Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Nobivac Rabies Injection, including answers from our team.
My dog is vaccinated with nobivac rabies. And was bitten by the stray dog during the time of vaccination period. So will it protect my dog from rabies if the stray have got it?
Onset of immunity for this injection in the form of an adequate serological response (≥ 0.5 IU) has been demonstrated 2 to 3 weeks after vaccination. This means if your dog was bitten at least 3 weeks after the injection then they should have good protection against rabies. If before this period then your dog may be at risk. I suggest going to see a vet regardless, bite wounds are best looked at as they may need treating.
Is this vaccine ok for cats and how long does it last for?
Yes this vaccine is licensed for use in both dogs and cats. Onset of immunity has been demonstrated 2 to 3 weeks after vaccination. Duration of immunity is 3 years after vaccination.
It is a prescription only medication so you will need a written prescription from your vet to purchase it from us. You should seek their advice for doseage and whether it is appropriate to be prescribed for your pet.
My dog was given a 3year vaccine which lasted until 31/01/21. We are taking him for his booster today. We want to take him and our younger dog overseas (we are moving house) but have been told by our vet that, because of a day and a half gap, we will have to wait a full 21 days until we travel. Is this correct?
The answer to your question greatly depends on the country you are taking your dog to. I strongly recommend closely following your vet's advice on this as they will be aware of the regulations for your country's border. These can change, for example they have changed post BREXIT for EU travel.
We had both our dogs vaccinated in 2019 with a three year dose. Our Vet at the time said, if we came back 12 months after the original dose, for a booster injection this would increase the cover period to 5 years. The vet has left the practice and nobody can give us a definitive answer.
According to the data sheet for the Nobivac Rabies vaccination immunity lasts 3 years if the vaccine was given when your dog was at least 12 weeks of age. If your dog has had the Nobivac Rabies vaccination then I would follow this guidance and have a booster done every 3 years.
How old should a puppy be to berabies vaccinated? How long afterwards do we have to wait before we can take the puppy to France?
Your puppy must be 3 months of age before the vaccine is given. You then have to wait 21 full days after that before you can travel. There are some other requirements, such as a microchip and a pet passport, but they are normally done by the vet at the same time the vaccine is given. Then before you come back from France, a vet needs to give a tapeworm treatment. Sounds complicated but the system works well in fact.
