According to a 2011 study in the journal Cell Research, in engineering crops like corn and soybean, novel proteins are created that can assault the immune system and cause allergies and illnesses, especially in the offspring of mothers fed GMO foods. Diminished nutrient content is a concurrent issue.

“The results of most of the few independent studies conducted with GM foods indicate that they may cause hepatic, pancreatic, renal and reproductive effects and may alter hematological, biochemical and immunologic parameters,”concluded Artemis Dona and Ioannis S. Arvanitoyannis, of the Department of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology at the University of Athens Medical School, in their 2009 study on the effect of GM foods on animals.

Detection of Glyphosate Residues in Animals and Humans

January 31, 2014

Discussions

Glyphosate residues cannot be removed by washing and they are not broken down by cooking [23]. Glyphosate residues can remain stable in foods for a year or more, even if the foods are frozen, dried or processed.

Conclusions

Glyphosate residue could reach humans and animals through
feed and excreted in urine. Presence of glyphosate in urine and its accumulation in animal tissues is alarming even at low concentrations. Unknown impacts of glyphosate on human and animal health warrants further investigations of glyphosate residues in vertebrates and other non-target organisms.

Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Merrick And Purina - Jan 25, 2016

The companies that make pet foods usually need synthetic vitamins and minerals to make those foods pass AAFCO (The Association of American Feed Control Officials) standards. And they rely on other companies to sell them these vitamins and minerals, which are usually combined into something called a premix.

These premixes are most often manufactured in China … or India, or other countries with a less than stellar track record when it comes to food safety.

Really good article by Dr. Will Falconer, DVM

"How Safe is Your Animal from GMOs?"

Bottom line: plant breeding and animal breeding is generally safe and has a long history. GM is far more insidious genetic manipulation that is in its infancy and is already raising grave concerns for the health of people, plants, and animals.

Therefore, if you’re feeding processed pet food or horse feed, and the label includes any corn or soy (or products derived from either), or canola oil or beet derivatives, odds are very high your animals are being exposed to GMOs.

As is often the case, animals are studied to determine if humans might get sick from some new experimental drug or chemical or process. Here are some findings worth taking caution from:

“In 2009, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) stated that, “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with genetically modified (GM) food,” including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system.

The AAEM has asked physicians to advise all patients to avoid GM foods.

Mass duck death caused by 'junk food' and 'human impact'

"It turns out these ducks are fed junk food, so they are getting fed bread and other things, which is not healthy for them," Preney said. "So, they are not able to digest these foods that have high carbohydrates and they are not getting the nutrition that they need and they are starving to death essentially."

From "Dogs Naturally Magazine"

The sad truth for dogs is that half of them will get cancer. That's right ... statistically, if you own two dogs one of them will get cancer. It's never been more important to start making changes in what your dog eats, how often he's vaccinated and the number of drugs and chemicals he's exposed to. These changes seem small but they can literally save your dog's life.

Is It Time to Go Organic for Your Dog's Food?

Many of today’s foods contain toxins such as pesticides, herbicides, antibiotics, growth hormones, and chemical additives that have been linked to serious health issues in both people and animals. To minimize this toxic assault, I feed my family, including my four-legged son, Chase, as many organic foods as possible. Let’s take a look at why “going organic” might make sense for your canine companion.

Many people confuse “natural” foods and “organic” foods, believing the terms are interchangeable. However, there is no legal definition or regulation of natural in human or pet food, so manufacturers can use this claim without following a specific standard. As a result, the word “natural” on a label might have more to do with marketing than with the purity of the ingredients.

Historic Settlement: Wildlife Agency Will Finally Examine How Roundup, Atrazine Harm 1,500 Endangered Species

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will analyze the impacts of atrazine and glyphosate — the two most commonly used pesticides in the United States — on 1,500 endangered U.S. plants and animals under the terms of a historic settlement reached today with the Center for Biological Diversity. The agreement ensures that the Fish and Wildlife Service will develop conservation measures on these two pesticides, along with propazine and simazine, which together represent nearly 40 percent of annual pesticide use in the United States.

The Big Scam: Rabies Vaccination written by John Fundens, D.V.M.

I would like to give you, the reader, the truth about the so called required vaccinations, particularly rabies. There are two basic forms of law. One is the legal Constitutional and Common law that this country was founded on, and the other is "colorable" law passed by Administrative agencies/bureaucrats who have been given so called authority to pass laws. Black's Law Dictionary 5th Edition defines colorable law as "That which is in appearance only, and not in reality, what purports to be, hence counterfeit, feigned, having the appearance of truth." Yes, I study the law, am a paralegal, and have an extensive law library.

So any and all mandatory rabies vaccination programs are colorable law, in that they have been passed and mandated upon the pet owning public by certain vested interest groups. Who are these groups? First and foremost are veterinarians, in general, and veterinarian medical organizations. Second are the local animal control personnel, bureaucrats and politicians. What are their reasons? GREED, POWER AND 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 and profit from vaccines given in the office. On average vaccines cost 60 to 95 cents per dose and are charged to the client at $15 to $25 per injection and 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.

Current Veterinary Therapy by Kirk, the textbook bible for veterinarians in general, has an article on canine and feline vaccines by two researchers. Near the end of the article is a paragraph called Annual Vaccinations. It states "The practice of annual vaccinations lacks scientific validity or verification. There is no immunological requirement for annual vaccinations. The practice of annual vaccinations should be considered of questionable efficacy unless it is used as a mechanism to provide an annual physical examination or is required by law." Sure, if we can't manipulate you with annual vaccinations let's pass a law to get you into the office. Nice trick!

Dr. Suzanne Humphries: "Interesting article that was sent to me by a veterinarian friend. It has to do with established herd immunity in the animal world that is being upset by vaccines. Much the same as measles vaccines did for us. BTW I have known dogs that were successfully treated for parvovirus with liposomal vitamin C."

