    aww sorry to hear of your loss FS..

    I've not lost pets to snake bites, but as a little kid my family lost a 3 month GS puppy from rat bait poisoning, curious puppy had eaten a dead rat that had been baited, my stupid dad learnt the hard way about using rat bait instead of traps

    Even though tis is an old thread...yes, no dogs though 2 of mine killed one together but were not bitten I have lost one cat to snakebite, there have been a few unknown disappearances over the years that I attribute to snake bite and one cat who came through it with antiveneme.

    I lost a beautiful dog, Sally, to a snake bite. Unfortunately, it was while I was at work so it was too late to save her by the time I got her to the vet. My Pharaoh Hound killed 4 browns last summer. They were in the house yard.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    That is so sad. I live in the UK so luckily we dont have a snake problem. My brother has just emigrated to Oz with his staffy....I'll bet he hasn't even thought about the danders of snakes. Sorry to hear about you tragic loss.

    I have always trained my dogs not to attack reptiles (as I own them). This assures, even thought they'll run around barking at it, that they'll never actually get close enough to get bitten.

    It's quite upsetting losing pets to the animals that have every right to be there

    Our old dogs, in qld, would kill the snakes that came into the garden. I always live in fear of coming home to find they'd missed and been bitten themselves, but thankfully not.
    Then having moved from QLD to Vic. Our dog was bitten by? possibly a spider. Some neurotixin running around anyhow, he lost the use of his back legs, for about er 15 minutes, was panting, very pale gummed, pupils like saucers, and heart racing. Whilst im trying to get hubby to get us to the vet, he came good. LIke nothing wrong. Vet checked to be fine. Had that been a smaller breed of dog, he may not of survived.

    W lost our aussie bulldog Mack to a snake bite in feb this year. Its absolutly devestating, and I struggled emotionally with it, still do actually. My daughter asked why he wasnt moving when we went to the car to go to school, i never seen the snake at that stage I didnt see the red belly, that lucky he had killed as I would have stood in it!! We live in the suburbs but back onto the reserve, I found it hard getting over the fear of finding a snake and couldnt walk on grass for a week. I still get upset about it wondering if there is anything I could have done, unfortunatly we dont know what time it was, he was fine and playing at 7-8pm, we found him gone at 8:00 the next morning. Ironically there has been last time i heard around 7 AB's bitten by snakes in a period of a few weeks of when mack was bittten, and all but one had died, including a puppy that the vet couldnt save.
