To Titer or Not To Titer

Willow is due for her DHP+Parvo. How many of you do titer testing? Do you have to test for each (DHP & Parvo) or does the titer test do both since the shot does both? About how much does it cost?

I had Bingo titred at Hemopet. I consider Dr. Dodd’s lab to be the best in the Western Hemisphere. This page shows the pricing down near the bottom ($52 for Parvo and distemper), and then you add in the cost for your vet to draw blood and send it in. I’m lucky my vet would do that, not sure if every one will.

Yes, I titer too, and my vet automatically sends to Hemopet.

I would titer if I could. Here in Uganda my vet told me that the national office (which has to issue entry and exit permits when we travel) won't accept a titer, so we're stuck doing 1 year rabies AND annual DHLPPs with no option for either the 3 year rabies OR a titer on the rest.

Yeah, you are in a unique situation... Which is pretty funny, because I am SURE that in Uganda, there are tons of street dogs running around with absolutely no vaccinations of any kind!

Thanks everyone. I'm going to talk to my vet when we go in about getting the titer done for DHP/Parvo. The state requires the rabies shot though so I'll get that one done since it is also due.

We've had nothing but good titers, some for over ten years, after only the puppy shots. None of our personal dogs have ever gotten any other shots, except for the required Rabies, since their puppy shots.

That's what I'm doing with my younger ones. IMO (not knowing any better) I let Kodi be vaccinated too much when he was a youngster. I am convinced that his allergy problems and his inability to tolerate even Rabies vaccine (he has a waiver... legal in our state) are a result of that.

Neither of our girls has any problems, neither of them even had one-year boosters for anything but Rabies. We do titer annually, but I've read a number of papers suggesting that you don't even need to do that once the dog has shown an initial titer. I'm just not quite brave enough to do that.