Parvovirus By: Patricia Jordan DVM, Catherine O’Driscoll and Dana Scott

If there is one lesson life has to teach us, it is that life goes hand-in-hand with risk. Too many people believe they can eliminate risk with vaccination and this just isn’t the case. In a short term clinical or field study, parvo vaccination may appear protective: unfortunately, nobody is taking a long, hard look at the long-term fallout and what it can mean for our dogs, for us and for the environment.

Sounds like you need to balance the risk to your pet and your family from exposure to the disease and the risk of the vaccine. It is NOT black and white. This article from the AVMA, and not from some crackpots, better defines the issue.

Leptospirosis

https://www.avma.org/public/PetCare/Pages/Leptospirosis.aspx

Leptospirosis is a disease caused by infection with Leptospira bacteria. These bacteria can be found worldwide in soil and water. There are many strains of Leptospira bacteria that can cause disease. Leptospirosis is a zoonotic disease, which means it can be spread from animals to people. Infection in people can cause flu-like symptoms and can cause liver or kidney disease. In the United States, most cases of human leptospirosis result from recreational activities involving water. Infection resulting from contact with an infected pet is much less common, but it is possible.

Leptospirosis is more common in areas with warm climates and high annual rainfall but it can occur anywhere.

Risk factors for leptospirosis

Dogs are most commonly affected. Leptospirosis in cats is rare and appears to be mild although very little is known about the disease in this species. Common risk factors for leptospirosis in dogs residing in the United States include exposure to or drinking from rivers, lakes or streams; roaming on rural properties (because of exposure to potentially infected wildlife, farm animals, or water sources); exposure to wild animal or farm animal species, even if in the backyard; and contact with rodents or other dogs.

Dogs can become infected and develop leptospirosis if their mucous membranes (or skin with any wound, such as a cut or scrape) come into contact with infected urine, urine-contaminated soil, water, food or bedding; through a bite from an infected animal; by eating infected tissues or carcasses; and rarely, through breeding. It can also be passed through the placenta from the mother dog to the puppies.

Signs of leptospirosis

The signs of leptospirosis in dogs vary. Some infected dogs do not show any signs of illness, some have a mild and transient illness and recover spontaneously, while others develop severe illness and death.

Signs of leptospirosis may include fever, shivering, muscle tenderness, reluctance to move, increased thirst, changes in the frequency or amount of urination, dehydration, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, lethargy, jaundice (yellowing of the skin and mucous membranes), or painful inflammation within the eyes. The disease can cause kidney failure with or without liver failure. Dogs may occasionally develop severe lung disease and have difficulty breathing. Leptospirosis can cause bleeding disorders, which can lead to blood-tinged vomit, urine, stool or saliva; nosebleeds; and pinpoint red spots (which may be visible on the gums and other mucous membranes or on light-colored skin). Affected dogs can also develop swollen legs (from fluid accumulation) or accumulate excess fluid in their chest or abdomen.

Leptospirosis may be suspected based on the exposure history and signs shown by the dog, but many of these signs can also be seen with other diseases. In addition to a physical examination, your veterinarian may recommend a number of other tests such as blood tests, urine tests, radiographs (x-rays), and an ultrasound examination.

Treatment and prevention

Leptospirosis is generally treated with antibiotics and supportive care. When treated early and aggressively, the chances for recovery are good but there is still a risk of permanent residual kidney or liver damage.

Currently available vaccines effectively prevent leptospirosis and protect dogs for at least 12 months. Annual vaccination is recommended for at-risk dogs. Reducing your dog’s exposure to possible sources of the Leptospira bacteria can reduce its chances of infection.

Although an infected pet dog presents a low risk of infection for you and your family, there is still some risk. If your dog has been diagnosed with leptospirosis, take the following precautions to protect yourself:

Administer antibiotics as prescribed by your veterinarian;
Avoid contact with your dog’s urine;

If your dog urinates in your home, quickly clean the area with a household disinfectant and wear gloves to avoid skin contact with the urine;

Encourage your dog to urinate away from standing water or areas where people or other animals will have access;

Wash your hands after handling your pet.

If you are ill or if you have questions about leptospirosis in people, consult your physician. If you are pregnant or immunocompromised (due to medications, cancer treatment, HIV or other conditions), consult your physician for advice.

Cancer in our Pet Population By Patricia Jordan DVM

Many practices still revaccination at yearly or triennial intervals even now, despite recommendations to not vaccinate needlessly coming from the AVMA, AAHA and the AAFP. Without informed consent and without full disclosure to pet owners, veterinary medical doctors continue to burden pet owners with vaccination reminders and their pets with immune assault.

Furthermore, there is no excuse for vets who vaccinate pets exhibiting symptoms of illness – including allergies, joint disease, irritable bowel symptoms, etc. This practice is in direct violation of the FDA regulations.

Chilling: How Monsanto’s Agent Orange Is Still Used Today
And how GMOs could be 'bioweapons'
Print Friendly
gas_mask_toxic_735_250
Christina Sarich BY CHRISTINA SARICH
POSTED ON MAY 6, 2015


Are you eating America’s left-over chemical warfare to be used as agricultural poison on our food supply?

“Between 1962 and 1971, US military forces sprayed millions of gallons of herbicides over South Vietnam. Agent Orange accounted for much of the total sprayed.” ~ NAS Press Release – July 28, 1993.


The legacy of Agent Orange and Monsanto’s attempt to defoliate the hiding places of the Viet Cong is still apparent in modern Vietnam, but how those chemicals are being used now, in the aftermath of war, should be even more chilling to the observant individual.

During the Vietnam War, Agent Orange chemicals were sprayed primarily from C-123 twin-engine aircraft carriers. This was called Operation Ranch Hand. The total number of gallons of herbicide sprayed are in the millions.

One of the primary chemicals used in Agent Orange, named so because the canisters they were transported in were painted with bright orange stripes, is 2,4-D, but other chemicals were also contained within those canisters.

Aside from hundreds of thousands of birth defects reported by the Vietnamese from the spraying of these chemicals, war veterans began to notice health problems that they attributed to exposure to Agent Orange. It took nearly 20 years after the Vietnam War ended for Congress to inquire about the ramifications of using these chemicals in Vietnam, and the health damage suffered by Vietnam Vets.

