Titer Results

Just in case anyone is interested in this sort of thing...just got back my dog's titer results for distemper and parvo. My dog showed immunity in both. He had two sets of puppy shots only - one from the breeder per health certificate and one set a few weeks later from our vet. This was in 2012. We did not get the booster at one year. So our guy is still protected from just the two.

Same number of shots, or less, still protecting our 12 year olds, and younger. Not a single one has ever needed any more of anything since their puppy shot at 16 weeks. The ones we're going to keep only get the 16 week shot.

quote from Jean Dodds " titer a year after the last vaccine. If OK, skip the booster and re-titer a year later. If still OK, re-titer 3 years later."

I titer every year and Henry (6 years old) has never needed anything but rabies since his puppy vaccine. Good for you on doing the right thing.

I believe we will see chronic disease decline as we see the vaccination rate decline and good nutrition increase among our dogs. We will look back on these last 30 yrs as a miserable veterinary failure. Thank God for the internet and the information age! That may be a little harsh to put all the blame on Vets. Ultimately, Big Pharma is responsible.

I've never given boosters in all my life of owning dogs (and usually only 1 set of puppy shots) and I've never had a dog with chronic disease. Coincidence? I doubt it. : )
