Dogs must be examined by a veterinarian before vaccination to ensure they receive the appropriate vaccine regimen. The annual rabies vaccine is required by law. Injections and vaccines do not provide complete protection until after 2 weeks. While encourage pet owners to ensure that their dogs are up to date with vaccination, specialists and veterinarians recommend that some vaccines every 2 or 3 years are necessary.