According to Casarett and Doull’s Toxicology, 1996 edition:

“TCDD (dioxin) has been shown to be extremely toxic to a number of animal species. Mortality does not occur immediately. It appears that the animals’ environment suddenly becomes toxic to them.”
Related: Is Monsanto’s Glyphosate the New Agent Orange?

This is likely why many Vets did not see symptoms from Agent Orange exposure until many years after the fact. Eventually, Congress asked the Institute of Medicine (IOM) National Academy of Sciences (NAS) to perform an in-depth study on these chemicals, and they did find them highly toxic. But at what cost to veterans who showed adverse health symptoms earlier?

Moreover, the US military, who commissioned Monsanto and Dow, among other chemical companies to create Agent Orange, knew it was highly toxic.


Dr. James Clary, a scientist at the Chemical Weapons Branch, Eglin Air Force Base, who designed the herbicide spray tank and wrote a 1979 report on Operation Ranch Hand told Senator Daschle in 1988, said:

“When we (military scientists) initiated the herbicide program in the1960s, we were aware of the potential for damage due to dioxin contamination in the herbicide. We were even aware that the ‘military’ formulation had a higher dioxin concentration than the ‘civilian’ version due to the lower cost and speed of manufacture. However, because the material was to be used on the ‘enemy,’ none of us were overly concerned. We never considered a scenario in which our own personnel would become contaminated with the herbicide.”~ Quoted by Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt, 1990
GMOs Not Used As Food, But As Bioweapons?
Though few will state this publicly, and Monsanto, Dow, etc. will vehemently deny it, the world population is now “the enemy.” From Dicamba to 2,4-D to glyphosate, the chemicals being used on our crops are meant for our consumption, but not as food, and not to ‘feed’ the world. Some say it’s actually part of an over-arching plan to ‘control its population.’

On the surface, it looks as though these companies are greed-motivated, which they are, but the truth of their great chemical dreams is more subverting.

Case in point: many GM companies work with and through AGRA, which is supported by the Rockefeller Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to “feed the starving African children.” You may have noticed that many GM foods are sent to Africa and other poor nations as part of “aid” packages.

Nevermind that these very same multinational companies have scoured these countries for every natural resource they have and could solve simple diseases with a two cent vitamin, not by creating things like genetically modified ‘Golden Rice’ to prevent malnourished children who go blind (or so they claim). Instead, these companies focus on switching out heirloom, viable seed with GM seed.

For example, when asked how AGRA gets “improved seeds” (that’s what they call GM seed) to farmers, they say:

“There are three ways. AGRA makes grants to farmer organizations, public breeding institutes, and private start-up seed companies. Farmer organizations and public breeding institutes mainly produce cuttings of vegetatively propagated crops like sweet potato and cassava. For these crops, once farmers have the improved varieties, they can replant it for many years. But for seed crops, such as maize and sorghum, the best method for getting fresh, certified seed to farmers is via locally owned and managed seed companies.”
AGRA fails to mention that companies like Monsanto have infiltrated or have fully taken over “locally owned and managed seed companies” all over the world.

When asked if resource-poor farmers can really afford to purchase new seed every year, the AGRA website offers this missive:

“Yes. In fact, we are finding that seed companies regularly sell out of their stocks every year, and still cannot keep up with demand. Selling seed in small packages and making it available at the village level has greatly increased farmer adoption of improved seed. Mobile money has likewise boosted sales of seed in remote villages. AGRA also works with farmer organizations that offer group buying opportunities, as well as access to credit. What we are increasingly seeing is that, by adopting improved seed, farmers are becoming more prosperous and more able to purchase additional seed, as well as other inputs.”
Again, no mention of farmer suicides all over India due to seed monopolies and herbicide use that forces a farmer (ironically, the ones who grow food) to starve to death because GM seeds aren’t as viable as GM companies promised they would be. Now, even US farmers who want to grow organic crops are facing bankruptcy. This was all part of the plan.

Add to these unsavory facts, the observance that the FDA and USDA have continually turned a blind eye when it has come to protecting the food supply. Glyphosate residue is now in almost every food we eat, from packaged foods sold in the grocery store to eggs and even meat and poultry because the animals that were fed GM Bt corn and soy were eating traces of toxic chemicals.

Furthermore, 2,4-D resistant crops were just given a rubber stamp, even though the public strongly opposed them.

Jon Rappaport has recently questioned whether Monsanto is doing secret biological warfare research on Maui, and if this might be the real reason behind Monsanto’s secrecy pertaining to certain documents in a recent court battle in the islands.

According to a nonprofit corporate watchdog, the Sunshine Project, the following companies are conducting illegal bio-weapons warfare research in open air experiments on Maui:

“Monsanto, Abbott Laboratories, BASF Plant Science, Bristol-Myers Squibb, DuPont Central Research and Development, Eli Lilly Corp., Embrex, GlaxoSmithKline, Hoffman-LaRoche, Merck & Co., Pfizer Inc., Schering-Plough Research Institute, and Syngenta Corp. of Switzerland.

Additionally, since 9/11, the White House has called for spending $44-billion on biological warfare research, a sum unprecedented in world history, and an obliging Congress has authorized it.”
All these GM crops and the chemicals that go with them are warfare. Clear and simple. Does the military machine ask for America’s permission when they decide to invade a foreign country? No. False flag attempts are less believable now, and therefore less successful at starting WWIII, but the war drums beat on in a different way. They beat in our own backyards.

As unsuspecting consumers we eat other chemicals as well.

