Thoughts on Vaccinations
Hello, I'm new to this forum. I found it while doing some research. This weekend we are getting two 10 week old male Havanese puppies. I know we are probably crazy getting two but I have twin girls that are now 17 years old and I'm ready for the challenge again.
My main question is about vaccinations. I recently lost my two year old Maltese to a horrible disease, IMHA. The disease attacks the dog's red blood cells and destroys her immune system. We tried everything but the disease was too strong. Lola caught the disease from vaccines given to her at almost two years of age. I swore I would never vaccinate another dog except for their puppy shots. I've done lots of research and it seems we as a society are vaccinating way too much and some dogs are dying as a result.
Does anyone on this forum not vaccinate. After what we went through with Lola and her being only two years old, I can't imagine going through it again. Any advice is welcomed. Thank you.
