Over vaccination of animals and the adverse reactions
Often we mention like-minded professionals and veterinarians, we’ve even already done a profile on Dr. Jean Dodds and Dr. Karen Becker but the Healthy Pets video interview that was posted today is one that shouldn’t be missed if you are skeptical of vaccinating your pets or if you suspect your pet has had an adverse reaction to a vaccination.
Vaccine companies do an excellent job in making vaccines today. There is no question about that. The problem is that they cannot control…It’s not one-size-fits-all. Animals are individuals. They have genetic differences, they have nutritional differences, and they have physiological differences. So, why would you expect a vaccine with its combo-wombo mixture of antigens and other factors in there – tisssue culture remnants, fetal calf serum remnants and adjuvants…Why would you expect all animals to be able to handle that equally… — Dr. Jean Dodds
The story at a glance:
- Vaccination programs have traditionally been the holy grail of veterinary medicine. But the truth is veterinarians aren’t well informed about vaccine adverse reaction rates. Dr. Dodds believes the veterinary profession is still in denial about vaccine dangers despite evidence that has been accumulating for at least two decades.
- Another area of opportunity for vaccinations is with the informed consent of pet owners. Do you know for sure which vaccines your pet actually needs and which ones she’s receiving?
- Dr. Dodds is also very involved in the exciting field of nutrigenomics. Did you know the nutrients you feed your pet affect his genes, and therefore, his health and longevity? In fact, when we know which nutrients are essential for individual pets, we have the potential to impact longevity, reduce the risk of chronic disease, and speed healing.
