not in rattlesnake country but not they are not unheard off Not really good for what we have on the east coast. Rattlesnake Vaccines Frequently Asked Questions | Red Rock Biologics

from what i read I would be hard press to use it. 6months protection and then it only lessons symptoms not full protection. I would be more inclined to go with snake aversion training and yes it does use punishment but IMHO it is one of the justified uses of punishment to protect the life of the dog,

My uncle had his dog put through he training. They told him the dog was probably too young. Sure enough he went right up to one upon completion. But thank you I will see whats available in my area.

I'm in Florda and I have never heard of it. We have our share of Rattlesnakes down here. It's an interesting topic.
