Is your Vet precautious, or just ripping you off?

Fox 9 News in Minneapolis, MN went undercover to investigate the claim that some veterinary clinics are vaccinating pets too often.

Jeff Baillon reports on what can happen to your dog if you listen to your vet and vaccinate for rabies every two years, instead of the vaccine’s intended 1 or 3 year dose. The doctors claim they do this because of the pet owners inability to make appointments on time. However, the risk of vaccinating every two years could outweigh the risk of not vaccinating for, some say, up to five years.
