Vets and Vaccines : This topic appears more and more regularly as I search the globe for factual reports. Encouraged in the early days of owning Scottie Dogs, I continue to insure mine, and as a consequence HAVE to have them vaccinated. You might have noted my post of the Facebook Page that I want to take this issue up with the Insurance Companies in the weeks/months to come.
I’ve attached two documents for your consideration. The paragraph below relates to an article I found today, whilst hunting for why insurance companies do what they do, and got sidetracked into reading it. It supports a document I was sent in early February, which is the interview carried out by Dogs Naturally Magazine in March/April 2012. The two articles may repeat each other, but even so, they are both compelling reports. I’m not against Vets, there is a time and a place for them. We need them to be honest to themselves and in turn they should be able to be honest with us because surely, if they keep on helping us to kill our canine companions they won’t remain in business much longer!
the most common and most harmful veterinary practice is over-vaccination. Not only do the vaccines cause a lot of damage in our dogs, but nearly every vaccine vets give to our dogs is unnecessary. Pay attention to that sentence: nearly every vaccine given to our dogs is useless and they get all of the risk and none of the reward. How could this happen? How can vets cause so much disease in our dogs without even knowing it?
It’s Friday …. and usually I like to add a little fun into the equation with my Friday Funnies…. but somethings just have to be done – sorry. I’m sure though that I’ll find something to make us all smile before the day is done!
