|Yes, I’m just starting to realize that things I believed were fairly cut and dry and in fact anything but! I have no heard of either of the people you mentioned. I believe that the rabies vaccine lasts much longer than three years, though. My dogs are given their rabies vaccines every three years. Your vet must have reasoning for wanting to give the vaccine more often. What state do you live in?
All my dogs have been licensed at the humane society. They are required to be licensed at 16 weeks of age or within 30 days of acquiring the dog (if the dog is older). If I fail to register my dogs, the city sends a citation and I must pay a fine. I will use Jocelyn as an example for the vaccination schedule I follow. Jocelyn was vaccinated for Parvovirus at 5 weeks old by her breeder, and then given a combination vaccine (adenovirus, hepatitis, distemper, Parainfluenza, and Parvo) and Coronavirus vaccine at 6 weeks. At 12 weeks I had her vaccinated for rabies, given a combination vaccine, Leptospirosis, Lyme, and Coronavirus. She gets a yearly combination vaccine, Leptospirosis, Coronavirus, and Lyme. She gets her rabies every three years.
