Posh's titer results back after 7to8 years

It's been more than 7 and maybe 8 years since his last shot.

I can't see it--hope you can fix it so that we can. I'm very interested.

Different computer operating systems see things differently. I don't know how to fix it. I just copied and pasted the results we had emailed to us from the bloodwork service.

It said that all levels were still greater than whatever the different thesholds for the different illnesses were. In short, as good as it gets even if he had had shots every year, or how ever frequently some vets recommend. He hasn't had a shot since he was a puppy, and is 8 years old now-Birthday in August.

Tom, do you not do rabies? Tucker hasn't had any shots since he was about a year old, either--except for the 3 year Thimerosal Free Rabies he got a few months ago, (legally required to have rabies here.)

It is good to hear how long the vaccinations can last! I've heard some may never be needed again.

WOW. That is astounding. So we are basically way, way over vaccinating!
Sorry to state the obvious!! I am REALLY new to this subject.

I just had titers done for Riley too. Shows he still has protection. Vets says she does the same for her dogs. Interested to see what the official reports says. I didn't get a copy.

This is a stupid question, but how do you pronounce "titer"? Is the ti like tiger?

yeah Tom , that's in line with Drs. Schultz and Dodds research. You participated in that survey right? The discouraging part is that titers cost more than the vaccinations .

Rabies shots are required by law. We don't do titers for rabies.

The bloodwork was actually sent to Dodds lab. Yeah, try doing them for 12 dogs and tell me you can make a lot of money breeding dogs.
