|Immunizing you dog against rabies|
By the time your dog is 3-4 months of age. It's wise to follow the advice of your veterinarian in this areas. Depending upon which vaccine your vet uses, you will need new shots every one or three years.
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.
