Warm weather in the Austin, Texas, area is bringing out rattlesnakes, putting pets at increased risk for bites. A local veterinarian advises owners to have their pets vaccinated for rattlesnake bites, but warns that the vaccine is not foolproof. "It is still recommended that you see a veterinarian. You may still need anti-venom; we don't want to get a false sense of security," he said.
