Our beloved vet who was much liked and trusted, has moved, and it looks like we'll have to start with a new vet and vet practice. Khan is due for his annual physical, which is typically when they'll want to administer his DHPP. Given that we had no history on him, I did have him on a yearly booster protocol, but now that he has had them 3 years in a row, had talked to the prior vet about doing titers instead.

Have to start from scratch with the new vet, and need convincing info that yearly vaccines are not necessary. I thought that the ACVM put out a revised vaccine protocol, but can't find it. What I was able to find are protocols used by university hospitals (like UPenn) that supports my stand, but also says that you should rely on your vet to develop a protocol that is suitable for your dog. Help!

Thanks, Gwen. I was hoping I'd find something more "official". I could've sworn that the ACVM put out a revised vaccination protocol.

I bet Diane B will have some information. I am sure you already checked on her "dog-play" site though?

I will keep poking around for you.

I only have done the required by law rabies vaccine,now,going on now more than 20 years,and I do not do the titers except every 3 yers and I am thinking about not doing them as well.
NOT to save money but because I feel it does more harm than good. Paulette~
The vets here have FINALY come around and saying every three years is the way NOW.
Must have been 20 years ahead of my time,huh?
