Vaccines are products designed to trigger protective immune responses in pets and prepare them to fight future infections from disease-causing agents. Vaccines can lessen the severity of future diseases and certain vaccines can prevent infection altogether. The vaccine protocols used at Loving Touch are based on American Animal Hospital Association guidelines, adjusted to the needs of the individual patient. To further mediate the risk of vaccine-related reactions in our patients, Loving Touch routinely administers one of two homeopathics orally, immediately following vaccination.
As an alternative to our vaccination protocols, laboratory titer testing can be used to determine disease immunity in Loving Touch patients. With positive titer results, upcoming vaccinations (except for Rabies) may be able to be postponed even beyond the recommended three year intervals.
