  • Yes. I just got one of my cats a 3 year rabies vaccination today.

  • At this point we are pet free. But this is a vaccine free home, so no, IF we ever get a pet, we will not vaccinate beyond what is absolutely required by law...

  • No I don't, mine are always inside and I do not believe in them.

  • Yes. I have a mini pug named Star :) She also has to go in once every 3 months for check ups because she has a lot of breathing problems.

  • Yes, our dog park requires it. You can't get a pass if your pet isn't UTD.

  • yes. if he was to run off and be caught without vax records by the city they will put him to sleep.

  • Yes. The rabies shot is required yearly here, so my cats always get that one at their yearly checkup. As for the other vaccines, I don't always get those because my cats don't go outside and are never around any other cats. Additionally, my oldest cat is almost 15, so my vet doesn't recommend all vaccines for him.

  • We only do what is required by law, since we are a vax free family.

  • Nope, only when I have to board them. I think we over vax our pets and our children. My dog growing up got vaccinated like 2x in his life and he lived to be 15, super healthy, never had to take him to the vet except for a couple times towards the very end of his life.

  • I do. He has to be up to date in order to get him groomed.
