New Vaccination Protocols Adopted!!

2011-08-18 11:15

Dr. Jean Dodd's NEW vaccine protocol - PERMISSION TO CROSSPOST


Dr. W. Jean Dodd's vaccination protocol is now being adopted by ALL 27

North American veterinary schools. I highly recommend that you read

This. Copy and save it to your files. Print it and pass it out at dog

Fairs, cat shows, kennel club meetings, dog parks, give a copy to your

Veterinarian and groomer, etc., etc. Get the word out.

Hi everyone.... THIS is wonderful news, that the veterinary schools are

Now going to be teaching that over-vaccination of pets (once a year

"boosters") is only not necessary, but in some cases can be harmful or

Deadly! It has information for both dogs and cats. There still is an

Ongoing study regarding the Rabies vaccine. Most states now allow

(reluctantly) 3 year Rabies, but the study is collecting data on

Whether or not even that may be too much. They are looking at 8 or 10

Year Rabies!

I hope you all stop having yearly boosters for your pets. If you're

Concerned with immune levels, have the vet run a Titer test. THEN and

Only then, if the levels are below acceptable, should you have a

Booster. After all, when is the last time you had a "booster" for

Smallpox, or whooping cough, or anything else you had shots for as a

Child? Immune systems work the same in all mammals, and the concept

That pets have to have yearly shots doesn't make any more sense than if

You had have shots every year. If mammal¢s immune systems were that

Weak in fending off these things, all of them, us included, would have

Been extinct years ago!



I would like to make you aware that all 27 veterinary schools in North

America are in the process of changing their protocols for vaccinating

Dogs and cats. Some of this information will present an

Ethical & economic challenge to vets, and there will be skeptics. Some

Organizations have come up with a political compromise suggesting

Vaccinations every 3 years to appease those who fear loss of income vs

Those concerned about potential side effects.

Politics, traditions 20 or the doctor's economic well being should not

Be a factor in medical decision.



"Dogs and cats immune systems mature fully at 6 months. If a modified

Live virus (MLV) vaccine is given after 6 months of age, it produces an

Immunity which is good for the life of the pet (I.e: canine distemper,

Parvo, feline distemper). If another MLV vaccine is given a year later,

The antibodies from the first vaccine neutralize the antigens of the

Second vaccine and there is little or no effect. The titer is not

"boosted" nor are more memory cells induced."< BR>

Not only are annual boosters for parvo and distemper unnecessary, they

Subject the pet to potential risks of allergic reactions and

Immune-mediated hemolytic anemia. "There is no scientific documentation

To back up label claims for annual administration of MLV vaccines."

Puppies receive antibodies through their mother's milk. This natural

Protection can last 8-14 weeks. Puppies & kittens should NOT be

Vaccinated at LESS than 8 weeks. Maternal immunity will neutralize the

Vaccine and little protection (0-38%) will be produced. Vaccination at

6 weeks will, however, delay the timing of the first highly effective

Vaccine. Vaccinations given 2 weeks

Apart suppress rather than stimulate the immune system. A series of

Vaccinations is given starting at 8 weeks and given 3-4 weeks apart up

To 16 weeks of age. Another vaccination given sometime after 6 months

Of age (usually at 1 year 4 months) will provide lifetime immunity.





Distemper & Parvo *"According to Dr. Schultz, AVMA, 8-15-95, when a

Vaccinations series given at 2, 3 & 4 months and again at 1 year with

MLV, puppies and kitten program memory cells that survive for life,

Providing lifelong immunity." Dr. Carmichael at Cornell and Dr. Schultz

Has studies showing immunity against challenge at 2-10 years for canine

Distemper & 4 years for parvovirus. Studies for longer duration are

Pending. "There are no new strains of parvovirus as one manufacturer

Would like to suggest. Parvovirus vaccination provides cross immunity

For all types." Hepatitis (Adenovirus) is one of the agents known to be

A cause of kennel cough. Only vaccines with CAV-2 should be used as

CAV-1 vaccines carry the risk of "hepatitis blue-eye" reactions &

Kidney damage.

