What is Titre Testing?

You can read all about vaccinations and titre testing on the my website at

Basically we will take a blood sample from your pet, take it to our lab and using an antibody test kit measure to see if she has antibodies to Distemper, Hepatitis and Parvovirus. If she has you don’t need to vaccinate her. If not it may be advisable.

We use the “Vaccicheck” brand of test kit

which is described here.

When should I have my dog tested?

  • Leave 3-4 weeks after puppy vaccinations and do then.
  • Before your pets annual vaccine is due
  • Before going to kennels or having treatment

Why should I have my dog tested?

If he has antibodies to a disease he does not need to have a vaccine but you can still rest easy and feel he is safe. Why vaccinate if it is not needed?

Email or phone if you need more information if you want to speak to me.
