Routine Vet Visit is Life Saver—You’ll Never Guess What They Found in This Cat

AJ Debiasse, a technician in Stroudsburg, PA, contributed to this article.

Few things are as entertaining as a cat playing with a toy. Pet stores are filled with toys to cater to the most demanding kitty. Other cats, despite their guardians purchasing actual toys, prefer to play with bottle caps, balls of aluminum foil or yarn. Did you know that all of these items can pose risks for your cat?

According to, Garry, a tuxedo cat in Hove (on the South coast of the U.K.) recently went in for an annual physical exam. During “routine” palpation of his stomach, Dr. Jess Maguire felt a large, firm mass. Dr. Maguire suspected a tumor and told Garry’s guardian, Ana Barbosa, to “prepare for the worst.” The veterinarian recommended surgery to see if the mass could be removed.

To Dr. Maguire’s surprise, the mass turned out to be not cancer, but a ball of shoe laces, hair ties and bits of plastic in the stomach. Barbosa had mysteriously lost some of her shoe laces, but had no idea Garry was eating them. Everybody was so relieved that Garry didn't have cancer. “When I first heard it may be a tumor, I was devastated.” Barbosa is quoted as saying on the Life With Cats website. “My Two boys and I all adore him. So although I was absolutely shocked to find out what the mass was, we were relieved to hear the good news that it was not a tumor.” Fortunately, there was no permanent damage done to Garry’s stomach.

Not all cats are as lucky as Garry
Unfortunately, not all cats have the happy outcome that Garry did. When a cat swallows a foreign object, there can be several outcomes:

  • If a foreign body is small enough to pass through the intestine, and does not damage anything along the way, it may simply be expelled (a polite way to say pooped out). Sometimes we don't even know that something was ever swallowed until we find something unusual in the litter box.
  • Other objects may be too large, or shaped in a way that does not allow them to pass through the stomach or intestine. They can get hung up anywhere, from the esophagus (the tube from the mouth to the stomach), to the stomach and small intestine, or even the colon. It's important to understand that just because an object was able to pass to a certain point does not mean it will continue to pass.

When there is a blockage, the object can be removed with surgery and with minimal negative effects to the area. However, in some cases the foreign object can cut off circulation to the intestines, which may require a more extensive surgery to remove the diseased part. Of course, none of this can happen unless a blockage is identified first. Keep in mind that Garry’s foreign body was discovered during a routine checkup and he showed no signs of the problem. Make sure you visit your veterinarian often to keep your cat protected.

Linear foreign bodies
Of all foreign objects, “linear foreign bodies” (string, yarn, ribbon, floss) can cause the most damage. It typically causes the intestines to bunch up like an accordion. Worse: a linear foreign body can cut into the intestine and cause a deadly leakage.

Cats are extremely stealthy and can get into areas you would have never expected. Do your best to keep potential items out of your cat’s paws. Keep in mind that just because your pet has not done something for years does not mean he is not going to do it, out of the blue. We have met many guardians throughout the years that have been shocked that their pet ate something because, “They had never done it before.”

Clearly, Garry was very lucky that his guardian was willing to help him with surgery, and even luckier that he came out of this ordeal unharmed.

If you have any questions or concerns, you should always visit or call your veterinarian -- they are your best resource to ensure the health and well-being of your pets.

How to build an oxygen tank for your pet (fox, birds, animal)

It's totally cruel to do that to an animal. You are doing it for yourself, not for the animal. This kitty has NO quality of life.

Whatever crackpot veterinarian suggested this is definitely on the crazy train.

Hello and thank you for posting this information. I am looking into putting together a similar solution for our cat, who is fighting off a case of pneumonia. So far, however, every vet I have talked to has been clueless about providing a medical oxygen tank prescription. They simply have never done it before. One of them even mentioned that they had patients who had set up home oxygen therapy, but procured the oxygen elsewhere. She said she'd be happy to "prescribe" it, but has never actually heard of doing so. Are you able to share any additional information for how you procured your oxygen? What kind of homecare facility did you go to? Also, could you share information about the oxygen prescription so that I may share it with my vet? What kind of tank did you use and at what setting?

