KIBBUTZ GALED, Israel, May 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
An interview recently published in the Chicago Tribune, addresses the use of Canine VacciCheck®, developed by Biogal, as a way to titer test dogs for core canine vaccines.
In the article, Professor Schultz from the University of Wisconsin refers to Canine VacciCheck®: "One way to insure comfort for pet owners and veterinarians alike is to titer test dogs every three years. A titer test checks to determine the level of protective antibodies. If those antibodies exist, why revaccinate? Schultz asks. A new titer test, called Canine VacciCheck®, just now being made available to veterinarians, is faster and easier."
The interview relates to the recently published new American Animal Hospital Association Vaccination Guidelines.
