my pet carnivore

I'm making an order here for the dogs at my pet carnivore. We are going to do a rare time splurge for beaver!

I came across this page on their site with vaccine informative links
https://mypetcarnivore.com/index.php?option=com_conte nt&view=article&id=84&Itemid=123

And came across this quote I like very much
"Disease is not caused by viruses or by bacteria or by heartworm-bearing mosquitoes. Disease comes from within, and one aspect of disease can be the susceptibility to various pathogens. So the best thing to do is to address those susceptibilities on the deepest possible level, so that the pathogens will no longer be a threat. Most importantly, don't buy into the fear." Dr. Jeffrey Levy DVM

 

Lyme disease prevention

I'd been reading about lyme disease and since this is the time for most of all America that dogs may contract lyme disease, I wanted to share something that I'd read about recently. If your dog was bit by deer tick, there are 2 things you can give to help prevent lyme disease from attacking.

The first and I think best one is called Ledum. It's a homeopathic remedy, that should be given in 30c for 2 days after a deer tick bite. Even some conventional vets acknowledge ledum for it's abilities to stop lyme.

The second is called Bioactive Lym D. It's also used for treatment active lyme disease, but the prevention dose is smaller. If a dog is at risk, hopefully under a vet's supervision these two preventions can be utilized.

This is a great article with faq to answer simply why dogs can still get lyme disease while on frontline and what more can you do to protect your dogs if you have a lyme disease risk:

know what the pills are and side effects for that your vet- prescribes before you give them!

For well meaning owners I think the risks of vaccines should be fully told. If they aren't needed, it's not better to get them anyway. The "if" depends on where you live (risks, laws, and info about the area's diseases), dog's health, and lifestyle.

Vaccines are not at all a bad invention, but by trying to prevent one disease they can and have caused others. For example allergies can be very frustrating, painful and chronic. Many times vaccines are their etiology by what they do to the immune system. Vaccines themselves act as an allergy. They shock the immune system into creating antibodies to try to fight a disease, so the immune system becomes inflammed. One of my vets states this inflammation only lasts a brief time. Many vets agree but many other vets disagree because we can't predict for each dog when the immune system can go back to normal.

The possible long term damage to the immune system is one issue. There are three other issues why vaccines have risks. They are 1. Additional chemicals in the vaccine like mercury, lead, formaldehyde, antifreeze, antibiotics, etc. Some of these can also contribute to damaging the immune system (cause autoimmune disorders, cancer) and seizures. THIS IS A SMALL RISK. But as more dogs are being bred in mills thus coming from genetically poor stock, their health is especially at risk to these extra chemicals used for preservation or enhancement.
2. Vaccines are not a guarentee of protection against their disease. Dogs vaccinated for rabies, parvovirus, distemper, leptospirosis, lyme disease, etc can still get them. Some vaccines are better than others like rabies, and some give very little protection and more side effects like leptospirosis.
3. The last concern with vaccines is that they can cause the symptoms of the disease. Lyme vaccine can increase the chances of early onset arthritis because an effect of lyme disease is arthritis. Rabies vaccine can cause seizures because rabies disease can damage a substance in the brain that protects nerves called myelin sheaths.

Some reactions to these vaccine danger facts are probably along the lines of "impossible" or "such a low risk that it doesn't matter". Those who have lived through the horrors of vaccine damage in their pet will beg to differ, but this isn't about scaring anyone or minimizing or maximizing risks. The disease risks are always the forefront when thinking about vaccines as they should be!
But I wrote this to remind to accept that there are vaccine risks too to be considered SECOND, but still important and crucial.


Dr Jean Dodds: "Many veterinarians trace the present problems with allergic and immunologic diseases to the introduction of MLV vaccines."

Christina Chambreau, DVM: "Routine vaccinations are probably the worst thing that we do for our animals. They cause all types of illnesses, but not directly to where we would relate them definitely to be caused by the vaccine."

Martin Goldstein, DVM: "I think that vaccines are among leading killers of dogs and cats in America today."

Dr Charles E. Loops, DVM: "Homoeopathic veterinarians and other holistic practitioners have maintained for some time that vaccinations do more harm than they provide benefits."

Mike Kohn, DVM: "In response to this [vaccine] violation, there have been increased autoimmune diseases (allergies being one component), epilepsy, neoplasia [tumors], as well as behavioural problems."

"The first thing that must change with routine vaccinations is the myth that vaccines are not harmful. Veterinarians and animal guardians have to come to realise that they are not protecting animals from disease by annual vaccinations, but in fact, are destroying the health and immune systems of these same animals they love and care for." - Dr. Charles E Loops, DVM

 

Should you breed your dog? (from another forum with- permission)

July 3rd 2011 10:07 am

1. Where did you get your dog- a breeder, shelter, pet store, found it?

2. Only a breeder with 3 to 5 generation pedigrees should your dog be considered.

3. There should be at least 4 titled dogs (conformation, obedience, tracking, field, etc) in the last THREE generations at least.

4. Next consider your dogs temperament. Is it stable? Does he/she show signs of anxiety, stress, hyperactivity?

5. Does the dog fit the breed standards as compared to the top conformation winners of it's breed?

6. The next to last step is genetic health testing. Certified (OFA, CERF, etc) FREE of genetic diseases. This step must wait until at least age 2 for most tests. Some genetic disease like epilepsy may not show up until age 5 or later, so it's important to find out if any disease is in the previous 3 generations.

7. Last, if the dog has passed all these steps, while he/she may be of breeding quality, if you are NOT active in showing or working your dog, think very carefully about your reason for breeding. Breeding should be done to improve the breed, not so you can see puppies being born or because you alone think your dog is fabulous. Breeders don't make money when they are good breeders. Don't breed out of greed- financially or emotionally!

The vaccine dose for a 3 pound chihuahua and 150 pound mastiff are the exact same- 1cc does for both dogs.
