I have no idea how much the titer test is here although Im going to ask the shelter Vet tomorrow when I see her.

Some states have medical exemptions although Oklahoma isnt one of those Gouda was due for her rabies the year she crossed the bridge but I had no plans on giving it and wuold have taken my chances with the law. I also stopped all of Goudas vaccinations once she was diagnosed with cancer.

If you want to know your state law as far as rabies:
RABIES LAWS IN THE UNITED STATES as of 6/16/10

Off topic a bit but did you see that guy in Massachusetts that got attacked by the rabid Bobcat in his garage?

Holy crap - vaguely heard a little something on the news, but I was busy so wasn't paying that much attention. Had no idea it was rabid. Now I'm goinna have to google it.

Our first boxer Bosun only lived to 1 year old, but I probably would have blindly followed my vet's suggestions and vaccinated him each year. Since getting Jack, I've learned a lot more about vaccines. He had the puppy shots for parvo, distemper, and rabies. Since our first boxer had a very very very bad reaction to the Lepto vaccine, we did not give it to Jack, and he'll never have that or the one for Lyme. He also has not had a kennel cough vaccine as it was not required by our trainer. I'm undecided as to whether to get him the 1 year shots, which are coming up soon, or to ask our vet about titre testing instead. If we do get the one year shots, they'll be his last ones for life. I'd rather spend the money for titre tests than vaccinate unessessarily. Which I guess answers my own question about getting the 1 year vaccines I don't think I'll be ready for another puppy for at least 40 years or so, so maybe natural rearing will be the norm by then.

Yes, I was quoted about 250-300$ here.

Bosley got his puppy shots and one-year booster. He will be getting titres this year and nothing else. I highly doubt he needs anything anyways... so I'm hoping the titres show that.

Default More info

I too have alot of issues regarding vaccines with pets and children especially an early age, I have been told that if vacinated at 8 weeks is not effective and have been informed that at 12 weeks for the 1st shot is 100% then to do a shot at 18 months? and believe rabies on top of it! Have you heard of this?
I had a previous Rotty that gave all his shots to and passed of cancer (lymphosarcoma) nightmare! at a very young age of 31/2 and doing alot of research came to some very wise conclusions on vaccines. I then owned a rotty x Collie and gave him 1 initial shot and never immunized again he was never at the vet til he was 12 years old and not sick or hurt or problem ever with him until we had to put him down for a tumor on his groin. so feel had not a problem (the not vaccinated dog) but that was a few years back now but newer days more diseases...I do not want baby baxter gettting sick because of these diseases so really need the best info I can get on the best holistic ways! I appreciate any info you can give me. Thanks. Cheers

I just read an article a friend sent me on why some vaccines should wait till 6 months? Just looking for your thoughts?? Loaded question I know!
I love to read that article!

I'm going to link another thread here. It has links to 4 video interviews with Dr. Schultz about vaccines. Each video is about 15 minutes long, but definitely worth watching.

How Often Should You Vaccinate Your Dog?

If the links don't work when you click on them, just copy and paste.

Thanks for posting the link! .... Now that our new pup is home... I am in research overload mode lol.... both with RAW for puppies and vaccines. My older dogs had their scheduled shots for the first year (absolutely no extra vaccines) and now of course its been 3 years and Breeze "should" be vaccinated and of course little Miss Winter will need vaccines in a few short weeks. (she had her first vaccine at the breeders) My golden had his vaccines for the first year... then at 3 he is now 7 and we are going to test him... His health 4 years ago was SOOOOOO bad.... I switched him to RAW and it took about a year to get him back to a healthy dog. It was as if we had him vaccinated and neutered and his health went down hill... Since no more vaccines and feeding RAW he has been healthy and strong, energy up... so there is just no way I could ever feed him kibble, or vaccinate him again.
