    Where to get Antivenom

    I'm planning on getting some hots in the future and would like to know where you can buy Antivenom. I'm aware that's It's illegal to administer it yourself.

    Idk if you can buy it, but im pretty sure it has a shelf life. Find out the species you want, and see what hospitals around you carry it, that would be the first thing I would do if was to ever plan on getting a hot

    My plan is to stock it and bring it to the Hospital with me in case they don't have any. I've talked to a few venomous keepers who do that, but none of them would tell me where to get any exotic antivenom.

    Depends on what species you are keeping.

    Antivenin is not cheap. And it's not cheap to have it administered either.

    It also has a finite shelf life.

    Saudi Arabia is one of the leading producer of many anti venoms. I have been told that you can buy direct from them or at least you could once, now... You also know that there is a shortage world wide currently? (read Saudi...) That will drive the price up quite a lot, I was told that it was many thousands a dose but I have no proof of that just a conversation.
