Was my puppy given a rabies shot too early? Dec 21, 2018

Hi Angelo,

I’m sorry to hear if something is wrong with your pup. I would encourage you to reach out to your veterinarian, or seek a second opinion, regarding vaccine protocols.  Most veterinarians utilize the American Animal Hospital Association vaccination guidelines and this seems early for a rabies vaccination.

Best of luck,

Dr. Ryan Llera
