My dog's rabies shot "expired" on Saturday and we can't get into the vet for her shots for 4 weeks. How big a problem is this?

Unless the dog is regularly exposed to rabies, the main reason why you need to keep the dog vaccinated is usually to satisfy the city. They will still have some immunity. The dog won't be harmed.
