Vaccination Guidelines for my practice

Vaccination Guidelines for my practice
Many owners and professionals have concern about the risks of excessive vaccination.  Please do not vaccinate  until we have discussed the pros and cons.  Rabies is required by law and because of the public health significance, must be done with an approved vaccine by a veterinarian.  We can attempt to avoid  possible negative effects of the vaccine using Reiki, Vaccine Detox and good timing. Call me before Rabies is due.

Current vaccines recommended by most veterinarians.
Every year (or more frequently) of your animal’s life, they are being injected with 4-8 viruses, in addition to Rabies.  Would you rebel if your doctor told you to now get MMR & DPT (Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Diptheria, Pertussis, Tetnus), Hib, Hepatitis, & Rabies every year of your life until you died, instead of only a few doses as a child?

Yearly, and occasionally every 3 years as recommended by the AVMA, the average conventional veterinarian now recommends your dog receive a combination injection of Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parainfluenza & Parvovirus. They, and kennels, require Bordetella (Kennel Cough) before boarding, and often recommend it routinely. They often suggestCoronavaccine, and Lyme disease vaccine.  Cats are given a combination of Panleukopenia (cat distemper, feline enteritis) and three upper respiratory diseases, Calici, Rhino, and Chlamydia. Highly recommended is Feline Leukemia, and available are Feline Infectious Peritonitis and now ringworm vaccine.

In 1992, Drs. Schultz & Phillips (Scripps Institute) write in Kirk’s Current Veterinary Therapy, Vol 11, page 205, saying “A practice that was started many years ago and that lacks scientific validity or verification is annual revaccinations. Almost without exception there is no immunological requirement for annual revaccination…The practice of annual vaccination in our opinion should be considered of questionable efficacy…”

What is the holistic perspective?
A healthy animal or person is unlikely to get sick (or very sick) even if exposed to infectious agents.  Ideally we would never vaccinate, feed wonderful fresh food and treat the early symptoms that indicate the body is out of balance. (If they do develop an infectious disease, it can usually be treated successfully with homeopathy).  Vaccinating an animal does not necessarily protect them from the very diseases for which they are vaccinated, and can make them weaker overall.

Are Vaccinations Potentially Harmful?
Yes. Holistic veterinarians are finding that vaccines are causing great harm to our animals (and ourselves).  To cure an animal we must use homeopathic remedies known to reverse vaccine related problems. Often, if vaccinated during treatment, the progress we are making is stopped. Conventional veterinarians are also reporting health problems due to vaccinations

The inserts that come with all vaccines say to use them only in healthy animals. So if you are taking your animal to a clinic or a kennel and there is not great health, then the vaccines should not, according to the manufacturer, be used at that time.

My vaccination guidelines
Rabies vaccination should be given at 5 months if possible (If not, as late as possible).  Be sure the animal is as healthy, and if under homeopathic treatment, check first with your homeopathic veterinarian. Repeat one year later, and then every three (unless your state requires it more often).

For the other diseases, there are several options, listed in decreasing acceptability.

1. Do not vaccinate.  Rely on the animal’s health. Treat if they get the disease. Use homeopathic nosodes if they are exposed and you fear for their health.

2. Give dogs one or two distemper and parvo vaccinations at 16 weeks (& poss. 8 weeks); or cats one or two panleukopenia vaccinations at 16 weeks (& poss. 8 weeks).  Then no more vaccinations, except legally required Rabies vaccination.

If your animal is highly exposed to an epidemic of a disease, and YOU feel they are at risk, you can then give a 200c strength of the appropriate homeopathic nosode one or two times.  Do not do this if they are being treated with remedies for other ailments. If they still get sick, then call for homeopathic treatment.

I will certainly work with your animals regardless or your choices about vaccination, even if you elect to fully vaccinate them.  I think this is an important issue to grapple with, and encourage you to read some of the following information, and listen to lectures by people like Dr. Ron Schultz or Dr. Jean Dodds. To have the rabies vaccine have a longer legal time span (it already gives lifetime protection) contribute to the Rabies Challenge Fund, a project run by Drs. Schultz and Dodds.

  1. Hi… My husband and I took in an orphaned kitten. He was we are thinking 3 weeks old at the time. He is now 6 weeks old. When he first came to us he had many fleas, we gave him baths and combed him with a flea comb… we never have used any chemical to get rid of them. We use World’s Best Cat Litter for him and he is litter trained now. He has filtered water out for him at all times. In the morning he gets 1 nugget of raw food (Primal brand) with goats milk poured over it and a sprinkle of (Immunity Daily Pet Supplement Organic Pet Superfood). In the afternoon we give him a quality no grain canned kitten food. In the Evening we give him 1 nugget of raw food (Primal brand). We repeat the next day. He has had no shots and we wormed him with (Worm Clear HomeoPet) for 2 weeks.
    We think he is deaf… he does not react at all to noices and we can sneak up behind him and he doesn’t react.
    He will be an inside only cat. We have no other animals but are looking to add a dog to our family at some point. What do you recommend for vaccinations… if any? I want to get him neutered in fear of him marking/spraying inside our home… at what age do you recommend we taking him to get neutered.
    Thank You!
    Trish and our Kitten Samuel thanks you too!

    • When he first came to us he had many fleas, we gave him baths and combed him with a flea comb… we never have used any chemical to get rid of them.
      – This is good for people to know as an example that you do not need chemicals.
      We use World’s Best Cat Litter for him and he is litter trained now.
      – That is one of the good litters.
      He has filtered water out for him at all times.
      – You may notice that he rarely drinks water, since healthy cats do not drink very often.

      In the morning he gets 1 nugget of raw food (Primal brand) with goats milk poured over it and a sprinkle of (Immunity Daily Pet Supplement Organic Pet Superfood). In the afternoon we give him a quality no grain canned kitten food. In the Evening we give him 1 nugget of raw food (Primal brand). We repeat the next day.
      – That diet is fine. Keep experimenting. Purchase the Healthy Animal’s Journal to see what really works the best for him.

      He has had no shots and we wormed him with (Worm Clear HomeoPet) for 2 weeks.
      –I do not recommend using worm medicine unless you have a stool sample done. While combination homeopathic remedies are usually ok, they can stimulate the chronic vital force illness and cause some symptoms.

      We think he is deaf… he does not react at all to noices and we can sneak up behind him and he doesn’t react. He will be an inside only cat.
      —-If he continues to be deaf, it is good to keep him inside.

      We have no other animals but are looking to add a dog to our family at some point.
      —-Your cat should do fine with a dog.

      What do you recommend for vaccinations… if any?
      —-Read the vaccination articles and blogs about vaccines. Find an integrative veterinarian with whom to work who recommends minimal vaccines and will neuter him without all the vaccines. I usually say to neuter at 9 months or if the urine begins to have a strong odor or there is any aggression or marking.

      Thanks for reading these articles and learning more and more.
