Steps To Follow:

1

Have your veterinarian administer a second valid rabies vaccination.  On this same day, have your vet draw a blood sample for a rabies titer (FAVN test type) to be drawn and sent to one of the two designated rabies testing labs in the US:

Helpful Tip:

If submitting rabies titer test to Kansas State University Rabies Laboratory, have your veterinarian call the laboratory at (785) 532-4483 to set-up a diagnostic account number. With a diagnostic account number, your veterinarian can go online to register and learn how to submit the rabies titer test. Kansas State University Rabies Laboratory will send a free UPS shipping label to your veterinarian. Testing submitted directly through the laboratory’s online system is significantly discounted.
