Rabies Vaccine Issues

What You Must Learn About the Rabies Vaccine for Dogs

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.


  1. Thanks for the information.
    Here in Japan rabies eliminated some 40 years ago yet the law requires annual shot.

  2. Snickers hasn’t had any vaccinations – except Rabies because it is required by law every 3 years – since he was 1. (He’s almost 6.) Secret hasn’t had any since we adopted her almost 3 years ago.

    I also only give hw and flea/tick preventative every 6 weeks in the summer. I avoid antibiotics and drugs like rimadyl.
