Thank you so much for posting the article. So, what are we to do?

You can't get a rabies tag without the vaccine. I did a titer on Dexter last year, he had sufficient antibodies, but no tag...so therefore, if I am caught at the dog park without an updated rabies tag, I pay a fine.

Guess I need to find my proof for sufficient antibodies on Dexter's rabies vaccine.

Linda, rabies is the exception to this. It's the only one that is governed by local rules. They've got us by the ----- on this one. But any other vacs we have a choice. That's up to us. I don't want to tell you what I do because everyone has to make their own choices. Some of which can definitely be influenced by geographics. Some lobbying is being done so that titer test can be used to get a certificate for rabies. Hopefully , coming to a theatre near you soon.

So much of what is sold to us by our vets is just not state of the art practice. It is discouraging. Many of the vet schools have Hills Science Diet sponsorship and from the time the vets leave school, they recommend and are compensated for selling that junk food...then there is the neuter/spay issue...don't get me started on that...off soapbox..

I am scared to death, Tillie has her rabies vaccine scheduled for Wednesday... She is going to the same holistic vet that did all of her allergy testing, but I am still really nervous. I talked with them and she DID say that they are VERY well aware of vaccine reactions especially in small dogs and that they DO measure out the dose according to the dogs weight, so she will get a dose for an 8 lb dog instead of the "normal" one dose fits all. I will be SURE to remind them of this when we go in. I also plan on hangin around the office for awhile to make sure she doesn't have any reactions.
It will be good for a 3 yr rabies tag... sigh...

It wasn't the Rabies I was talking about...I just checked Dexter's tags. Rabies tag is good till 2012. It must of been something else I did a Titer on....now, I need to figure out what the vaccine was they wanted to give Dexter last year, because I am sure they will want to give Jack a vaccine next year.

Is the Rabies vaccine the only vaccine that is required?
