Rabvac 3 Dosage And Administration

Dogs and Cats: Inject one dose (1 mL) subcutaneously or at one site in the thigh intramuscularly. Vaccinate dogs and cats 3 months of age or older with one dose. Revaccinate with a repeat dose one year later. Revaccinate both dogs and cats every 3 years.

The PEEL-OFF LABEL I.D. SYSTEM provides a simple and effective method of recording pertinent information on the vaccines administered to animals in a veterinary practice.

For vaccines requiring reconstitution, remove label from both vials and affix both labels to the animal’s medical chart.

Using the System:


Grasp the vial label at the corner marked with an indicator arrow, between your thumb and forefinger (figure 1).


Pull steadily at a slight angle until the label is separated from the vial (figure 2).


Place the label on the animal’s medical chart. Press down on the label to ensure adhesion.
