Most pet owners aren’t aware of the dangers surrounding animal vaccinations that have been discovered in recent years. Major veterinary associations now agree that immunizations can trigger all sorts of maladies, from allergies to cancer, but most pet caretakers (and many veterinarians, it seems) haven’t gotten the word.
“With vaccines that are repeated year after year, the frequency and severity of these side-effects in our pets has increased dramatically.” Dr. Donna Starita Mehan, DVM

There is an ever-broadening trend of eliminating vaccinations for adult dogs, except for rabies, where required by state law. We have now had a report that all 27 veterinary schools in North America are in the process of changing their protocols for vaccinating dogs and cats. Here, in a nutshell, are the new guidelines under consideration: “Dogs’ and cats’ immune systems mature fully at 6 months. If a modified live virus (MLV) vaccine is given after 6 months of age, it produces immunity, which is good for the life of the pet (i.e., canine distemper, parvo, feline distemper). If another MLV vaccine is given a year later, the antibodies from the first vaccine neutralize the antigens of the second vaccine and there is little or no effect. The titer is not ‘boosted’, nor are more memory cells induced.
“Not only are annual boosters for parvo and distemper unnecessary, they subject the pet to potential risks of allergic reactions and immune-mediated hemolytic anemia. There is no scientific documentation to back up label claims for annual administration of MLV vaccines. Puppies receive antibodies through their mother’s milk. This natural protection can last 8-14 weeks. Puppies and kittens should NOT be vaccinated at LESS than 8 weeks. Maternal immunity will neutralize the vaccine and little protection (0-38%) will be produced. Vaccination at 6 weeks will, however, delay the timing of the first highly effective vaccine. Vaccinations given 2 weeks apart suppress rather than stimulate the immune system. A series of vaccinations is given starting at 8 weeks and given 3-4 weeks apart up to 16 weeks of age. Another vaccination given sometime after 6 months of age (usually at 1 year 4 months) will provide lifetime immunity.”
Illness occurring after immunizations
Chrissie Mason B.R.C.P., Ph.D. – “I am becoming seriously concerned at the increase in the cases of autoimmune disease, and the canine/feline vaccination program which I consider to be inextricably linked. Certainly, I do not stand alone in holding these views, as a number of orthodox veterinary practitioners have expressed their concern over the incidence of certain types of illness suddenly appearing after immunizations have been administered. Often these are severe skin disorders, gastrointestinal disturbances, sickness and colitis symptoms, all of which have been observed and recorded.
A further occurrence observed by some veterinarians is that of a tumor or growth appearing directly on or around the sight of the annual injection, this is particularly noticeable in the feline world, and can take the form of fibrosarcoma. Indeed, the list of symptoms that can be linked with the overexuberant immunizations appears endless: warty growths, tumors of both malignant and benign type, seizures, skin problems, bone and joint disorders. In America, the veterinary immunologists claim that vaccinations should only be given once or twice during an animal’s lifetime.
There is no need or evidence to prove that annual vaccination programs are either essential or effective. On the contrary, research suggests that no dog over 7 years of age derives benefit from the annual vaccine schedule. Furthermore, those animals submitted to the annual boosters go on to display exacerbation of joint related ills in later life.”
Adverse effects from animal vaccination
Dr. Ronald D. Schultz, Ph.D..- “Annual re-vaccination provides no benefit and may increase the risk for adverse reactions. The percentage of vaccinated animals (those vaccinated only as puppies) protected from clinical disease after challenge with canine distemper virus, canine parvovirus and canine adenovirus in the study was greater than 95%.”
Dr. Charles E Loops, DVM – “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 realize that they are not protecting animals from disease by annual vaccinations, but in fact, are destroying the vitality and defense systems of these same animals they love and care for. Homeopathic veterinarians and other holistic practitioners have maintained for some time that vaccinations do more harm than they provide benefits. Vaccinations represent a major assault on the animal’s immune system. Vaccine induced chronic diseases range from life-threatening conditions such as auto-immune crises to conditions destroying the quality of life of an animal as in chronic skin allergies.”
Dee Blanco, DVM – “You take healthy animals and often very quickly after you vaccinate, you can see simple things like itching of the skin or excessive licking of the paws sometimes even with no eruptions and licking of the air. We see a lot of epilepsy/seizure, often after a rabies vaccination. Or dogs or cats can become aggressive for several days. Frequently, you’ll see urinary tract infections in cats, often within three months after their [annual] vaccination. If you step back, open your mind and heart, you’ll start to see patterns of illness post-vaccination.” See more information on the vaccinosis symptom of severe inflammation of the tail.
Dr. Donna Kelleher, a Seattle-based veterinarian who uses acupuncture and chiropractic, says that improving an animal’s immune system will negate the need for most vaccines. Vaccines, she says, have been shown to cause auto-immune diseases. “I feel they may be responsible for arthritis, skin, liver and kidney problems as well.”
