Titer question

931 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  ChloeAndBrodisMa
Chloe is due for her Lyme and Lepto vaccine. Now I spoke to her vet and she said there is a titer test for lyme but she is not sure there is one for Lepto? I guess not many people have titers down around here. She is waiting on a call back from Cornell to see what they say. Has anyone ever had a titer done on lepto?

This is where it gets confusing... I asked this vet about the lepto cases in our area and he said we have only seen one case of it in our office since last year and that strain wasn't covered with the vaccine. OMG...I specifically asked this when Brodi was in for his shots and this other vet said she highly recommended we get it due to the fact there have been cases in our area that the vaccine covered. I told the vet this and he said that
