Rattlesnake Vaccine Opinions

3418 12
We are coming up on rattlesnake season in California, so I'm considering getting my horses the rattlesnake vaccine when the vet visits next month.

We have given our dogs this vaccine for a couple of years. A near by neighbor's dog was bit last year and they feel the vaccine saved their dogs life by making the bite less severe.

Does anyone have any thoughts or experience with this type of vaccination for horses?

Thanks!

I was going to ask this very question! Isn't there an anti venom you can carry/keep JIC?
Ewww. Totally scary, these and a few others have met their demise around here!

Smrobs, what did the vet do for the bitten horses?
I'm going to talk to mine about it, just curious what yours did to compare notes.
