Testimonial: Blessed Clay just saved our dog! - Sunny
 

Ping was bitten by a brown recluse Oct. 6. Here is a 13 day progression of our experience with it. Hopefully Ping's experience can help other pups.

On Day 1, I noticed his shoulder was a little wet and sticky. I thought it was a abrasion he got walking by a cactus.

On Day 2, it was a little worse. There are many brown recluses in my living area and woodsy yard. If you know anything about their bites, they can have horrible, terribly painful outcomes.

Though it occurred to me, I did not allow myself to even entertain the idea of it being a brown recluse bite. I did not treat it with clay those first two days. (What was I thinking????) - Sunny

10/8/10 Day 3, the morning I grew concerned. I made a vet appointment immediately.

 

Day 3 late afternoon. Note rapid progression of damage. Ping was concerned.

 

10/8/10 Day 3 5:00 PM. Just after vet visit. Vet said brown recluse bite. Her technician cleaned and shaved the area.
We were given antibiotics for infection, but nothing for the the terrible enzymatic venom designed to eat a hole in the flesh.
 
Day 4 Morning 10/9. Antibiotics begun AM & PM for infection.
Began treatment with green calcium bentonite clay for the venom treatment and pain / itch relief. The clay was pressed into area the night before, and in the morning.
Ping did not appear to be in pain or itch. This was amazing because great suffering is usually associated with the brown recluse bite.

The dry scaliness seen here is either necrotic skin or a scab. At this point, I did not know if there would be a big hole underneath it when it fell off.

Oct 18, 2010 Scab fell off the night before. There was no wound underneath, only healing pink skin!

Oct. 20 it looked great.

NO PICTURES FOR THESE DATES:

Oct. 21, I see what appears to be the small fang/bite entry. It has reddened into a dot and the immediate spot around it also reddened. That's some venom there. I pressed the clay powder into it.

Oct 22, I see the fang mark still and will put more clay on it.

It is important to be thorough and pull out the venom.