*Bordetella Parainfluenza: Commonly called "Kennel cough".

Recommended only for those dogs boarded, groomed, taken to dog shows,

Or for any reason housed where exposed to a lot of dogs. The intranasal

vaccine provides more complete and more rapid onset of immunity with

less chance of reaction. Immunity requires 72 hours and does not

protect from every cause of kennel cough. Immunity is of short duration

(4 to 6 months).*

*RABIES - There have been no reported cases of rabid dogs or cats in

Harris, Montgomery or Ft. Bend Counties [ Texas ] but there have been

rabid skunks and bats so the potential exists. It is a killed vaccine

and must be given every year.

*Lyme disease-Lyme disease is a tick born disease which can cause

lameness, kidney failure and heart disease in dogs. Ticks can also

transmit the disease to humans. The original Ft. Dodge killed bacteria

has proven to be the most effective vaccine. Lyme disease prevention

should emphasize early removal of ticks. Amitraz collars are more

effective than Top Spot, as amitraz paralyzes the tick's mouthparts

preventing transmission of disease.





Multiple components in vaccines compete with each other for the immune

system and result in lesser immunity for each individual disease as

well as increasing the risk of a reaction. Canine Corona Virus is only

a disease of puppies. It is rare, self limiting (dogs get well in 3

days without treatment). Cornell & Texas A&M have only diagnosed one

case each in the last 7 years. Corona virus does not cause disease in

adult dogs.*

*Leptospirosis vaccine is a common cause of adverse reactions in dogs.

Most of the clinical cases of lepto reported in dogs in the US are

caused by serovaars (or types) grippotyphosa and bratsilvia. The

vaccines contain different serovaars eanicola and ictohemorrhagica.

Cross protection is not provided and protection is short lived . Lepto

vaccine is immuno-supressive to puppies less than 16 weeks.





Giardia is the most common intestinal parasite of humans in North

America , 30% or more of all dogs & cats are infected with giardia. It

has now been demonstrated that humans can transmit giardia to dogs &

cats and vice versa.*

Heartworm preventative must be given year-round in Houston .



New vaccines in development include: Feline Immunodeficiency Virus and

cat scratch fever vaccine for cats and Ehrlichia [one of the other tick

diseases, much worse than Lyme] for dogs.



Most vets recommend annual boosters and most kennel operators require

them. For years, the pricing structure of vets has misled clients into

thinking that the inherent value of an annual o ffice visit was in the

"shots". They failed to emphasize the importance of a physical exam for

early detection of treatable diseases. It is my hope that you will

continue to require Rabies & Kennel cough and emphasize the importance

of a recent vet exam. I also hope you will accept the new protocols and

honor these pets as currently vaccinated. Those in the boarding

business, who will honor the new vaccine facilities, are reluctant to




Dogs & cats no longer need to be vaccinated against distemper, parvo, &

feline leukemia every year. Once the initial series of puppy or kitten

vaccinations and first annual vaccinations are completed, immunity from

MLV vaccines persists for life. It has been shown that cats over 1 year

of age are immune to Feline Leukemia whether they have been vaccinated

or not.

Imagine the money you will save, not to mention fewer risks from side

risk of mediated hemolytic anemia and allergic reactions are r educed

by less frequent use of vaccines as well as by avoiding unnecessary

vaccines such as K-9 Corona virus and chlamydia for cats, as well as

ineffective vaccines such as Leptospirosis and FIP. Intranasal vaccine

for Rhiotracheitis and Calici virus, two upper respiratory viruses of

cats provide more complete protection than injectable vaccines with

less risk of serious reactions.

The AAHA and all 27 veterinary schools of North America are our biggest

endorsement for these new protocols.*

Georgia Canines for Independence

This worthy organization trains and provides service animals for a variety of assistance uses. GCI dogs purchases the animals and then spends two years in their training only to give them away for service to their human partners. Tim and Ramona have an amazing dedication to this work and rely solely upon charitable support for their program.
