How Often Do Dogs Need Rabies Shots?

Answer

As a puppy, they should be vaccinated against rabies at around 4 months of age then again around 1 year. Getting dogs vaccinated is a requirement by the law in every state. The state requires rabies shot for dogs every 3 years. Once a dog has been vaccinated twice, the shot should often last 5 to7 years although not according to the law. The Rabies Challenge Fund is working to prove that the shots give 5 to 7 years of immunity.

The length of time that a rabies shot lasts depends on the type. Some veterinarians give vaccines that are good for three years while others continue to use the one year vaccines.
