Subject: Vaccination and checking titers

In a message dated 4/1/01 11:49:57 AM,

<< This is a good point that I haven't really thought about. Why don't we
run titers first? Is it

that the vaccinations are so cheap, why bother? Is it because most animals
would still require the

vaccinations? Is it because we don't want to make two trips, one for the
titer, one for the

inevitable vaccination? >>

I believe the problem is that we really don't know what titer levels are
required to provide protection from distemper. Until we do, considering how
devastating distemper is, it's safer to vaccinate.
