THis is not true,there was a study on this sometime ago,and an actual vet states alot of those shots are more harmful your pet,he also says most of them they dont need,he said the rabies vaccination will be good for 5 years,not one year as vets try to tell you,hek he says it says it right on the bottle,plain as day,so I don believe that,look it up on the net,type in does my pet really need shots,and u will see for yourself.......

Each state decides by law how long they are going to make a rabies vaccine valid. In some states, such as Colorado, rabies vaccines are only valid for 2 years. Each vaccine company conducts studies to determine how long a rabies vaccine is effective in your pet and they create an average of their findings to give recommendations to the state. It is not your veterinarians decision to vaccinate or not vaccinate your pet for rabies OR how long the vaccine is valid. They don't arbitrarily decide how often to vaccinate your pet so they can scam you. The state tells your veterinarian how often they should vaccinate for rabies.
If the county you live in finds thant you have failed to vaccinate your pet, you will be fined and taken to court ad then you get to pay your fine and court costs. While over-vaccination is definitely harmful, so is being fined several hundred dollars for stupidity. Get your pets vaccinated.
