Vaccines & Their Damage, Part 1

You need the FACTS on vaccines to make the best decision. Vaccines are the single most damaging thing done to animals (& people). There is NO safe vaccine & NO wellness in anyone that’s been vaccinated. All vaccines cause brain inflammation, immune system suppression & other damage. All vaccines contain toxic & carcinogenic ingredients, preservatives, disease, cells from other animal species, & more. They alter & damage the DNA. Just one vaccine can cause lifelong health and/or brain/behavior/mental problems. We’ve seen vaccine damage in every vaccinated animal we’ve owned or rescued.

Each generation of vaccinated animals/people is worse than the one before. We’re providing you with some of the facts on vaccines here. You’re the only one who can best determine what’s right for your animals. You won’t get the truth from the government, the scientific community, the CDC, FDA, pharmaceutical companies, or conventional medicine/vets. They’ll lose too much money if vaccination stops. For the pharmaceutical companies alone, it’s $27 BILLION dollars per year just for vaccine sales. There’s more for all the drugs used to treat the numerous problems the vaccines cause.

After decades of vaccination & re-vaccination, many veterinarians/medical doctors, scientists, & health experts (human & animal, conventional & natural) are opposed to ALL vaccination. Others believe the risk must be taken & only “core” vaccines should be given. After more than 37 years of pet ownership & more than 15 years of rescuing dogs, we’re also opposed to vaccination. We have NEVER seen a truly healthy vaccinated animal.

ALL 27 veterinary universities in the USA are now teaching & endorsing Dr. Jean Dodds’ vaccine protocol. These are “conventional” veterinary schools, NOT natural, homeopathic or holistic. They no longer teach or recommend yearly re-vaccination; they do still recommend re-vaccination every 3 years….despite evidence & a study showing a vaccine provides at LEAST 7-14 years protection. Dr. Jean Dodds is a veterinary immunologist. If your vet, groomer, or animal facility says your animal(s) NEED to be re-vaccinated, they don’t know the scientific facts. Please feel free to share this information with them.

Vaccines are ONLY to be given to perfectly healthy animals. This is stated in the literature that accompanies every vial of vaccine. If an animal has ANY health condition, including fleas, worms, parasites, or ANYTHING causing them to not feel well, they are NOT to be vaccinated. Animals with allergies, kidney disease/failure, liver disease/failure or any health condition are NEVER to be vaccinated or re-vaccinated as this damages their immune system & worsens the existing health condition. Every natural or holistic veterinarian we know believes the auto-immune problems we’re seeing in our animals are the result of vaccination. You may obtain a Vaccine Waiver Consent Form & a Sample Rabies Exemption Letter by contacting the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association at 410-569-0795. We’re also sending you a sample Vaccine Exemption Letter in a separate email.

California law now allows for vaccination exemption. A case was settled in court & there is now legal precedence on this. A dog owner had been notified by his local animal control that his dog had to have another rabies vaccine before they would issue a dog license. His dog had a health issue & couldn’t be re-vaccinated. The authorities wouldn’t accept his vet’s vaccine waiver letter, so the man took it to court & won. The State of CA signed rabies vaccine exemption into law on October 7, 2011. It’s known as “Molly’s Bill” AB258. CA is the 14th state to do so. Many other states also allow for this. Check with your state if you live in another area.

Presently, the same dose is given to all sizes of dogs. Tiny dogs like Yorkies receive the same dose as 180 lb. dogs & combination vaccines are routinely given (5 in 1, 7 in 1). This doesn’t make sense. It’s also dangerous & harmful. If you do opt to re-vaccinate your animal(s), ask your vet about adjusting the dose & only do 1 vaccine at a time (not the combo types), at least 3-4 weeks apart. We know vets who now give only 1/4 of the usual amount to small animals; this is the dosage recommended by the holistic vets we know & use. Dr. Peter Dobias in Canada has titer tested dogs given the 1/4 dose & all showed the amount gives the full coverage needed. For those who choose to vaccinate, hopefully the days of “same dose for a mouse as for an elephant” will soon be a thing of the past.

If you choose to vaccinate, vaccines must be given 1 at a time so the immune system can properly process them. Single vaccine means for 1 disease only in the vaccine & at the time of vaccination. Combination vaccine means it’s 2 or more diseases in the same vaccine, such as distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, & parainfluenza. When a combination vaccine is given, the immune system is overdosed, overwhelmed, & cannot properly process them. Your animal then doesn’t have the proper protection the vaccine is designed for & their immune system is damaged. Many vets continue to re-vaccinate dogs every year. Many also re-vaccinate for Corona virus. It’s impossible for a dog over 6 weeks of age to contract Corona virus. The Bordatella vaccine only covers 2 of the 8 varieties & it’s equivalent to a cold in a human. When your dog’s immune system is strong & they’re in good health, they don’t tend to catch things like this from other dogs. A strong immune system is able to fight off viruses, bacteria & other “bad guys.” Rabies vaccine should never be given with any other vaccine, drug, procedure or treatment. This is the most damaging of all vaccines.

