Hiking in canyons? Brush areas? Camping this Spring or Summer?
You definitely want to keep your outdoor dog vaccinated. But you might want to also consider the Red Rock rattlesnake vaccine. It just might save your dogs life.
Rattlesnake antivenom is very costly. Managing an animal clinic for years, I have seen the costs. The ongoing treatments, hospitalization, and a few times the loss of a beloved pet due to rattlesnake bite.
California has them! And I know you’ve seen them or heard about them.
Red Rock wont prevent bites, nor will it prevent treatment from bites. You would still need to see a veterinarian for sure.
But it should keep the cost down and most important…. save your pets life.
Its worth looking into.
Ask your veterinarian.
