I delayed it as long as possible...

...but today was rabies shot day for Olivia. She turns 6 months old tomorrow, and by law, she had to be vaccinated by 6 months, so we had that done this morning. She stayed with my mom the rest of the day while I was at work, just in case she had a reaction, but she was fine. I'm glad to have that behind us.

She did get lots of attention at the vet clinic in her Valentine's Day dress!

Charlie had his rabies shot this morning too. We are good for another 3 years.

Awwwww, sometimes they do have a reaction but really glad Olivia didn't have one. Mine never have either. Toby will be going next week for his 3 year rabies vaccine and probably his last one since he is 12 years old.......next one would be at age15. I hope he is still around but one never knows.

Poor baby but it had to be done, I guess. I've heard of law enforcement taking the dog even or huge fines for not having them

Hope you took pics of her in her Valentine's dress!

Emma had a reaction to a rabies shot so I was very cautious about the whole thing. She lost a giant patch of hair at the injection site, and then she ended up with a thyroid problem, which is not at all uncommon from vaccination, especially the rabies vaccine in toy breeds. (I've spent a lot of time reading up on Dr. Jean Dodds in the years since...good info for dog owners.)

I didn't take any pics! I was in such a hurry to get her dropped off at my mom's and get to work that I didn't even think of it.

Never had a problem with rabies shot if given by itself and not a combination of shots. I have had several puppies react to their first shots. I believe in doses of those shots per their size.

I'd never allow my pup to get a rabies shot in combination with anything else.

Have you a vet in your area thar cooperates with that idea? Most vets are of the mind set that "one size fits all."
