|"If your state and juristiction allows, you can actually vaccinate against rabies at home. Just make sure to purchased good quality vaccines. You will want to shake the vaccine bottle before administering it. You will only need a one millimeter syringe. The vaccine should be injected subcutaneously (under the skin). Just make sure to keep your dog at home and to keep an eye on him, just in case there is a reaction to the vaccine."
The reason most areas DO NOT accept owner vaccinations against Rabies is that there are MANY reactions to this vaccine and I don't know too many owners who have epinepherine and lasix and access to oxygen should anaphalatic shock happen. Without it, your dog can easily be dead before you can transport him to the vet for treatment. Not something I am willing to fool around with and I live right next door to my veterinarians clinic.
