The World Small Animal Veterinary Association issued an update to its vaccination guidelines. The guidelines are meant as a strategy outline and not as a rule written in stone.
The emphasis remains both on evidence-based medicine as well as the understanding that one size does not fit all.
The core vaccines for dogs remain distemper, adenovirus and parvovirus. Interestingly, there is a question whether rabies should be a core vaccine across-the-board or whether in some regions it could be optional. That bit actually surprised me. But the world is a big place and apparently rabies virus isn't endemic everywhere.
The updated document also brings a better understanding of maternally-derived antibodies in puppies, different options for puppy booster vaccine, information about titer testing and immunity duration.
The also published a document meant for owners and breeders which explains the matters in simple terms.
