Labradoodle vs Diamondback

An 11-month old Labradoodle in Arizona jumped between a western diamondback and his owner (and another dog), receiving several bites, though the owner was unaware of that at first. Sheriff's deputies were called and removed the snake. The dog exhibited symptoms later, but expensive emergency treatment wasn't an option, so the owner tried to make the dog comfortable. After making it through the night, some western remedy was applied (DSMO to reduce swelling), and the dog eventually recovered. (News source.)
