Are you a robot? the dog is not hurt I am trying to find out about shots

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. OK. No obvious pain. What is the dog's name?

To answer you directly, regardless of when a previous rabies vaccine was given, the next can be one approved for 3 year protection. I don't understand "...if within 1 yr-2 weeks?"

Please clarify.

Just to recap-my dogs had rabies shot on March 17, 2017. I wanted them to get the 3 yr Rabies tomorrow and they are saying it can only be a 1 yr because it is more than 1 yr since the last.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

Thank you. You're being told nonsense. Please consider another vet or vaccine clinic who will give your dog a 3 year vaccine. Please continue our conversation if you wish.

That's what I thought! I am a Pediatrician and I would think rules are similar with regard to vaccinations in children and pets!
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

You're correct, Dr. Why they would make up something so wrong and easily researched is beyond me. You may receive an inappropriate follow-up from the site ostensibly sent by me. It wasn't and I apologize in advance should you receive it.
