i just started titer testing my dog. my breeder is very anti vaccinations, and recommended that i start doing this with my dog. her dogs other than rabies have been vaccination free for 7 years. i only give my dog rabbies. i had a long talk with my vet and told him that he had a reaction to lepto and parvo, he was out of it for days and had a fever. anyways, titering helps determine if they are a carrier to the above. if they are not, there's no need to vacinate them. she also mentioned to me that most vets although knowledgeable, don't know a whole lot about havanese. i had taken several articles about vaccinations and how they affect the hav,he read it and decided to take a different approach with my dog than others. anyways, so far, he's great, no reactions, he's due for his rabies this summer. keep in mind, todays vaccinations are all lumped in one so it's a triple whammy to our pups and they give the same dose to our little guys as they would to a st. bernard.
