Rabies Vaccine Okay for Dog on Chemo?

Pet Cancer Vet (05-15-2017) #2065: Is it okay for a dog on chemotherapy to get a rabies vaccination (required by law)? Dr. Sue gives the answer to Maureen, whose Scottish Terrier was diagnosed with TCC (bladder cancer is common in this breed) and been on chemotherapy for past nine months. Dr. Sue’s advice to others with Scotties is to do an abdominal ultrasound very quickly if there are any symptoms. Best practice is to do routine ultrasound on Scotties because early detection gives you the best shot at combating it. Get a baseline at age five and by age six get one twice a year.
