Rattlesnake Vaccine

by Heather on April 1, 2015

Spring is here, beautiful weather and gorgeous flowers. The warmer weather entices all types of wildlife to roam and graze. Another species that becomes more active with warm temperatures are snakes. Most do not realize that snakes are not out to purposely harm anyone, however they do become afraid and many will bite. One of these types are rattlesnakes. In recent years, rattlesnakes in the Central Texas Region have become less audible and do not always hiss or rattle to alert one in harms way, thus making it very important for humans to be aware of their surroundings at all times. While pets do not always know to refrain from snakes, there are precautions that could assist in a potentially deadly situation. Canines and Equines do have a vaccination available to them that can prolong the effects of a rattlesnake bite. It is still VERY important to take your pet to your local vet immediately, however the vaccine can help the process in aiding your pet back to good health. Please view the link below to read more about the vaccine and the types of snake bites it supports……
