Cats, dogs, and ferrets should receive their first rabies vaccination at the age of 3 months and their second vaccination at 1 year. Check with your veterinarian for the rabies vaccination schedule for your area. After the second vaccination, the need for revaccinating cats and dogs is determined by the type of vaccine used and the number of rabies cases in your area.
