On 5/31/2017 our vet administered a shot of Nobivac (3 year)

Customer Question
On 5/31/2017 our vet...

On 5/31/2017 our vet administered a shot of Nobivac (3 year) rabies vaccination then today 7/31/2017 they gave him a shot of Zoetis (3 year) rabies vaccination. Obviously an oversight. I'm wondering if he will have side effects from this error.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What sort of animal are we talking about?

He is a 143 lb dog - sorry kind of important data point

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?

He got two different rabies shots within 60 of each other

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the dog seem to hurt?

Pearl - you are a machine...

Veterinarian's Assistant: Yes, I'm a bot. I make the process of talking to the vet more efficient and affordable by asking basic questions. Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?

No

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. Nothing visually obvious. Is the dog eating normally?

Yes - he just got the second shot a half hour ago

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No appetite problems. Is the dog having trouble peeing or pooing?

No

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious problems there. How is the dog behaving differently?

He's not and I hope he wont

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Mogul

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Mogul?

7 years old

Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? Has Mogul had any vaccine reactions in the past?

Okay thanks for the additional information. As long as Mogul hasn't had any sensitivity to vaccines in the past, is it less likely that he will experience any side effects from the error. It can be common for dogs that are rescued to get rabies vaccines close together because of unknown history. Also sometimes some foreign countries require giving rabies vaccines 2 months apart before entering their country and I haven't seen issues or side effects with that. Typical if there was an issue you would probably see it withing 24 hours.
