(b) When rabies vaccine is administered by a licensed veterinarian to a dog or cat, the dog or cat shall be re‑vaccinated one year later and every three years thereafter, if a rabies vaccine licensed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as a three‑year vaccine is used. Annual re‑vaccination shall be required for all rabies vaccine used other than the U.S. Department of Agriculture three‑year vaccine.
