Are Vaccines Killing Your Dog?

Are Vaccines Killing Your Dog?

Wait a minute! Aren’t vaccines supposed to “protect” our pets (and children) from getting a virus or dis-ease?
This is surely what we have all been indoctrinated into believing over the years. But where are the studies and/or the research? The proof?

There is none! Search for yourself…

Daily, veterinarians and animal naturopaths are seeing quite the opposite of animals protected from disease. In fact, more and more, pets are presenting with allergies, itchy and/or infected ears, yeast infections, eczema, atopy,arthritis, bone diseases, digestive problems, IBS, autoimmune diseases, organ failure, neurological and behavioral problems, cancer and death! Why?

If you were to look at the history and veterinary records on these dogs, you would find that the one thing they all have in common is that they have all been faithfully being vaccinated and boostered!

The Facts

The fundamental dilemma is that vaccination in effect leads to weakening of the immune system and the gene pool, and thus the overall health of a given population. One way this occurs is by allowing individuals to live that would otherwise succumb to disease, such disease being a natural means to “cleanse” and thus strengthen that population. Natural Immunity. This naturally presents an ethical quandary these days (our understanding of native or aboriginal thinking suggests that letting weak individuals die was implicitly understood to be not only acceptable but proper at one time – survival of the fittest).

Veterinarians are faced with a challenge when dealing with acute diseases, most of which are brought on due to improper nutrition (the feeding of processed, commercial pet food) and the very vaccines they suggest all puppies and kittens should receive to “protect” them. However, in reality, what is happening is the exchange for a lifetime of chronic dis-ease.

Vaccinations are not a natural means of exposing our pets to viruses. In nature, usually the animal would only be exposed to viruses one at a time and via the body’s innate immune system which is housed in mucus membranes in the nose, mouth, intestines or eyes. In nature, the body is much more successful at responding to only one antigen at at time and is well able to produce immunity without adverse effects or dealing with all the foreign additives and adjuvants.

Vaccinosis or VID (vaccine induced disease) is rampant!

Vaccinosis is a dis-ease entity that may be introduced through vaccinating animals or people. Once vaccinosis develops, there is a disturbance in the bodies vital forces that leads to imbalance and lowered electrical frequencies which produce symptoms of chronic disease that can be very difficult (and often impossible) to totally reverse.

Talk to any veterinarian – allopathic/conventional or so called holistic practice who has been in practice for 10 years or more what they see in the animals they are treating day in and day out. Ask them how much of what they see is chronic disease, incurable conditions, and a plethora of allergic maladies which seem to plague all veterinary practices.

I worked with allopathic veterinarians for quite a few years and personally became frustrated and depressed with the pat prescriptions of steroids and antibiotics for just about every ailment.

Veterinarians are not taught health care they are taught disease management through the use of synthetic medications.  They only know how to palliate or suppress the symptoms, they are not able to cure or restore the animal to health.

I was seeing our client’s puppies (who came in for their first puppy shots at 6 – 8 weeks of age) way too often! Within weeks and sometimes days after their vaccination, the puppies (and kittens) were coming back in with itchy skin and ears or chronic runny stools. Always, the same treatment and drugs were always prescribed and it would be a month or two and they were back for more as the puppy or now mature dog began to be itchy or sick again as soon as the medications ran out. Eventually they would be diagnosed with “allergies” or certain food intolerance so the  medications were switched and dosages ramped up. Years would go by with this same dogs and cats coming in at least once a month with continued health problems. By the time these animals were 4 to 6 years old they were in some kind of organ failure or experiencing seizures or had thyroid imbalance, diabetes  and/or cancer. Conventional medicine was unable to cure the animal, its immune system had been compromised early on from vaccinations (and improper nutrition in the form of kibble) which were continually recommended and administered by the way, even in the pet’s dis-eased state.

Politically Correct

In an attempt to control a naturally occurring process of population control and survival of the fittest, the veterinary (and medical ) establishment has convinced people that mass inoculations are for the good of all!  Overlooking of course the health of the individual.

While we have all been brain washed into believing the lie that vaccinations have eradicated or reduced the incidence of severe, acute disease processes and viruses, the result has been just the opposite – they have only served to plague humanity and the animals with more insidious, chronic diseases that are much more difficult to treat and that lower the quality of life for many animals AND people.

The best road to good health is feeding a species appropriate, raw diet rich of fresh foods, (raw meat and bones for the carnivores), and avoiding vaccinations and allopathic medications.

Antibiotics and other allopathic drugs should only be used in times of potentially, life-threatening situations.

Ultimately, the choice about to vaccinate or not to vaccinate rests with the human who have accepted responsible ownership of the animal. It does not rest with the veterinarian! Sadly, with some veterinarians; It has become a trend over the past few years to use fear tactics and coercion to vaccinate and of course re-vaccinate on a regular basis.

Think About This

Please remember that vaccines compromise the immune system and remember that every time you suppress a symptom the body produces with an antibiotic or medication, you are lowering the health status of the entire body system.

However, please know that proper, raw species specific nutrition and correctly using natural remedies such as herbs, essential oils, homeopathy, or other non-invasive therapies, not of a chemical nature, you will enhance the body’s immune system by aiding it in balancing and raising the frequencies which strengthen the body to heal its self. So, I ask you,

1. Why Destroy your pet’s immune system ?
2. Why use Toxic antibiotics that may cause yeast infections ?
3. Why let your animal suffer by only tricking the brain into thinking the dis-ease is gone when it has only been suppressed?
4. Why use barbiturates for pain relief when there are a number of safe natural and effective alternatives ?

I hope and pray that this article and the others here on The Whole Dog will help you to think twice and do more research before heeding the vaccination reminder card or your veterinarian’s advice to put toxic chemicals or medications in or on your pet. Be informed, be educated. THINK for yourself!
