Using Antibody Titer Tests to Fight Disease Outbreaks

April 2012

Audience(s):Veterinary Team
Would it make a difference at your shelter if you could know within half an hour of admission whether a cat or dog was already immune to parvo, distemper, or panleukopenia? Thanks to the introduction of on-site antibody titer tests, that's not a hypothetical question. In research on antibody titer tests in shelter environments conducted at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, the University of Florida, and Purdue University with funding by Maddie's Fund, these tests have proven to save lives and resources both in preventing and responding to disease outbreaks.

That's why he offered a shelter a chance to make a different choice during their next outbreak, allowing them to save the lives of 17 dogs. How did they do it? With the use of a simple in-house antibody titer test that revealed which pets had an immunity to the disease. Learn More
