Your vet works for you, not the other way around. If you don't want him to get his rabies vaccination on a particular date, just tell them. They can't give the vaccination without your permission. If they insist, just pickup your puppy and leave.I am not sure at this time, but I really do not want to get his next on the 15th of march because they are going to do rabies with it.
I prefer to wait until at least 6 months and the rabies vaccination should be given alone, not in conjunction with any other vaccination. Your pup should be in perfect health at the time of vaccination also.At what age do most dogs get their rabies shot? He will be a little over four months.
Its usually given NO earlier than 4 months, but waiting until 6 months is just fine. It is your dog, so tell your vet that you wish to wait with the rabies vaccine until 6 months of age. I say once all the puppy boosters are done you wont need to get him vaccinated again, at all. Tell your vet that you are not planning on vaccinating him again so as to not continue to receive reminders from them about it. If your vet has an issue with this, tell them that you will take your business elsewhere. Simple as that.Danemama,

We do this too, but our bordatella is intra-nasal.Rabies is usually given on the right hip (right for rabies) and distemper is the left hip. Bordatella is given usually between the shoulder blades or on the neck. This is just what we do, but not sure if its universal...but I think it is.
