Vaccination vs Titre Results

4 posts in this topic

Hi all,

 

My pup was vaccinated initially by breeder before picking up at 8 weeks, we then had 2 lots of C5 done at roughly 10 weeks and 16 weeks. I had dog titre tested at 15months and all anitibody results were high(1:80).

Now I have done a second titre at 2 1/2 and the distemper results are low - all other results high.

This (new) vet is suggesting I revaccinate dog based on these results.

 

However, my readings suggest that a low results may not indicate lack of immunity but rather dog has had no contact with virus and is therefore not producing an immune result. And that my initial titre at 15month had shown that dog as an adult was capable producing an appropriate immune result.

 

Hoping some more experienced users can share their thoughts?

Dog is otherwise healthy - very fit and active.

 

Cheers.

 

Ben

I'd guess the risk is low either way.  I'd go ahead and vaccinate anyway to be on the safe side.

We suggest to anyone that wants to titre to still do the 15 month jab and titre after that ,

I'm not one to over vaccinate but I believe distemper is on the rise ( don't ask me where I read it as I can't remember ). I also believe the actual numbers for a titre don't matter as long as they are there. However saying all that I would do a C3 at this time. Distemper is an awful disease and I wouldn't risk my dog getting it.
