Titer tests.... vaccinations?
I know I've read on here that some of you get the titer tests done before vaccinations to see if you dog even needs them every year. Can you tell me a little more? Tatum and Stormie (our Aust. Shep) are due for shots and I want to have as much info as possible when I approach the vet about the titer tests. Is that what it's called? How do you pronounce it.... long i or short i? I've mentioned the tests in passing to my vet once and he kinda blew it off. I want to have more info so I can stand my ground when I talk to him.
Thanks in advance for your help and info!

My two Yorkies have only had their initial shots and haven't had any since then and they are now 14 and 15 months old. When they are around 5 years old I will have the titer test run on them to see if they are still protected. My 15 year old Chihuahua never gets shots at all. When she was just a puppy getting her puppy shots she had a seizure. That was it as far as I was concerned!