If anyone has any advice or can help, please let me know. I would greatly appreciate it. The oxygen is the only part we're still missing. We live in the NYC area. Thank you!

I grew up on a farm, jambo101, and we didn't kill an animal just because it was sick. Maybe you are thinking of prison. We also had books on the farm, so by "reading" you would know this is *temporary*, it is exactly what the vet does, and it's sure more humane than shooting an animal who is having trouble breathing.

We had a cat with Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). When they go into heart failure, the correct treatment is an oxygen box. My vet charges $220 for 0-12 hours in an oxygen box. sveg15 has done a good deed by putting this info on the web for others.

I can add two pieces of info that might be helpful. First, there is no difference between medical grade oxygen and welding oxygen. They both come from the same source, a giant tank of liquid oxygen. Ask the welding supply company if it comes from the same LOX tank. It does.

Two, go to Harbor Freight, buy a small oxygen tank Item #92810 and regulator Item #94846. That's about $130. Get the tank filled at a welding supply store, about $14. No prescription needed. (Edit: What I actually did was buy the tank and regulator on Amazon. Cheaper, and the flow meter is built in to the regulator. I also found great deals on Craigslist.)

For a cat, my vet specified 2 liters per minute. Either buy a flow gauge from ($17) or do this: Fill a 2 liter bottle with water. Run tubing from the oxygen regulator to inside the bottle. Fill a pan with water, and quickly invert the bottle into the pan. The water in the pan will keep the water in the bottle from coming out. Science class. Just barely open the regulator a tiny bit. The bubbling air will force the water out of the bottle. If it's set right, it will fill the two liter bottle in one minute.

Maybe this sounds expensive, unless you compare it with the vet: $220 for the oxygen, $100 for the overnight stay, etc. And the animal is stressed out all night with strangers. I started building an oxygen today, didn't get it done before the pet needed an emergency visit. I can tell you, $130 for the stuff at harbor freight is way cheaper than the $800 I got charged by the vet tonight.

This is valuable info, sveg15. Thanks for sharing it.

I love Canobie Lake veterinary hospital and so does my dog - Claire M.

I feel like all the personnel know my dogs personally and treat them like they are just as important to them as they are to me.

The staff is always patient when answering my questions and take great care of my animals. They are the best.

Our pup’s first visit. Due to COVID restrictions, we waited in the parking lot, but the All Pets team called us throughout his appointment and answered all out questions verbally, then I also got an email copy as well. So glad we have a wonderful veterinary team to keep our puppy healthy!

Great staff and wonderful caring providers.

First time visit for my new puppy and everyone was so nice and helpful. I am glad I chose you as Kolas vet.

I’ve never had any unpleasant experiences here. Everyone is friendly, caring and takes the time to talk to you.

This was our first visit and Dr. Emily sat on the floor and took the time to bond and make Fenway (min Schnauzer) very much at ease for the exam. Professional, courteous provided detail layman’s explanations. Five stars!

We rescued a Chinese Water Dragon and everyone was wonderful with helping us to heal her injuries. She is now healthy and happy.

Staff is always accommodating and helpful. Doctors are great.

Under the existing circumstances with the Coronavirus, I thought the procedure to see the Veterinarian was safe and timely.

I love that you check in, are seen, and check out all in one room. It is a life saver not having to wait in a waiting room with two dogs! All the staff is very friendly, accommodating, and great with my two girls. We have many vets closer to us, but Canobie Lake Vet is definitely worth the drive!

Since being new to the area and having to find a new veterinary for my fur baby I left my appointment knowing that I found a great veterinary to take care of my fur baby.

Canobie Veterinary Hospital is a great place. The doctors and staff are wonderful. They always make you feel at home and my fur babies are getting the best care.

Canobie Lake Vet is by far the best. Dr. Magnisun and the entire staff are such a pleasure.

Very friendly knowledgeable and accessible staff, appreciate the follow up call, thank you.

