Tractor supply has a vet come there once a month. I got my Catahoula the snake vaccine. It takes 4 shots spread out over a year. Cheaper than paying a office visit at the vet.

The first time your dog gets the shot, a follow up booster should be given 1 month later.
Most of us are good to go, and only do a yearly after that.

If your dog could come in contact with rattlers year round, they recommend getting follow ups every 4-6 months.



Shopping with your husband is like hunting with the game warden.
Experience is what you get, when you didn't get what you wanted.

That sounds like you're over vaccinating. Intial shot with a follow up booster a month later, then a yearly follow up.

How long does protection last? How often should my dog be vaccinated?
Our research indicates that the maximum protection generated by vaccination with this product typically becomes available about four to six weeks after the most recent vaccine booster dose. That protection then declines slowly over time. On average, vaccinated dogs receive good protection for about six months after boostering. Depending on the dog, some protection may continue out to a year or longer.

The first time your dog is vaccinated, we recommend an initial vaccine injection followed by a booster dose about one month later. We recommend then boostering each subsequent year.

Typically, boostering would involve a single dose at the start of the rattlesnake season in your area. However, there are circumstances such as your dog’s anticipated exposure to rattlesnakes or the size of your dog where, in consultation with your veterinarian, you may wish to booster your dog with this product two or even three times per year.

Most dogs exposed to rattlesnakes for less than six months per year will only require a single booster dose for that year. The best time to give that dose is approximately one month before the start of the rattlesnake season. This category includes dogs that live in the northern half of the United States or dogs who briefly visit locations where rattlesnakes may be active—such as during a camping or hunting trip.

However, if your dog will be in an area where rattlesnakes are active for more than six months per year (roughly the southern half of the United States) you and your veterinarian may wish to consider administering two annual booster doses four to six months apart. Again, the first booster dose should be given one month before the rattlesnake season begins. The second dose should be given approximately half-way through the season.

If your dog is at particular risk of being bitten by a rattlesnake (for example, a search and rescue dog, some hunting dogs or dogs living in a high density rattlesnake area where rattlesnakes are active year-round), you and your veterinarian may wish to consider using three booster doses per year at four-month intervals.

Since resistance to venom depends upon the amount of venom-neutralizing antibody available, small dogs (under 25 pounds) are at increased risk of envenomation injury. Because of this, a third dose in the initial sequence, and in subsequent years more frequent boosters (i.e., every four to six months), may be advisable in small dogs to maximize their antibody production for more protection.

Alternatively, a percentage of large dogs (over 100 pounds) may not develop as high an antibody level as intermediate-sized dogs in response to the two-dose initial sequence. For this reason, there is some evidence that large dogs may also benefit from a third dose in the initial sequence, although they do not necessarily require additional annual booster doses to maintain that antibody level.

As mentioned above, the use of additional vaccine doses to provide extra protection for your dog should be decided in consultation with your veterinarian.
