Indications and Usage
Antidote 3 Rattler Antivenin is shown to be effective against envenomation in canine and equine due to North American Crotalidae. Crotalidae refers to the Crotalinae subfamily (commonly named ‘Pit Vipers’) and includes cottonmouths/water moccasins, copperheads and rattlesnakes. Antidote 3 Rattler Antivenin includes antibodies against, among other Crotalidae, Mohave Rattlesnake Type A which is often considered to be the most lethal rattlesnake due to the presence of highly debilitating neurotoxin A, also known as ‘The Mohave Toxin’. Use of Antidote 3 Rattler Antivenin within 24 hours of snakebite neutralizes venom, decreases swelling, minimizes pain and decreases temperature of canine and equine patients.
