A 16week vaccine or titre test could be considered for certain breeds, or during a disease outbreak. And when titers are used, the only test that is usually accepted is the FAVM from the Kansas State University veterinary laboratory. Some varieties primarily cause liver damage, while others concentrate in the kidneys.
As with so many important topics, for every study suggesting one conclusion, there are other studies suggesting a different result. I get this question more often than I used to: “If I’m not vaccinating my animal against parvo and distemper (or —-) do I need to avoid contact with other animals?” The norm has been for my patients to come to me already vaccinated, so the easy answer, based on duration of immunity, was no, the immunity should persist for “years if not the life of the animal.” Now that people have thought more about the dangers of vaccination, it may be that some are choosing not to vaccinate until later in life (pups at 12-16 weeks old, for example), to be sure the minimum number of vaccines will give long-lived immunity.
