Rattlesnake Vaccine?

do any of you guys get your dogs this vaccine? We've already had 4 dogs bitten this summer so far... 1 died and not so sure a second one bit Friday is gonna live or not. If any of you guys get your dogs vaccinated for this, is it effective or do you know and what is the cost of this. I have a young dog carrying the mail right now and dont want to ruin this pup with a snake bite or lose him to one. I may have to quit pushing him so hard but that wouldn't be doing him just.

Sorry to hear about your dogs...

A few things yo can do to help...with the shock collar on high (to make a statement)...

Find and kill a rattlesnake...refrigerate if needed to keep it fresh...

Make sure dog is secure in kennel or is tied up...Put shock collar on dog...have dogs see and smell snake...

Have snake touch dog a few times while you have snake in your control...shock dog each time snake touches him...skip a day and do it again...repeat after a few more days...

Youíll know itís working if dogs is acting like he saw or smelled a snake...

In the woods if he smells or sees one he will give it space...

I recently started one of mine on it. It is a two shot series and then an annual booster. Not sure if it is effective or not, but we have a lot of them here in north Texas. It cost $15 per shot at my vet....figured it was a small price to pay if it works.

Tim what vet are you using? I might give the shots to mine. They get cottonmouth bit pretty regularly but get over them in 2 or 3 days on their own. Rattle snakes are a different story and Iíve got plenty of those too.
