Skin issues. There are many
different types of skin issues, including dermatitis, yeast, alopecia (hair
loss), hives, rashes, itchy wrists and ankles (where a lot of dogs chew
themselves), abscesses, ear and eye infections and anal gland problems. Skin
conditions are never “just skin issues” but are a manifestation of deeper
underlying disease. Vaccination can cause allergic reactions because cells in
the body called Langerhan cells are constantly scouting for antigen (which the
rabies virus is full of). When Langerhan cells detect these foreign invaders
(like bacteria or viruses), the body then sends out inflammatory cells to fight
off the attacker by creating an allergic reaction.
Diagnostic Laboratory has modified the rabies antibody titer test, and if
adopted, KSU says it will “cost pet owners less money and may help reduce the
number of yearly vaccines for pets”
The symptoms of rabies
miasm suggest that it’s much more common than you might suspect. Dee Blanco,
D.V.M - "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. We see a lot of
epilepsy/seizure, often after a rabies vaccination. Or dogs or cats can
become aggressive for several days.
There are some doctors that
choose to do the research themselves in order to develop an informed opinion on
the subject. These doctors who become knowledgeable about vaccines usually
become anti-vaccine. A little knowledge goes a long way.
Your dog is suddenly having
trouble walking after a rabies vaccination. Or he suddenly becomes aggressive.
You ask your vet if the condition could be tied to the rabies shot. No, it’s
not possible, the vet says. He says he has never heard of such a thing. But
something tells you the condition and vaccine are related. . . .
Kibble: Never A Good Option by Dogs
Naturally Magazine in Featured Articles, Nutrition And Diet. Looking back at
the historical diets of dogs and their wolf ancestors, it is clearly evident
that they are carnivores. Their teeth, gut and digestive physiology strongly
support this. Dogs have hinged, powerful jaws along with canines and triangular
shaped carnassial teeth for the ripping and tearing of flesh and crushing of
bone. Raw Fed Starter Guide Dr.

INFORMATION ON EARLY SPAYING/NEUTERING "For those who wonder why we do not advise neutering your dogs before they are fully grown... this diagram shows you when growth plates close. The sex hormones in both dogs and bitches, control when these growth plates close, ie when these bones stop lengthening. If you neuter BEFORE they are closed, they keep growing longer, resulting in a taller, thinner, narrower dog but more importantly, in a dog who has some bones the right length and some not, which puts unnatural strain on ligaments, tendons and muscles and the joint itself. Some of the notations on this diagram give a pretty big window, this is because small breeds will close sooner and larger breeds like the GSD will close much later. Many people worry that early neutering will stunt their dogs growth but actually t…
The natural deworming Diatomaceous Earth (often referred to as "DE") is an off white talc-like powder that is the fossilized remains of marine phytoplankton. When sprinkled on a bug that has an exoskeleton (such as bed bugs, ants or fleas) it compromises their waxy coating so that their innards turn into teeny tiny bug jerky. But it doesn't hurt mammals. We can eat it. We do eat it! It's in lots of grain based foods because lots of grains are stored with diatomaceous earth to keep the bugs from eating the grain! Dosage Food grade Diatomaceous Earth one teaspoon per day for small dogs and 1/2 teaspoon for puppies. For external parasite control, simply rub the powder at full strength into the coat for fleas and sprinkle on bedding.
A titer test is a laboratory or in-house veterinary test measuring the existence and level of antibodies (necessary to fight off disease) in your pet’s blood. Basically, it’s a test that will tell you whether or not you actually need to vaccinate your pet.
Why is this so important?
Because of what can happen if you over-vaccinate your pet! “Vaccinosis”, the name for the chronic disease, is caused by continued use of vaccines. These symptoms mimic the original disease in parts.
The most basic method for a titer is where your pet’s blood is drawn and sent away for testing. It ranges anywhere from $150 to $200. The most affordable method is the new “in house” testing procedure. This test is preformed at the vet clinic and it takes about 20mins to get the results. The price range is anywhere from $60 to $80!
According to truth4pets.org, “Although titer testing may cost somewhat more than vaccination in the short run, it…
Preventing a Leptospirosis Infection in Your Own Pet
There is a
vaccine for leptospirosis, but I don’t recommend it and I don’t give it to my
patients. It’s a relatively weak bacterial vaccine that is short acting and
can’t protect against all serovars of Leptospira.
particular vaccine is a bacterin, which is made from killed bacteria. This type
of vaccine by itself won’t prompt an immune response to make antibodies, so a
powerful adjuvant is added that elicits a strong immune system response.
Because of this, the vaccine also carries a significantly greater risk for
adverse reactions. We also now suspect that the vaccine can actually trigger
the disease in dogs, and it has also been linked to early kidney failure in
older animals. For more information about why this vaccine is not recommended, download Dr. Patricia Jordan’s article.
