The ImmunoComb VacciCheck is a user-friendly, in-practice kit which tests for antibody titres to the three core infections:
Results which determine whether an individual dog or cat still has immunity to these core diseases are provided within 21 minutes. Measuring antibody levels helps determine when the puppy vaccine series can be ended.
Serology testing is useful after a dog or cat vaccination to indicate whether immunisation was achieved successfully and as a result the vaccine programmes can be modified for the individual animal.
The VacciCheck titre test for dogs and cats is a simple blood test that tests for circulating anti-bodies. If anti-bodies are present, the dog/cat is immune to the core diseases and revaccination (with core vaccines) is not required.
New WSAVA guidelines recommend a titre test once a year rather than routinely giving dogs/cats a booster. If an animal is immune, an extra booster at this point would be surplus to requirements and wouldn’t provide any additional immunity.
The World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) has issued guidelines to veterinary surgeons and dog owners which aim to ensure that dogs are protected from infectious disease while reducing the number of vaccines that are given routinely. Full guidelines are available at this link: http://www.wsava.org/guidelines/vaccination-guidelines
These guidelines state that VacciCheck should be used for the following indications:
The VacciCheck titre test for dogs and cats is described by Professor Ronald Schultz as “a cost effective, user friendly and expedient titre test”. For shelter hepatitis, parvo or distemper outbreaks, VacciCheck rapidly and cheaply tests populations that are susceptible to or protected from these diseases. This allows many animals to live, that might otherwise have been euthanised.
