Vaccines have come under fire in the past and may still warrant some skepticism today. The Village Vets of Buckhead are here to dispel any of your misunderstandings and answer any of your questions with honesty and transparency. Over-vaccination concerns have caused some pet owners to reject needed core vaccines for their pets—often with dire consequences. While over-vaccination is a concern, the vaccination guidelines by AAHA and AAFP that we adhere to are tried, tested, and proven to avoid any over-vaccination issues while providing full protection.
The topic of over-vaccination is seldom heard without the accompaniment of titer testing. Titers refer to a measure of antibodies in your pet’s immune system, and many have argued that they’re an alternative to vaccines. Unfortunately, this is misleading. While titers do have their uses, they still produce very inconclusive results and the measure of antibodies alone is simply not enough to paint a full picture of your pet’s immunity. With such disparity still present in the science of titer testing, we opt for more conclusive options. That’s why we vaccinate according to protocols lined out by leaders in the field to provide safe, effective protection for every pet.
