Below is a letter written Dr. Patricia Jordan, veterinary naturopath to a reporter who was writing on the topic of behavior and socialization of dogs from a veterinarians perspective. Sadly, the reporter was not interested in what Dr Jordan had to say but hopefully you are.
I do want my readers to know that personally, as a naturopath I see vaccines as toxins that disregulate the immune system just as Dr. Jordan has stated. I personally adhere to the natural rearing principles that includes a raw diet and no toxins which obviously means no vaccines as long as you can avoid them. So even though Dr. Jordan will reluctantly stand by the minimum vaccine protocol, I can not in good conscience do so as I believe it causes harm to the animals and that they do not in any way convey immunity.

How Vaccines Affect Both Socialization and Behavior in Dogs
By Patricia Jordan, DVM, VND
I understand you are writing on the topic of behavior and socialization in dogs and want to hear from veterinarians. My experience of being a practicing veterinarian for over 25 years is matched by others such as Dr. Stephen Blake (37 years) and Dr. Richard Pitcairn (40 years) of watching vaccines result in disease in the animals, including behavioral changes.
University California at Davis recently finished studies proving the development of anger, aggression, and anxiety in both animals and humans following vaccinations. This would not be surprising as the mercury in vaccines (yes it is still in there) and aluminum are both neurotoxins and in combination synergetic. Also the viruses, both intentional and contaminants, are known to affect neural tissues, aluminum opens the blood brain barrier, allows mercury, aluminum and viruses into the brain and the ensuing inflammation that develops is well, encephalitis!
A French study showed both in animals and humans the more viruses that are collected (the vaccine being the best way to infect the body with viruses) the more apathetic the individual becomes.
The rabies vaccine and others are associated with encephaleptogens and this causes seizures.
The aluminum from vaccines sequesters in the hippocampus of the brain which is the seat of endocrine regulation and even disregulated endocrine systems lead to behavioral changes.
I have seen plenty of behavioral changes following vaccination and << Read Article >>