Another clue for this chemical warfare can be found in the products made by food companies like Heinz, Knorr, SlimFast, and Best Foods, just to name a few, believed to have ties with the Bilderberg Group. Stanley Monteith, an expert on world food supply, points to the huge amounts of man-made chemicals in the food on our local grocery-store shelves, naming aspartame as an example. Dr. Monteith explains:

“Aspartame is a chemical made up of aspartic acid and phenylalanine. And it breaks down into formaldehyde, eventually into wood alcohol. It produces all sorts of problems, mental problems, and it impacts on literally every organ in the body. They know this, there are extensive animal studies that show this, and it never should’ve been put into our food.”
Chemical additives like sodium fluoride also make us infertile, quick to age, and more docile. Despite very damning evidence that fluoride is extremely toxic, even coming from Harvard, multinational companies and governments continue to put it in our water supplies.

“‘At the end of the Second World War, the United States Government sent Charles Eliot Perkins, a research worker in chemistry, biochemistry, physiology and pathology, to take charge of the vast Farben chemical plants in Germany.

‘While there he was told by German chemists of a scheme which had been worked out by them during the war and adopted by the German General Staff.

‘This was to control the population in any given area through mass medication of drinking water. In this scheme, sodium fluoride occupied a prominent place.”
When you add up the chemicals of Monsanto, other biotech companies, food companies, and toxic industrial waste products purposely put in our water, along with toxic drugs and ‘medical’ treatments that kill us instead of cure us, what are we left to believe?

Monsanto’s legacy was not left in Vietnam, nor was the plan for world population control ignored in the latest creation of the secretive TPP agreement whose details even Congress is not privy to.

When we stop seeing Monsanto as simply a “seed maker” and a creator of “food” – we will start seeing them in their true light, and the repercussions of their sinister actions can finally be dealt with accordingly. This most hated company in the world (and its multinationals) don’t feed the world – they poison it with biological warfare chemicals.

CT vet put on probation by the vet board speaks out about the amount of rabies vaccine given to small dogs.

“You can’t give a 2 pound dog and a 180 pound dog the same volume of a rabies vaccine. The little guys are getting sick, some are dying. That’s the problem.”

John Robb, DVM

An Act to Protect the Pets from Over-Vaccination - To The Pet Lovers from Connecticut and around the World!

Soon I will announce the date of the public hearing to educate our legislators as to the horrific crime of over-vaccination; a crime that has left dead and injured pets and bereaved pet owners in its wake. A crime that violates Connecticut’s animal anti-cruelty laws which states that poisoning of pets is a crime subject to fine and imprisonment and yet daily in this not so great state of Connecticut pets are injected with toxins for no scientific reason but rather to force the pet owners to come to the vet and spend money, while your pet is poisoned!
Some veterinarians have theorized that it is worth it because then the pet gets an annual exam and we vets can do preventative medicine! What??!! Force pet owners to come to the vet to get poisoned so the vet can keep them well. How crazy is that thinking??


You the pet owners, you the citizens have got to come to Hartford, Ct. You have got to come to the public hearing and speak for your pets. I will tell you why.


The CVMA will come – the Connecticut Veterinary Medical Association.


The AVMA will come – the American Veterinary Medical Association.


AAHA will come – the American Animal Hospital Association.


The Mars Candy Bar Company will come - which now owns over 3000 veterinary hospitals.


All four of these entities have sold out to the pharmaceutical companies who dump millions of dollars into their coffers for “continuing education”, free medications and free services. They are welcomed by the Deans of Veterinary Schools across this USA to give free bees to the veterinary students and pay for more “continuing education” to poison the veterinary student’s minds and indoctrinate them into their agenda. The pharmaceutical company’s agenda, the AVMA’s Agenda, the CVMA’s agenda and the Veterinary Schools agenda , and the Mars Candy Bar companies agenda - Profits over Pets!! They all compromise their moral values for money. And who suffers – you and your pets.


These organizations will be sending in “moles”. These “moles” are going to make false statements like, “you are vaccinating an immune system so the size of the animal does not matter!?” And these organizations will tell you pets are “family members”. If your pets were family member to them why are they killing them for profit? If they were really family members why do these organizations want to keep them seen as simple property by law? Why? -because they have NO liability when you the “pet” owner arrive at veterinary clinics to have your “animal” poisoned by over-vaccination daily. Let me ask one simple question, if vaccines should be administered one milliliter to every animal why does the rabies vaccine insert give these instructions?– Give 2 milliliters to a 1200 pound horse, one milliliter to a 150 pound great Dane and 1 milliliter to a 6 pound Yorkshire terrier and 1 milliliter to a 2 pound kitten??!! Something is wrong here, very wrong!!


I will soon announce the date for the public hearing. All pet owners must unite and come to this public hearing. You the pet owner must speak for your pet, the veterinary industry will not, they will speak for profit. They are going to tell you if you lower the volume of rabies vaccine by weight you will all be at risk to get rabies from your pet. They will try and make you paranoid, afraid. Do not let their fear tactics change your heart.


I, John M. Robb am a veterinarian for 34 years; I have administered tens of thousands of vaccines. I have been lowering my dose appropriately for all this time. I have never had one pet develop any disease I have vaccinated against but I have prevented many pets from getting sick and dying from over-vaccination. The truth is one rabies vaccine protects the pet for life!! If a simple blood titer is done and it is protective that pet does not need any further vaccination. A rabies certificate does not indicate immunity. We must give the lowest volume of vaccine, the lowest dose, and the lowest number of vaccines that stimulated the immune system to achieve a protective titer. Once this is established any further vaccine given only puts the pet at risk for a vaccine reaction while conferring no added protection. It’s criminal to do this and it stops now!!


Get ready to converge on Hartford, Connecticut for this historic public hearing. The lives of our pets depend on it! We must Protect the Pets!! Circulate this post to all pet lovers around the world. This is the hour of destiny. Destiny to Protect Our Beloved Pets!


God Bless, Dr. Robb

Look on my website, www.protectthepets.com . Many vets joined the movement and signed up to protect the pets. At least they took a step to recognize the problems in our industry. Hopefully some have a like heart. More will join in time and then you the public will have a directory for "safe vets" . Doc

Not Fit for a Dog! The Truth About Manufactured Cat and Dog Food - 2012

Not Fit for a Dog! reveals how the pet food industry has turned the recycling of human food and agricultural
by-products and wastes into a multibillion dollar business that puts profits before the health of animals. Despite
advertising claims that manufactured pet food is “scientifically formulated” for animals’ dietary needs, the ingredients
in many pet foods are selected first for their cheapness, rather than for their nutritive value. The result
is pet food so nutritionally unbalanced that it frequently causes diet-related diseases and even death.

