An animal vaccinated against rabies by a person who is not a licensed veterinarian or under the direct supervision of a licensed veterinarian may not be certified as vaccinated against rabies and must be treated as an unvaccinated animal under Title 22, chapter 251, subchapter 5 and rules adopted pursuant to that chapter.
