Another dead dog bitten by a coral snake.
A dog named Roxie died from a coral snake bite last week. Now, it's Buster. The Jack Russell Terrier died Tuesday, but he almost made it due to quick thinking of the Martin County Fire and Rescue.
Buster took his last breaths around 4:30 Tuesday afternoon. His vet believing the dog could make it out alive all because of a little bottle of antivenom. "Without antivenom, the chances of survival for a small dog like this are not good," he says.
This coral snake is believed to have caused all of the trouble. Biting Buster and leaving no mark due to its small mouth. "At 7 yesterday [Monday], he didn't even acknowledge that I came through the front door, and I knew something was wrong," recalls his owner.
