Hadley- you say your dog was never vaccinated, but you got her as an adult. Don't you think it's a possibility she was vaccinated by her previous owners or where she came from?
I asked me vet about running titers on my dogs- $248 for a "vaccine titer" and $247 for a rabies titer! Holy cow... I have two dogs and two cats, there's no way I could afford that every year! If anything, I would titer my cats as I believe they are more likely to develop issues from vaccines. As it is I just decided to only get my one cat his rabies and we skipped his distemper combo vaccine. He refuses to go outside and is not exposed to outside cats. I am more reluctant to skip vaccines for my dogs because of fostering. My dogs are frequently exposed to dogs that have come directly from a shelter environment, and I know all the nasty germs that can come from there. The rescue occasionally gets puppies that pop with parvo, and we even had an adult dog come down with parvo once! Lucky for me- not at my house!
