Just as most people never question that the vaccines they give their children are safe and effective, most people never give a second thought to the shots which they so willingly allow their veterinarian to administer. However, many vets today are altering their original recommendations as far as vaccinations go.
According to the Current Veterinary Therapy XI, a reference published every two or three years, and which is pretty much considered the Bible of Veterinary care, "A practice that was started many years ago and that lacks scientific validity or verification is annual revaccinations. ALMOST WITHOUT EXCEPTION THERE IS NO IMMUNILOGIC REQUIREMENT FOR ANNUAL REVACCINATION. Immunity to viruses persists for years or for the life of the animal. Successful vaccination to most bacterial pathogens produces an immunologic memory that remains for years, allowing an animal to develop a protective anamnestic (secondary) response when exposed to virulent organisms. Only the immune response to toxins (such as tetanus) requires boosters... and no toxin vaccines are currently used for dogs or cats. The practice of annual vaccination in our opinion should be considered of questionable efficacy unless it is used as a mechanism to provide an annual physical examination or is required by law (i.e. certain states require annual revaccination for rabies)."
According to the Cat Care Society, "More and more animals are suffering from adverse reactions to vaccinations. These adverse reactions can include lethargy, fever, stiffness, sore joints, abdominal tenderness, anaphylactic shock (an allergic reaction that causes swelling of critical airways which can result in death within minutes), liver and kidney problems and more. If an animal has a preexisting health problem, vaccinations can expedite a decline in health of that animal as they are known to depress the immune system. Many animals with chronic problems fail to improve or respond to traditional treatment. The homeopathic community refers to these adverse reactions as "vaccinosis", which broadly means the vaccinations interfere with the body's own ability to heal itself" (1).
Cancer at the site of the injection can happen as often as 1 in 1000.
It is suspected that the two vaccines causing these tumors are the feline leukemia and rabies vaccines that came out in 1984 which can be injected under the skin instead of in the muscle. It is believed that the reason for this is that these vaccines contain aluminum, and that this causes an inflammation which turns into a tumor (2).
In an effort to try and justify aluminum use in vaccines, the manufacturers state that the tumors can't be attributed to aluminum because other vaccines cause tumors too, not just the ones with aluminum. By trying to justify themselves, they are making my case very well......avoid all vaccines, even the ones WITHOUT aluminum, because by their own admission, these other vaccines can cause tumors also.
These tumors are said to be very invasive and hard to treat. Most are treated with surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. And we all know how HUMANS respond to those kind of treatments.........they are toxic and poisonous. They are to be avoided as well.
There is much historical evidence to indicate that Pasteur's rabies vaccine was a dismal failure, infecting more animals with rabies than it saved.
So, if veterinarians themselves say that the vaccinations are questionable, we should not feel compelled to use them.
And.......if they know that immunizations cause tumors in animals..........why are we also injecting ourselves with vaccines made from animal products, when we know they have proven side effects that are dangerous?
To help prevent viral or bacterial contamination in your animals I suggest the same thing that I do for humans: daily ingestion of Nutronix International's New Silver Solution. Recently, thorough, focused studies of the New Silver solution by doctors and researchers at Brigham Young University have found that the New Silver Solution has killed every single pathogenic bacteria it has been tested on.
