|You shouldn't believe everything you read from us.....but if the info comes from a source like the American Animal Hospital Association, then it's "from the horses mouth"
Link to AAHA site on Vaccine protocols.
(click on PDF file in first paragraph or this one...)
I personally do major vaccines (Distemper, Parvo, Adenovirus, Parainfluenza) on the same 3 yr schedule as Rabies. I do go in twice in the spring for Lyme & Kennel Cough, and then Leptospirosis, separately.
There is no reason for the Vet to refuse to give 3 year rabies vaccine and certificate. Insist he follow Proper Veteranary protocol in the nicest way you can.
Sorry I don't agree with your husband. You must always question Doctors, they don't know everything even if they went to school. You can tell him that comes straight from MY HUSBAND - THE DOCTOR.
And financially - if you pay $30 every year for the rabies shot at the local Vet - how much more does the other Vet charge for the shot every 3 years? - $90? NOT! So your cheap Vet is costing MORE - not less.
BTW, my hubbie has learned in 16 years of marriage, that Mom trumps the Doctor - I'm always right. If I say the kids need the Dr., they do, if I say not - they don't!
