Scientists at Kansas State University have modified the test that measures immune response to rabies virus.
They assert that the test provides a valid indication of the dog's resistance to the rabies virus. If the titer test measures 0.5 IU/mL or higher, the dog should be considered protected and might need a booster only if exposed to the rabies virus.
While not yet accepted by national veterinary organizations, hopefully it will eventually decrease or eliminate the need for rabies booster shots.
