Hi all. I have a 3 1/2 year old chi, and starting with his first rabies vaccine, the injection site gets infected. I notice it, about a month later, as a little fluid pack builds up, and gets bigger and bigger until the vet has to lance it, and then he puts him on double antibiotics. I don't know what to do. My 2 smallest dogs (he's the smallest) go potty indoors on wee-wee pads, and don't go outside much at all. If I do take him out, he is in my hands at all times. At this point, I am very inclined to simply not give him the rabies vaccines at all. He gets it subcutaneous, and I realize there is one they can administer IM, however, he is so tiny, that an IM shot would really cause him pain for several days. (I fostered a little one like him a few years ago, and the IM vaccine caused him so much pain). Also, here in Florida, the 3 year rabies vaccines is not recognized, nor used. At least here in Central Florida. Anyone have any ideas? I just hate to see him go through this year after year after year, as the infection usually is not gone for sometime; usually around 3-4 months.
