Saturday-Patty bitten by very toxic Mohave rattler. We immediately treated with Jernigan Neuro Antitox and a little dexate (4 mg.). Several hours later, she is running around looking for more snakes to kill. Mohaves are often deadly-10 to 30 times as toxic as other rattlers. We credit Jernigan Neuro Antitox. It is now 2 days later, and she is fine. She was definitely bitten and it was definitely a mohave rattler. We have given her a total of 10 droppers over 46 hours time. Total cost of remedy ~ $3.00.

The following  was our first experience with using this Lyme detox remedy on a snakebite, in 2008: Jovita (burro)  is Serena’s seven year old daughter. She developed inflammatory disease set off by a snake bite. She was ill for > 2 years with brain fog and stiffness.We tried many holistic remedies and finally found one which worked magic. (Jernigan Neuro Antitox).

Update     June 2016

We successfully treated 3 more snake bitten dogs and a tiny rabbit since this was posted. All were swollen, so not “dry” bites.

On the night of June 8, Rambeau, our small Barbados sheep was bitten in the face by a rattler. When I found him in the morning, his face and throat were very swollen. I had seen a diamondback the night before, but it scooted under the feed shed. Sheep are very sensitive to snake venom. We gave him 2cc of dexamethasone, 2cc of long acting penicillin & started Jernigan Neuro Antitox right away. Once again, no tissue necrosis. He was under the weather for a day, but that was all.

We had more photos to go with these statements but lost a lot of our pictures due to a website glitch. We will try to find and post them again in the near future.

    Excellent post. I was checking constantly this weblog and I’m inspired! Very helpful information specially the closing part 🙂 I take care of such information much. I used to be seeking this certain information for a very long time. Thanks and best of luck.

  5. Kathy Mills says:

    Great news! I have property in Eastern KY. Copperheads and rattlesnakes are a problem in some areas. I was going to talk with the vet and fix an emergency kit just in case. Thanks so much for the article.

  6. Cathy Ritlaw says:

    Good! Our vet lets us have dexamethasone.. I give an injection of that & long acting penicillin and get started giving the Jernigan Neuro Antitox every hour or so at first. Good luck!

  7. Kate Dircksen says:

    Precisely what is the most important snake, I want to learn for homework?

  8. Cathy Ritlaw says:

    It depends on what you are looking for. The snake that bit Patty is the one you want to AVOID the most in these parts, very toxic & dangerous.

    I was moving to an area where there are many snakes, scorpions, centipedes and other biting critters. I had researched and found your post about Patty and the Mohave rattler. I ordered the Neuro-Antitox Basic then and had it on hand. This morning I needed it. I do not know what my little rat terrier was bitten by but she went outside in the dark fine one minutes and the next she was stumbling and could not walk. I was torn between trying to get her to an emergency clinic but I am at least an hour from any or starting her on the Neuro-Antitox. I decided on that. I gave her a half a dropper full every hour for 4 hours. She is walking, wagging her tail and eating now. I am still watching her but she sure seems fine and the vets are open now just in case. Thank you for your post. You might have saved her life.

  13. Mary Tilden says:

    Thank you Cathy. I want to order that to have on hand. Glad your babies are okay.
    Lonely here now without Rob. Miss him so much but he is a rest now no more pain or suffering. God be with him & you & your Critters.

  14. Cathy Ritlaw says:

    Hi. Mary. Bill just told me about Rob. I am so very sorry for your loss. Holler if I can do anything. Love you, Cathy

  15. Pamela says:

    Which of the Neuro-Antitox did you use? The Basic?, Cardio?, CNS/PNS?, or Musculo-Skeletal? Also…was it the Ethanol formula or the Apple Cider Vinegar formula?

  16. Cathy Ritlaw says:

    they are all the same herbal base, but “tweaked” to target different tissues. I always used CNS/PNS, but think all would work. I use alcohol remediesm, as I think the ACV work more in the gut and alcohol goes more to tissue
