Q. My dog bite on a electric cord and got shocked. There is no vet open at this time. This happen a few hours ago.what do I do for her.

A. If there is an emergency vet nearby then I would contact them. Otherwise monitor your dog and try to monitor the heart rate. We would be looking for arrhythmias (unusual or not regular heart beat) this would be an indicator that the shock may have potentially caused a problem.
