Vaccination & Titre Testing
Previous vaccinations protocols recommended yearly vaccination of core disease for dogs (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus – DHP) and cats (Herpesvirus, Calicivirus, Panleukopenia – HCP), and other optional vaccination, such as Canine Cough, Leptospirosis, Feline Immunodeficiency (FIV), Feline Leukaemia (FeLV), Feline Chlamydia.
However, recent studies show that most animal continue to have circulating antibodies many years after their initial puppy or kitten vaccinations. Fortunately, an in-house test was designed to identify these antibodies, providing us with a valuable information of pet’s immunity. This test is what we normally called Titre Test.
Along with the development of 3 year vaccines, Titre testing is an important tool in our practice nowadays, as we can now offer the most advanced vaccination protocol that guarantees if your pet has immunity to fight the core diseases, DHP in dogs and HCP in cats.
Over-vaccination has been a concerning issue for many pet owners, as we understand that each pet have their own immunity system and respond differently to the disease. After many years using Titre Testing, we have noticed that many pets have circulating antibodies for many years after their initial immunisations. On the other hand, some pets need a vaccination boosters throughout their life.
You can now have accurate information of your pet’s health without the fear of skipping vaccinations. We design preventive care protocols according to your pet’s need, one shot doesn’t fit all!
