I need to find a close vaccine clinic.
It was $108 per dog today, that and some meds for Gretta made a bill of $379. Ick! I have a couple of other dogs that will need to be vaccinated this year.

|llombardo||I go to the vaccine clinics for my dogs and they never ask when the last vaccination was. I request the three year and that is what they give me. I have bend late in the past and they never started the whe process over.|

I live in AR and I know what they require.
All the law requires is that the initial vaccine by good for 1 year. So you can't get a 3 year certificate on a 4 month old pup.

I love Ohio. It's not on your list, so I did a little sniffing about:Dog Owner's Guide: Making Sparky legal: Ohio Dog laws
From, making Sparky legal, Ohio dog laws:
Ohio law does not require rabies vaccination of dogs unless they have bitten someone and no proof of rabies vaccination is available. Dog bites are reported to the health department, and the dog is placed under quarantine for 10 days. Following the quarantine period, the dog owner must show proof of rabies vaccination.
Health departments in each county can require that dogs be vaccinated against rabies. In October, the Hamilton County Board of Health adopted a resolution that requires rabies vaccination for all dogs and cats more than three months old. The animal must be given a booster vaccination one year later, but subsequent boosters can be up to three years later.
Veterinarians are required to provide rabies tags to the animal owner and to keep records of rabies vaccinations that can be made available to the health commissioner on request. Dog and cat owners are also required to provide a copy of a rabies vaccination certificate to the health department upon request.
If a pet bites a person or another animal and is suspected of being rabid, the health commissioner can allow the owner to keep his pet in strict quarantine for a minimum of six months. If the animal dies during the quarantine, the head must be made available for rabies testing. If the animal does not show signs of rabies, it must be vaccinate at least a month before the end of the quarantine.
Animals must wear their tags; those that are found off their owner's property without a tag can be impounded.
I've looked it up previously in the Ohio Revised Code and individual counties can require it or not.

I was able to get a 3 year as well and I was 4 months late. Lol I'm not complaining about it
ETA oops this was about my post anyway. But yeah, here they're not too strict. From what I know though they take your dog for 6 months if it lapses so my state still sucks

Your guess would be wrong.
Just the first ones I came across:
this is for Arkansas
"Initial vaccination for dogs and cats at 4 months and older. Revaccinations during the twelfth (12) month after initial vaccination.
Thereafter, the interval between revaccinations should conform to the
Compendium of Animal Rabies"
"Dogs and cats 3 months of age or older. Animals vaccinated prior to one year of age must receive a booster vaccination one year after the initial
vaccination. Animals shall then be vaccinated every 3 years thereafter"
Some states are super strict others give exceptions but it varies not only by state but also by local ordinances.

I am not lucky. My vet does 3-year after the dog has that first booster. They want the dog to come back 12 months after the first rabies to get another rabies, then they go to 3 years. It has nothing to do with the law. In Ohio, rabies is dependent on the county, as to whether it is required. And if it is, it must be administered by a veterinarian.
Also when a dog is picked up stray, it is given vaccinations. These are not 1-year vaccinations. They are 3-year vaccinations if the dog is not a puppy. Vaccinations are the same, doesn't matter 1-year or 3-year, but they want to boost the shot given when the dog is 4-6 months old, 12 months later. A dog that is already 2 years or above will just get shots and they will be good for 3 years.
