Rabies update in MA

Just had a very interesting conversation with my vet today. MA has recently changed the Rabies vax law, and as long as your dog has received ONE Rabies vaccine, even if you miss the one year anniversary date from that first one, the dog can be boostered with the 3 year vaccine, and not have to do the one year again. Great news, as I know several people who have mistakenly missed the due date by just a day or two, and had to vaccinate a THIRD time one year later as a result. Not a problem anymore.
We've still got a LONG way to go on Rabies vaccines (like accepting titers, as they do for dogs in other countries, and for humans here in the U.S.!) but at least this is a step in the right direction!
