    the dog took it fairly well- didn't like them drawing blood, but there were concerns of kidney damage...
    wife was hysterical- she didn't even want the dog, now she can't stand to think about losing her!

    Our pit drinks when we are in it playing. We have an AG pool so no access unless we are on deck with here. We just lost another dog to a copperhead memorial weekend,she was a small Jack Russel and the wife was hysterical. Terrible situation.

    The pit has to pee alot after pool time,usually in the middle of the night.

    So sorry about your dog. It's funny, just this evening we were talking about dogs and snakebites. I have a 7 year old golden retriever and two 7 week old golden retriever puppies, all three female. Although WV has plenty of snakes, only two are poisonous -- copperhead and rattlesnake -- fortunately, we rarely see any around here.

    Ooooo! I'm new here and clueless, but here is a question to which I can actually make a contribution.

    We've had a saltwater pool for the past 6-ish years. We have a mini schnauzer, that like your dog, prefers to drink from the pool. In the summer, he jumps down onto the first step and drinks away. During the winter, he runs out onto the cover and his body weight is usually enough to make some water flush up on top of the cover.

    I specifically asked our vet if it him drinking the salty, chlorinated water was a problem. He said no problem at all. Which is good to know, because i'm pretty sure it would be IMPOSSIBLE to make him stop!
