They have a vaccination for rattlesnakes out now. The wife got her redbone one. Didn't make it no smarter though she still went out and got bit shortly after. She did survive but not sure what it was.


�Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves. � � Winston Churchill

I gave my outside dogs thats, but I was told you have to give a booster every year and that however has not been done. Weenie dog lives inside 95% of the time for obvious reasons so he has never got it. i would say he probably wont be poking his head in bushes anymore, but lets be real hes a wiener dog training is not there thing. But they are cool tough little hunting dogs.

Anyone ever hear of using a spark plug hooked to a car engine and placing that on the bite area while the engine is running? My friends down south swear by it as the eV shock destroys the tissue of the bite area before it gets too far into the bloodstream............... the mike

I have heard of that also.
No eastern diamondbacks in that neck of the woods, but there are timber rattlers. I grew up at Pawnee City and there are some in the area.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

Yep timbers and massaugas on our corner here but pretty rare got to be area that didn't see much spray over the years. The rocky pastuers around Southern corner that weren't tillable have best chance of seeing one. Got a few Osage copperheads around here and south, too. All mostly prairie rattlers west and north parts of state.


Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Right here in Faribault. No idea what tagged him. Was last summer. He was swelled up almost as bad as the above pic of the brown one.

I would bet bees or hornets. I have seen our weaner get stung by ground hornets and swell worse than that.

Nobody heard of the spark plug on the bite area? My friends from SC carry a 10' long plug wire with them and lay it on the snakebite for a second or two after they immobilize (tie) the dog's legs....... the mike

Back to normal like nothing happened, didnt keep him out of the bushes at all either. Cold coming here tonight should run snakes to dens fairly quick as its supposed to stay under freezing at nights from here on out. Thanks for all the support, my kids really liked reading the comments about there dog and someone they dont know caring about him.

Really glad it was not my son, but feel really bad for our weenier dog, hes 11 and a pretty tough ol sucker though has held his weight with some overmatched competition before. Hes still doing okay right now, time will tell. Snake lost to the 20 guage, dont screw with my dogs even the little ones. Dont mind snakes, but I really dislike rattle snakes!!!!!


Bite to the face is not usually lethal. Bite to the feet is far worse. Vets say it is far easier for the venom to enter the blood steam from a leg or especially the paws.
Sounds like he'll make it and the face is the best place for them to get poked. Venom stays in place far better and is soaked into the surrounding tissue with less into the overall blood stream.

Good luck!
Blessings,
