Vaccinosis

Karen mentioned vaccinosis in another post. Traditional vets seldom mention this term, and it's maybe time they recognize the issue with vaccinations. https://healthypets.mercola.com/site...n-disease.aspx

I am SOOOO lucky to have, as my dog's primary care provider, a Vet who worked with Dr. Dodds when she was in school. She is well aware of the potential problems and very willing to work with clients who want a minimal vaccine protocol (and minimal CHEMICAL protocol for that matter) for their dogs.

How many vets' offices do you go into where all the flea and tick meds are behind the counter and not advertised, (they will sell it to you if you ask, but you have to ask) but diatomaceous earth is prominently displayed for sale? They also will direct you to a website with natural methods for controlling fleas and ticks rather than immediately jumping to chemicals.

Many years ago our Cardigan Welsh Corgi, Dewey, developed a condition in which the nasal membranes and his throat swelled to the point that he couldn’t eat. He was 5-7 months old as we were trying to figure out what was going on. 3 traditional veterinarians, including the NC veterinary school said that the only way to help him was to put him on very high diesel of steroids for the rest of his life. I didn’t accept this as he was so young and I felt that the side effects of the steroids would would have a very negative affect on his health. He was quite thin because he really struggled to eat. In looking for alternatives I found my current vet who was trained in homeopathy as well as traditional veterinary medicine. I chose to have her do a homeopathic consultation and she determined that he should be treated for vaccinosis. The remedy resolved Dewey’s issues. My vet said that it was vaccinosis that resulted from the kennel cough vaccine. For the next decade I didn’t allow anyone to give Dewey the kennel cough vaccine and he was healthy. In 2006 my father got sick and I went to stay with him. He died 3 weeks later. My husband was handling boarding the dogs to come to the funeral, in another state. He allowed Dewey to be given the kennel cough vaccine. I returned home a couple of weeks after the funeral. Within a month or so Dewey started having trouble swallowing again. The symptoms were just as they had been when he was a pup. I had my vet do another homeopathic consult and she treated him with the same remedy she had used to treat him for vaccinosis due to the kennel cough vaccine. Dewey recovered again. He lived a healthy life until he was diagnosed with degenerative myelopathy at age 14. He died as a result of that condition a few months past his 15 th birthday.

What a story! Thank you for sharing. (Can we see a photo of Dewey?)

Here’s a picture of a picture of Dewey with Zoe, the little one, and Hershey. It was before the ubiquitousness of smart phones!

I just took Zoey to a vet on the Dr. Dodds recommended list. She noticed her little hip didn't rotate properly, and yes, she hops like a bunny when she runs. It was a very thorough exam and I was convinced she appreciated my little undersized wonder as much as I did. As we were leaving the exam room and I was turning toward the door, I held Zoey up close to my face and she went, "grrrrr."

The doctor said, "Did she just growl at her mamma?"

Ah, I thought. She gets us.

It took six different vets to get to this point but my little havkids have found their doctor.

I have to admit that when she said she felt Zoey's energy level was low and sold me on t pills, I was worried she might next say her chak-ras were out of alignment...
