A year ago, Tierce got the rabies shot that immediately preceded his first allergic reaction. Now he is still in his cone (much better now, thanks to the Atopica) and recovering much more slowly than the last attack. We’re not taking him off medication again.
The above link has some interesting information about the rabies vaccine. I’m generally not a fan of red/black/white websites with a lot of exclamation marks, but I think that this one has a lot of useful information. As always, consult with your vet before taking any steps for or against vaccination.
I am not planning to ever go beyond the puppy shots and maybe a booster shot for my next dogs. I’m not planning on blindly giving my dog medication I don’t know about either.