Veterinarian Speaks Out, Presents Decades of Research Linking Pet Deaths to Over-Vaccinations is Met with Laughter

“The vaccine in question is the rabies shot. Dr. Robb says that the shot works for a pet’s entire lifetime (and a blood test can determine if it is still in effect). However, largely because of the immense influence and power of the vaccine manufacturers, the rabies shot is being recommended annually. He says this shot has made pets instantly vomit and fall ill, develop immune disorders, cancers, and can even cause death.

Not only is the number of vaccines not regulated, the dose is also not adjusted for the body weight, making the shot potentially dangerous and even lethal for smaller-sized animals.”

Adverse events diagnosed within three days of vaccine administration in dogs.

RESULTS: 4,678 adverse events (38.2/10,000 dogs vaccinated) were associated with administration of 3,439,576 doses of vaccine to 1,226,159 dogs. The VAAE rate decreased significantly as body weight increased. Risk was 27% to 38% greater for neutered versus sexually intact dogs and 35% to 64% greater for dogs approximately 1 to 3 years old versus 2 to 9 months old. The risk of a VAAE significantly increased as the number of vaccine doses administered per office visit increased; each additional vaccine significantly increased risk of an adverse event by 27% in dogs < or = 10 kg (22 lb) and 12% in dogs > 10 kg.

CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Young adult small-breed neutered dogs that received multiple vaccines per office visit were at greatest risk of a VAAE within 72 hours after vaccination. These factors should be considered in risk assessment and risk communication with clients regarding vaccination.

4. Vaccines
Disrupt the immune system and inhibit the growth of friendly bacteria.

6. Diet
Dogs eating processed diets or diets high in carbohydrates (and any kibble on the market will be high in carbohydrates) will have unbalanced gut flora. Carbohydrates, especially those with a higher glycemic load, are the preferred food for many harmful bacteria. Grains and carbohydrates will also cause an overgrowth of fungus and yeast. Dairy products, genetically modified (GMO) foods, preservatives, coloring and chlorinated water can also harm the microbiome.

Veterinarian John Robb Challenges Banfield And Petsmart On Rabies Vaccination

“If you know that you are going to inject a vaccine into a pet that has the potential to kill him and you know the pet doesn’t even need it, then you can’t do it ethically and morally, no matter what the law is,” Robb said, adding that giving half doses of vaccine is an accepted practice of most veterinarians.

Vaccine researcher Dr Jean Dodds also asserts that vaccine doses can be safely reduced. She says she has been vaccinating toy breeds with half doses for years.

“Vaccinations are up to the discretion of the veterinarian. It is not required to follow the label direction as long as you have informed consent and discussed it with the owner,” said Dr Dodds.

Herbicide Glyphosate found in Pet Foods - 2015

Fox: “Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide which contains the active ingredient glyphosate, recently designated a possible carcinogen, is actually absorbed by GM (genetically modified) crops genetically engineered to be resistant to this herbicide. Most corn, soy, sugar beet, cotton, and canola produced in the U.S. is GM, as is much imported rice. Glyphosate is also used to dessicate wheat and other crops before harvesting.

My concerns about this herbicide, among others, getting into the food chain and in what we consume ourselves, feed to farmed and laboratory and zoo animals, and to our dogs and cats have been recently confirmed. Research scientist Dr. Anthony Samsel, Deerfield, NH has shared some of his findings prior to his scientific report being published. Using High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) the accepted EPA method of analysis, he found levels of glyphosate ranging from 0.022 – 0.30 mg/kg in cat and dog foods. Brands evaluated, all of which tested positive, were in manufactured cat and dog foods from several manufacturers: Purina Cat Chow Complete, Purina Dog Chow Complete, Purina Beyond Natural-Simply Nine, Rachel Ray Zero Grain, Rachel Ray Nutrish Super Premium, Iams Proactive Health, 9 Lives Indoor Complete, Friskies Indoor Delights.

Dr. Samsel informs me that the pet food industry “adds NaNO2 (sodium nitrite) to some pet foods as a preservative. This is very common and in the presence of glyphosate is deadly. Glyphosate reacts continuously over time with NO2 and produces N-Nitrosoglyphosate which is a nasty carcinogen along with phosphonic acids AMPA and MAMPA. Another scary scenario is Nitrite formation (NO2) from nitric oxide (NO) which is the end product in cells of animals e.g. like macrophages and result of Nitrous acid formation which reacts with glyphosate resulting in N-Nitrosoglyphosate. This is another reason why this stuff needs to be immediately pulled from the market”.

(Title of the peer-reviewed research article by Anthony Samsel and Stephanie Seneff including these findings will be published in September in a special issue of The Journal of Biological Physics and Chemistry is: Glyphosate, Pathways to Modern Diseases IV: Cancer and Related Pathologies.”

Samsel: “...It is disturbing to also note that N-Nitrosoglyphosate is not the only concern of the metabolites and reaction products found in their animal experiments. Monsanto showed a number of metabolites other than Aminomethylphosphonic acid (AMPA) which included an unidentified compound known as compound #11 occurring with frequency equal to or greater than N-N-nitrosoglyphosate. We still do not know what that compound is or what its effects might be on biology. In my opinion, Glyphosate should never have been brought to market based on those early studies.”

Seneff: “Hmmm. "The Purdue studies also found that vaccinated dogs were developing autoantibodies to their own collagen." Probably due to glyphosate contamination in the vaccine. Glyphosate gets into collagen by mistake in place of glycine and makes it allergenic. About 25% of the amino acids in collagen are glycines.”

