Beggar vs Chooser
I suspected this all along.
Your state may offer rabies vaccine waivers. A “get out of jail free card” if your dog or cat is not in full health.
If that waiver sounds easy or good to you, read on. It is surprisingly neither.
This post, like most, was prompted by a reader. She went jousting with the waiver bureaucracy in her state. Sherry relates,
Sent a carefully and comprehensively assembled packet out in January; called to check progress, no one responds. Leave messages; no one gets back. Contacted the dept.; a guy called back and referred me to one of the vets… (no help) …attitude is sickening, even as I relate I have an EPI dog with a near death experience from bloat/torsion two years ago, … that he just had a regimen for Lyme.”
EPI is exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. A form of chronic disease that throws a wrench in the works of digestion.
