Vaccinations for rabies are required by law. Rabies can be fatal and can be passed on to humans. You can find your particular state’s requirements here: http://www.rabiesaware.org/
You have to be in adherence to your state laws. I think there are some provisions in some states for titering in place of a rabies booster vaccine for very small animals. But - purely based on what I’ve heard - there’s quite a lot of hoops to jump through and then they deny it anyway.
If your state allows, you can vaccinate for rabies every 3 years which is what I do. If Moose is a small animal (under 8 lbs), discuss and agree with where the shot location will be with your vet.
Almost a different subject: There are “core” vaccines that include parvo and distemper. These are diseases that can be fatal to young puppies who are shedding their mother’s immunity. The vet will administer a set schedule to puppies that are under 6 months old. Dr. Jean Dodd’s protocol is an excellent acceptable schedule that was recently updated last year for minimally vaccinating young dogs. http://bannerckcs.com/Files/vaccination%20protocol.pdf
Some other useful information regarding the “core” vaccines and what to consider when administering vaccines. https://www.aaha.org/pet_owner/aaha_...uidelines.aspx
For the “cores”, I have my animals titered on an annual basis at Dr. Ron Schultz’ office at the University of Wisconsin. http://www.vetmed.wisc.edu/lab/cavid...sting-service/
My vet does the blood draw (about $20) and I mail it to the University of Wisconsin. Dr Schultz’ office sends a report back to me and directly to my vet.
As a couple of reference data points, my pets are 9 and 3 years old. The youngest has just gone through his first round of titers last year and has acceptable levels of antibodies. My 9 year old has had acceptable levels every time I have had her titered and has had no follow up vaccines since she turned 2.
