This story was released from PHYS.org and I received it from my professional association PSI. It is very exciting.
"A new study by Kansas State University veterinary diagnosticians finds that pets with out-of-date rabies vaccinations are very unlikely to develop the fatal disease if given a rabies booster immediately after exposure to the virus."
What this means is that potentially hundreds of dogs lives can be saved.
In the past, if a dog was exposed to the rabies virus and its rabies shot was found to be out-of-date, there were 2 options: The first was a 6 month quarantine at a potential cost to the owner of between $5000-$7000.
