Kinda like chewing tobacco will kill worms in horses. My dad gave our horses a handful of chewing tobacco every couple of months. They never had worms when the vet checked them.
It is usually used plugs that I know people used to deworm dogs.

You will have to do some research.

I have read the same about tasers/stunguns. Apparently the electric current breaks down the venom.
I doubt that a brief electric current will be destroying venom. I will not say that it does not work and I am doubtful that it does. It is controversial with the medical community saying it does not cure.

What all is involved in keeping antivenom in stock? How quickly does it expire? I imagine it would be difficult throwing away and replacing a very expensive something that expires every few months.

Okefenokee Joe used to have a dog named Swampy... until one day when Swampy "forgot" to be swamp-wise...

Every now and again... I lose a cat... can't teach them to leave the reptiles alone...

But... that's no reason to destroy God's creatures...

Raccoons come to my house... kill my chickens... so... those, I kill... when they come into my garden... If they stay outside the garden fence... They are safe.

When the cats find a rattlesnake... and I'm there... I gather them up and make them stop harassing the snake... but if I'm not there... evolution at work.

In my area is a 24 hour emergency vet ER and I wonder if they keep antivenom on hand.

Beau was doing much better the next day, while it took Buster almost a week to get back on his feet. The Monday after the bite Buster was taken back to the vet for another round of shots.

Here we are three weeks after the incident and both dogs are back to normal.

Kev mostly likely a copper head this time of year , my hounds and I spend lots of time in the woods at night , in 42 years I have only had 3 dogs bit in the woods , my Curly dog has been bit twice in 9 years both times in his pen by Copper heads . I take the collar off the dog 3 cc 's combiotic or LA 200 once a day for 3 days and Benadryll once a day for 3 days as well seems to work every time the dogs size , age and overall health make a huge difference in recovery times as well. S/FI! buddy.

I somehow missed this thread when it started!

Anyway Iíve had pretty good results teaching my dogs about snakes using nonpoisonous snakes as training aids!

In just a few minutes theyíll learn what a snake can and canít do and learn to stay out of reach!

Once they go round and round with a snake a few times they tend to stay back a few feet and bark like mad at them! I encourage this behavior of course and reward them with lots of praise when they get it right!
