    Vaccination Titer Testing

    Antibody titer is a laboratory
    test , done by your vet, that
    measures the level of
    antibodies in your dog.

    The antibody level in the
    blood tells your vet whether or
    not your dog has the proper
    amount of antibodies to ward
    off disease, & can help your
    prevent over-vaccination of
    your dog.
