At Alamogordo Animal Hospital, we are here to assist your pet with a rattlesnake vaccine in the case of an emergency.
You may have heard of a dog getting bitten by a rattlesnake. This is extremely dangerous. The only chance of survival is a vaccine. Here at Rattlesnake Vaccine, we specialize in assisting your animal with a rattlesnake vaccine.
The vaccine will stimulate the dog’s body to create its own antibodies to rattlesnake venom, protecting them from this bite and any that happen in the future. The vaccine is made up of antivenin, which are antibodies that are made from another animal. This vaccine can save your pet’s life if he or she gets it after a bite.
Rattlesnake bites are extremely painful and result in tissue swelling and impaired blood clotting and can even lead to death. There are no alternatives to this vaccine, so it is important to call if you believe your dog may have been bitten.
When you are hiking with your dog, make sure that you stay on open paths because rattlesnakes enjoy the country. You will also want your dog to stay on leash and stay away from grassy areas where a rattlesnake may be.
