This is exactly right. I have had two dogs bitten by rattle snakes over the years. One was in the 60's and he was just a ranch dog and he just had to get over it. Old timers said that if they were bitten on the head, they would survive. His head swelled up to the size of a basketball, and he had permanent scars. The 2nd was when I was in high school. She was an Australian, and it cost me the equivalent of 3 car payments to get her anti-venom shots on a Saturday. Her head still swelled up to baseball size and she was permanently scarred. Both were bitten on the nose. Wonder why?

Now all our dogs get rattle snake shots at the vet twice a year. HMMMMMMM!!!

RV has been sprayed for bugs. Just in case.
Boxers swelling is going down.
Shepherds back looks amazingly better.
I gave him a medicated bath. So if he has tree sap or geese crap or such on him it'll remove it.
But now I'm paranoid about the possibility of those darn snakes. Haha.

Sometimes if you stick your nose where it doesn't belong it gets bitten.

I once found a full grown bark scorpion crawling in the basement of my motorhome when I opened a door late one night. Another time I opened a door in the morning and a cat came flying out. Rule #1 - Never leave your basement doors open for any length of time.....

Another thing, if you suspect a snake or spider issue in your RV, you might want to double check everything you unpack....before it gets in the house.
