    Titers Join Debate on Vaccine Frequency

         

    "Few veterinarians are proactive about discussing the options clients have in protecting their pets against disease, says W. Jean Dodds, DVM, founder of Hemopet, a non-profit veterinary blood bank in Garden Grove, Calif. The industry promotes more vaccines and veterinarians feel comfortable telling clients theyre necessary. Often, technicians have vaccines prepared before the doctor even examines the animal. Many vets dont know how to handle titers or dont want to bother with them."

    The Rabies Challenge Fund Charitable Trust will determine the duration of immunity conveyed by rabies vaccines. The goal is to extend the required interval for rabies boosters to 5 and then to 7 years. This project depends primarily upon grassroots gifts for funding the costs of conducting the requisite vaccine trials. Our contributions to date have come mostly from kennel clubs and private individuals. The Rabies Challenge Fund Charitable Trust is a federally registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization [Fed. EIN # 84-6390682].

    Hi Robin- I know you've had dogs for many years and are very knowledgeable so please don't take this the wrong way....but I'd get much more out of your posts if you wrote about your experiences and/or opinions. What is your experience with titers vs vaccines? What do you personally think? If you're looking to start a discussion, I think you'll have better results that way. Otherwise, you're just posting stuff that anyone can find via google.

    Minimum Duration of Immunity for Canine Vaccines:

    Distemper- 7 years by challenge/15 years by serology
    Parvovirus  7 years by challenge/ 7 years by serology
    Adenovirus  7 years by challenge/ 9 years by serology
    Canine rabies  3 years by challenge/ 7 years by serology

    Dr. Schultz concludes: Vaccines for diseases like distemper and canine parvovirus, once administered to adult animals, provide lifetime immunity. Are we vaccinating too much? JAVMA, No. 4, August 15, 1995, pg. 421.
