Got any advice or recent experience with the dog going to Bahamas?
Usually there's no problem with the date on a dogs health certificate, they just want your money, usually never scrutinize the cert. nor the animal.
As stated there ARE vets in Florida (North Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, etc.) that understand the 'recent date' Bahamian requirement and will give you an undated cert. ... and usually after they conduct a complete health exam, etc. If your vet wont give you an undated cert., find one who will.
