* Primary vaccination may be administered at an earlier age (minimum in dogs and cats of 4 weeks of age), but then a repeat vaccination must be given at the age of 3 months.  
Can be used during pregnancy in dogs.
Further information:
Limited safety data for ferrets are available from monitoring post vaccination reactions. Ferrets can be vaccinated subcutaneously from 3 months of age. An adequate serological response (> 0.5 I.U.) has been demonstrated 1 month after vaccination and they should receive a booster vaccination every 18 months.
Health regulations and requirements in certain countries specify that dogs must be revaccinated annually against rabies.
Pet Travel Scheme (PETS):
Animals intended for vaccination under the Pet Travel Scheme (PETS) must be identified by a permanent numbered microchip. This microchip number must be recorded on the record of the dog, cat and ferret vaccination at the time of rabies vaccination.