The Purdue Vaccination Studies and Auto-antibodies

This means that the vaccinated dogs — ”but not the non-vaccinated dogs”– were attacking their own fibronectin, which is involved in tissue repair, cell multiplication and growth, and differentiation between tissues and organs in a living organism.

The vaccinated Purdue dogs also developed autoantibodies to laminin, which is involved in many cellular activities including the adhesion, spreading, differentiation, proliferation and movement of cells. Vaccines thus appear to be capable of removing the natural intelligence of cells.

Autoantibodies to cardiolipin are frequently found in patients with the serious disease systemic lupus erythematosus and also in individuals with other autoimmune diseases.

Respectfully...

Are GMOs causing an increase in allergies?

According to a recent national survey, the potential that GMOs might cause allergies is a prime concern of consumers. The survey was conducted by GMO Answers, an initiative of the Council of Biotechnology Information, an industry trade group. Scientists and experts provide answers but are not paid to do so. The answer to that question is “no”, writes Lisa D. Katic, a food policy consultant:

A test pet owners can do at home. If your dog's urine kills the grass, put your pet on non gmo pet food (Trader Joe's) for a month and see the difference. Also, if your cats are vomiting pet food frequently, like several times a week, if you buy non gmo, the vomiting will stop. If gmo (glyphosate) in our food kills grass, what is it doing to our and our pet's health?

Scientist Anthony Samsel tells a story of how he got interested in studying gmo (glyphosate) in food. He was trying to keep some pests out of his garden, so he used his own urine. He was surprised to see that his urine killed the grass.

December 6, 2015 interview...

Tony: "Apart from the food that we are eating, if it is sprayed on grassland, if it is sprayed over forests where humans will not eat things, but others - insects, worms, birds, deer and moose, ...can they too have the wrong building block in their biology?"

Anthony: "Yes, yes, yes. Glyphosate is a synthetic amino acid. It mimics the natural amino acid glycine, and yes all life forms will be affected. All life forms will be negatively affected by this chemical. This chemical should not be in any biology. This chemical should not be manufactured, should not be used, this operation needs to be shut down lock, stock, and barrel."

"When chemicals are mixed with other chemicals often there is synergistic effects unknown consequences...

They added in so that any results that showed that glyphosate caused a particular type of cancer or affect, was zeroed out and so that is how they were able to tell the EPA that glyphosate is harmless by the use of historical controls. That practice needs to be banned in science.

The industry doesn't want this discussed. The government doesn't want this discussed. The Obama Administration, the Bush Administration, they were promoting biotechnology, this is part of this country's economic engine and when you start treading on people's toes in this area, you are interfering with vast fortunes that are being developed.

They had the EPA seal those documents so that no one would ever revisit them and look at the hard evidence."

At 1:02:00 Regarding spraying non-gmo crops (non gmo corn)
"...and I'm looking at the changes that the herbicide induces in the plant itself, and glyphosate herbicide, all the herbicides for that matter, induce changes in the plant...it dies, but in the process of dying it also changes its chemistry...and so I have a result that shows how glyphosate influences the mineral composition of the non gm corn in the death state, so if you go through and dessicate a crop, spray a crop prior to harvest, that's not a genetically engineered crop, you're changing it's mineral content, its fatty acid content and its vitamin content. You're altering it. So these things are going into our diet as well. I mean when they spray wheat or they spray barley or oates, they're crossing changes in the food itself. It's like microwaving your food. It's unhealthy to microwave your food because it changes the chemical structure of the food. That's why the Russians banned microwave ovens...when you start messing with fatty acids you can make a food unhealthy to eat...if they are out of balance, it's going to become inflamatory to your biology and I've seen this in some of the genetically engineered varieties."

Really good article by Dr. Will Falconer, DVM "How Safe is Your Animal from GMOs?"

Bottom line: plant breeding and animal breeding is generally safe and has a long history. GM is far more insidious genetic manipulation that is in its infancy and is already raising grave concerns for the health of people, plants, and animals.
Therefore, if you’re feeding processed pet food or horse feed, and the label includes any corn or soy (or products derived from either), or canola oil or beet derivatives, odds are very high your animals are being exposed to GMOs.

As is often the case, animals are studied to determine if humans might get sick from some new experimental drug or chemical or process. Here are some findings worth taking caution from:
“In 2009, the American Academy of Environmental Medicine (AAEM) stated that, “Several animal studies indicate serious health risks associated with genetically modified (GM) food,” including infertility, immune problems, accelerated aging, faulty insulin regulation, and changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system.

The AAEM has asked physicians to advise all patients to avoid GM foods.

Scientist Anthony Samsel tells a story of how he got interested in studying gmo (glyphosate) in food. He was trying to keep some pests out of his garden, so he used his own urine. He was surprised to see that his urine killed the grass.

Condemning Monsanto With Bad Science Is Dumb:

Did you see the latest indictment of Monsanto making the rounds? It’s a “peer-reviewed” paper in the journal Entropy, co-authored by Anthony Samsel and Stephanie Seneff, blaming glyphosate, the compound in the herbicide Roundup, for virtually all the ills that can befall us.

But here’s the thing — they made it up. Or, all but. They say, “We explain the documented effects of glyphosate and its ability to induce disease, and we show that glyphosate is a ‘textbook example’ of exogenous semiotic entropy: the disruption of homeostasis by environmental toxins.” Exogenous semiotic entropy! That sounds serious. Google it, though, and you find that those three words occur together in only place. This paper. They made it up. At first, I thought the whole thing was one of those jargon-laden academic hoaxes but, alas, it isn’t.

Story:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/tamar-haspel/condemning-monsanto-with-_b_3162694.html

-----------------

She’s baa-aack.

