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.
