Titer test: test if your dog or cat is protected against rabies

Want to take a dog or cat with you on you travels? When going abroad, it is usually necessary for a cat or dog to be vaccinated against rabies. Sometimes a titer test is also needed before departure, to show that antibodies have been formed after vaccination. Ask the vet and/or the embassy of the country you are travelling to for advice on this matter.

In the Netherlands, Wageningen Bioveterinary Research is officially recognised as EU laboratory that performs the titer test. This test determines the amount of antibodies in the blood (the titre). It shows whether the vaccination has been successful, i.e. whether the dog or cat is sufficiently protected against rabies. This test is called 'rabies serology'.
