Q. My dog was bit by a snake his neck swelled,weeks went by he was fine back to his normal self and a month later he lost weight and nose has bled.

A. Please have your dog seen by a veterinarian. The snake bite could've caused organ damage or problems with your dog's ability to clot his blood. This may be why he is having a nose bleed and weight loss. Blood work will be able to show any underlying disease, which your veterinarian can then treat accordingly.
