why vaccinate your dog

Why does your vet vaccinate your dog?

I think if you asked most vets, they’d say it’s to protect your dog from disease, right?

If you agree with your vet, then you really need to read on …

New Frightening Research

A new German study has finally compared about 8,000 unvaccinated children to vaccinated children to see how protected the vaccinated population is.

Why is this news?

Well nobody has really looked at the effectiveness of vaccines before.

That sounds hard to believe, but it’s true.

There have never been any safety studies done for any vaccine in use today that would meet the criteria of scientific proof.

Harold Buttram MD adds, “All we have are epidemiologic studies, which are indicators but not proof in and of themselves.”

Epidemiological studies aren’t really legitimate sources from which to draw conclusions about vaccine effectiveness.

For example, if 100 people are vaccinated and 5 contract the disease, the vaccine is declared to be 95% effective.

But here’s the hitch … if only 10 of the 100 were actually exposed to the disease, then the vaccine was really only 50% effective.

So the German study is a really important piece of information. But what they found might come as a surprise to you …

… they found that vaccinated children have 2 to 5 times more diseases and disorders than unvaccinated children.

Now before you think to yourself that this just applies to humans, you’ll want to read about what happened in Africa with the rabies vaccine.

The Unexpected Fallout From Vaccines

Vets in Kenya felt the same way … they wanted to protect the lions in the Serengeti from the domestic dogs living with the Maasai who they thought might spread rabies.

So in the early 1990’s, they vaccinated the domestic dogs for rabies and over the next couple of years, ironically, the vaccinated dogs began dying from distemper.

Then in 1991, the wild dogs began dying from distemper.

Finally, in 1994, distemper managed to jump species and hyenas, followed by leopards and ultimately the lions they were trying to protect started dying from distemper.

The same new strain of distemper in the domestic dogs vaccinated for rabies was subsequently found in the lions and was then found to have caused the death from distemper of most of a captive colony of wild dogs in Mkomzai Game Reserve in Tanzania in 2000 to 2001. Interestingly, these wild dogs had been vaccinated against distemper.

Following this, in 2007 the same new distemper strain was identified for the first time in free living African wild dogs in Maasai areas to the east of the Serengeti, where mass vaccinations of local domestic dogs were being carried out against distemper, parvovirus and rabies. The outbreak confirmed in one large wild dog pack was associated with high mortality of this highly endangered species.

Distemper is also reported to have caused high mortality in Botswana (Alexander et al 1996) where the researchers formerly in Kenya had first experimentally vaccinated wild dogs against rabies in the 1980’s.

“Similar observations were made about the hyena dog, which was in 1989 threatened with extinction. Scientists vaccinated individual animals to protect them against rabies but more than a dozen packs then died within a year – of rabies.”  says Dr. Vernon Coleman MB.  “This happened even in areas where rabies had never been seen before. When researchers tried using a non-infectious form of the pathogen (to prevent the deaths of the remaining animals) all members of seven packs of dogs disappeared. And yet the rabies vaccine is now compulsory in many parts of the world. Is it not possible that it is the vaccine which is keeping this disease alive?”

So it seems that vaccines outside of the lab don’t really work the way we meant them to …

… but there are often unintended consequences with vaccines and this makes sense because their ability to protect us has never been properly tested.

But Rabies, Distemper And Parvo Would Spread To My Dog If We Didn’t Vaccinate, Right?

Well, actually, there’s really nothing to prove this either …

And drawing again from human research, it’s interesting that most diseases weren’t eradicated by vaccines, as we thought they were.

“We were led to believe that vaccines are solely responsible for the eradication of infectious diseases such as smallpox.” says Suzanne Humphries MD.  “Most accepted, without question or personal study, that vaccines greatly reduced illnesses and are a benefit to overall human health. Few know that the mortality for “vaccine preventable diseases” had massively declined before the vaccine campaigns began. But it is painfully obvious (see chart above) that the mortality for the major infectious diseases, including those for which no vaccines were ever created, had regressed to nearly undetectable levels in the population – long before vaccines were introduced.”

So if you’re one of the crazy folks who doesn’t vaccinate their dog, you might not be that crazy after all. Here’s what we do know about vaccines …

Vaccines have never been proven to be effective.

Vaccinated populations are proven to be more diseased than unvaccinated.

Which is pretty ironic when we thought we were giving those vaccines to our dogs to protect them.

I guess the million dollar question is, what exactly are you protecting them from?
