Scotties at high risk of vaccinosis

vaccine dogSadly I read this weekend that scotties are at high risk of vaccinosis. They appear on the list , compiled by Dr Jean Dodds, of breeds at highest risk of vaccinosis.

I’m aware of all the publicity doing the rounds on annual vaccinations, but wasn’t conscious of our precious scotties being on such a list!

Dr Jean Dodd’s report was accompanied by another interesting article in my in-box and that was from Dr Karen Becker – “A hidden Vaccine Side-effects that many pet owners (and vets) never Suspect” – again well worth reading.

My two 14 month old scotties, Tayler and Sparta, are due their first annual ‘boosters’ this month (October 2016) and it worries me significantly as we’ve been put on the Lepto-4 protocol. The adverse publicity surrounding this ‘new’ vaccine, is not only causing me concerns, but many others have voiced their anxiety too.

Annual boosters and vaccinations constantly appear on  Facebook pages and groups and any decision is a worry. Although I’ve added in links here to the newspaper articles published in July 2016, they unfortunately still leave me in the dark as to what is the right and proper decision to take to safeguard my “highly at risk of Vaccinosis” pets.
