for dogs. Anyone using them yet? I heard about them on a hound forum, and got my pup the first of the 2 required shots today. Just wondering if anyone's had a dog get snakebit that has had the vaccine.

Nope, itís a scam, according to our vet.
When ours get bit by copperheads the area swells a bunch and thatís it.
They conserve their venom injections for Prey. It takes days for it to regenerate and they know it.
We and pets only get a few drops of venom from impact.
However, very young snakes do not know and are historically the ones we get larger venom doses from.
This is also taught in Biology and Herpetology classes.

I get my dogs vaccinated every year. Iíve got small terriers that are under 40lbs. My jagd terrier is just a touch over 20lbs. Two of my dogs got bit this summer on the face. They both had swelling but were 100% better within 5 hours or so.

Iím guessing since itís a rattlesnake vaccine it wonít work well for other snakes such as copperheads

My vet today, who I love, said that he really didn't understand how they could work, but that all the research and evidence show that they do. I've had several dogs bit since they moved here and all recovered without a vet, but I also know of people that lose hunting dogs to snakes every summer so.....

According to my vet, it does work well on all venomous snakes we have around here except for coral snakes.... including copperheads and cottonmouth. Thanks for the info on your dogs.

Angela ask yourself this. How many cattle dogs in Texas get bit by rattle snakes every year and how many cowboys or ranchers take them to a vet?


Unless it is in the eyeball or your dog is elderly or has a medical condition he will be fine. If it is in they eyeball WTH could a vet do anyway?

I used to get them when in rattle snake country, I guess itís worth the 30 bucks(15 bucks a shot x2 rounds) to me. Had a buddyís dog get nailed this summer and it had the vaccine and was fine the next day.
