Vaccine & Flea & Tick info

After reading everything I could on vaccines both online & on natural sites on face book and chatting with others I consulted in both a natural vet & my traditional vet on vaccines. Many dogs are being over vaccinated. They do not need vaccines every year! Even the vaccine manufacturer recommends every 3 years. When you take your pup in to get it's vaccines, please talk to your vet and let them know you do not want any Lepto vaccines! These vaccines are dangerous and have may side effects including death! Many times side effects are not instant and go unrecognized as a reaction by vets. Lepto vaccines have caused many dogs to have organ failure and seizures. Lepto is a bacteria that dogs can get infected by from drinking diseased water. It is not as common as many vets try to make you think. 

The Kennel cough or Bordatella vaccine is also unnecessary and most dogs that aquire it have been vaccinated.  There are many strains of kennel cough and your dog will recover from it as long as he/she is healthy and you take them to the vet if it gets bad. It is transmitted by coughing and sneezing so if it is going around, keep your dog away from others. Both of these are treatable and reactions from the vaccine are not!

Parvo and distemper are quite dangerous and its important to know how a puppies immune system works and why they need a series of shots 4 weeks apart. Pups get their immunities from their mom both while she is pregnant and from nursing, as long as the mother is immune to the disease she will pass a certain amount to the pups. Not all pups get the same amount of immunities from their mom. Sometimes they don't get as much 1st milk (colostrum) or mothers ability to pass it on is weak. At ABOUT 6 weeks of age the pups immunities start to wear off. As long as they do have mothers immunity a vaccine is voided by the immune system! It will take 2 to 3 weeks for the vaccine to create a new immunity, but only if mothers immunities are gone! So we vaccinate every 4 weeks until 4 months to be sure the vaccine has been able to produce immunity. Until after 4 months of age and 2 weeks past the last parvo/distemper vaccination your pup is not safely protected. I am hearing from some vets that missing a vaccine series by a week, means the whole series must start over. This is not true. If you were able to keep your pup in a safe environment away from any of the germs that cause parvo or distemper until pups acquired immunity is gone, 1 set of of vaccines would be all that is needed and usually for life! I suggest keeping your pup home and only visit safe locations until 16 weeks and only vaccinate every 4 weeks to not weaken his immune system by over vaccination.

A dog that has parvo will leave the parvo germ from its poop in soil for many years. Do not skip the puppy series of shots but do not allow Lepto added to the vaccine, so ask your vet what they are giving & tell your vet you wish to decline the Lepto vaccine. It is not a core vaccine and it is your right to reject it. I also recommend NOT giving rabies at 4 months along with the last puppy shot. Just to reduce severe reactions, wait  a month or even do it at 6 months. There is also a rabies vaccine company that makes rabies vaccines without mercury! You will have to ask your vet to order this but it is much safer for your dog.

 Parvo can kill your puppy very fast and if they do survive, will cost you thousands of $$$. Your dog will not be the same, and may have seizures and other issues after having parvo. When the 1 yr rolls around for the next set of shots ask for a titers test, It will cost more but it will also tell you if your dog is already immune to parvo and distemper, possibly for life and you don't have to stress their immune system causing autoimmune issues and allergies, which is common from over vaccination. With every vaccine your pup receives, it stresses its immune system. This is necessary to produce an immune response to the vaccine. The fewer vaccines it takes to get the job done, the better and healthier your pup will be. 

Same with worming, you can take a poop sample to the vet and find out if they have worms. Why poison your dog if there are no worms?

Socializing your pup!

The absolute WORST PLACE to let your dog play or socialize is dog parks, parking lots (even at the vets), camp grounds and rest stops. Parvo, worms and other diseases live in dirt or uncleanable surfaces like dirt driveways or lawns & other places dogs frequently go for many years! The more other dogs go to the area, the more likely there is to be diseases. Often in open public places, an unruly dog will attack your pup.  In a store it is usually a frequently cleaned surface and cleaned often and  your much less likely to run into disease.  So if you read and understood the part above about the pups immune system you now know that your pup is NOT safe until after 4 months and its last series of shots has had a chance to work, (2 to 3 weeks after the last shot). So when traveling and socializing BE CAREFUL! You can go to pet stores or indoor dog class where it is cleaned but its best to wait as long as you can and don't let them potty in the parking lot!

If you have a flea or tick problem in your area, please research natural ways to control them. There are many flea treatments that your vet may tell you are safe and recommend them. If you can feed them a chew tablet or pill, or pour dip on their backs and it provides protection against fleas and ticks for an extended time, it is NOT SAFE! It is a poison you are putting into the body of your pet, it can make them sick, cause severe allergies seizures, organ failure and DEATH! Not all pets have a reaction to these products but they are still poison! Once you have given the flea treatment, you can not undo the damage.


