|Well, I was just wondering...
... Because, last time we got a young dog their rabies shot (Sakura) the vet we had refused to do it before six months. We expected this, anyway, as that's the way it's always been. We get their puppy shots then at six months, we get a rabies. And the shots that follow those ones depends on location and which canine viruses are severe in said location. (for instance- parvo goes around like the flu here and even being a day late for parvo shots could be deadly) Cinnamon, also, had her first rabies at six months. And, when my mom bred pomeranians- they, too, had their first rabies at... six months.
However, when we asked what Meepster and Precious would have to get at their next appointment; we heard rabies thrown in the bunch and all of us went like "Whaa...?" They'll only be about 3 1/2 months at their next appointment... so, that doesn't seem right.
They told us that it had changed and dogs are required to have a rabies shot at 3 months now. Still doesn't seem right. It seems a bit young. I mean, I have seen dogs that are five years old get miserable after their rabies shot. A 3 month old pup going through that? Uh uh. It doesn't seem right. However, I'm not sure if they changed it or not...
Does anyone here know?
And, what do you guys think? Is 3 months too young? Or should they be fine?