I would highly recommend Canobie Lake Veterinary Hospital to all my friends.

Love this vet. No more long waits and cats and dogs freaking out in a front lobby. You are brought in to a private cozy suite, everything is done in the room and you even checkout In That same room. Vets are amazing and call you back themselves with results. So glad we made the switch.

I’m a first time puppy owner and they have been great with me, answering any questions I have and calling to check in on us, glad I chose this place for my puppy’s care…

Have been taking my pets to Dr. Magnuson for years. She and her staff are caring and efficient. My dogs love to go to the vet. You couldn t find better care for your pet.

I went to All Pets for a routine wellness exam for my Bearded Dragon (my first reptile). I just wanted to make sure I was doing everything correctly. The staff and doctor were very friendly and helpful and I would definitely recommend All Pets to someone in need of a reptile vet. It is worth the drive.

I have been going to Canobie Lake Vet Hospital for about 6 years. They treat me and my pets like family. I have so much confidence in their care and I can’t say enough positive things about the staff. Dr. Magnuson and Dr. Dressel are simply amazing and I trust them implicitly!

Dr. Dressel is wonderful we had her at another facility and we were heartbroken when she left to go Canobie Lake Veterinary. We stayed at the old facility for a couple years but mom and dad finally realized we just had to get her back as our doctor. So we are happy to be reunited with Dr. Dressel and finding Carrie was also there was a bonus. Very excited to be a part of the Canobie Lake Veterinary family.

- Scooby & George - Oh ya and our mom and dad too

Canobie lake vet was very impressive. I am a new ferret owner so they gave me some hand outs to about and familiarize myself with things I may not know. What impressed me the most was that they asked what I fed and how big of a cage my little fur babies were in. They truly cared that my pets are as happy as they can be. They were super patient with all my questions and answered them very thoroughly.

The service was very good and they treated my dog in a timely fashion. The doctor called the next day to see how my dog was doing and if I had any questions. I was very happy to hear from the doctor, it showed they care. I would highly recommend them .

We always feel that the staff takes excellent care of our pets. Everyone is terrific to interact with and eager to answer any questions.

With everything going on with the virus I was so happy that they were still open. And the measures they had to ensure not only their safety but mine while giving A+ service.

Cleanest and friendliest Vetrinary Clinic I ve ever been to! They re a keeper for sure! The love of animals and compassion says it all!! Thank you for your phenomenal service.

I have always had a great experience at Canobie Lake, and this last time was no exception. I know they are not the least expensive veterinary clinic in the area, but the treatment my dog receives, as well as the professionalism and friendliness of the staff always make me very satisfied. I ve been coming to them for over 10 years, and will continue to do so! Both Dr. Magnusson and Dr. Dressel are awesome!

The Vaccine Reaction An enlightened conversation about vaccination, health and autonomy

“You may choose to look the other way, but you can never say again that you did not know.”

Needless to say that if your children are vaccinated, you eventually stop. Dogs and cats receive vaccine almost always at six, eight, 10, 12, 14, 16 weeks, a booster at one year of age and then annually thereafter, which ends up being a tremendous amount of vaccine over a lifetime. Not to mention that once geriatric pets become old and begin suffering from potential degenerative diseases we don’t honor the fact that the immune system could be struggling and in need of less vaccine, we just continue to vaccinate. This has brought about a whole host of issues, not only health issues for dogs and cats but a whole host of ethical issues with veterinarians who are beginning to recognize that there’s a problem here.

31 Responses to " The Truth About Pet Vaccines "

My 15 year old cat was due for vaccinations. The vets office called several times to say he was due. We took him to get the shots. A day or two later he started looking tired and didn’t eat well. Concerned I took him back to vet. They gave him fluids and a shot to give him a “boost”. However he continued to decline. He had to be put to sleep a week or so later. Since then I will not allow a cat over 10 to get shots. Later he admitted that perhaps they should not give shots to cats his age. Though, it was too late for little Joe

My natural vet, who is also a DVM and wrote the book, the Nature of Animal Healing, titered a dog that needed a rabies shot to go overseas. The dog had 5,000 times the amount of antibodies than necessary. He also said that large dogs get the same amt of a vaccines as small dogs. Big Pharma has their hand even here. I am not saying all vaccines are bad, but many are completely unnecessary. Dogs also get cancers at the injection site. Time to rethink how things are done.

