When the puppy is 12 weeks old or older than that, it is given the vaccine for rabies. Kitten vaccination schedules are such that when the cat is 8 weeks old, it is given 1st shot of vaccine. The second and third shots are given when the cat is 12 weeks and 16 weeks old respectively. Rabies booster shot is given to cat when it is 12 months old.

Pet owners need to know all these details accurately for taking care of their pets.
