Canine Rabies 1 year & 3 years – COST $22.00

Rabies is usually transmitted by bite wounds, often from infected wildlife, which represent the larges reservoir of the disease in the U.S. Vaccines are very effective in preventing rabies. Most states in the U.S. require rabies vaccination of dogs at 1 to 3-year intervals.
Rattlesnake Vaccine – COST $22.00
Any dog over four months of age that is exposed to rattlesnakes whether at home, camping, hiking, etc, might be a good candidate for rattlesnake vaccine.
Rattlesnake bites are about 25 times more fatal in dogs that in humans.
How does this vaccine work? The vaccine has been reported to both delay the effects and reduce the severity of rattlesnake bites and help dogs survive and recover more quickly with less pain and swelling.
How often should a dog get booster vaccinations? A dog should get at least two doses about 30 days apart in the initial vaccination sequence. If the dog is exposed to rattlesnakes about six months per year, he will only need one booster per year about 30 days before the beginning of that exposure season.