Did you know that human vaccine labeling is under FDA control, but animal vaccination labeling is NOT? The FDA regulates human vaccines and does not invoke federal privilege to indemnify human vaccine manufacturers from liability in state courts. However, interestingly the government agency which oversees veterinary vaccines DOES invoke federal privilege to limit animal vaccine manufacturers from liability in state courts. Therefore, when adverse reactions occur with veterinary vaccines there is no “deep pocket” to tap for liability. Perhaps it’s because many vets and pharmaceutical companies make large profits on repeat yearly or three-year vaccinations. There is also no reporting agency that keeps track of the problems caused by animal vaccines or how many animals have bad reactions to vaccines. Sadly, we see it all too often because of the number of dogs we’re involved with in rescue. Conventional vets don’t recognize many of the signs of vaccinosis (vaccine poisoning).

Vaccines do NOT prevent disease or immunize, they sensitize.
Vaccines cause encephalitis, inflammation of the brain – (Dr. Russell Blaylock, famous Board-certified neurosurgeon & author, says all vaccines cause brain inflammation).
Vaccines are deadly poisons and contain toxins.
Vaccines can cause the disease they’re designed to prevent – we’ve seen this many times in the rescue dogs.
Vaccines shed into the environment spreading disease.
Vaccines disarm and unbalance the immune system.

Common substances found in vaccines include:

Aluminum gels or salts of aluminum which are added as adjuvants to help the vaccine stimulate a better response. Adjuvants help promote an earlier, more potent response, and more persistent immune response to the vaccine.
Antibiotics which are added to some vaccines to prevent the growth of germs (bacteria) during production and storage of the vaccine. No vaccine produced in the United States contains penicillin.
Antifreeze – Also known as Ethylene Glycol. May lead to kidney, liver, blood and central nervous system (CNS) disorders. Harmful or fatal if swallowed. Effects include behavioral disorders, drowsiness, vomiting, diarrhea, visual disturbances, thirst, convulsions, cyanosis, and rapid heart rate, CNS stimulation, depression, cardiopulmonary effects, kidney disorders. May also lead to liver and blood disorders. Produces reproductive and developmental effects in experimental animals.
Borax – Traditionally used as a pesticide, including ant killer. Suspected cardiovascular or blood toxicant, endocrine toxicant, gastrointestinal or liver toxicant and neurological toxicant. Found to cause reproductive damage and reduced fertility in a study on rats.
Egg protein – Ordinarily, persons/animals who are able to eat eggs or egg products safely can receive these vaccines.
Formaldehyde is used to inactivate bacterial products for toxoid vaccines, (these are vaccines that use an inactive bacterial toxin to produce immunity.) It’s also used to kill unwanted viruses and bacteria that might contaminate the vaccine during production. Unsafe at any level.
Glutaraldehyde – Poisonous if ingested (worse if injected). Causes birth defects in experimental animals.
Methanol – A volatile, flammable and poisonous liquid alcohol. Used as a solvent and an antifreeze compound in fuel. In the body it is metabolized to formaldehyde.
Monosodium glutamate (MSG) and 2-phenoxy-ethanol which are used as stabilizers in a few vaccines to help the vaccine remain unchanged when the vaccine is exposed to heat, light, acidity, or humidity
MSG – An FDA web page called “FDA and Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)” states “Injections of glutamate in laboratory animals have resulted in damage to nerve cells in the brain.” Symptoms include but are not limited to: burning and tingling sensations of the upper extremities, numbness, facial pressure, chest pain, headache, rapid heartbeat, nausea and drowsiness.
Thimerosal is a mercury-containing preservative that is added to vials of vaccine that contain more than one dose to prevent contamination and growth of potentially harmful bacteria.
2 Phenoxyethanol Developmental toxicant, reproductive toxicant. Metabolic poison (i.e. interferes with the metabolism in all cells). Capable of disabling the immune system’s primary response.
Ammonium Sulfate, Gentamicin Sulfate, Neomycin Sulfate, Polymyxin B, Polysorbate 20/80, Sorbitol, Polyribosylribitol, Beta-Propiolactone, Amphotericin B, Animal organ tissue and blood, Aborted human fetal tissue and albumin, Large foreign proteins, Latex, Animal and Human viruses ( – also CDC website).

