An Antibody Titer Test is a 3-in-1 canine titer test for Parvovirus (CPV), Distempter (CDV) and Infectious Hepatitis (ICH).
Annual revaccination for core diseases in Australia is no longer recommended by the AVA or WSAVA and may increase the risk for adverse reactions. Antibody Titer Testing eliminates the need to unnecessarily re-vaccinate adult dogs.
Dr Jodie Low Choy from Vet 2 Pet will conduct an antibody Titer Test by drawing a small blood sample from your dogs foreleg in a private consult room within our facility. Results will be received within 1 week.
Please note: An adult dog over 12 months of age that has had a C3 or C5 vaccination does not need a Titer Test or Re-vaccination for 3 years unless required for the purpose of kennels or for your own peace of mind.
The cost includes a certificate if your dog receives a positive result for all 3 core diseases. You will receive a 3 year certificate if your dogs last core vaccination was a tri-annual one and a 12 month certificate if your dogs last vaccination was an annual vaccination. If your dog receives a low or negative result for one or more of the diseases, Jodie will discuss your results and options with you post appointment.
Lepto and KC cannot be titer-tested. These are 'non-core' and 'optional' vaccines in Australia and can be discussed with Jodie at your appointment and performed if necessary.
** If you have a reactive dog, please contact us before your appointment so we can ensure your safe entry and exit.
