I know we have talked about should we or shouldn't we before, but yesterday was our annual Vet visit for Lucy and AnnaBelle. I know one of the many reasons I've heard that a lot of Vets don't do or suggest Titer testing is that they don't want to lose the business of getting regular vaccines. Well, as I paid my bill yesterday I'm thinking to myself, wow, it would have been a whole lot cheaper to have just gotten the vaccines.
Yes, the titers cost more than a shot. But with the new ones, you don't have to do them every year, either. I know with Jack's last one, the recommendation was to repeat the titer in two years, which I guess means he showed immunity for at least that long.
If both girls come back good this year our vet is going with 3 years going forward as they will both have showed 3 years immunity at least.
actuaĺly I started titers when AnnaBelle was 2 after all required puppy shots and 1 year shots etc. She did have to go ahead and get one of her shots that year. Cant remember which one. We do a lot of travelling with our girls so need the paperwork proving they are protected which is why we do titers. Our Vet prepares a document that is accepted as proof of vaccines.
