This article was just shared by a facebook friend of mine:
A dog in florida contracted rabies because he wasn't given a rabies vaccine for SEVEN years. Two other dogs in the house had to be PTS because they had NEVER been vaccinated.
If you don't want to over vaccinate, then get the 3 year rabies and when your dog is an adult don't get Bord/DHLPP/etc unless it is required by your boarding facility or organizations you belong to (therapy orgs require vaccines). If your vet doesn't give the 3 year vaccine go to a vet that does, and get the vaccine ever 3 years as required by law. Can't afford vaccines? Go to a low cost clinic!
I only give Rabies and DHLPP to my dogs and both are 3 year vaccines, we get them done by a low cost vet an hour away because it's very cheap and worth the drive.
So sad that this was so easily prevented!!
