Pliers

Last season my dog came limping back from a retrieve and had a russian olive type thorn literally in the bottom and out the top of his upper paw around where the joint is and above the pads in the foot. Without a good multi tool we would still be out there... luckily the thorn and the wilderness first aid thorn removal didn't damage anything.


Wow.. no long term damage? That had to hurt.

I just got my dog her first dose of the rattler vaccine a few days ago, two total about 3-4 weeks apart. Hope we never have to find out how effective it is.

You guys realize they put tracking and mind control devices in those vaccines  :rolleyes: :chuckle:
In all seriousness I hope you all don't have to test how well they work. I think if I lived on the eastside I would give it to my dog. I had never heard of it before this thread. How did you dogs react to the vaccine? Have they been around long?  Cost?

I had never heard of a pre bite vaccine  before my vet said anything sounds like a good thing and yes hopefully never have to find out how effective it is

It sounded like my vet just started using it and was reasonably priced but may have been around a lot longer?

Only $39 a dose (x2) up front, then once a year after that. She seemed fine, no reactions to it.

Pack to carry out dog?

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.

Sorry I totally forgot to get her list...I will post it soon. Keep in mind that she isn't carrying all the gear that most hunters do but I will post nonetheless. Thanks for the info on the snake stuff. Unfortunately I rarely get to hunt that side of the mountains but I would get my dog the shot if I did. :tup:

If you hunt in the SE corner of the state, east of the blues, I'd definitely recommend the rattler vaccine, did it for our dogs.  I've encountered tons of rattlers out there, and my dog has stepped over them, saw it coming, but couldn't do nothing in time, that was a hold my breath moment!  There are plenty around tri cities too, if in the right place, so overall recommend it for anyone on the eastside hunting, better safe than sorry.  Maybe some throw up juice (Hydrogen peroxide?) in case they get into something bad, my dog attempted to eat some mushrooms before, not sure if poisonous or not, but don't want to find out.  Like the packout bag, going to have to get me one, dad had his dog get dehydrated in a january hunt in SD, had to carry the dog back to the rig, so good to have that, lesson learned!
