A few years back our dog got hypothermia on a very cold snowshoe hike. He got so sick he couldnít walk and could barely hold himself up. We were a good 3 miles from the car. We had purchased on of these: https://fidoprotection.com/ years earlier on a whim and we had it with us so I was able to wrap him in my insulation layers and carry him out. Once we dropped a bunch of elevation and got into the timber he perked up a bit and was able to start slowly walking again which warmed him up enough to get to the car but it was a scary little hour or so. Iím more careful now about where and when we take him places now but also have the carrier in my backpack whenever heís with me. Like anything though make sure you practice with it first

The final rise upland pack has a built in dog pack out deal.

On my list for next year...they can be a game/life changer. My sister runs an HRD dog in Oregon...I will have her send me her complete list and post. All the suggestions have been great...packing a kit for my dog is similar to what I pack for my human kids...my dog is like another child in my opinion... I don't mind the extra weight to make sure I am ready to save her life :tup:

Did you get the list from her??  I would love to see it.  This would be a pretty good thread to pin.  I do carry a first aid kit, but wondered if I had the right items in it.

On the rattlesnake vaccine.  Over a decade now.  At first my Vet said he only saw TWO dogs that were vaccinated.  One looked like he NEVER met the snake.  The other looked like he NEVER met the vaccine.

These days, his opinion is do it. $30 for the initial shot, plus a follow up in six months.  Then $30 a year.

Cheap insurance.

My girlfriend's vet recommended getting the rattlesnake vaccine for her dog while she lived in Texas for a few months. I will be getting it for my dog for sure for hunting the banks of the Columbia. $30 is cheap for something like that for how prevalent snakes are!

I asked my vet about the rattlesnake vaccine, we had 3 pups and the mama get bit last year.  He said the vaccine only buys you a few hours, you still have to get the antidote, even if they are vaccinated.

How old do the pups need to be before getting the snake bite shots?
