Abstract

CONCEICAO, L. G. et al. Anaphylatic reaction after Crotalus envenomation treatment in a dog: case report. J. Venom. Anim. Toxins incl. Trop. Dis [online]. 2007, vol.13, n.2, pp.549-557. ISSN 1678-9199.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S1678-91992007000200012.

Crotalus envenomation is the second most frequent condition caused by venomous snakes attacking dogs and cats in Brazil. Affected animals show severe neurological and muscular involvement, lower motor neuron signs and myalgia due to extensive rabdomiolysis. The present case report is about Crotalus envenomation in a dog which showed severe clinical and laboratory abnormalities. After treatment with antivenom (specific antidote) and clinical support, the dog totally recovered from that condition.

Keywords : Crotalus; dogs; snake bites; therapeutics; anaphylaxis.