I have a 13 year old, indoor cat who has never gone outside and has no desire to go outside. I do not take her for routine vaccinations however, on the rare occasions when I have needed to take her to the vet for treatment, they have insisted she be vaccinated before treatment. Taking a cat to the vet can be a traumatizing experience. Why do I want to subject my cat to that on a yearly basis when she has already had her shots?

My old English bulldog pup had a severe reaction to rabies vaccine at 7 months… it was frightening and if I had not been home and known about vaccine reactions I would’ve just moved on… scary stuff.

Please don’t make things out worse than they are! The standard conventional protocol for dog and cat vaccines has been under serious scrutiny and professional disagreement for at least 10 years. The AVMA and AAHA recommended interval for rabies vaccination (the only one mandated by law) has been adjusted upwards from annual booster to 3 year booster and the Rabies Challenge has shown that it will likely be adjusted upwards again, and that titer tests establishing immunity will be accepted – once the duration of immunity and the efficacy of titers is solidly confirmed. Other pet vaccines are not universally mandated, so every vet has the authority to set her own standard protocol. But the number and frequency is debated, titer results are increasingly relied upon, and the tendency is to administer core vaccines and not others unless specifically indicated by an animal’s location or lifestyle. And in 50 years of working with animals, including running a mid-size shelter and now for 16 years a dog day care, I have never encountered a vaccine schedule as demented as the one you describe. There are a few breeders who subscribe to 100% natural rearing with no vaccines at all, a very large and growing segment of vets who are conservative and offer core immunization, verified by titer, and still many old school vets who go with the annual booster program – which is bad, but I find that the science is winning over their economic motives. There is still a lively debate inside the profession, and the new, corporate owned chains of clinics are a retro influence – so it is no time to become complacent. But the lead paragraph of this article creates a straw man to attack, just as in human medicine, the establishment with government’s help attacks all critics of any part of the vaccine industry as “anti-vaxxers.” Let’s not stoop to doing to them what they do to us. Let’s curb our tendency to exaggerate to meet counter exaggerations. Ultimately it debases science and the whole point of freedom of speech, which is so that the truth can be shared without fear of reprisal in the confidence that errors will be best corrected that way.

Laurie, thank you for your well thought out and worded comments!

You seem very familiar with animal vaccines. Could you direct me to one single study that proves the Rabies vaccine actually prevents rabies? I am not interested in the titer studies since it is just assumed, without proof, that elevated titers due to vaccines indicate immunity. In Ohio, most of the college students who developed symptomatic mumps had elevated titers so there is no reason to believe titer levels in our pets are indicators of immunity either. I have a theory about how these all important titers are achieved before marketing begins but that is for another time.

Since the rabies vaccine has been around forever, there must have been some kind of real scientific study done where 1/2 the subjects were given the vaccine and 1/2 weren’t, then both groups were exposed to rabies. I understand it is considered unethical to do these kinds of studies on humans but we have been doing medical experiments on animals without reserve to determine carcinogenic effects of chemicals/foodstuff for several decades. So there must be at least one study like this which proves beyond doubt that the rabies vaccine actually prevents rabies.

My daughter’s service dog (a goldendoodle( suffered from a vaccine reaction and we titre him now. However, I was shocked to learn that when I asked about the difference between a 1 year rabid vaccine and a 3 year (thinking 3 year may be more potent and therefore, more dangerous), I was informed that it is the same dose! This is insane!

