As everyone knows, vaccinating your pet is the responsible thing to do each year as part of your pet's annual check-up. What you may not be aware of is that you may be able to have your pet vaccinated every 3 years for rabies rather than every year. Your vet would be able to tell you whether the law permits the 3 year rabies vaccine to be given to pets in your area.
One other interesting point is that immunity provided by some vaccines lasts for much longer than one year. A great way to find out if your pet is still protected by a particular vaccine is to ask your vet to do a titer. Titers are tests that measure the level of antibodies in the blood and indicate whether immunity still exists.
