Dangers of Flea Medication~

Young animals are not big enough or strong enough to defend against the chemicals and may end up with brain damage, kidney damage and nerve damage if the product is not applied correctly.

Thimerosal In Rabies Vaccines

There has been concern that mercury poisoning in young children is a direct cause of autism and this link has also been shown in animal research. These concerns are based on the similarities between the symptoms of mercury poisoning and autism.

The Bordetella Vaccine Fraud ~

Every once in a while I get an Email from a puppy owner telling me about the reactions their puppy is having to a vaccination and asking me what to do. This always prompts me to go looking for more ways to drive home the importance of learning about these poisons and their effects on our dogs health. I figure if I say it enough and quote enough specialists that hopefully ALL my new puppy owners will take it more seriously. In the end, vaccination for Bordetella is at best fruitless and at worst, a pathetic fraudulence at the hands of veterinarians and vaccine manufacturers. It is up to you whether or not your dog receives this vaccination and that is not overstating the obvious. Sadly, most pet owners are aware of this but choose vaccination because they feel they are at the mercy of boarding kennels, training schools and veterinarians.

Rabies Vaccination ~ 13 Ways To Vaccinate More Safely

Yes, here is another article on vaccinations. I feel there is just so much that is up to us to learn so we can TELL our vets what we want, after all they work for us and are supposed to do what we want them to right? With the Blue Lacys carrying the blue gene and making them even more susceptible than your average dog it is up to us to inform ourselves about the most important, life changing drugs we will administer to our dogs! Even a matter of life and death in many cases. An over abundance or wrong type of vaccination will affect the quality and life span of your dogs life. Please keep in mind that your average vet has little to no vaccination education, so they are just following the manufacturers recommendation.

Titers Testing ~

Why test? The parvovirus/distemper test can help you or others (vets, groomers, kennel owners, etc.) determine if your dog requires additional vaccination, and may save your dog unnecessary shots. It is especially useful when making a decision about vaccinating an animal with unknown vaccination history, or for determining if puppies have received immunity from vaccination (more below).

Great Article On Vaccines

As a Homeopathic practitioner and holistic breeder of Australian Cattle Dogs for the past 16 years, I believe that the first thing that needs changing is the myth that vaccines are not harmful. The bodies of animals and humans have a tremendous capacity to detoxify poisons but they have a limit!

History Of Recommended Vaccine Schedule

The increased evidence linking over-vaccination to acute and chronic diseases in dogs has finally caused a mainstream conviction that vaccination protocols are not a one-size-fits-all healthcare decision. Vaccinations now are also suspected of creating vulnerability to illnesses and chronic conditions such as anemia, arthritis, seizures, allergies, gastrointestinal and thyroid disorders, and cancer. Vaccination Protocols ~

As I am sure you know by now, I am constantly doing research and reading up on the best things for my dogs, so the way I do things is constantly changing. Here is my latest advice where vaccinations are concerned. Of course you should do your own research and decide what is best for you, but I know many of you don't have the hours to spend in front of your computer that I do. If you have just gotten a puppy from me you already know this, but if it has been a while or you don't have one of my pups I am sure some of this will be new to you.

Dr. Ronald Schultz, one of two experts (Jean Dodd being the other), says to get strong titers test once and then presume lifetime immunity for parvo and distemper. Even if titers weaken over the years, most experts believe that the body has cellular memory.

Vaccinating Small Dogs: Risks Vets Aren’t Revealing

At last, a smoking gun … discovered pointing directly at Chihuahuas, Dachshunds, Maltese, Yorkies and other small dogs … in fact, pointed at all dogs receiving multiple vaccines during one clinic visit.

Another Perfect Example ~

Just another example of the harm vaccinations are doing to our dogs, let alone repeated ones. Perfect reason why we don't give this vaccine and only follow the Jean Dodd vaccination protocol around here. All new puppy owners are provided with a copy of her vaccination schedule as well as a detailed explanation of why you do and don't for each vaccination. A great thing to take in hand to your vet when you take your new puppy in for a checkup, after all it is very hard to argue with the foremost authority on vaccinations. I also added a clause to my health guarantee that nul and voids it if the puppy is over vaccinated. This way new owners have a bit more courage to just say "no" when their vet gets too insistent on vaccinating again. This vaccine not only sends adult dogs into kidney failure it often kills puppies.*