Well, seeing that animals are treated as if they have more rights than children and babies, I can see where there would be changes in the veterinary practices. Expect further people infringements with both children and adults

One of my pets died within 2 hours of routine vax. Another had a respiratory incident within 1 hour that necessitated me going to emergency vet. He ended up with lung lesions a few years later. My 19 year old orange tabby had to go in and have his eye removed due to cancer. The vet insisted that I get the Upper respiratory vaxx. I obliged. Not only did he come down with upper respiratory within 24 hours of the surgery, which necessitated him being on antibiotics for 10 days plus recovering from the loss of an eye which was traumatic, the poor thing started losing his mind, couldn’t figure out what the kitty litter was for, laid on the bathroom rug for 23 hours of the day. I had to put him down. He was obviously damaged by not only the surgery but I’m so positive now that the proof about vaccines harming animals is just as poignant as them harming humans. I wouldn’t vaccinate myself against anything again if my life depended on it!

There is a problem even vaccinated the children. They must have 72 in order to enter school. No wonder Autism is now 1 in 4. Every shot contains mercury, that is not meant for human or animal.
Unfortunately, the law makes you vaccinate your pets for rabies every 2-3 years. the others you could forego or do the titers test to be sure they have immunity.

What do you suggest at your annual vet visit? Will a vet test titers? We have a very healthy and energetic dog, but when we adopted him he had heart worms. I worry he’s already been through so much undergoing that treatment, and I’d hate to keep annually vaccinating for rabies (per the state’s mandate) when I know he’s got to have adequate antibodies. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated.

Have a rabies titre done. It is a simple blood draw and all vets have access to send samples to labs that do the test. Most states will accept the results as adequate if they are high enough. It is more expensive, and will probably have to be done annually if the state requires annual vaccination, but it is likely to be the best option.

This is absolutely true and I have witnessed it first hand with a 12 year old Yorkshire terrier with a post vaccine reaction. I run titres annually at great expense but with a clear conscience. I see overvaccination particularly as it relates to horses where I am beginning to focus my attention as I have a 24 year old show pony.

My 9 year old Bichon Frise received a rabies booster vaccine and within two weeks came down with AIHA… Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia. It’s fatal in over 50% of cases. It cost me over $12,000 in vet bills over a four year period to keep him alive. Luckily he outlived his disease and died from heart failure at 16. This disease is a nightmare. You never know when a bout of anemia will strike and when it does the dog needs hospitalization and transfusions right away. Steroids only worked for about a year, then I had to put him on anti rejection meds. The rabies shot is by far the most dangerous. Avoid it at all costs after the initial shot at one year of age. Get a rabies titer to fulfill the state’s need to know you dog is immune to the disease or get a vet to write a letter stating he cannot get the shot due to an autoimmune disease.

My 5 yr old moggie nearly died after vaccination. He had an antibody that attached to his red blood cells called autoimmune hematocrit disorder. The next 5 yrs he had several near death experiences, required blood transfusion(s) (risky necessity), prednisone and at 10 yrs old succumbed to cancer.

About 17 years ago, I radically changed the diets of my dogs and also stopped vaccinating them. I had begun reading the research that, even at that time, rabies vaccine makers were testing duration of effectiveness of the vaccine and were at seven years and counting. I discovered that there was literally no difference between the 1 year and 3 year rabies vaccine other than the label. I also learned from veterinary expert Dr. Jean Dodds that there is no reported case of a dog that has undergone two rabies vaccinations ever contracting rabies. Meanwhile I discovered the concept of challenging immunity through a titer test of the dog’s blood, so I could check the dog’s current immunity to any disease.

The result is that my dogs, adopted as adults and heavily vaccinated previously, began living 3-5 years longer than they had prior to my changes. I have since moved to another state, 1 of 8 i the US without a vet school and mediocre vet care. The demands by pushy vet techs that I vaccinate my dogs are frustrating, and there are no boarding facilities or dog daycare facilities that are available to me without constant vaccination. My choices had been accepted by my vet over time, but that vet retired and the new staff of the vet who bought the clinic are even pushier. I walk on eggshells, for fear of “being fired” by the vet’s office, which would render me unable to get assistance if I ever had an emergency with my pet. I am considering going to another vet, but the prospect of another battle is daunting. Thankfully, with no additional vaccinations and an improved diet, they virtually never get ill.

