Well you know if it had of been vaccinated it would still be alive, but it would probably be aggressive from all that vaccinosis so it's probably for the best.

This is a good reason to vaccinate your horses every yr. Why would your horse become agressive because it has gotten vaccines? Thats really ridiculous sounding...

Definitely - I think you don't need to go crazy with revaccination but we average about 160 confirmed cases a year in SC.

About 400 a year confirmed in NC, with racoons being the primary vector.

Thats exactly why I can't understand the folks that don't vaccinate their dogs/cat/horses for rabies. It is everywhere.. Feral cats are also very common carriers. You know, the barn cat that shows up, acts all skittish and weird, might stick around for a few days, then suddenly disappears........ Oh, it must have gone back home someone says.... The bigger possibility is it had rabies and died.
Rabies is deadly... We most likely will die from it....... To me not worth the risk of unvaccinated dogs/cats/horses being outside and getting one little nip from a skunk, raccoon, cat, etc.
From one who has had rabies shots both as treatment and preventative.

IT is a rough shot so I agree with the rabies challenge fund approach of determing length of time but in the meanwhile do give every three years.

I have the preventive, too, when I worked at the vet school but that was in the seventies. THAT was painful but I think only because they must have hit a space between muscles and I could feel it running down my arm.
