Region 7 is comprised of 30 Texas Counties including McLennan. Since January 2017 there have been 146 positive laboratory confirmed rabies cases. It's the law to get your pets vaccinated, but it is also about human health and life. #rabies #awareness #vaccinate #health ... See MoreSee Less

Tara JensenI wondered if you had any information regarding titer testing for senior dogs and the rabies vaccine? We're looking into titer testing for our two seniors, one is 10 and the other is almost 11. We had the 10yr old, Phoebe, inoculated when we began fostering her for rescue. We have since adopted her, so we will be considering the same protocol for both seniors. The 11yr old, Neka, we've had since she was 6 weeks old, and she's had all of her vaccines, regularly, all of her life. In my research, it would appear that the rabies vaccine is the only vaccine that can't be titer tested, because it is required by law to have your dogs vaccinated for rabies, regardless of the age, vaccine history, or health of the dog. Is this the case? She's very healthy now, but recent empirical evidence is suggesting that continuing to inoculate elderly dogs that have enough antibodies to fight off various diseases, especially ones that aren't healthy, can cause further health issues, and increase the occurrence of cancer. I wondered what information you had on this topic? We just want to make sure we're providing the best possible health plan for our pups 🐶, and I thought others might be curious about this, too. Thank you, for any information you can provide. ☺️

Testimonials

I am VERY satisfied with everything. Leo was kind of scared at first, but he has calmed down after getting him home. We couldn't believe the prices and everything that is included with the procedure, and everything was so helpful. The staff is soooo nice and was very explanitory about the post-op procedures and what to do in an emergency. Thank you ABC Clinic!!
