Our cat was bit by a rattle snake on Monday evening on the rear leg. She was hospitalized & given anti-venom, steriods, fluids, & antibiotics. She is recovering, but the vet told me this morning that 10-12 days later cats can die suddenly from the bite. Can you explain more about this possibility?
Infection from the bite wound can cause extensive necrosis and sloughing. This takes time. This is probably what your vet is talking about. vetcrae
