VacciCheck® Provides semi quantitative serological results for the three core vaccines. • Checks these three vaccines in one test in the veterinary clinic or lab.• Supplies results within 21 minutes.• Does not require a lab or lab technician to perform the test. • Analysis of individual or larger amount of pets (up to 12 per analysis). • VacciCheck contains pre- diluted reagents and materials.
Is more cost effective for the vet, when compared to titer testing in a lab.
Please note some of the key recommendations and discussion points that the WSAVA Vaccination Guidelines Group has recently published in the “VACCINATION GUIDELINES FOR NEW PUPPY OWNERS”:
- “Core vaccines should not be given any more frequently than every three years after the 12 month booster injection following the puppy/kitten series, because the duration of immunity (DOI) is known to be many years and may be up to the lifetime of the pet.”
- “The WSAVA strongly supports the concept of the ‘annual health check’ which removes the emphasis from, and client expectation of, annual revaccination and suggests that vaccination (if required) forms only one part of an annual veterinary visit that considers the entire health and wellbeing of the individual dog.”
- “ A high percentage (98%) of core puppy vaccines given between 14-16 weeks of age will provide immunity against parvovirus, distemper and adenovirus for many years, and probably for the life of the animal.”
- “The WSAVA supports the use of titre testing. This is where a small sample of blood is taken from the dog and checked for the presence of circulating antibodies. The presence of circulating antibodies indicates that the dog is immune, and revaccination (with core vaccines) is not required. You may decide to titre test before giving the 12 month booster, as this may show that boosting is unnecessary. Two new in-practice titre-testing kits are now available which will allow your vet to do a titre test very quickly, without sending the blood sample to a laboratory. Ask your vet to look into this less expensive option. One kit is called VacciCheck (Biogal Laboratories) and the other is called TiterChek (Zoetis).”
