AVA Vaccination Position Statement

Vaccination protocols should be determined within a veterinarian–client–patient relationship, based on attributes such as duration of immunity of available vaccines and an individual animal’s requirements.
Every animal should be immunised and each individual animal only as frequently as necessary. Current scientific consensus recommends that adult cats and dogs should be vaccinated with core vaccines triennially where applicable.

Incorporating Titer Testing in Your Practice

Dr Shawn Messonnier, DVM
As vaccine protocols have changed over the past few years, veterinarians have had to examine how to address this important issue. While many have adopted the recommendations to administer core vaccines every 3 years, others have been more resistant to change.

In my practice, I recognize that every patient is an individual with unique needs. While the recommendation to reduce core vaccines to every 3 years is an important step in reducing the administration of unnecessary vaccines, I question the one-size-fits-all approach. My clients don’t see their pets as statistics and prefer a more personalized approach to pet health care. Additionally, because pet owners are keenly aware that our current vaccines can produce long-lasting immunity (in some cases lasting 5 or 10 years or more,) and can cause harmful side effects, they prefer to only vaccinate their pets
when absolutely necessary.
