Want to protect your pet from unnecessary injections? Have a personal pet vaccination waiver!

by L.J. Devon, Staff Writer

(NaturalNews) When a sick pet is taken to a conventional vet, there is a good chance that the animal will be given unnecessary interventions that could make it even sicker.

Homeopathic veterinarian Dr. Will Falconer knows that the best of intentions in veterinary care often get undermined by bad and untimely medicine. Many times, these interventions and strict vaccine due dates are what make animals sicker than they were before.

Dr. Falconer says,"You have a choice of partaking in this intervention or refusing it. You as a consumer can say 'Yes, please!' or 'No, thank you.' to everything offered to you on behalf of our animals."

Dr. Falconer says that every vaccination that is pushed has a built-in waiver, and it's right on the vaccine's label. The label, which almost always gets overlooked, will say, "Only for use in healthy dogs, cats, ferrets, etc."

Dr. Falconer points out that animals are often taken to the vet when they are sick, not healthy, thus exempting them from vaccines (which are intended only for healthy animals). Giving unnecessary injections to an animal while they are suffering can make the situation worse for them. Dr. Falconer recognizes this in his practice.

Dr. Falconer says that it's okay to question your veterinarian "if you are called on to vaccinate an animal who is clearly out of the realm of 'healthy.' " He says that many conventional vets vaccinate pets just because their vaccination due date has arrived. They make no exceptions or even consider whether the pet is suffering from poor appetite, fever or skin disease. In these cases, a vaccine can make a pet's situation worse.

Dr. Falconer questions, "Did that veterinarian really, in his/her best judgement, feel that this ill animal would benefit from a vaccination at this time?"

"I make note of it in the records, because, more often than not, the animal's illness gets worse from this point onwards. As a homeopathic veterinarian, I know I have to factor this in if I am to cure this patient," he states.

He reaffirms that the pet's owner is the animal's true caregiver. The owner has a right to refuse vaccinations at any time, despite "vaccine due dates." Dr. Falconer says the perfect response to a pushy conventional vet is, "I'm sorry, but this animal is not well, and therefore, should not receive a vaccine today."

He lists several reasons why he wouldn't give an animal a vaccine, whether they are "due" for one or not. These include allergic animals that scratch and chew themselves or animals that are taking prednisone, antihistamines, thyroid replacement drugs or immune suppressants like cyclosporine.

He really detests vaccines given to animals that are on seizure medicine to control epilepsy. He also avoids vaccination for animals on pain meds, ear meds, heart meds or antibiotics. He won't use vaccines when a diabetic animal is given insulin either.

Contemporary vets don't take the time to look at factors such as these. The intentions are good, but the connections just aren't being made.

That's why it's important for the pet's owner and true caregiver to have the final say when vets try to intervene with unnecessary injections. Dr. Falconer says, "It ultimately must be you who makes this decision not to vaccinate." He has seen too many examples of ill pets becoming sicker after vaccination and would like to prevent this from happening to other pets.
