Wanted to share about this because it was new to me... you can get a rattlesnake vaccine series (two in a series, has to be redone annually).  It does not protect fully against a rattlesnake bite but it does make is to that in the event of a bite you have longer to get them for treatment.  There are definitely rattlers where we hike so I just had both of mine complete the series.  Better safe than sorry.

Hi Laura, 

 We live in rattler country. We get the shots and rattler avoidance training for our Bella who is out on trail almost every day. ( its funny we have seen so few) I just hope I could carry her out if she needed it, I guess the adrenaline would help!

There are some old threads I made on this subject. 

Thanks!
