I am fortunate to live an area were we have few spiders that have venom potent enough to be dangerous to humans, however, my yard seems to support a significant spider population of various species, so I am wondering if I need to be worried or not.
To clarify a bit, obviously weight (of the dog) is going to have a major influence on this so I want to try to avoid that part of the conversation. I'm more concerned about physiology.
Is the physiology of dogs similar enough to humans that the impact of a spiders venom would be the same in dogs as it is in humans? Or would the venom from a spider affect a dog differently than a human?
