Hi,

Welcome to Healthcare magic forum,.

Its mandatory to take atleast 3 doses of antirabies vaccination even if dog is already vaccinated, prevention is always better than cure, but in case of rabies there is no cure, my sincere advise please dont waste time, along with antirabies u have to antitetanus injection also.

Hope I have answered ur question.

Regards
