Whether your dog or cat will receive a rabies vaccination that is “good” for one year or three years is determined by a few things:
Animals are first vaccinated for rabies between 4 and 6 months of age. They need a booster one year from that date. They are then vaccinated every three years if the veterinarian uses a vaccination that is labeled for three-years. However, please note that some veterinarians carry rabies vaccines that are labeled for only one-year duration. At DAS, we use the rabies vaccines that are labeled for three-years. If we are late for the one-year booster or the three-year booster, then the next rabies vaccine received will only be good for one year.
