Default Vaccines

I posted this on FB but wanted to share it w/you all as I think (although an older study) it is scientific in scope, but totally readable---in regard to vaccines & how they can affect both short & long term health issues of our pups.

http://www.petwelfarealliance.org/up...on_studies.pdf

This is an article that one can print & take with when vets are visited who do not believe how seriously vaccines can impact the health of our babies.

I am so thankful, I now have a vet that gets it and we did titers last week and didn't need no nasty shots!

That's a very good article. I saved it. Now I wonder if it is because of vaccination that Alex came down with thrombocetopenia.

Thank you Sandi...I saved it so I can read later. Thankfully my vet doesn't push me as she knows how I feel.

Some dogs do develop thrombocetopenia. Lisi's platelets were only 73 when she was diagnosed w. vasculitis back in late June/early July. If they had dropped to 50 the vet would have had to do a transfusion. Her latest blood work was finally good---that is from last week. I don't expect it to stay that way since she has been all over the map since her situation, but I will take if for now.

Great info & thank you for sharing!! I was just at my Vet today picking up some toothpaste she recommends and because of Mags recent experience with doing Titers testing I inquired about it. And Yes, they will do it when Maggie comes up for her next vaccinations in May. She is only 8 months, so I'm hoping being pro-active will help with her long term health.
