Has your pet been over-vaccinated?


(NaturalNews) Readers of Natural News are well aware that our philosophy regarding vaccines for humans is that fewer are better, and many are just not necessary.

The same philosophy holds true for your pets as well. And in fact, they too are likely getting far too many vaccines.

As reported by Catherine J. Frompovich for Natural Blaze, like humans, pets get an "inordinate" number of vaccines, and with many of the same adverse side effects.

Frompovich says that in her research networks she is fortunate to have a veterinarian, Dr. Patricia Jordan, who is very knowledgeable regarding vaccines, and readily shares the latest vaccine research information that affects humans and pets.

She observes that most likely the majority of pet owners don't pay much attention at all to how many vaccines their four-legged friends are receiving. But, she says, a 1999 Purdue study that examined the effects of vaccines on the endocrine and immune systems of dogs found that concern had been mounting with owners, breeders and vets that the bevy of vaccines given dogs cause immune-mediated diseases. In addition, the Vaccine Research Group at the Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine noted increased concern over the safety and frequency of pet vaccine administration.

Aberrant behavior like excessive licking of paws and the air

And while the researchers at the time did not find overt, outward signs of disease processes, the blood of all vaccinated dogs that were studied had significantly higher concentrations of antibodies directed against proteins that were also found in commercial vaccines as contaminants of the production process. No dogs studied that had not been vaccinated had similar rises in antibodies.

"Experiments in other animal species suggest that these autoantibodies might eventually cause diseases in the vaccinated animals, but these Beagle dogs will need to be followed longer to determine if this is the case," the Purdue researchers concluded.

Frompovich also referenced an article published November 2002 in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association that said in part, "Vaccination recommendations used to be considered a simple part of animal care, but now are considered complex and controversial."

In a separate report, the Pet Health & Nutrition Center quoted veterinarians who recounted instances of aberrant pet behavior following vaccinations. Dr. Dee Blanco noted that very often after vaccinating "healthy" pets, she witnessed excessive licking of the paws or of the air. In other cases, dogs and cats would become quite aggressive for several days. In addition, cats would develop urinary tract infections, "often within three months after their [annual] vaccination," Blanco said, adding, "If you step back, open your mind and heart, you'll start to see patterns of illness post-vaccination."

'There is no need' for vaccines on an annual basis

Dr. Christina Chambreau, another vet, told the Pet Health & Nutrition Center that "routine vaccinations" of pets "are probably the worst thing that we do for our animals." That's because vaccines actually cause all kinds of illnesses, though not always directly related to the vaccine itself. Indeed, she continued, vaccinating pets every year serves to undermine "the whole energetic well-being of our animals."

Overall, despite what the so-called "mainstream" veterinarian community pushes, Chambreau says that while animals don't seem to be "decimated" by one or two vaccines when they are young, the fact is "there is no need" for vaccinations on an annual basis. Secondly, Chambreau noted, regular vaccines "definitely cause chronic disease."

Chambreau says that as a homeopath it is practically impossible to cure an animal without first dealing with the health problems the animal has developed as a result of mass vaccination, "no matter what the species."

The nutrition center further cited a United Kingdom study which found that adverse events were diagnosed within three days of being vaccinated. A study of more than 2,000 dogs and cats by the Canine Health Concern showed a 1 in 10 risk of adverse reactions due to vaccines, a finding that contradicts the rate of adverse reactions reported by vaccine makers.
