A 1.5-year-old German shepherd male dog was brought to the emergency critical care unit of Sindh Agriculture University Tandojam-Pakistan clinics with a history of snakebite on the nose two days ago. The dog appeared dull and depressed during the clinical examination. The dogs were examined clinically and physically, and they were treated right away.
