In Spring and Fall, the snakes are very active in Texas. They like to hide under Rocks and old wood and around water. My broth­er Ranger and I like to play at the water and sniff around those big rocks… Mama always sais not to, but we do it any­way …

Last year Ranger got bit by a snake and then he hid­ed under the bed and cried 🙁


Here is what Mama did: 
Clean the area and put 1 to 2 drops of either Basil or Tea Tree Oil on the wound to disinfect it.
Repeat this every 2 hours until you can get to the vet.
DON’T PUT ICE ON IT!

Go to the vet as soon as you can — Snake bites are very painful and some snakes are poi­so­nous.

Keep calm: Mama keeps her­self and us calm, by putting a lit­tle laven­der on her wrists. She also shares it with us! Pet­ting us behind the ears with it.
We need that, because none of us like going to the vet. Sor­ry Doc, noth­ing per­son­al!

After you’ve seen Doc, you can use 1 to 2 drops Frank­in­cense and/or Helichry­sum twice a day to speed up heal­ing of the wound.

Poor Ranger did’t want to play for 2 days and his nose was swollen. But soon he was as good as new again and we were back at the lake play­ing — but don’t tell Mama!!!!
