*Administer Rabies vaccine according to state law
Homeopathic veterinarians and other holistic practitioners have maintained for some time that vaccinations do more harm than they provide benefits. Vaccinations represent a major assault on the body's immune system. Attenuated organisms or chemically killed viruses or bacteria are injected directly into the bloodstream, an unnatural route of infection. This profound insult, avoiding the body's first line of defenses, and flooding the system with millions of organisms or viral particles, stresses the immune system in a way not of natures design. This insult causes irregularities and abnormalities in the immune system which then manifests as chronic diseases in animals.
These chronic diseases range from life-threatening conditions such as autoimmune crises to conditions destroying the quality of life of an animal as in chronic skin allergies. What we are now seeing are generations of over-vaccinated animals and these current offspring are suffering the penalty of this medical abuse. In an attempt to control a naturally occurring process of population control and survival of the fittest, the medical establishment has convinced people that mass inoculations are for the good of all, overlooking the health of the individual. Where vaccinations have helped in eradicating or reducing the incidence of severe, acute disease processes, the result has been to plague humanity with more insidious, chronic diseases that are much more difficult to treat and that lower the quality of life for many individual animals and people. In all of this, there needs to be BALANCE, and the following are my recommendations for vaccinating or not vaccinating and some comments about diet. 1. Puppies under three months of age should not be vaccinated. Vaccinations are much more stressful on the underdeveloped immune system.
Also, these vaccinations are much less effective at providing immunity before three months of age. If you feel you must vaccinate, do so with one vaccination of Distemper at three months, followed by a vaccination for Parvovirus at four months of age, and stop with that. If you can't find a single Distemper vaccine use the Distemper-measles combination. Use killed vaccines only.
2. Puppies and kittens can be given homeopathic nosodes beginning at three weeks of age, if there is a potential for exposure to Distemper, Parvovirus, or Panleukopenia. These nosodes can be used until vaccinations are given or continued periodically for the first year of life, if vaccinations are not given. Common sense should be used in avoiding exposure of very young animals to other, possible unhealthy, animals of the same species.
3. Booster vaccinations are completely unnecessary. Studies are now showing that these vaccinations are effective for many years and most probably for life. Vaccinated animals do not need any boosters. Homeopathic nosodes can be given periodically if you are concerned or if you think your animals live a high risk, lifestyle.
4. Rabies Vaccinations should be given as dictated by state laws. Lyssin, the homeopathic nosode, should be given within a few hours after the vaccination. Clearly, the rabies vaccination is effective for many years more than state laws require booster vaccination.
5. Booster vaccinations can cause SEVERE setbacks when an animal is being treated homeopathically for chronic problems. They can completely erase any progress that has been made towards improving an animal's health.
6. My personal recommendation is NOT to vaccinate at all. The best road to good health is feeding a diet rich in fresh foods, raw meats for the carnivores, and avoiding vaccinations and allopathic medications. Antibiotics and other allopathic drugs should only be used in situations where their use is clearly indicated, and this should be only in potentially, life-threatening situations. Every time you suppress a symptom the body produces, you are potentially lowering the health status of the body system. Treating with the correctly prescribed, homeopathic remedy, herbs, or other non-invasive therapies, not of a chemical nature, will enhance your health and your companions health.

Rabie Vaccines By law, an animal must be vaccinated against rabies every three years. To protect your pet, you can request a homeopathic antidote to minimize the side effects of vaccine damage from Dr. Charlie Loops DVM. The cost is $6.00 for single doses and $15 for 1/4 ounce bottles for repeated dosing. I believe that sick animals or animals with a compromised immune system can get an exemption to rabie vaccines. Check with your local animal control authorities.
Correctly prescribed homeopathic remedies can often undo the damage caused by vaccines Homeopathy is noted for its success to antidote or remove the toxic effects of vaccines and to re-establish balance in the organism and restore health. Certain homeopathic remedies taken after vaccination can minimize vaccine damage. A professional homeopathic vet should be consulted for more information.by Dr Charles E Loops DVM
"The canine rattlesnake vaccine comprises venom components from Crotalus atrox (western diamondback). Although a rattlesnake vaccine may be potentially useful for dogs that frequently encounter rattlesnakes, currently we are unable to recommend this vaccine because of insufficient information regarding the efficacy of the vaccine in dogs. Dogs develop neutralizing antibody titers to C. atrox venom, and may also develop antibody titers to components of other rattlesnake venoms, but research in this area is ongoing. Owners of vaccinated dogs must still seek veterinary care immediately in the event of a bite, because 1) the type of snake is often unknown; 2) antibody titers may be overwhelmed in the face of severe envenomation, and 3) an individual dog may lack sufficient protection depending on its response to the vaccine and the time elapsed since vaccination. According to the manufacturer, to date, rare vaccinated dogs have died following a bite when there were substantial delays (12-24 hours) in seeking treatment. Recommendations for booster vaccination are still under development, but it appears that adequate titers do not persist beyond one year after vaccination. Adverse reactions appear to be low and consistent with those resulting from vaccination with other products available on the market. The product licence is currently conditional as efficacy and potency have not been fully demonstrated. Based on existing evidence, the UC Davis VMTH does not currently recommend routine vaccination of dogs for rattlesnake envenomation, and the vaccine is not stocked by our pharmacy.
