This is a list of vaccine reactions that can happen immediately following vaccination and some do not present themselves until later in life:
Immunosuppression, behavioral changes, vitiligo, weight loss, reduced milk production, lameness, granulomas/abscesses, hives, facial edema, atopy, respiratory disease, allergic uveitis (blue eye).
SEVERE REACTIONS TRIGGERED BY VACCINES:
Vaccine injection site sarcomas, anaphylaxis, arthritis, polyarthritis, HOD (hypertrophy osteodystrophy), autoimmune hemolytic anemia, immune mediated thrombocytopenia (IMTP), hemolytic disease of the newborn (neonatal isoerythrolysis), thyroiditis, glomerulonephritis, disease or enhanced disease which with the vaccine was designed to prevent, myocarditis, post vaccinal encephalitis or polyneuritis, seizures, abortion, congenital anomalies, embryonic/fetal death, failure to conceive.
The Disease Parvovirus is a common disease that appeared throughout the developed world in the 1970’s as a direct result of vaccination. Being a canine form of Feline Viral Enteritis, it is thought that the virus ‘jumped’ through dogs coming in contact with vaccinated cat’s infectious stool, or mutated during the production of the distemper vaccine which was cultivated on infected cats kidneys, (very similar reports have been made regarding the polio vaccine in humans). The disease is only of real concern in puppies, as 90% of dogs over the age of 8 weeks will survive infection without complication, with death in mature healthy dogs being almost unheard of. While mature dogs usually only experience a type of diarrhea and enteritis, young puppies are at serious risk of heart failure and chronic cardiac problems.
Vaccinated puppies don’t respond as well to treatment as unvaccinated puppies. Due to the seriousness of symptoms produced by this disease in young pups, an experienced veterinary homeopath should be consulted quickly to determine the most appropriate remedy. While awaiting a consultation, Aconite 30C can be given orally every two hours. It is critical to avoid dehydration, and if this is feared, China 6C or 30C may be given every hour in a little filtered water.
REASONS TO VACCINATE FOR PARVO:
The parvo vaccine is effective if given after 16 weeks. If given before this age, the maternal antibodies are likely to block the vaccine.
- REASONS NOT TO VACCINATE FOR PARVO:
- Vaccinating for parvo keep the disease in the environment. There is no vaccine for the original strain of parvovirus, CAV-1 yet dogs no longer get sick from it. The newer strains, which do cause illness in dogs, are the result of mutation due to vaccination. The same issue is happening worldwide with the polio vaccine.
- Like other modified live vaccines, the parvo vaccine has been known to create the disease it was intended to prevent.
- Puppies are likely to be exposed to parvo when brought to the vet’s office for their parvo vaccination. It takes two weeks for the vaccine to protect the puppy, so not only can the vaccine cause parvo in puppies, the trip to the vet’s office can.
- Parvo is more treatable in unvaccinated puppies, especially over the age of 8 weeks. Vaccinating before that age is just as likely to not protect the puppy as it is to protect him.
- The risk of Vaccine Induced Autoimmune Disease is greater than the risk of parvo.
- The parvo vaccine has been linked to heart disease.
- Vaccination suppresses the immune system for several days, increasing the puppy’s risk of developing disease.
- Parvovirus vaccination can create a chronic form of the disease, the symptoms of which include chronic gastritis, hepatitis and pancreatitis, chronic diarrhea and food sensitivities.
It may be wise to avoid the unnecessary use of the distemper vaccine until it is proven not to be the cause of parvovirus in young puppies. The nosode is generally thought to be the most effective and safe manner of prevention by homeopathic vets. Due to the comparatively risk free nature of nosodes, they can be given at a very early age in susceptible dogs ie, 10 to 14 days old. “Experience in practice has shown that this Nosode has given consistently good results and no breakdowns have been reported”. (George Macleod) Christopher Day reported a single failure of the nosode in his vast experience in the field with this disease, and even that case, the disease was non fatal and mild.
