Dog Venom

A lot of people don't know this, but dogs are actually EXTREMELY venomous, but the venom isn't toxic to humans. It's very dangerous to other animals, though, this is why dogs are so well known for killing cats. Dogs are responsible for most cattle mutilations, less than a tenth of a milligram of dog venom can be lethal to a cow.

Some native cultures use dog venom as a medicine, but that's not recommended because like apple seeds, large amounts of dog venom can still be toxic to humans.

That's right. Dog venom is almost as bad as wolf venom. Of course, the dog food companies don't want people to know this, because everyone would freak out and get rid of their dog. That's why all dog food companies put a secret venom-reducing medicine in dog food.

If you get bit by a dog, the "rabies" shot that the doctor gives you is really anti-venom medicine. There is no such thing as rabies anymore, they just tell you it's for rabies so people won't find out about the venom.
