Controversy surrounds the issue of vaccinating pets. Recent research at numerous colleges of veterinary medicine is showing vaccines are producing long term immunity in our pets. The AVMA is now asking veterinarians to consider reduced vaccine protocols (vaccinating every three years instead of annually). At Animal Health & Healing we believe in using vaccines very judiciously. We recognize the risk of allergic reactions, vaccinosis, and the worsening of chronic disease by over vaccinating. Animal Health & Healing recommends the vaccination schedule established by the Veterinary Teaching Hospital at Colorado State University. We also offer and recommend antibody titer testing to help determine if revaccination is needed. Our doctors at Animal Healing & Healing will work with you to determine the best course of action based upon your pet’s level of health, general lifestyle, and risk for exposure to infectious disease.
