Older pet owners I’ve met in dog parks over the years are puzzled and amazed at their pets’ declining health compared to canine and feline health a half century or more ago. But they don’t think twice about keeping up to date with their dogs’ increasing vaccination schedules.
While walking our dog outside our apartment complex, I ran into a woman who normally walks two dogs. I asked about the other dog that was missing, and she said she had to put him down because he had become suddenly paralyzed in his lower body.
The vet said her small healthy dog must have fallen off wherever he had climbed to in her apartment while she was gone for the day. But there was no sign of injury.
Knowing that vaccines can cause a form of paralysis known as Gullien Barre Syndrome (GBS), I asked if that dog had been recently vaccinated prior to his paralysis.
She said yes, I had to have him vaccinated against kennel cough because I was leaving town to visit my daughter. I told her the dog may have had an adverse vaccine reaction. She walked away silently bewildered.
Not All Veterinarians Believe in Heavily Vaccinating Animals
Kennel cough is as dangerous as the common cold. This makes the bordetella vaccine a complete shot in the dark. In fact, the vaccine is so ineffective that leading veterinary immunologist Dr. Ronald Schultz of the University of Wisconsin has stated … “kennel cough is not a vaccinatable disease”.
Even goofier, the bordetalla vaccine is an attenuated live virus vaccine. These vaccines induce viral shedding within two weeks or so after the vaccination. All those recently vaccinated dogs are potent carriers for kennel cough of any dog it comes into contact with.

Dr. Charles E Loops, DVM (Doctor of Veterinarian Medicine) states:
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. (…)
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.
Holistic veterinarian Patricia Jordan, DVM, has determined that so many more pets are coming down with cancerous tumors at vaccine injection sites that recommendations have been made to vaccinate on animals limbs or tails. This way if a cancer forms at the vaccination site, the limb or tail can be amputated to save the animal’s life.
Reports of Vaccine Induced Cancers as the Source of Increased Pet Cancers are Real
Researcher Dr. Larry Glickman of Purdue University along with the researchers from the University of Geneva have associated foreign proteins in vaccines to creating cancer and leukemia through genetic damage in dogs. The vaccinated dogs develop auto-antibodies that attack their own DNA.
Pet MD is not an alternative website. It is a rather mainstream source of veterinary topics. But even that site reports on the rise of canine cancers that are associated with cancers starting at vaccination sites on dogs and cats.
Dr. Jean W Dodds, of Dr. Jean Dodds’ Pet Health Resource Blog explains that parvoviral vaccines are associated with lymphoma and leukemia as well as several other diseases and bone marrow failure. Even the August 2003 issue of Veterinary Medicine reported vaccines can cause cancer in cats and dogs.
The adverse reactions are usually first manifest as an allergic skin reaction resulting with excessive itching after a vaccination. Then it can get worse. The tumors usually begin as skin cancers on the vaccination sites.
They are highly invasive, rapidly growing, malignant and metastatic at rates approaching 25 percent. They can spread to regional lymph nodes and even the lungs. They create high vet bills for treatments, often placing their owners financially helpless to meet the expenses and forcing euthanasia on their beloved pets.
The heavy metals, aluminum and/or mercury (neurotoxins) are suspected as the original source of inflammation. Other vaccine components may include formaldehyde, a known carcinogen appropriate for storing dead tissue only, and other toxins such as MSG (a neurotoxin), sorbitol, and other residual impurities from processing.
It is advised to be on the lookout for lesions that form at the spot of injection and enlarge within a month after your dog’s vaccination.
Though rarely admitted by vaccinating veterinarians, this pet cancer phenomena has been labeled “vaccine induced carcinoma”, “vaccine associated sarcoma (VAS)” or simply “vaccosarcoma” by many who question vaccine policies for pets.
Vaccine induced sarcoma or vaccosarcoma has also affected the feline population, especially cats who are vaccinated often and especially since cats under ten pounds are given the same doses as dogs that weight over 100 pounds.
Some veterinarians who realize this have attempted to adjust doses accordingly, and some of them have suffered the wrath of veterinary bureaucratic officials or corporate veterinary managers.
Unfortunately, even testing for the type of cancer and its locations if spreading may be out of reach financially for many dog owners. Again, this may lead to putting one’s beloved dog or cat down (euthanasia) unless the owner is privy to natural cancer solutions that are effective, safe, and inexpensive.
Those can be found in the online alternative cancer guide, Cancer Tutor. The rule of thumb for cancer remedies is lower dosages according to pet sizes. Simply Google “Cancer Tutor Pets” without the quotation marks for sources of alternative pet cancer treatments without dangerous side effects.
Pet Vaccination Schedules Damage Immunity and Cause Other Health Problems
Richard H. Pitcairn, DVM, PhD, is the founder of the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy and coauthor of Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats. He claims the two major contributors to ill health among companion animals today is the overuse of vaccines and the feeding of commercial pet foods.
Dr. Pitcairn’s PhD is in Immunology and Virology. He didn’t start out thinking vaccines were a problem. It took him some time to see the clear and unyielding connection, which is vaccines produce chronic disease and vaccine induced diseases.
In other words, animals vaccinated often may have a lifetime of illness and disease with steady visits to veterinarians and more prescription drugs. The pets are often sentenced to a shortened lower quality of life.
Constantly vaccinated animals often have to be administered Atopica, a topical immune-suppression drug for skin allergy breakouts. Daily application may be for life to try and contain the dis-regulated immune system from reacting further.
And this drug comes with side effects that can lead to steady weight loss.
Dr. Pat Bradley, DVM states,
In a general and frightening context, I see the overall wellness and longevity of animals deteriorating. The bodies of most animals have a tremendous capacity to detoxify poisons, but they do have a limit. I think we often exceed that limit and overwhelm the body’s defense system function with toxins from vaccines.
Unless your pet is a chimpanzee or guinea pig, your pet produces ascorbic acid aka vitamin C in the liver from glucose in higher amounts than what we receive from today’s modern diets.
Ascorbic acid vitamin C in sufficient amounts is proven antiviral and antibacterial. Humans lack this aspect of immunity, but dogs and cats have the innate capacity to produce their own vitamin C.
In addition to vaccines that are repeated too often with annual vet visits, the dosages are disproportional. Whether your pet is a 100 pound plus great Dane or a tiny terrier mix or a five pound cat, all vaccine sizes are one size fits all. The smaller your pet, the higher the risk.
Animal companions shouldn’t need lots of vaccinations to be healthy. Taken from personal experience – less is better, none is best. Exercise, a safe and restful environment, and avoiding toxins with a healthy diet should suffice.
