I'm wondering whether or not some states will 'accept' titers on Rabies. I think we had someone that was traveling from Canada to US, and the phone conversation was that they had to have the 'paper work' associated with the vaccine. I'm too scared not to vaccinate by pups. I just wish IL would accept titers.

I know my state, Pennsylvania, does not accept titres on rabies, but I know you can get a medical exclusion that is very strict. I think you have to get it renewed every, single year.

There are exemption laws on this site:

I do believe in vax for babies as both my twins have been vaccinated. Midgie was vaccinated as a pup. But I really don't believe she needs them at this stage of life. What's driving my fear about this whole situation is if something were to happen and they came and took my Midgie away and euthanized her for not being vaccinated. That's really all I'm worried about because her contact with people and other animals is minimal. I don't take her to dog parks or nothing like that although were going camping soon.

This reminded me of something. I am in Canada. And one of our provinces here - Quebec - just passed legislation that says dogs (and all animals) are sentient beings. Before they were just considered property. But now they are considered sentient/living beings. ((yeah, I know you are all saying "good grief! They needed a law to see that!'"))That means there are now VERY stiff rules with respect to animal treatment, abuse and euthanasia.

I was so happy to see this law passed. It's definitely a precedent that I sincerely hope other provinces pass as well and then hopefully it will filter into the USA as well.

I usually do the rabies vaccination, but no distemper. Here is why I do the rabies: I was bitten by a large dog when I was little. It was a farm dog with no rabies vaccination, and it was a bad bite. If my parents had wanted to, I believe they could have forced the neighbors to have the dog euthanized (and me being so little, I don't actually know what ended up happening). If I were out somewhere, and some kid shoved their hand at Beverly, I don't think she would bite but you never know. At least if she did I could show she had been vaccinated. The thought of this scenario scares me to death.

Where I live they quarantine a dog who is not current on vaccines for a period of time. They would not euthanize the dog.

When I was a kid I watched our Dachshund bite a kid. The kid was tormenting the dog and the dog, rightfully, bit him. Our dog was put in quarantine for two weeks.

The state of TN isn' exempt. Tina (Lulu) was telling me that even exempt dogs can suffer severe consquences. Here's how it was put to me: Let's just say a bat flew into my house and bit me and I needed medical attention. Without any reason, they could come and take Midgie and would put her to sleep without question because she doesn't have the rabies vaccine and even tho she's exempt. So it sounds like a no-win situation any way you look at it. I still think I'll take my chances and not vaccinate.

I know what you mean. When people and/or kids come up wanting to pet her, I say no as she can be unpredictable.
