Dear Homeward Bound: Does my dog need shots?

Dear Homeward Bound,
I have a friend at school who does not get shots at the doctor’s office like I do. It made me wonder if my dog needs shots because I know he hates it as much as I do! I want him to be healthy but I don’t want him to be scared, either. Does he need shots?
Dear Curious,
There is lots of information out there about shots, also known as vaccines, and your veterinarian is the best person to talk to about what is right for your pet. There is one vaccine, though, that is required by the law and that is the rabies vaccine. You definitely want to make sure your pet always has a current rabies vaccine.
Every year vets and people in the community come together to offer rabies clinics where your pet can get his or her vaccine. They are usually held in March, so keep your eyes out for information in your local paper or call your town offices.