More info on vaccine ingredients; this is an excellent website for health information:

In a survey of over 4,000 dogs performed by US & UK vets, owners were asked, if your dog is ill, when did he become ill in relation to vaccination? We’ve been astounded by the results so far:

91% of Ataxia cases occurred within three months of a vaccine event
81% of dogs who had tumors at their vaccine sites, first developed the tumors within three months of being vaccinated
78.6% of dogs with encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) first developed the condition within three months of being vaccinated
73.1% of epileptic dogs first became epileptic within three months of being vaccinated
65.9% of dogs with colitis developed the condition within that first three months
64.9% of dogs with behavioral problems started to be a problem within three months of vaccination
61.5% of dogs developed liver failure within three months of being vaccinated.

French scientist, Michel Aubert’s study shows that the chances of a dog or cat developing rabies in the United States that has had one rabies vaccination is less than one in eight million, (<1:8,000,000). By contrast, you have a greater than one in 600,000 chance of being struck by lightning if you stand in a thunderstorm. (Aubert Michel F, The practical significance of rabies antibodies in cats and dogs, Scientific and Technical Revue, 11(3) 735, 1992 Paris, France). An independent study on vaccine safety & efficacy has NEVER been done, yet the current multiple vaccination protocols are accepted as good, safe, sound "medicine." The only vaccine required by law is rabies. If your animal has EVER had a bad reaction to any vaccine or has any health condition, they must never be re-vaccinated. Repeat vaccinations will worsen any health condition & damage their immune system permanently, making them unable to fight the condition/disease. If you absolutely must vaccinate for rabies, tell your vet you want a Thimerosol-free vaccine. Thimerosol (mercury) in vaccines has been linked to adverse reactions. Merial makes one- and three-year thimerosol-free rabies vaccines: IMRAB® 1 TF and IMRAB® 3 TF. Make sure you see “TF” on the label. (If your vet doesn’t carry the vaccine, you may have to vet shop to find the vaccine you want.) You might also ask the vet why he/she doesn’t carry it. Holistic vets carry this "safer" rabies vaccine. If you decide you MUST vaccinate, do it at the safest time. Vaccinate in the morning, early in the week, & don't leave the area for at least 1 hour, if possible. Watch for reactions for at least 48 hours. Reactions occurring when the closest vet's office is closed can prove disastrous, even fatal. Small dogs have more adverse reactions to vaccines than larger dogs, but they're dangerous to all animals. If your dog has ever been given Benadryl after being vaccinated, this is because your dog had an adverse reaction to the vaccine - even if the vet didn't tell you this is why they gave Benadryl. Animals who've had ANY adverse reaction to a vaccine are NEVER to be re-vaccinated & should be given a vaccine exemption letter by the vet. Preserving their health & immune system is so important so let's do everything possible to keep them healthy. If your vet won't do this for you, find another vet. There are homeopathic remedies that will help lessen vaccine damage; a homeopathic vet can tell you about these. They're inexpensive (about $8 for 80 pills); Sprout's, Mothers Markets, Whole Foods, & many online sources carry homeopathic remedies. Adverse Reactions to Vaccine are common & include: vomiting, lethargy, swelling (injection site, face, feet, tongue), rash, bumps, itchy/scratching, flu like symptoms (fever, coughing, muscle pain), irritability, whimpering/crying, seizure, pain (joints or elsewhere), respiratory or cardiac difficulties, constricted air passages resulting in panting & difficulties in breathing, sudden onset of diarrhea, lack of appetite, infection at injection site, neurological damage (confusion, lack of coordination), muscle damage (if the injection is not properly administered), unresponsive, shock, liver & kidney damage (vaccines contain a lot of toxic materials), & sarcoma (some dogs develop sarcomas in the injected area, which links the occurance of sarcomas to vaccinations). The most common symptoms of anaphylaxis are the sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, shock, seizures, coma, and death. The animals' gums will be very pale, and the limbs will feel cold. The heart rate is generally very fast, but the pulse is weak. There can be facial swelling. Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening, allergic reaction to something ingested or injected. If left untreated, it results in shock, respiratory and cardiac failure, and death. An anaphylactic reaction can occur as a result of vaccination. The reaction usually occurs within minutes to hours (less than 24) of the vaccination. If you dog has any of these symptoms get it to the veterinarian immediately for treatment. These symptoms typically develop within 30 minutes after the administration of the vaccines. For this reason, some vets prefer to keep the pet under surveillance immediately after the vaccine shots. If severe allergic reactions occur, the dog requires a dose of epinephrine, which is a substance that will immediately reduce the inflammation allowing the dog to breathe normally. If the dog doesn’t get help within 7 minutes after the symptoms occur, the adverse reactions may be fatal, as the dog will not get sufficient oxygen. 30 Vaccine Induced Diseases: ** Once you've administered the needle, you can never change your mind. Please STUDY THE FACTS, don't live to regret it. There is NO safe vaccine & NO wellness after a vaccine. ALL vaccines cause brain inflammation, immune system suppression & other damage.