Titer Testing

Hemopet’s Hemolife Diagnostics is world renowned for its titer testing. What differentiates Hemopet is that the results of each sample are reviewed and reported by the Hemolife staff on our unique Cloud-Based computer technology Laboratory Information System (LIS). They are then personally reviewed and interpreted by Dr. Jean Dodds and two trained veterinary colleagues, Drs. Andrew Zuckerman and Gary Richter. Based on pet’s species, age and species, Hemopet will will provide you with suggestions if the pet should receive a booster shot.

Note about Canine Titer Testing
Dr. Jean Dodds suggests that dogs should be titer tested for distemper and parvovirus every three years to ensure immunity is maintained against these viruses. If a dog had been recently vaccinated with the DPV (distemper, parvovirus vaccine) shot, she suggests waiting three weeks to perform the test. Puppies, too, should be measured at least three weeks after the last vaccination and not before 16 weeks of age.
