The superiority of merzonin vaccine as compared with a phenol killed vaccine in exptl. immunization of dogs is reported. Challenged with street virus injected into the brain 4 wks. after one immunizing dose of 5 ml. vaccine, all survived. All surviving dogs challenged similarly a 2d time after 6 mos. survived again. All these dogs developed a high titer of rabicidal antibodies in a short time. Dogs immunized with phenolized vaccine produced antibodies much slower and reached a significantly lower antibody titer. It is suggested that all dogs be immunized with merzonin vaccine by a single subcut. injn. twice a year.
