VACCINATING YOUR DOG AGAINST SNAKEBITES
RED ROCK BIOLOGIES
Should you vaccinate against snake bites?
How does this affect avoidance training?
Snake bite vaccines are a very good idea for your dog.
Keep in mind this is a preventative measure, not to be confused with anti-venin which is used AFTER a snake bite.
Vaccinating your dog against a rattlesnakebite helps reduce the damage, and increases the likelihood of a dog surviving a snake bite. It also reduces the cost of treatment substantially should your dog be bittten.
ALWAYS KEEP IN MIND THAT EVEN IF YOUR DOG HAS BEEN VACCINATED, A BITE FROM A SNAKE IS A LIFE THREATENING EMERGENCY.
You should also snake proof (through aversion conditioning) as well as vaccinate your dog.
Ironically, your dog is more likely to be bitten by a snake, than get rabies.
