Vaccination policies for Dogs and Cats

Vaccines are a point of great controversy now. Because the Feline Veterinary Health organizations have issued their recommendations of three-year vaccinations instead of the traditional yearly vaccines, many practitioners are in a quandary as to how to respond.

3 Year versus Annual

It must also be evident “what is best for the pet” is highest in the mind when administering a vaccination policy. Most clients will have heard that 3-year vaccines are recommended. Even though a pet needs vaccines only every three years, the value of the bi-annual or annual physical examinations cannot be lost.

Vaccine Titer testing

This is an alternative to vaccinating. Titers will tell the level of protection that a pet has. Only animals with a low titer need vaccination. Some clients prefer to do titer tests in order to avoid over vaccination. In-house kits are now available for distemper and parvo vaccines.

Rabies

Annual for Rabies is still mandatory in many states including Texas.
