It is unseasonably warm and snakes and bears are out. Saw a family of three black bears two am when the dogs in the kennel were raising cane.
She'll be OK. Just gets nasty looking before it's over.
No, it was Vicky's dam.

Toxicity of copper head bite would be determined by age of recipient, location of envenomation and how complete the envenomation. Here are pictures from two and a half yrs ago of a five week old daughter of the above snake bite victim, and sequence of recovery.
The evening of envenomation after trip to the vet:
The next morning after puppy was bitten... Envenomation was above right eye ;
two days after snake bite, swelling drained alot down to throat and lower neck;
two weeks later:
Three months after snake bite:
obedience session fourteen months after snake bite...some muscle above her eye sloughed with skin:

It's been very warm, so snakes come out.
Last winter, after a very heavy rain, a copperhead was up in my dogs' area next to the house trying to get out of standing water. It was full grown, big around as my wrist.
She'll be fine. One of my females( the great grand dam of the pup in the pics) got bitten on her tongue and part of her tongue sloughed, creating a slott that her lower k9 protruded through when she panted. She killed that snake.
Here's a pic of the bite today... The center where fluid is pooled, when dry I can see is a very deep hole going into the muscle.