When my beagle had puppies 14 years ago, I bought Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs & Cats. In it I read about puppy shots and the one size fits all approach.
It was then that my eyes were opened and I started reseaching vaccines for children. Needless to say I did not vaccinate my children that were born in 2008 and 2011.

Please give us tips about how to detoxify pets from vaccine products once they are vaccinated.
Thanks ?

Vaccines for pets is simply a part of the new money game. Pets don’t need vax – – nothing ALIVE needs them.

We have had two cockers who never were vaxxed in their lives except what the breeders had given them before we took possession of them at around age 6 weeks old. The first cocker lived to be 18 almost 19 years old – unheard of in most circles. Our second cocker is still going strong at age 13 – he’s still like a pup except he does have some vision problems common to cockers as they age.

I credit their old ages to NO VAX. EVER. They are in our yard at all times and if we have company we put them into a kennel in the yard, because we do not want to be asked if they’ve been vaxxed and have to explain anything to anyone. It’s our own business what we do with our animals, or at least it should be – – same with our own children but the world doesn’t feel the same I guess. We do the best we can to protect all living things from the medical industry in any form. THEY are the killers amongst us.

I couldn’t agree with you more. Vaccines are not a part of nature. They are part of a money grab by the medical industry.

I have an 11 year old Boston Terrier that goes to the vet as often as I go to a doctor – when we have a problem. The medical industry is only good for – in my eyes – fixing broken things and diagnostics. A yearly visit to the vet? What the hell for? So he can sell you on shots and pills that you don’t need? Same with the doctor. So he can put you on statins when there’s nothing wrong with you? And jab you with a flu shot when a good daily dose of vitamin D with K2 will keep your immune system hearty and healthy with no side effects.

I for one will NEVER relinquish control and responsibility of my or my dogs health to the medical industry. They are NOT health practitioners.

After my first dog received all the vaccinations, before she was 6 months old, another vet told me the dog immune system does not start to work unless after that time. So all these immune boosters are useless, I guess. Because at that young age, they still have their mother’s immunity. My dog now gets the 3 year rabies, and nothing else, and is a healthy darling ! I found a vet who does not force vaccinations, and respects your choice. The moment he tries I will find another one ! It is all about the money ! Wish I had known this when she was little, would have saved me hundreds of very needed dollars

Horses are even more overvaccinated. I remember bringing my mare to a barn for outside training. Their pregnant mares were vaccinated EVERY TWO MONTHS for rhinopneumonitis. That was clear proof to me that the vaccine didn’t work. A few years later, I lost a valuable pregnant mare to a (different) routing vaccination. She was the last mare from an elite stallion, carrying the last foal from another elite stallion.

Since then I have not vaccinated any animal in my care, and I never will.

Recently had this fight with a Vet that had been my dogs Vet for 15 years. All my dogs (6) are seniors. Three have serious health issues. They wanted to vaccinate my dogs, one with prostate cancer, one with heart failure and one with an autoimmune dysfunction. I said no, not just no but hell no. What this told me is that my dogs are dogs to my Vet. If you had a toddler with a serious health issue, no one would suggest vaccinating that child. My dogs are family members that get the same respect and care as any other family member. Thank God they have an enlightened owner that understands the danger of over vaccinating.

Education on Titters Testing…….If the disease shows up in the titters testing they have full immunity for that disease whether it’s extremely low or high. It showed up confirming his immunity for a particular disease..

There is no such thing when the Vet. says, Oh you pet has a very low titters and it’s time to vaccinate again….WRONG! Don’t fall for this line of bull!

That low titters only means his immune system is not fighting the disease….if titters comes back very high titters than his immune system is now fighting the disease. If the vaccine does not show up in the titters at all, that means you have not vaccinated or the animal has not developed a natural immunity for that disease. Know how titters work!

I used to get my cats rabies vaccines every year until my beautiful Maine Coon Miss Muffet got fibrosarcoma at the injection site. The vaccine was Rabvac2 by Ely Lilly and they paid for the surgery. That’s admission of guilt right there. My vet said this cancer usually comes back within a year or so and then there is no choice but to take the leg. I worry all the time now and check her every day. Also, I see people here saying they only vaccinate every 2 or 3 years. I asked my vet about that and she said the cancer rates are worse going that route. Maybe it’s a stronger dose?

