 Will my dog get sick?

I live in Albuquerque, NM and my house is infested with centipedes. I donít know anything about them but the one I saw last night was about 3.5 inches long and scary! I have a 45 lb dog and I wanted to know if he could get sick or die from a centipede sting? If so, how sick? Thank you so much for your help!

 Will my dog get sick?

i donít believe i have ever read that dogs are particularily susceptible to native USA centipede venoms, for whatever that is worth.

i myself have been bitten by something like 13-15 species and they are not that big of a deal for me.

that is a list of all the like, formally described species of "giant" centipedes found in New Mexico. i donít visit this forum very often, so if you want more help from me search cacoseraph on google and you can find my contact info. as far as i know, i am the only cacoseraph out there :)