** (very thorough article) (by another vet) Just ONE rabies vaccine can kill or permanently damage (it happened to my dogs & many others): It's the worst of all animal vaccines. Christina Chambreau, DVM - "Routine vaccinations are probably the worst thing that we do for our animals. They cause all types of illnesses but not directly to where we would relate them definitely to be caused by the vaccine. Repeating vaccinations on a yearly basis undermines the whole energetic well-being of our animals. Animals do not seem to be decimated by one or two vaccines when they are young and veterinary immunologists tell us that viral vaccines need only be given once or twice in an animal's life. First, there is no need for annual vaccinations and, second, they definitely cause chronic disease. As a homeopath, it is almost impossible to cure an animal without first addressing the problems that vaccines have caused to the animal, no matter what the species." Don Hamilton, DVM: "First, remembering that booster vaccines are unnecessary, we can stop all vaccination after one year of age for virtually all diseases. (Rabies is required by law so we need to work to change the laws so that they are in accordance with the facts rather than fear.) As repetition naturally increases the likelihood of problems, we can reduce side effects tremendously with no additional risk to the patient, simply by stopping adult boosters. Of course, there will still be some risk involved with even the initial vaccinations, but no risk of contracting the acute disease once the animal is immunized by these first vaccines. See below for duration of immunity to the various diseases for which vaccines are available. Secondly, all vaccines should be administered as single antigens. (An antigen is something that is capable of eliciting an immune response, in this case a viral or bacterial organism from which a vaccine is produced.) This means not using the polyvalent (combination) vaccines which have become so common these days. Natural exposure to diseases is usually one at a time, and the body is probably more successful at responding to only one antigen and producing immunity without adverse effects, rather than responding to a complex of antigens. Therefore, rather than giving a group of antigens together at three to four week intervals, individual components should be given using an alternating schedule with a minimum of repetition." Charles E Loops, DVM - "The first thing that must change with routine vaccinations is the myth that vaccines are not harmful. Veterinarians and animal guardians have to come to realize that they are not protecting animals from disease by annual vaccinations, but in fact, are destroying the vitality and immune systems of these same animals they love and care for. Homeopathic veterinarians and other holistic practitioners have maintained for some time that vaccinations do more harm than they provide benefits. Vaccinations represent a major assault on the body's immune system.... Vaccine induced chronic diseases range from life-threatening conditions such as auto-immune crises to conditions destroying the quality of life of an animal as in chronic skin allergies." John Fudens, DVM - "All mandatory rabies vaccination programs are colorable law, in that they have been passed & mandated upon the pet owning public by certain vested interest groups. Who are these groups? First & foremost are veterinarians, in general, & veterinarian medical organizations. Second are the local animal control personnel, bureaucrats & politicians. What are their reasons? GREED, POWER & CONTROL. Both these large powerful interest groups stand to benefit greatly by having rabies mandated by colorable law." "Veterinarians receive a large percentage of both their gross income & profit from vaccines given in the office. On average vaccines cost 60 to 95 cents per dose & are charged to the client at $15 to $25 per injection & substantially more in the large cities. Therefore, if veterinarians lobby to have a colorable law passed to give rabies vaccine every year that enhances their financial picture." "The vaccines, particularly rabies, are a political & economic scam being forced upon pet owners because they do not know the truth." Dr. Gerhard Buchwald, West Germany, specialist of internal diseases & participant in about 150 trials of vaccination victims - "Vaccination is not necessary, not useful, does not protect. There are twice as many casualties from vaccination as from AIDS." "Every vaccine produces harm. ALL vaccines are and have been causing ischemic (impaired blood flow) damages - to all - creating a plethora of chronic illnesses, disease, and in some instances...death. The injury from vaccination is additive, each vaccination further injures.” Dr. Andrew Moulden MD, PhD ( - loaded with info). Dr. Moulden started his research to prove vaccine safety; he found the opposite. Dr. Moulden took degrees in 3 disciplines on his quest to understand autism & the ASDs (autism syndrome disorders). Russell Blaylock, MD (neurosurgeon) - "Vaccination can kill you or ruin your life. All vaccination causes brain inflammation." Guylaine Lanctot, MD - "Immunization is total nonsense! More than that is what's hidden from people about vaccines. They are dangerous. One child out of five has overwhelming disabilities from vaccines - neurological problems, seizures. The medical establishment works closely with the drug multinationals whose main objective is profits, & whose worst nightmare would be an epidemic of good health. Lots of drugs MUST be sold. In order to achieve this, anything goes: lies, fraud, & kickbacks. Doctors are the principal salespeople of the drug companies." "Never do anything against conscience, even if the state demands it."
