    Here in Australia I asked about the tiger test and my vet said it needs to be done every year the reason I asked about doing that a few of you know why but I confess I and Richard have decided this year at least not to give FTSE his needles we don't have rabies here so that's not a problem and we always went with the higher vaccine each year instead of the standard so I'm hoping FTSE will be fine but we had to decide this after this years attemp of giving FTSE his needles. Not happy with it one little bit but have to deal with it.

    Have you spoken to Dr Dikeman about it? Just curious. If it wasn't law here, I think I would go with the titre test but they ask for their shot records even when I take them to the groomers to have their nails trimmed.

    we always titer, though in Mass there is no legal titer value for rabies. Lola has a hugely adverse effect to the rabies vaccine, so now my only option is to refuse (we titer anyways, but its not accepted in this state). trained virologist here.

    i should disclaim here that I am pro vaccines 100% especially for people, but if you have the antibodies, you're good. second disclaimer, i decline the flu shot every year because I'm otherwise healthy and that virus mutates quickly so the vaccine can be less effective in any case.
