During this panel discussion, a question was raised as to the options
available regarding checking for titers for the core vaccines of Hepatitis,
Parvovirus and Distemper.

Professor Ronald Schultz from the University of Wisconsin mentioned the
Canine VacciCheck as a novel “in house” option for titer checking. Professor
Schultz described the VacciCheck as being a cost effective, user friendly and
expedient titer test for Hepatitis (Canine Adenovirus), Parvovirus and
Distemper to determine whether there is a need to revaccinate dogs and
therefore avoid potential adverse events. Professor Schultz also discussed

About the Canine VacciCheck:

The Canine VacciCheck was recently approved by the USDA in the USA.

The Canine VacciCheck kit is intended to be used as a diagnostic tool to
evaluate the antibody response to the core vaccination or infection by
Infectious Canine Hepatitis (Canine Adenovirus), Canine Parvovirus and
Distemper Virus.

This test is especially useful to determine if a dog requires additional
vaccination, and may save the dog unnecessary vaccination. It is can also
help determine the vaccination status of a dog with unknown vaccination
history or help determine if puppies have received immunity from vaccination.

What is unique about Biogal’s ImmunoComb(R) Canine VacciCheck is that it
gives the veterinarian the opportunity of being able to quantitatively check
for all the 3 core vaccines. This is all done in one test as a follow up to
vaccination, in the vet’s clinic or the veterinary lab, with an answer
received within 20 minutes.
