    Ann, I ran titers on my dogs this year.

    My 2 yr old, 2.5 yr old and 5 yr old were high positive on protection for hepatitis, parvo and distemper. My 6-yr old was low on hepatitis, so I vaccinated him ONLY for hepatitis, nothing for the other dogs as far as those three.

    I did get annual lepto separate from doc for all four. I give that annually.

    I do lepto, Lyme annually. Distemper/parvovirus combo and rabies every 3 yrs, although I do titer prior to vaccinating. Most of my adult dogs go 4-5 yrs before needing a booster on dist/parvovirus. I don't do bored tells but I don't kennel my dogs either. Most vets up here do have separate lepto as they recommend it being given yearly.

    Just a side note....the bacterial vaccinations (lyme, lepto, bordatella) don't last a year. More like 9 months. So if you are giving Lyme and Lepto, they should be done in the late winter (Feb., for ex) in order to provide protection through the prime season. There's not a whole lot of point in doing them in, for example, October in the cold weather climates.
    I do the distemper/parvo/etc. as well as the rabies every 3 years, but not in the same year. Bordatella every 6 months due to high exposure (agility, obedience, plus I own a boarding kennel). Lepto every February, we don't do Lyme at all because he's been Lyme positive and there's evidence that you do not vaccinate dogs who have already been Lyme positive.
    Not a believer in titers. Too much controversy at this time. We need to learn more about them. Just my personal opinion.

    That's why I do my lepto annually in March to cover our prime season for that, as there are varying opinions on how long the lepto vaccine lasts. We do bordatella (nasal) every 6 months for the dogs off training. I don't do Lyme at all either, though if I did, it would be annually and boostered late winter as well.

I like the $$$$$ saved.
    I stopped vaccinating after the Age 1 booster 15 years ago. All I give is rabies after that booster because its the law.

    Your vet needs to read the research that forced the AVMA to go to 3 years, or longer if you closely read the guidlines.

    The research strongly suggests (proves actually) that lifelong immunity is achieved once the Age 1 booster is given. The 3 year policy was adopted to placate the vaccine companies, it does not reflect need.

    Thing like Lepto are highly geographic dependent. More than 50% of all Lepto cases are reported in Hawaii. Lyme totally useless. That vaccine should be taken off the market.

    There is some new research explaining how vaccines contribute to cancer risk.

    I don't titer either. All it does is indicate exposure, not immunity. The Vet doesn't tell you that when you write the check.
