    Hi, guys just asking about the article I have read about the long-term effect of rabies vaccine on our dog. It said that the rabies vaccine can be used for a single 1-year booster and can protect our pet from being infected (rabid) for at least 5-7 years.
    It also said that yearly vaccination for rabies can cause mild to severe disease like cancer in dogs but rabies vaccine, most of the county is recommended by law to be given yearly. What do you think?

    In the UK it's only needed if taking a dog abroad, and it is once every three years - that said depending on what status the UK is given after 31 December, a fresh booster plus titre test may be needed, even if your dog is still in his three year period.
