If you think your dog is having a reaction to a rabies shot you need to call your Vet and get your dog back to the ,so he can determine if it is a reaction, there are things the Vet can do and the next time the Vet will give you something before hand and use a Vaccine from a different source. It is important to do your core vaccines...later titers can be used except for rabies....Rabies shots are required by law...there are a few states that have compassionate release, California is one but you need a Vet to document the reason, a slight reaction with no medical care is not a reason, usually it is a severe reaction, auto-immune illiness, or frail health in a elderly dog, also us must agree to keep the dog confined to your house so your dog poses no danger to others.
I have stopped giving vaccines to my 15 yr old Lhasa this year, I am still giving Rabies as Boo Boo will catch opossiums (I know he is blind...but they are smelly) and we have wildlife and bats. I lived in India and Hong Kong...I have see what Rabies can do first hand...it is a painful horrible death for both animals and humans.
