If you hike our trails with your dogs, you might consider having your veterinarian immunize your dog(s) with Rattlesnake vaccine. The vaccine will not protect your dog from the rattlesnake venom, but If your dog is bitten, you will have extra time to get help for your dog. Please check with your vet for details.
