    DefaultRabies shot

    My vet wants to do my pups rabies shot at 16 weeks. My daughters vet said her pup will get his shot when the baby canine teeth come out, at around 6 months.
    Is there a preferred age for the first rabies shot ? Thank's in advance for your answers.

    Frank.

    Either is OK. A lot will depend on where you live. Here, in east Texas, we have a serious problem with rabies in skunks. There have been numerous reports of skunks that were subsequently tested positive for rabies actually climbing into fences and attacking dogs. I wouldn't be comfortable waiting until my pup was 6 months old to protect him/her from this disease.

    I like to separate my rabies from the combos, etc by at least 3 wks.

    If rabies is a problem in your area, I would likely get it sooner but we've not had a reported case in years in mine, so I wait until 5-6 mos here. Anne
