Has your Cat been vaccinated for rabies?

If so when was the last vaccination?

What symptoms is your cat showing?

Can you tell me what makes you suspect a problem?

she was vaccinated 4 years ago. She's not showing any signs that I know of . I just wanted to know since she went past her 3 yr. shot

You should have no problems with the cat getting Rabies. They do build a titer over the years and being a little late on the vaccine will not let the cat get rabies. It is a virus and your cat would have to be exposed to to an animal that is carrying the virus and be bitten to have the cat exposed. I would however have the vaccine done to be in compliance with the law. Joan
