Rattlesnake season is closely approaching. Did you know that there is a vaccination to protect your dog from the bite of the Western Diamondback Rattlesnake? There is and it works extremely well! The vaccine helps your dog to generate protective antibodies against rattlesnake venom. These protective antibodies start neutralizing venom immediately. This means that vaccinated dogs experience less pain and have a reduced risk of permanent injury from rattlesnake bite! Rattlesnake bites are still an emergency and your dog should be seen immediately, even if he or she is vaccinated but we have had dogs that have been vaccinated and have been bit and they had much less severe reactions to the bites.
During this March, we are offering $10 off your dog’s very first rattlesnake vaccination. So if your dog has never been vaccinated with the rattlesnake vaccination before, you will receive $10 off his or her first vaccination. To find out more or to schedule an appointment, call our office at 928-757-7979. If you would like to know more about the rattlesnake vaccination, you can read all about it on Red Rock Biologics’ website.