Remember your puppy is a BABY, until he/she is a year old consider them your baby. Would you put your baby at the top of the stairs and go to the bottom and call them. Of course not they may fall and injure themselves. Your puppy may fall and injure its self. Even if it falls and gets up and acts fine it may do irreparable damage to its tendons and ligaments that are forming. Remember, there are very tender parts forming including cartilage. Until up to 18 months your pups bones are not done growing and have bone plates that will close as he/she matures. Until then its tissue and ligaments holding the bones in place. Excessive play, or falling can permanently damage these and this allows the bones to form wrong.  The heavier the pup or dog is the harder the fall and the more damage it may get. Even just the act of running up and down stairs without falling can damage your puppy, the forces of jumping is hard. Its fun to have them in your lap and on the bed or sofa, but if you do please help them down, again the forces of jumping is something they would not do in nature and bad for them. People think because they can jump up and down in their car or truck bed that it is ok. Please don't let them jump down, catch their fall or lift them or get them a ramp. 
Although you may think your dog is not overweight & your vet doesn't tell you he/she is overweight doesn't mean he isn't growing too fast. Your dog will grow to the same size eventually regardless of how long it takes him to get there. The pup needs to be lean, look almost thin, during the 1st year of growth. People will say "Oh your dog looks skinny". Just tell them he is healthy! Please refer to  the chart on this. Overweight dogs even after a year, & for their entire life will have more joint or back or other health issues than under weight dogs. Even cancer rates are higher in overweight dogs. When the puppy grows at the maximum rate, it increases their chances of improper joint formati0n. There is so much involved in the growth of the bones, joints, cartilage  and tissues that its too much to go into without a biology class.
Your puppy needs exercise, but not vigorous, hard play. This is unnatural and can harm them. Constant throwing of a ball or frisbee or any toy to encourage hard vigorous play is also hard on the growing forming puppy. He needs to play and he needs to not slip or jump up to catch items returning to the ground hard or quick turns that can tear ligaments while he is still forming them. Not to say he cant play ball, just don't play him too hard. No running for miles chasing a  bike to wear him out. That is too much. 
Your pup needs a safe fenced yard to play at a puppy pace. Taking your pup out on lead or putting them on a tie is not the same and is inefficient for a growing Rottweiler pup. 
Please keep your puppy on Large Breed AAFCO Approved or an ALL LIFE STAGES,  high quality  food. Do NOT give unaproved supplements or too many treats nor table scraps of any quantity. The AAFCO approved food is scientifically designed and formulated to suit their needs for a growing pup. Any amount of added foods or chews or cookies will take away from this balanced diet. Added Calcium can cause deficiencies and all sorts of issues. This includes raw diet, that is not approved for large breed pups. They will be happy to be treated & trained with bites of their puppy food.
Your pups hips & elbows are perfect at birth.  Only about 20% of hip & elbow dysplasia  is actually  genetic! This means that  80% is from environmental issues. Hip Dysplasia can only occur if there is Laxity. Laxity occurs when the head of the femur does not fit snug into the socket. This can be caused from traumatic injury, (falling or slipping) over loading the joint with weight or lack of muscle strength. Joint laxity  is the primary factor that predisposes a dog to the development of Hip Dysplasia. In a newborn pup or human, the head of the femur is held securely in place by a strong ligament. If the ligament is damaged or severed, the femur will not be held tightly in the socket. When the socket is loose (laxity) damage occurs to the rim of the socket, especially with excess weight or excessive  or improper exercise, jumping off or up high to play, fast chasing of balls and frisbees or too fast of turns tearing ligaments. Or on slippery surfaces. The heavier the body weight the more impact on this. 
Another thing to consider is spay and neuter! Many more recent studies have concluded that early neuter (before the dogs bones are done growing and hardening) 2 years, the hormones are needed to complete this process. Hip dysplasia is much higher in early neutered dogs as well as many different cancers! You need to be prepared to keep your dog from breeding during this time.
I highly recommend a joint supplement (ask me about Nu Vet), for your puppy! Studies show great benefits in helping the joints to form properly when supplemented. Not vitamins and minerals! Joint supplements mean Vitamin C, Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Hyaluronic and MSM.

I have done everything in my control to ensure these pups had the best possible start. At birth they were placed on a special mat to provide traction while they  nurse off their mom. Their weight and growth was monitored daily to ensure they all grew at the approximate same rate. Not one pup  surpassing the rest and got overly fat. After they were weaned they continued to stay on the mat in their main play area so slipping was reduced. When they learned to use a dog door, an easy sloped ramp was provided rather than steps, with sides on it to prevent them from jumping off or falling.  If the pups are kept from the above hazards while growing up, it could well be the beginning of the end of hip dysplasia. I have high hopes. My pups did excellent  from birth and did not slip thus putting their legs in the best possible position for the hips to form correctly! Please help me in continuing this study and the best possible outcome for your pups.