WHAT VETS DON'T TELL YOU ABOUT DOBERMAN VACCINES
'Shock to the System by Catherine O’Driscoll is a sequel to 'What Vets Don't Tell You About Vaccines'. It covers the latest information on the vaccine issue, and puts the other pieces of the puzzle into the picture. Diet, environmental toxins, pharmaceuticals and stress all play a part in the health of companion animals. This book will make you cry and aware of the scam that is the mainstay of the veterinary field. It is well researched and written. The truth about the terrible suffering of pets and their owners and what can be done to protect your animals from the drug companies and ignorant vets. This information can save your animals and give you the facts to present to your vet if he/she does not keep up with current science. A must for anyone who loves animals and wants to keep them safe and healthy.
Catherine O'Driscoll is the founder of Canine Health Concern in the UK. Canine Health Concern offers a certified study programme – the Foundation in Canine Health care – to help you to take good care of your dogs. This programme also has another aim, and this is to build a worldwide network of Animal Advocates – people who understand the scientific and experiential facts about canine health care, and who are not influenced by the advertising propaganda of big business.
Vets are, sadly, educated in colleges which must accept funding from commercial concerns. Often this funding is given on the understanding that the sponsor’s commercial message is respected within the curriculum. For example, ask your vet how many hours or days were spent discussing canine dietary requirements, and whether the lecturer was independent of commercial propaganda or, indeed, whether the lecturer was an employee of a pet food company. You will find the answers somewhat disconcerting. Become, instead, your own expert – and enjoy life with your animal friends, without constantly having to tend to illnesses.
Canine Health Concern’s education programme is based upon ten years of research; our work is sufficiently credible to be featured in a prime time TV documentary – World in Action. Catherine O’Driscoll’s book, ‘What Vets Don’t Tell You About Vaccines’ is an official best-seller that forms the basis of continuing research in the scientific and veterinary communities.
Since 1994, Canine Health Concern (CHC) has been exposing the truth about the influence of big business on your pets – so that your dogs can live long and healthy lives.
Viera Scheibner, PhD - "I did not find it difficult to conclude that there is no evidence whatsoever that vaccines or any kind are effective in preventing the infectious diseases they are supposed to prevent. Further, adverse effects are amply documented and are far more significant to public health than any adverse effects of infectious diseases. Immunizations not only did not prevent any infectious diseases, they caused more suffering and more deaths than has any other human activity n the entire history of medical intervention. It will be decades before the mopping-up after the disasters caused by childhood vaccination will be completed. "
Bookshelf: Vaccine Controversy Vaccinations DO cause temporary and permanent damage to children every year in this country, and many of the diseases against which we are vaccinated are not as frightening as the damage caused by the vaccinations themselves. If it has ever even occurred to you that the medical system is not infallible, these books will open your eyes to a reality that most people would prefer to ignore.
THE BIG SCAM~ DOBERMAN RABIES VACCINATION
All mandatory rabies vaccination programs are colorable law, in that they have been passed and mandated upon the pet owning public by certain vested interest groups. Who are these groups? First and foremost are veterinarians, in general, and veterinarian medical organizations. Second are the local animal control personnel, bureaucrats and politicians. What are their reasons? GREED, POWER AND CONTROL. Both these large powerful interest groups stand to benefit greatly by having rabies mandated by colorable law."
"Veterinarians receive a large percentage of both their gross income and profit from vaccines given in the office. On average vaccines cost 60 to 95 cents per dose and are charged to the client at $15 to $25 per injection and substantially more in the large cities. Therefore, if veterinarians lobby to have a colorable law passed to give rabies vaccine every year that enhances their financial picture."
"The vaccines, particularly rabies, are a political and economic scam being forced upon pet owners because they do not know the truth."
Vaccinations in Veterinary Medicine: Dogs and Catsby Don Hamilton, DVMA practice that was started many years ago and that lacks scientific validity or verification is annual re-vaccinations. Almost without exception there is no immunologic requirement for annual re vaccinations. Immunity to viruses persists for years or for the life of the animal. Successful vaccination to most bacterial pathogens produces an immunologic memory that remains for years, allowing an animal to develop a protective anamnestic (secondary) response when exposed to virulent organisms. Only the immune response to toxins requires boosters (e.g. tetanus toxin booster, in humans, is recommended once every 7-10 years). And no toxin vaccines are currently used for dogs and cats. Furthermore, re vaccination with most viral vaccines fails to stimulate an anamnestic (secondary) response as a result of interference by existing antibody (similar to maternal antibody interference). The practice of annual vaccination in our opinion should be considered of questionable efficacy unless it is used as a mechanism to provide an annual physical examination or is required by law (i.e., certain states require annual re vaccination for rabies).
