I saw my first snake yesterday, basking in the sun on the bush land i walk on with Bernie, a 11 month old GSD.
Our garden is also bush like, and we get them at home too.
Is there a way to train the dog not to go near the snake?
Before Bernie, we had a rottie and a GSD, they would take out snakes and id find the remains.
As black anti venom is used for the king browns around here, can i ask the vet for a shot to take bush walking? As we go for hours, and he'd be dead by the time i got to a vet. Im a nurse, not a vetinary nurse. But wondered if you could have this, like my mum has a shot she carries for bee stings as she goes into anaphylaxis.
Ive made myself fully aware of the fist aid for snake bite, but seriously, it would take over 3 hrs to get to a vet. That's means, he's unlikely to survive.
I dont want to lose my dog to a snake bite.
