We have been successfully using the  dog vaccine for several years now, the equine version has just been released.  The vaccine DOES NOT eliminate the need for veterinary care if your animal is bitten or even eliminate the risk of death. It does allow the animals own immune system to begin fighting the venom immediately and therefore hopefully  at least decrease the reaction to the venom.
 
Dogs need an initial 2 vaccine series and then at least annual boosters. High risk dogs should receive boosters every 6 months.
 
Horses(llamas and alpacas) should receive an initial 3 vaccine series then annual boosters. HOWEVER, due to low demand we are no longer stocking the large animal vaccine but can special order it.