The Dangers of Vaccinations and the Advantages of Nosodes for Disease Preventionby Donna Starita Mehan DVM"Routine" vaccination, as it is practiced today, is not always effective (especially in the case of the feline leukemia vaccine), and frequently has adverse side-effects, either short or long term. With the use of multivalent (combination: 4 in 1, 6 in 1, etc.) vaccines that are repeated year after year, the frequency and severity of these side-effects in our pets has increased dramatically.
Not surprisingly, most of the problems involve the immune system. After all, the immune system is what vaccines are designed to stimulate. But they do so in a very unnatural way that can overwhelm and confuse the immune system. The body may overreact to normally harmless substances (allergies, especially flea allergies and other skin problems), or even produce antibodies to itself (autoimmune disease). At the same time, the body may be sluggish in responding to those things that it should reject, such as common viruses, bacteria, fungi, and parasites. This can result in increased susceptibility to acute infections (such as ear infections in dogs, bladder infections in cats), chronic tapeworm problems, or in more degenerative cases, cancer. Homeopathic Nosodes: a Better Alternative
Hypertrophic Osteodystrophy (HOD)Hypertrophic osteodystrophy causes lameness and extreme pain in young growing dogs, usually of a large breed. Great danes, German shepherds, dobermans, retrievers and weimaraners are examples of breeds that may be affected by this condition. It appears to occur in weimaraners as a vaccine reaction and this may also affect mastiffs and great Danes. In this case, it usually occurs a few days after vaccination and may appear to be worse than the "average" case on radiographs.
HOD usually shows up as an acute lameness, often seeming to affect all four legs simultaneously. Affected dogs may stand in a "hunched up" stance or refuse to stand up at all. They may have a fever but this is not consistently present. They usually have painful swellings around the lower joints on the legs. Some puppies will die from this disease, some suffer permanent disability but many recover later. The disease is so painful that many owners elect to euthanize the puppy rather than watch it suffer, despite the reasonably good chance for recovery, long term. Affected dogs may be so ill that they refuse to eat.
Testimonials of bad vaccine reaction "Tommy was in excellent condition and was a Champion show dog who was Top Dobermann in the UK 2000. In May 2002 we took Tommy to the Vet for blood tests to see whether he needed his Booster and the Vet advised we should give the Leptospirosis vaccine as this was safe and would definitely be needed. On his return home, Tommy was very quiet and went and lay upstairs on his own. When we tried to get him to come downstairs, he had problems getting up off the bed and was unco-ordinated. He then tried to get on the bed in the other bedroom and when we tried to help him, he fell back screaming in pain and could not move." read more
Do you suspect your animal to be a victim of vaccine damage? HOMEOPATHY CAN MINIMIZE AND REPAIR THE DAMAGE CAUSED BY VACCINES
Homeopathy is renowned for its success to antidote or remove the toxic effects of vaccines and to re-establish balance in health. Certain homeopathic remedies such as thuja and silica taken before and after vaccination can protect from vaccine damage. Please consult a professional homeopath for more information. (see list of holistic and homeopathic veterinarians) Many families are now also using homeopathy 'nosodes' as an alternative to vaccines for their children and their pets
Over-Vaccinating"This morning I ran into a frantic lady, who recently lost her 5 yr. old dachsie, (died of complications due to back paralysis), which she claimed was due to having her dog vaccinated for rabies every year. She said she once worked for a Vet, and said she also had pamphlets that claim many vets over vaccinate these small dogs for the sake of making extra $$$$. She also said this breed is far too small to intake yearly vaccinations and this will eventually paralyse them as it did hers."
TAKE THE TITER TEST Testing a dog’s serum antibody titers can prevent over vaccinating. Taking blood for an annual titer test, to check a dog’s level of immune defenses, should replace the habit of vaccinating dogs annually whether or not they need it.
VACCINATING DOGS AND CATS T J Dunn, Jr. DVM If you choose to vaccinate your own dog or cat, there are a few things you should consider first. Remember...any animal could have an adverse reaction to any vaccine. The probability is small, but if it happens, your pet could be in big trouble...fast! Adverse reactions from vaccinations are rare but do happen. The worst case scenario occurs when the dog or cat has what is termed an ANAPHYLACTIC REACTION. These hypersensitivity reactions cause a number of physiologic disturbances within the body that result in low blood pressure, slow heart rate and depressed breathing rate. The pet goes into a SHOCK REACTION...
Identify and Treat the Causes of Disease With today's increasingly toxic environment, our pets are coming down with serious and inexplicable health problems. In many cases, the reason for our animal's health problem is due to an overload of toxins entering the dog's body via his paws, breathing cleaning and other chemicals in your home or kennel, from chemicals sprayed on your lawn, in parks, on golf courses, everywhere you take your dog there are toxic chemicals. Chemicals are even included in your pet's food, both dry and canned food unless you have wisely researched and chosen food that does not contain chemicals. Dogs are extremely sensitive to these chemicals as are most animals including us.
Brandon Brooks, DVM - "Many (if not most) Over The Counter (OTC) or non-prescription flea control products are very toxic to cats and kittens- especially the ones only approved for use in dogs. Many people mistakenly buy these for their pet (it's not always their fault, the companies that make them want you to buy it, they don't really care about the dangers involved) so it pays to be extra careful when buying flea control products."
