    Great stuff, thanks. If anyone is looking for anti-venom for dog snake bite just google "Summerland serums". If you live in a highly populated area for snake {like me} you may find it useful.

    huacnic is posting real posts, he's putting effort into the post, and then those links are coming in with it.

    If your dog eats rat bait, take it straight to the vet. I nearly lost my 12 month old ACD bout 6 weeks ago from it. When we got him to the vet down in the Perth ( we live 2 hours from Perth) he only had an hour to live. It costed so over 3 grand to fix him, but he is worth it.

    Hi Peta23, that must have been quite a worry for you, glad all is well and your boy survived. Did you take him to Murdoch, we found them fantastic there but yes very expensive.

    Cheers

    We are lucky now in that we have a mobile vet who we can call any time of the day or night. Our girl that we had before Misty got cancer so we spent a lot of time down at Murdoch for treatment and check ups, a very costly excercise but as you say, worth it.

    Cheers

    The tip on that site about vitamin C is correct, I have used it several times, twice it saved the dogs life, the once it failed it did bring the dog out of the coma I found her in, but she crashed and died some twelve hours later as they often will if the bite was from a brown snake, with others snakes it is often enough on it's own to save a dog, our vets use it and have even used it to save horses.

    One small dog it saved here was unconscious eyes glazed and awful colour and I am sure that without the 10ml of injectable vitamin C I shot into him that he would have died, he recovered fully with no further treatment needed.

    We and many other bush people keep a bottle in our fridge with a large syringe always handy, we still lose dogs due to not seeing them in time, but it can and does save many lives out here.

    You need to use plenty of it, 10 to 15ml at least even for a small dog and you could double that for a giant breed.