Remember Stephanie Seneff? When last Orac discussed her, she had been caught dumpster diving into the VAERS database in order to torture the data to make it confess a “link” between aluminum adjuvants in vaccines and acetaminophen and—you guessed it!—autism. It was a bad paper in a bad journal known as Entropy that I deconstructed in detail around two years ago. As I said at the time, I hadn’t seen a “review” article that long and that badly done since the even more horrible article by Helen Ratajczak entitled Theoretical aspects of autism: Causes–A review (which, not surprisingly, was cited approvingly by Seneff et al). Seneff, it turns out, is an MIT scientist, but she is not a scientist with any expertise in autism, epidemiology, or, for that matter, any relevant scientific discipline that would give her the background knowledge and skill set to take on analyzing the epidemiological literature regarding autism. Indeed, she is in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT, and her web page there describes her thusly:

"Stephanie Seneff is a Senior Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. She received the B.S. degree in Biophysics in 1968, the M.S. and E.E. degrees in Electrical Engineering in 1980, and the Ph.D degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 1985, all from MIT. For over three decades, her research interests have always been at the intersection of biology and computation: developing a computational model for the human auditory system, understanding human language so as to develop algorithms and systems for human computer interactions, as well as applying natural language processing (NLP) techniques to gene predictions. She has published over 170 refereed articles on these subjects, and has been invited to give keynote speeches at several international conferences. She has also supervised numerous Master’s and PhD theses at MIT. In 2012, Dr. Seneff was elected Fellow of the International Speech and Communication Association (ISCA).

In recent years, Dr. Seneff has focused her research interests back towards biology. She is concentrating mainly on the relationship between nutrition and health. Since 2011, she has written over a dozen papers (7 as first author) in various medical and health-related journals on topics such as modern day diseases (e.g., Alzheimer, autism, cardiovascular diseases), analysis and search of databases of drug side effects using NLP techniques, and the impact of nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxins on human health."


So what we have here is a computer scientist interested in artificial intelligence who thinks she can switch her expertise to medicine, biology, and epidemiology. Let’s just put it this way. An undergraduate degree in biophysics in 1968 does not qualify one to do this sort of research, and, as I discussed in her foray into autism and vaccine epidemiology, it really does show. Badly. The paper was so embarrassingly incompetent that I’m surprised any journal was willing to publish it.

When Homeopathy Becomes Truly Dangerous:

I have often written about homeopathy, not because it is a particularly popular or important therapy (only about 3.5% of Americans, for example, report having tried it) but because it is one of the clearest and most egregious examples of pseudoscience. The case against homeopathy is very strong, and it is clearly theoretically implausible and clinically proven to be nothing more than a placebo.

---------------

A recent post on the Holistic Care for Animals Facebook page (which is described as “the Facebook presence of the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy.”) directed readers to a page promoting “Emergency Vet Alternatives.” This page, part of a site run by homeopathic veterinarian Will Falconer, provides some of the most egregiously dangerous advice for pet owners I have come across. Dr. Falconer promotes his “homeopathic emergency kit,” which he suggests can substitute for a visit to an emergency veterinary clinic even in the case of serious I injury and illness.'

'I’m building a custom homeopathic emergency kit, with remedies that will get your animal well in the common emergencies you are likely to confront. Things like:
• parvo
• vomiting after eating spoiled food
• bee stings and worse, the allergic reactions to them that can shut off airways
• burns
• injuries: car accidents, tails in a car door, sprains, etc.
• bite wounds, cuts, gunshot wounds
• bloat
• pain from overexertion
• splinters, fox tails, thorns
• abscesses
• shock

http://skeptvet.com/Blog/2013/10/when-homeopathy-becomes-truly-dangerous/

---------------

Canine Influenza and Quack Vets:

As an example of egregious and dangerous misinformation about canine influenza, we can turn to our old model of veterinary quackery, Dr. Will Falconer. This fellow regularly attacks science-based veterinary medicine and essentially recommends magic as a substitute. He has a fondness for homeopathy, despite the abundant evidence that it is useless pseudoscience, and he has a particular loathing for vaccines. Predictably, he recommends homeopathy as treatment and prevention for canine influenza, providing an excellent model of the ridiculous fake science of homeopathy, and he derides vaccination as a preventative measure with arguments that are clearly and demonstrably false.

To begin with, he has posted his process for determining which homeopathic products to use to treat canine influenza. This involves the usual nonsense of listing symptoms which are in no way unique to this disease and then turning to collections of substances organized by the symptoms they are supposed to cause in healthy individuals based on so-called provings. Extremely dilute versions of these substances are then given one at a time. If the pet gets better, the treatment gets the credit. If not, another remedy is chosen just as capriciously and on and on until the patient either recovers or dies or the owner realizes that they are being scammed.

Dr. Falconer used this process to select a classic homeopathic remedy, Nux vomica (the poison strychnine diluted into non-existence), as the “cure” for canine influenza. However, after a couple of clients tried a different product (phosphorus, also diluted into non-existence) and their dogs got better, he decided this was the first choice cure. The fact that none of these patients were ever actually tested to see if they had influenza doesn’t bother Dr. Falconer, which given his demonstrated belief in magic isn’t surprising. One can easily see how this sort of extended process of trying one fake remedy after another without obtaining a real diagnosis or making any effort to employ real medical treatment could be dangerous for a dog who actually has influenza, or any other serious illness. It is ethically inexcusable for a veterinarian to practice this way, and it astounds and depresses me that Dr. Falconer is permitted to do so.

More Misleading and Unethical Advertising for Alternative Veterinary Medicine:

Dr. Karen Becker, a prominent CAVM vet who writes for one of the most notorious sites promoting quackery through denigrating conventional medicine, Mercola.com, recently blogged about the much-reported decline in veterinary office visits. In this article, she makes a number of assumptions for which there is little or no evidence, and several accusations about the inadequacy of conventional veterinary care.

----------

"For some reason the methods used to maintain a pet’s vibrant good health – everything from species-appropriate nutrition to maintenance chiropractic care to homeopathic remedies and herbal supplements – fall into the category of ‘alternative medicine.’

Isn’t it strange that natural modalities used not to cure illness (although they do that, too), but to maintain health are thought of as ‘alternative,’ yet chemical drugs and invasive surgery are considered mainstream health care?"


