Bummer. I know there's some promising work being done, and I had hoped that there was really a vaccine out there.

Thanks for checking for me.

My vet said the same thing this year. It's never been suggested to us in years past, but this year I was told I should consider it because it's becoming more prevalent in the area. And not only in the rural areas, but in the cities too. For now I'm holding off and not getting it (I usually titer instead of vaccinate anyway).
