What Titer Testing Services do you offer?

Vaccination or exposure to disease causes measurable levels of antibodies to form, and these are circulated in the bloodstream. Full Circle Veterinary Alternatives regularly performs in-house titer testing for dogs. We can assess antibody levels for Parvovirus, Adenovirus and Canine Distemper virus, which are the common components in the core vaccination protocol for puppies. Testing informs us of your pet’s level of protection and may prove that this core vaccine can be delayed for one to three years past the manufacturer’s reported duration of immunity. This helps you reduce unnecessary vaccination of your pets while keeping them safe and protected from disease.

Rabies titers, not valid for export, can also be run if you wish to demonstrate that your pet has protective immunity for more than the three-year duration of immunity claimed by most vaccine companies. We send Rabies titers to Kansas State University as part of a program that supports members of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association.
