I took my 7yr.old Sheltie to the Vet this morning to receive his yearly booster shots and to have him groomed. By mistake they also gave him a rabies shot. He had his yearly rabies shot July 3rd. 2012 is there any cause for worry. My Vet says no, 2nd. opinion please. Thanks in advance.
I'm a veterinarian on the faculty at Auburn.
No cause for worry.
The worse that could have happened is an immediate or anaphylactic allergic reaction from too frequent sensitization and you would have seen symptoms (breathing problems, diarrhea and vomiting, etc) within 20 minutes up to an hour or so after injection. maybe some skin wheals (urticaria) within the first few hours. Sounds like everything went okay and no cause for worry.
Most shots for dogs are either killed virus (3 years) with an adjuvant, or a 1 year shot (canary pox recombinant) either which will not transmit rabies to your pet but confers active immunity.
Thank You so much Doctor you have been a great help. You have made feel much better.
