Vaccination

Before  I start talking about vaccinations I would like to thank people Like Dr. Ronald Schultz, Dr. Karen Becker & Dr. W Jean Dodd & Mr. Ed Frawly who helped me to understand the reality of pet vaccines with their expertise.


Vaccination  is very important for all dogs and every pet owner should make sure that their puppy/dog  are given proper vaccines from time to time after consulting a Vet. But I personally have a vaccine protocol of my own and it’s very different from the stereotype protocols that I used earlier, especially for my own dogs. I did not have much knowledge of vaccines a decade ago and hence I used to administer the vaccines every year but after going through Leerburg Courses I got to know more about the vaccination process and that it isn’t always necessary to administer the vaccines every year to our dogs. It rather has an adverse reaction on the dog or even a cat. I was a little sceptical first when I read this and so in order to be sure I went through a few more renowned websites like Marcola healthy pets by Dr. Karen Becker and Hemopet by Dr. W Jean Dodd. I consulted with Dr. W Jean Dodd (DVM) via email and she also reassured me that dogs don’t need vaccines every year. It’s always better to keep our pets with minimum possible vaccination and the fewer chemicals used on them the better and healthier they will be.  The reason lesser vaccines are advised is because it is now a proven fact that the vaccines used for Distemper, Parvo and Adeno viruses are effective for years and does not need to be incorporated every year. Since I am not a Vet, I personally cannot comment the exact numbers of years as to how long these vaccines remain effective but in my knowledge these vaccines once administered remains effective for up to 5 to 7 years and for few dogs they are for life.  The adverse reaction that comes from over vaccination is called “Vaccinosis”. You can read a lot of information about vaccinosis on the internet. Below is a link where you get additional information on this where Dr. Ronald Schultz and his fellow professors discuss about over vaccination and its adverse effects on the dogs & Cats.


Details


When I consulted my own Vet as to whether I should use vaccines for my dogs every year, he told me something that made me a little sceptical. He said that most of these vaccines are usually imported (either from abroad or from a different location) and to be kept at particular temperatures in a freezer. But if proper temperature conditions are not maintained the vaccines may lose their original medicinal value and may not be effective enough. But then I thought to myself that if the vaccines lose their medicinal value how would it really matter if we use it every month or we use it once a year. What my Vet also said was that since there is a big difference in the climatic conditions abroad and here in India, most vets in India support vaccination every year. After this I emailed Dr. Jean Dodd and told him all about my Vet’s opinion and solicited his expert advice as to what should I really do about my own dogs, coz when it comes to my dogs I want to make sure I give them the best (When I sent her this email , my dog was given 3 MLVs(DHPPIL) at the age of 10 weeks/18 weeks & after one year from the last booster).  This was Dr. Jean Dodd’s reply to my email:


Dear Asit --Hello ! Your young adult dog should not need any more booster vaccines except rabies, although to be sure you should measure her serum vaccine antibody titer levels to canine distemper and parvovirus. If that's not feasible where you live in India, then you could just give her a regular DHPP vaccine booster every three years.    Best wishes, Jean (W. Jean Dodds, DVM )


Below is the protocol she advised me to follow:



 

MINIMAL VACCINE USE

 

W. Jean Dodds, DVM

HEMOPET

938 Stanford Street

Santa Monica, CA 90403

310-828-4804; Fax 310-453-5240

e-mail: hemopet@hotmail.com

 

 

 

Note: The following vaccine protocol is offered for those dogs where minimal vaccinations are advisable or desirable.  The schedule is one I recommend and should not be interpreted to mean that other protocols recommended by a veterinarian would be less satisfactory.  It's a matter of professional judgment and choice.

 

Age of Pups

Vaccine Type

 

9 - 10 weeks

 

14 weeks

 

16 -18 weeks (optional)

 

 

20 weeks or older, if allowable by law

 

1 year

 

1 year after the initial dose

 

 

 

Distemper + Parvovirus, MLV (e.g. Intervet        

Progard Puppy DPV, now renamed Nobivac DPV , when Merck and Intervet merged)

Same as above

 

Same as above (optional)

 

Rabies

 

Distemper + Parvovirus,MLV (optional = titer)

 

Rabies, killed 3-year product (use a thimerosol (mercury)-free vaccine, and give 3-4 weeks apart from distemper/parvovirus booster)

 

 

Perform vaccine antibody titers for distemper and parvovirus every three years thereafter, or more often, if desired. Vaccinate for rabies virus according to the law, except where circumstances indicate that a written waiver needs to be obtained from the primary care veterinarian.  In that case, a rabies antibody titer can also be performed to accompany the waiver request.  See www.rabieschallengefund.org


As of now I use MLV DHPP every 3 years, no vaccines for Lepto, Lyme, Corona or Bordetella because I don’t think this is an endemic area for any of these viruses & only killed rabies every one year interval.  Having said that I do not mean to doubt my Vet’s opinion or advice but they may lack the updated information on these vaccines because they simply follow the old books. They generally use the same old school tactics and to be honest a lot has changed since they graduated. I certainly do appreciate their knowledge on Immunology but they do lack knowledge on Vaccinology. So the bottom-line is that I cannot advice you whether to vaccinate your dog every year or not since I am not a Vet. It’s completely your and your Vet’s decision. But this is what I do for my own dogs because as I said earlier: When it comes to my dogs I always want the best for them.

With that being said a veterinarian takes an important part in every pet owner’s life where the pet owners keep a blind faith on them for their expertise for their pet’s health but not all vets really deserve your respect so it’s your job to find out a holistic vet & if you get one or you already have one then you are lucky and should make your vet as your best friend coz a holistic vet really deserves respect from us. I also have a vet for my pets and I really respect him as I have been through so many vets & I found him as one who really deserves respect. He is a good person & a good veterinarian, when I told him about my views on vaccination with the facts I have, he never tried to push me for vaccinating my dogs every year rather he helps me out whenever I need any pet health suggestions for mine and my client’s dogs, but for vaccinations and few other protocols I strictly maintain what I feel best for my dogs.


After receiving his expert advice I follow the same except for the ‘Rabies Vaccine’ because every country has their own rule about the timeframe for using Rabies Vaccine. Just want to mention that as per Dr. Ronald Schultz the rabies vaccine is generally effective for a minimum of 3 years.
