Hello Sepp, Sharing our personal grief with the forum. I had two dogs in
2006 [one black, another white] Since 1993, our private vet had been giving
annual booster for anti rabies and distemper. in September 2006, the black
one was given another booster. From very next day, he stopped eating. Seven
days later, blood test revealed abnormal kreatinine level..indication of
severe kidney problem. Died about 30 days later. The white one is now 16+,
perhaps another few months left. The private vets induced us to the vaccinations.
This article of yours is an eye opener for me personally and to other dog
lovers. In India we are terrified of rabies and anything the vets say, we
would slavishly do. Thanks for posting this vital information. Arun

If this man had given this puppy heroin, his vet would be in no doubt
as to cause and effect. It's amazing how they don't connect the dots.
In fact, a study conducted by Purdue University found that
vaccinated, but not unvaccinated, dogs developed auto-antibodies to a
wide range of their own biochemicals. One of these was laminin, which
coats kidney cells. Vaccinated dogs were attacking their own kidneys.
Vaccines can also cause the disease you're attempting to prevent. In
the Canine Health Concern vaccine survey, 100% of dogs with
leptospirosis contracted it just after being vaccinated against it.
Leptospirosis, of course, attacks the kidneys - and the puppy had

No answer! I stopped vaccinating in 1990 after a similar incident and this
was only done at the new owner's request so NEVER again will a vaccine come

who has done a great deal of research into the vaccine issue. She added
these comments: "Kidney failure is a common sequel to vaccination.
The basement membrane is susceptible to damage from a clogging that results
as the immune complexes are drained via the lymphatics. The kidney is a
big part of the lymphatic system. The body tries to clear the toxins in
the vaccines and there is damage done in this clearing mechanism.

recommends nor advocates - even in Lepto endemic areas.

a Lepto vaccine."
dog lovers, I suspect, have difficulty in understanding the science surrounding
vaccination, so they'd rather trust the 'experts' than struggle to understand.
Dr Jordan sent me one of her diary notes, which isn't technical in the least.
Perhaps this will have meaning for you?
a depressing day today. I had to kill a patient who was vaccinated every
year, fed crappy food, and was so immune exhausted that he had everything
wrong - coccidia, yeast overgrowth, cancer. I took pictures of his poor
wracked body. I only had about a month to try to reverse his condition.
It was insurmountable due to the years of visits to the vet and resulting
complete adrenal exhaustion and immunosuppression. He was just spent. "The
day got worse. I heard barking in the reception and found a tiny eight pound
terrorist barking at a tall noble greyhound. The tall dog was looking desperate
and his sides were heaving. I went back to finish the patient I was with.
By the time I had finished, I'd missed the next patient and the owner of
the practice had him. "I was able to walk by the room for another reason

the dog was shot up with vaccines. "After lunch, I returned to see
two of the kennel workers carrying that dog's dead body back to the freezer
for burial. He had gone home and died. The owner was very upset. Apparently,
he wasn't expecting to have vaccinated his pet and his pet die shortly thereafter.
"I looked at the record. The dog had been a cardiac patient for a while,
with terrible heart murmurs. That was why he was so concerned about the
barking terrier, if only eight pounds. The dog could hardly get around,
so why was he administered an eight way MLV vaccine? "There appears
to be very little compassion in this field. Very little honesty and integrity
for the patient of the client. I will get blasted by most vets reading this,
but the situation is true. It's a desperate situation."

encephalitis (which is an acknowledged vaccine reaction), cause paralysis

it does mirror other experiences. Epilepsy is another symptom of encephalitis,
