Usual vets here in the Philippines advices not to bathe a pup after vaccination.

What will happen if my american akita (3.5 month old)got drizzled by the rain? He had vaccination 3 days ago. I toweled him to dry him off. Although he was not fully wet. Anyone?

It probably is a concern for Water Quality, and the puncture wound.
After 3 days it has healed/sealed well enough to go ahead and bathe.

A drizzle is not deep as a bath, so don't be too concerned. Ask your vet when you are allowed to bathe again, and make sure your shampoo is gentle and/or vet recommended. Feel better Klara! ^_^ (She looks like a lab- Akitas are Japanese).
