Vaccines are important. Your dog needs them, but the amount recommended by the AKC and most vets are unnecessary and can cause major problems and a host of issues.
These problems and issues are known as vaccinosis, which refers to a set of symptoms that occur after the administration of vaccines immediately or chronically, months or even years later.
Most veterinarians refuse to acknowledge it because they are the ones administering the shots, and administering them frequently. Take a closer look at the AKC's recommendation, which is the protocol that most vets follow:
This is a lot of shots for puppies and can overwhelm their immune systems, especially if they are a pure bred dog. Pure bred dogs are bred from genetic lines that don't have as much genetic variety compared to non-pure bred dogs. This limited genetic variety and generations of parent dogs that have been vaccinated create predisposition for vaccine reactions.
Skins issues are extremely common vaccinosis reactions and include:
- Calcium formations
- Interdigital cysts
Other vaccine reactions include:
- Appetite issues
- Inflammatory bowel disease
- Runny eyes and conjunctivitis (tear stains in dogs, dry eye, chronic eye allergies)
- GI lymphoma;
If you have a bulldog, the symptoms listed in the visual below are super common.
Often these symptoms are recognized as an isolated disease rather than acknowledging the vaccine as the major culprit. Most vets will respond to these symptoms that stem from vaccine by treating with immunosuppressants, assuming the animal has an immune problem. The drugs hide the illness by providing temporary relief, only for symptoms to reappear with a vengeance.
It's not just too many vaccines, it is also the ingredients used to preserve and transport them. Read more on that here.
So if your dog has ever received a vaccine and they have been sick, taking steps to optimize their health is very important.
