This program will examine current recommendations for canine and feline vaccination, focusing on recent changes to the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) guidelines. It will review intervals for the initial feline vaccination series and boosters in adults, the rationale behind updates to the initial canine vaccination series, and revised guidance on the administration of leptospirosis and Lyme disease vaccines. It will also explore the indications and interpretation of antibody testing, including patient management recommendations based on test results. You’ll leave with a thorough understanding of current vaccine and vaccination recommendations.

determinations for when to treat non-core vaccines as core, and advice on avoiding vaccine adverse reactions.
