What an awful experience for all of you!!
You are wise to insist that shots be given separately from here on out. The rabies shots are nasty things, in my opinion, even though they are mandated by law. I've read a lot about rabies shots as McKenna had reactions to hers and from what I've learned the rabies shots should be given about 3 weeks after or before any other shot. One reason for that is that if there is a reaction you'll know which shot caused it. My vet tried to tell me that McKenna's reaction was from her puppy shot and I listened to him but later (unfortunately for McKenna) was able to prove it was the rabies. She gets a waiver from any more rabies shots. Sedona, on the other hand, has had no reaction to any shot but I'll still be certain she gets only one shot at a time, assuming she'll ever need any more since I plan to have her titered.
