I just don't do it. Period. There is plenty of current research out there (it's actually making news right now) about the fact that dogs are highly over-vaccinated - especially for rabies. In fact, it has been shown that the efficacy rate for the rabies vaccine is around 7 years. If that is the case then shouldn't a dog only be vaccinated twice in their lifetime instead of every year?
I am a non-vaxer who has done my research. I don't vaccinate my kids and I'm not vaccinating my dog, either.
But anyway....this is not a vax thread but a nail thread......back to our topic at hand.
