Great article by Fiddleback Forge...never too early to teach them to survive
There will always be challenges to not living within a well populated area. It has been an interesting 48 hours up on our mountain with 48 to go before we know if our youngest member will survive.
Sunday morning our neighbor reached out to me that she was on her way to the emergency vet, an hour out of town. Her 14 year old golden had woke up bleeding profusely from one of her ears and it would not stop. I was the back up to take care of the 3 year old cat that we affectionately call the puppy kitty because he plays with all the dogs as well as the other cat up here.
Turns out she had a tumor that burst and Monday she went to her regular vet to be set up for early Tuesday surgery. By the time all is said and done and we get her home last night about 6, her owner calls me and she is on the way back to the emergency vet. This time the cat has a bite on his foot and is screaming in pain. Turns out a copperhead bite will do that. She spends the night in Blueridge because the ER vet closes at 7am and there is no one to take care of the cat. So at 630 the cat comes back to the Hiawassee vet to be taken care of for the day and then back to the ER vet after they close because they have no one there at night to monitor him. Snake venom has about a 72 hour period that it can suddenly turn deadly to the cat and most vets wont give anti venom to a cat unless it becomes necessary because it also can prove fatal.
So even if you decide to go just a little out of the way and not actually “off grid”, make sure you know how to protect the animals you can and how to treat those that do get critically ill.