I vaccinate my own dogs against Parvo and DHL as puppies and I think this really helps them to survive their first year and sets them up for a healthy adulthood, also Rabies injections but from then on nothing else, my over 60 years of maintaining healthy hunting dogs with no health problems and they all live to over 14 years is a healthy alternative to beau coup vaccines. This regimen is clearly superior to any other and I consider to be much more natural medicine.

Dear Cynthia,
It is not true that cancer rates go up with out vaccines for your dog. Don’t let your vet push you into it. My Bella got mast cell cancer (skin cancer that can spread to the blood stream and then the organs) from the rabies vaccine (Studies have shown this) given her by her first vet. The first vet misdiagnosed her and her cancer was almost out of control. Thank God we found a new vet that knew just how to save her. She would not vaccinate her. She said Immunocompromised pets, especially with cancer, should never be vaccinated and it is contraindicated. Bella lived 7 more years with cancer and had a full and happy life, thanks to our new vet! My new puppy came from the shelter and of course has been vaccinated but my vet respects my wishes to not give her any others ever again. She said “considering what happened to Bella I totally understand.” My other dog has been her patient 4 years and they don’t send vaccine reminders or ever ask me if I want to. They know my wishes and never bring it up.

As a holistic veterinarian, it is with frustration that I read the experiences of pet owners. I see the results of over vaccination every day in my practice. Those who come in having stood their ground with local vets often present to me in healthy condition. The induction of disease through vaccination can be rapid, with symptoms appearing within a few hours after vaccination, or delayed with the development of chronic disease months or years later. We are fortunate in veterinary medicine to be able to spread out vaccines. There are available, for example parvo only, or distemper only vaccines that may be used instead of the traditional Distemper, Adenovirus, parvo, parainfluenza combination vaccines that are often given. Thinking about each pet as an individual also helps us in the decision of how to vaccinate. Not every dog will be exposed to Lyme, Leptosporosis, or even bordetella, allowing us to avoid these dangerous vaccines. The rabies vaccine is a one year when it is administered as a first vaccine because the immune system often does not have a permanent response to this killed vaccine when given only once. In my experience with vaccine titers of dogs given only one rabies vaccine, often by 1 year later their titers are low. After the booster, however, they do hold their titer for years. I had one patient who had an annual titer, hold his immunity for greater than 10 years. Unfortunately we do not receive titer information for every patient, but fortunately we know that most, after having two rabies vaccines are protected for an extended period of time.

My parents bought a beautilful long hair Shepherd Turverin, GIgi. She was AKC purebred with papers, and after a rabies shot, parvo and another shot or two given on the same occasion and being put on heartworm medicine at the same time, at 18 months she had a seizures, was comatose and had to be put down. My mother went back to the breeder who gave her a puppy from a subsequent litter which ended up being Gigi’s niece. That dog survived with only a rabies shot and no heartworm preventative. Instead they got the bloodtest done annually and never had a positive result. As it turns out, of Gigi’s littermates all but one suffered seizures. There may have been greater sensitivity to all that toxins because in order to get the characteristic coloring and long coat, the dogs in her litter had 5 crossover common ancestors on both sides. They went on to have another Shepherd or two, all Turverins, but only gave the Rabies every 3 years and no heart worm, and the rest of the dogs survived intact.

This message is for Grisel Gonzalez. You asked about vaccine detox. I had written quite a long comment as to how, but The Vaccine Reaction did not post my comment. I reposted, since The Vaccine Reaction did not let me know why they didn’t post it and I had hoped it was simply a glitch, but they refused to post it again. So apparently I said something that they didn’t like. I’m now trying for the third time to help answer your inquiry completely rewording my answer.
Seek out a qualified homeopath. A qualified homeopath can help his clients, both human beings and pets, with vaccine detoxification. Hope this is helpful.
