Vaccinations are harmful. Today veterinarians now tell us that just
like us dogs donít need annual vaccines. A vaccine contains a
weakened version of an actual disease. When it is given to your dog
the immune system reacts by forming antibodies against that
particular disease (it shows the immune system what a particular
disease looks like so that the immune system can produce the correct
antibodies to destroy the disease if it should ever show up),
therefore protecting the dog incase it ever comes across the real
thing. And therefore the vaccine is the disease it doesnít attack
is the original catalyst that gets the dogís immune system going
to create antibodies. The only thing the vaccine does is shows the
immune system what a particular disease looks like so if the disease
ever shows up the immune system can produce the right antibodies to
destroy it. The dogís immune system itself is what actually
protects it from disease.
cells are in the immune system. By one vaccination these cells have
been shown what to do against a certain disease. For years and years
(or for life) the memory cells will produce the correct antibodies
against that disease for whenever it is needed if it should ever
make its way into your dogís body.
dog has had its puppy shots, booster shots are not needed they
simply donít work because your dogs system already has the
antibodies from the prior vaccination, booster shots are neutralized
by the existing antibodies. So repeating vaccinations does not boost
the dogsí immunity at all the dog canít get any more immune than
it already is. There is no advantage (in fact there is a
disadvantage annual vaccinations will shorten your dogs life span)
in revaccinating an already immune dog because the previous immunity
will inactivate the vaccine.
by insisting on annual vaccines the vet industry is trying to make a
profit. The vet offices charge $15 to $50 for vaccinations. The vets
pay less than two bucks apiece for these vaccines, and then
thereís the office visit, which costs $25 to $40. Itís in the
veterinariansí best interest financially for you to bring in your
dog or cat in annually, because vaccines account for the primary
portion of a veterinarianís income. Regular exams are one thing
(annually exams are very important) but vaccines are another.
are harmful yearly vaccinations make pets sick! Annual vaccinations
destroy the health and immune systems of our pets. They cause all
types of illnesses. And repeating vaccines annually damages the
health of dogs and cats or any animal. Veterinary immunologists say
that vaccines are needed only once or twice in an animalís life.
Annual vaccines will definitely cause chronic disease
is the term to describe the chronic disease caused by vaccinating.
These symptoms can happen right after the vaccine is given or it may
take months or even years to appear. The symptoms include itching,
excessive licking of the paws, epilepsy (often after the rabies
vaccination) aggressiveness, urinary infections, allergies, thyroid
problems, loss of hair, body weight over or under (depending on the
thyroid), stiffness & pain in the joints, dental problems,
fearfulness, hepatitis, renal failure, cystitis, autoimmune
hemolytic anemia, 11 neurological diseases, asthma, cancer,
inflammation, ear infections, digestive upset, adrenal disorders,
pancreatic disorders, degenerative arthritis, kidney/liver failure,
difficulty focusing/paying attention, joint maladies, immune-system
diseases, premature death.
request killed vaccines.
According to experts in immunology modified live vaccines (MLV) are
considered the most dangerous to give. They have the ability to
replicate and mutate in the animalsí body. Killed vaccines donít
replicate in the vaccinated animal. Believe it or not but modified
live vaccines are actually banned in Scandinavian countries.
and kittens should not be vaccinated at less than 8 weeks of age
because puppies receive antibodies through their motherís milk and
this natural protection can last from 8 weeks to 14 weeks. If
vaccinated at 6 weeks old will the vaccine hold back the earliest
greatly effective vaccine which is given at the age of 8 weeks. The
immunity they already have from mother will neutralize the vaccine
and cause little protection that is 0 to 38% just like booster shots
a booster will be neutralized by the previous vaccine and will do no
good. Vaccinations too often in between will suppress the immune
system such as two weeks apart however waiting longer between
vaccinations will stimulate the immune system such as three to four
weeks apart up until 16 weeks of age. Another vaccination given
sometime after 6 months old a good time is at a year and 4 months of
age this will provide immunity for life.
can our pets be safe without vaccinations?
a look at Germanyís dog breeders. Germanyís kennels vaccinate at
the age of 10 weeks old with the distemper and parvovirus vaccine
only and then it is repeated at 1 year of age. Rabies is given when
needed. Can you believe these dogs are having litters at 10 years of
age and also showing in the ring! Most live to the age of 16 years
or more. Here in the US our dogs are dying at the age of 10 years on
average. Some breeders have found that their line is in better
health and in most cases immune to disease by discontinuing
some cats and dogs can be very susceptible to disease and may become
infected and may die if it is serious however mild disease if
treated holistically can save the animal.
vaccine should be given separately despite the fact that it might be
cheaper to vaccinate for several diseases at once. This especially
is true with the rabies vaccine.
Donít vaccinate an animal if it is pregnant, in poor health,
undergoing surgery, or particularly when also getting a
corticosteroid injection for allergies.
choice about vaccination rests with the human who has accepted
responsible guardianship. It does not rest with the veterinarian.
Another trend of the past few years is coercion of guardians into
procedures such as vaccination. This coercion may be blatant, such
as refusal to provide services, even emergency care, unless the
animal is 'current' on vaccines. Sometimes even critically ill
animals are vaccinated upon admission for treatment. More subtle
means include induction of fear and/or guilt by asserting (as an
authority figure) that companion animals are at risk if not
vaccinated yearly, and that failure to comply is evidence of lack of
caring. Tactics such as this can create feelings of guilt in the
guardian, leading to a fear-based decision to vaccinate an animal
that is not at risk. This is unethical, if not outright malpractice,
and refusal is an acceptable response." Says Dr. Don Hamilton
