No Vaccination Boosters at this time

Maccabee was at the vet last weekend for a follow-up exam following his recent upper respiratory infection (and dehydration). He got a clean bill of health, although he is on antibiotics through Saturday.

While we were there, I asked about titers instead of boosters. Our vet said that is certainly a reasonable way to go, and since Maccabee had a reaction to one of his shots at 3 months, he recommended we run titers rather than blindly give boosters. Got the results today and Maccabee is still protected. Yes!

He will get a rabies shot in October, though.

Same with Riley this past January. Titers done, no need for boosters. Vet told me she does the same for her dogs.

Titers still holding strong here for 8 years so far. None of ours have ever needed anything beyond the first puppy shots.

We get titers drawn too, except for the Rabies.
