Dog and Cat Vaccines are Not Harmless Preventive Medicine

Are you vaccinating your dog too much?

Garlic for Dogs - Health Benefits, Preparation, Use, Safe Dosage 


Quote: Dr.Patricia Jordan DVM
"Same for veterinary medical doctors NADA, NOT A THING. So now we can all understand why they get paid the BIG BUCKS to pander the vaccines for the drug companies.......they know not what they do!"


Appropriately Immunize your puppy 

Health bennifit of Vitamin C  

Could these vaccines not only be unnecessary, but actually harmful to your pet’s health?

Additionally, there are no adjustments in dose for size or age of your animal. Your five-pound Miniature Pinscher receives the same size vaccine as your 150-pound Rottweiler. Your 10-pound house cat gets the same amount as a 400-pound lion.

All of these vaccines are overwhelming your 

Vaccine reactions are at an all-time high.
A study of more than 2,000 cats and dogs in the United Kingdom by Canine Health Concern showed a 1 in 10 risk of adverse reactions from vaccines. This contradicts what the vaccine manufacturers report for rates of adverse reactions, which is “less than 15 adverse reactions in 100,000 animals vaccinated” (0.015 percent).

Additionally, adverse reactions of small breeds are 10 times higher than large breeds, suggesting standard vaccine doses are too high for smaller animals.

Why veterinarians & pet owners don't see eye to eye.

I hear many pet owners proudly say they vaccinate minimally … which for most puppies, means four or five times for the same vaccine before they’re a year of age.
There’s nothing minimal about this.
And when I share some information on current vaccine research with you, you’ll agree with me.
But first, it’s critical for any dog owner to understand that any vaccine given at any point in a dog’s life has the ability to kill him or cause serious harm.

    You know vaccinations are grossly over-provided in our broken system of veterinary medicine. The pushing of vaccinations by Dr. White Coat throughout your animal’s lifedoesn’t add to her immunity. Not even a little. That’s what we know from veterinary immunologists whose life’s work is measuring and quantifying the immune response. And you know that vaccines are harmful. Chronic disease often follows vaccination, even a single vaccination. Read more 


    Aluminum-containing adjuvants are used in certain vaccines to promote an immune response.  Veterinary vaccines that contain aluminum include rabies, leptospirosis and Lyme.  The World Health Organization named aluminum hydroxide, a component of most of the currently used veterinary vaccines, a grade 3 out of 4 carcinogen, with 4 being the most carcinogenic.
    In humans, the vaccines that contain aluminum adjuvants are: DTP (diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis vaccine), DTaP (diphtheria-tetanus-acellular pertussis vaccine), some but not all Hib (Haemophilus influenzae type b) conjugate vaccines, Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, Hepatitis B vaccines, all combination DTaP, Tdap, Hib, or Hepatitis B vaccines, Hepatitis A vaccines, Human Papillomavirus vaccine, Anthrax vaccine and Rabies vaccine.

    Older Dogs and the Onset of Cataracts
    Wendell O. Belfield, DVM, a pioneer of nutritional therapy for pets, cites human studies that show vitamin C improves the vision of elderly patients suffering from cataracts. He describes one veterinarian who successfully treated hundreds of dogs with cataracts and related eye conditions using injected and oral vitamin E and selenium.
    In addition, the famous vitamin E researcher Dr. Wilfrid Shute told Dr. Belfield how he treated a champion Doberman Pinscher that stopped siring and went blind with cataracts at age seven. After a few weeks of taking 300 International Units (IUs) of vitamin E daily, the dog sired several litters of puppies and, within three months, his cataracts cleared up.

    Quote: No to microchips, no to vaccines, no to ear crops and declaws, no to early spay and neuters, no to commercially processed pet foods, no to drugs to treat vaccine induced diseases, no to toxic chemicals for pest and parasite control....find a naturopathic vet and say yes to natural rearing! Dr.Patricia Jordan DVM

    Pet Identification: Microchip vs. Tattoo

    Health Concerns Related to Microchips
    The primary concern any time something foreign is introduced into the body -- whether it’s a microchip or, say, a metal plate to repair a fractured bone, or a transplanted organ – is the potential for the body to reject the foreign material.
    There have been documented cases in veterinary medicine of sarcomas or fibrosarcomas (soft tissue tumors) developing at microchip injection sites. Research shows that between 1996 and 2006, between 0.8 and 10.2 percent of laboratory animals developed malignant tumors around or near implanted microchips. There are also two documented cases of chip-related malignancies in dogs.
    My recommendation, if you’re considering chipping your pet, is to assess how much risk there is that she will ever get out of your sight. If you have an indoor-only cat, for example, or a well-trained (responsive) dog that is always on a leash outdoors, I believe the potential risks of microchipping outweigh the benefits.

      Pumpkin Seeds: A Natural Solution For Worms
      Feeding Directions
      Pumpkin seeds can be fed whole as a treat for your dog. Don’t feed him the salted seeds from the grocery store; find some raw green, organic seeds instead. If your dog doesn’t enjoy them as a treat, you can grind them in a coffee grinder or Magic Bullet and add them to his meals. Give him a teaspoon per ten pounds of body weight once or twice a day until he’s rid of the parasites.

      Lipomas And Other Canine Lumps And Bumps
      I recommend a natural diet, filtered water, no drugs, chemicals, herbicides, pesticides or vaccines on or around my patients. Treatment choices include classical homeopathy, gemmotherapy, aromatherapy, bovine colostrum, fatty acid supplementation and glandular therapy.

      The three-year-old Border Collie chewed on some plants as the family took a walk through the Horsetooth Reservoir. Shortly after the walk, the dog didn't look well. He was taken to the vet. 
      According to the vet, the plant the dog was chewing on was deadly water hemlock. In July, the plant thrives in wetlands, marshes and river banks across America, blooming with tiny clusters of white flowers. A few bites of the plant can kill a large dog in less than two hours. 

      If your dog does eat hemlock, it's necessary to induce vomiting and get him to the vet immediately.
