Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Tamara, you need to find an ER open now. Derringer may not survive until morning if this was a bite from a venomous snake. If you will tell me what city and state you're in, I'll get to work finding a place nearest you.
