Is your 'holistic' vet really holistic? A fresh look at the health risks associated with pet vaccines

(NaturalNews) If you frequent this website and own a pet, chances are that finding a good holistic veterinarian, if you have not already found one, is a top priority in your life. But with so many vets out there marketing themselves as holistic these days, how can you really know for sure whether or not the vet you choose really is holistic and has the best interests of your pet in mind?

Holistic veterinarian Will Falconer, D.V.M., who owns and operates the highly informative website Vital Animal, The Natural Path, addresses this question in a recent blog posting entitled "Vaccines and Vets: Is Your Holistic Vet Really Holistic?" In this powerful commentary, Falconer describes his journey from being a "holistic" vet in name only to becoming a truly holistic vet who learned the errors of his ways and corrected them.

As implied by the title of Falconer's posting, the primary issue at hand has to do with pet vaccines, which many vets, including many "holistic" vets, insist must be administered over and over again for optimal pet health. For years, Falconer held this same fallacious stance, believing that pets had to be vaccinated at yearly in order to keep up to date and in good health, that is, until he learned otherwise following some classes he took for his continuing education.

Falconer was enrolled in the very first Professional Course in Veterinary Homeopathy at the Pitcairn Institute of Veterinary Homeopathy in Eugene, Oregon, back in 1992 when he first learned that, contrary to popular belief, annual pet vaccines are not only ineffective but also dangerous. As he would quickly learn, pet vaccines, like human vaccines, are capable of actually creating disease, which could explain why many more pets these days are developing serious illnesses like cancer.

"Here I was, surrounded by other holistic veterinarians, some at it much longer than I, and our instructor, Dr. Richard Pitcairn, was showing us case after case illustrating the harm that was coming from vaccination," recalls Falconer about his awakening. "More significantly, he was also showing us that sick animals usually didn't get better without, at some point in their treatment, receiving a vaccinosis remedy."

Many pets are already vaccine damaged, and injecting them with more vaccines only exacerbates the problem

Vaccinosis, explains Falconer, is a term originally hatched by Dr. Compton Burnett, M.D., back in 1884, to describe the health damage caused by vaccines. And the remedy, it turns out, is typically not a general treatment but rather an individualized one that is customized to undo the original damage caused. Naturally, the same approach can be taken with vaccine-injured pets, that is, if pet owners are even aware of the fact that their sick animals might be vaccine damaged.

With this newfound understanding, Falconer quickly realized that annual pet re-vaccination is essentially a scam that puts pets at further risk of health damage. In truth, annual pet vaccination is merely a way for vets to maintain a steady cash flow and has nothing to do with actually keeping pets healthy. This is not to say that vets are out there intentionally harming animals, but this is precisely what they are doing, whether they realize it or not.

Unfortunately, many of the "holistic" vets Falconer has encountered in the years since have willfully ignored these eyeopening findings and continued to administer annual pet vaccines anyway. Even after attending a subsequent meeting of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association in which it was clearly delineated that annual pet vaccines can lead to hypothyroidism and other chronic diseases in pets, many of the "holistic" vets in attendance expressed their intention to continue administering them regardless of the facts. Most of the "holistic" vets polled in more recent surveys have indicated similar sentiments.

"As you set about navigating what seem like perfectly clear waters on your way to a vital animal, keep your eyes open for these dangerous attitude reefs," writes Falconer. "My profession is bemoaning the fact that veterinary visits are falling, yet refusing to step up to a responsible position on a damaging, useless procedure: repeating vaccinations throughout your animal's life."
