I know this has been discussed here before. In fact, four or five years ago I did my own research and discussed it with my vet. Didn't do it then, but am considering it with my 1 year old DD before we get into quail season. I'm also planning on attending the snake avoidance training with Wal this Sunday morning and plan to ask questions there.

So, what does the THF brain trust say about the vaccine? A lot of what I have read seems to indicate that the data is shake at best on whether it's effective.

I had a Labrador hit on the nose after having the shot. She swelled up a bit. We went ahead and took her to the vet. He asked if she had the shot and we told him yes. He gave her some fluids and Benadryl. We picked her up later that afternoon. The swelling had moved down to her chest area. By the next day we couldn't even tell she had been bit. I'm a believer.

I get it. I don't have hunting dogs, but I've got a couple collies that go with me to the lease every weekend and like to run around like crazy. I hope to never find out if it works or not but I've got it should they get bit.

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.
