    can you define the term “challenge” used in table 1? Thank you!

  2. Eb says:

    Hi Maggi, challenge would mean testing the virus on an immunized animal (cat or dog) to see if the antibodies from prior immunization block the replication of the virus. Serology would mean measuring blood antibody levels.

    Is the rabies vaccine legally required in BC?

    • Eb says:

      Hi Leanne,
      It is not legally required in BC. It is in Ontario and if you are crossing the border into the USA, you’ll be required to certify that your pet has been vaccinated for rabies.

    Rabies vaccine has not been required for dogs entering the USA from Canada since Jan. 2019. CDC has updated requirements on their website.

    • Eb says:

      That is great! We went to check and dogs coming from Canada no longer need rabies certification. Just an oral statement that “the dogs lived in a country with low or no risk for at least 6 months or since birth.” Thank you for the update.

    How long should you wait until you introduce your puppy to other dogs? After first vaccine or later?

    • Eb says:

      Hi Artur, we’d recommend that you introduce your dog after the 2nd set of shots. This is because you would typically titer to see if the dog has antibodies after the 2nd set of shots. This approach is a balance between being prudent about your dog’s health and ensuring that your dog is socialized and you don’t have behavioural problems.
