Immunizing Your Dog
When?
By the time your dog is 3 to 4 months of age. It is wise to follow the advice of your veterinarian in this area. Depending upon which vaccine your vet used, you will need new shots every 1 or 3 years.
Where?
By a veterinarian who is associated with a registered veterinary facility.
Why?
The answer to this is simple. Rabies can be contracted by any warm blooded animal, including man. It is almost always fatal. Rabies immunization helps to prevent contraction of the disease. Rabies is normally transferred through a bite or scratch. This can only occur when animals are together, so it is safer to keep your dog confined.
