Hence the difference in the diseases and parasites which infect different species and the difference in what types of drugs can be used in each species safely.

Rabies vaccination in horses is still recommended yearly. There are no studies that show that rabies vaccination lasts for 3 or even 2 years in horses.
I did not say rabies vaccine lasts for 3 years in horses....that was for cats

Also There have been studies in horses, that the vaccine antibodies is prevalent in horse for beyond a year.
Now I'm from Canada....so perhaps this isn't the case in the states, but here in my Province...Vets are now only recommending rabies vaccinations for dogs every 2 years, horses every 2 years, and cats every 3.

And I never said that horse cats, and dogs had the same types of systems

Always behind....yes your correct that a vet must give the rabies vaccine....this is because they must document the time, place etc it was given. So that they (gov) can do any follow up on rabies cases.
Here you (the average joe blow) cannot buy rabies vaccine as you can regular vaccines, your vet must administer it

Same here.

That is why I have the vet do everything in the spring. The horse gets a good physical, all their shots, teeth done and sheath cleaned.

Good to go until fall.

I can do my own shots. Have done my own shots.

But I like having a good working relationship with my vet.

It is actually just as cheap for me to have the vet vaccinate for what he recommends than to buy them myself; however, it is MUCH cheaper to do the dogs, cats, goats and llama myself - which we do.
Rabies can be purchased here - but not ordered by mail - and given by anyone, but with dogs and cats, you have to have a vet do it for the county to recognize it. Most vets recommend only once every three years for reg. vaccinations in adult dogs, but I have not heard the same for horses.

Could you send links to those studies?

I will ask my vet....as he is the one, who gave me this information regarding vaccination protocols in our area.

Ok, so disposal... can you burn them? The property owner has a burn barrel, it's on an Indian reservation. So are the syringes and needles burn-able? I mean, they put EVERYTHING in this barrel...

No, that isn't going to take care of needles. Needles are considered biological hazardous wastes and must be disposed of properly. People who use needles regularly must use something along the lines of a Sharps container and an appropriate disposal service to get rid of them. Some pharmacies offer this service or your vet might be willing to dispose of them.

I don't know, Reservation rules are different than city, or even state rules. I'll have to look into it.
