 40 Amoxicillian capsules
And 20 Prednisone tablets.
The snake was small, only two feet long and Lucas weighs one oh seven. That helped.
I'll update this as needed.
