since django was a puppy, he has not responded well to any vaccinations in particular rabies. after his addisons diagnosis, i have had him tittered for all vaccinations. i also had a great vet prior to this one who would agree not to give django specific shots because of his reaction to them.
i spoke with the vet at his last visit and was concerned about his rabies shot which he's scheduled to have next month. last time django had a rabies shot he had a fever for days, was out of it for days etc. etc. etc. the vet said we could titer him for rabies. if it came back he was not a carrier, he would not need a shot. this would be a huge relief for me, i don't know how he would handle another rabies shot.
this posting is more as an FYI, if you have concerns about vaccinations for you dog, it's worth the expense to have them tittered. no need to give them what they don't need. django has not had any vaccinations other than rabies since he was a 2 and i am hoping no more rabies as well after this next titter.