Actually, it isn’t strange at all. There is no reliable scientific evidence for the preventative health benefits of maintenance chiropractic care, homeopathic remedies or herbal supplements. These products are touted as “wellness” care based solely on the personal beliefs of the vets who use them and the beliefs of previous generations of vets and animal owners. This is the same level of evidence that has supported such winning strategies as bloodletting, purging, and animal sacrifice as preventative health measures.

65 Ways Rabies Vaccination Can Harm Your Dog By Patricia Jordan DVM

There are countless ways rabies vaccination can harm your dog – often permanently. I’m going to tell you about just 65 of those ways below.

As a holistic veterinarian, our outdated rabies vaccination laws are one of the things that upset me the most. All over the US and in most of Canada, the law requires you to vaccinate your dog against rabies every three years. In most US states your dog’s first rabies vaccine must be a one year shot, with revaccination every three years after that.

None of these laws take into account the real duration of immunity of rabies vaccines, Studies by Ronald Schultz PhD show that rabies vaccines protet for a minimum of 7 years – and probably for the life of the animal.

And neither do the thousands of veterinarians in the US who are still vaccinating annually for rabies. They do this despite the fact that annual vaccination is neither required by law nor recommended by the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) Guidelines.

Pet Owner Warns Of Vaccine Dangers After Dog Dies

“I found out there’s a lot of senior dogs out there that can’t handle the full regimen of vaccinations,” she said.



However, what’s telling is that the vet features in the article, Jenna Mize, who works out of Austin, admits to insufficient science.

“The problem is there isn’t data on vaccines and older dogs, the science isn’t there, the research isn’t there,” she said.

http://vaxxter.com/pet-owner-warns-of-vaccine-dangers-after-dog-dies/




Parvo Vaccinations – What The Vet Won’t Tell You!

If you think about it, the vaccines contain the live virus, albeit modified, and they are designed to weaken the dog’s immune system, as that is how they are supposed to work – well, that’s the theory. And if that weren’t bad enough, many vaccines contain multiple viruses – anywhere from four to seven or eight at a time.


Finally, and perhaps most worrying of all, is the fact that research has now shown that all vaccinations, not just Parvo ones, can weaken your dog’s immune system. This means that your dog will be more likely to become ill in the future.


Other side-effects of vaccinations include chronic inflammation, which will cause the obvious issues such as arthritis, but inflammation has now been proven to be a leading cause of cancer.

A Hidden Vaccine Side Effect That Many Pet Owners (and Vets) Never Suspect - 2016

http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites/healthypets/archive/2016/10/15/autoimmune-disease-dogs.aspx




Why I don’t Vaccinate My Dogs At All

According to Dr Larry Glickman and his team at Purdue University, serum and foreign proteins in vaccines can cause autoimmunity (i.e. cancer, leukaemia, organ failure, etc.). This research also indicates that genetic damage is possible, since vaccinated dogs developed autoantibodies to attack their own DNA. Research from the University of Geneva echoes this finding.

Over the years, many vets, particularly in America, have been saying that they think vaccines cause a diverse range of problems in animals. For example, Christine Chambreau DVM said, ‘Routine vaccinations are probably the worst thing 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.’ She is not alone in this view

http://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/why-i-dont-vaccinate-my-dogs-at-all/




PET VACCINATION - An Institutionalised Crime

Perhaps most worryingly, the Purdue studies found that the vaccinated dogs had developed autoantibodies to their own DNA. Did the alarm bells sound? Did the scientific community call a halt to the vaccination program? No. Instead, they stuck their fingers in the air, saying more research is needed to ascertain whether vaccines can cause genetic damage. Meanwhile, the study dogs were found good homes, but no long-term follow-up has been conducted.

At around the same time, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) Vaccine-Associated Feline Sarcoma Task Force initiated several studies to find out why 160,000 cats each year in the USA develop terminal cancer at their

vaccine injection sites.3 The fact that cats can get vaccine-induced cancer has been acknowledged by veterinary bodies around the world, and even the British Government acknowledged it through its Working Group charged with the task of looking into canine and feline vaccines4 following pressure from Canine Health Concern. What do you imagine was the advice of the AVMA Task Force, veterinary bodies and governments? "Carry on vacci­nating until we find out why vaccines are killing cats, and which cats are most likely to die."

In America, in an attempt to mitigate the problem, they're vac­cinating cats in the tail or leg so they can amputate when cancer appears. Great advice if it's not your cat amongst the hundreds of thousands on the "oops" list.

Are you still feeding your pets GMOs?

Many pet owners have connected the increased usage of GMOs with what appears to be an increase of tumors and health issues in dogs and cats.

— By Dr. Michael W. Fox*

Dogs and cats, like the proverbial canaries down the mine shafts, have become our sentinels. They alert us to health hazards in the home-environments we share and in the products and by-products of the same agribusiness food industry that feeds most of us and them. In the mid 1990s I began to suspect diet may play a role in a “cluster” of health problems not seen nearly as often as when dogs and cats were being fed conventional corn and soy. Since that time I have formed the professional opinion that there is sufficient proof from evidence based medicine that dietary ingredients derived from GM crops are not safe for companion animals, and by extension, for human consumers either.

http://www.petsandgmos.com/gmos/




Protect Your Pets from GMOs and Pesticides in Food

Our companion animals bring such joy and comfort to our lives. They are always there to greet us with a happy welcome home. Pets – like people – are suffering from unprecedented increased health risks including cancer and other debilitating diseases and disorders. Animal studies on animals fed genetically modified food have shown organ damage, potential pre-cancerous cell growth, damaged immune systems, allergies and more due to GM food. Switching to non-GMO and/or organic diets can help reduce the risk of health problems, assist our pets in recovery and support them to enjoy a longer life span . This website is a resource for pet owners to learn more about the health risks of GMOs and pesticides in pet food, and to provide information on healthier alternatives.

Dr. John Robb, DVM - Protect the Pets

“The MYTH-

“large numbers of circulating antibodies, a high titer, is a good thing.”

No, a high titer indicates overdosing and over vaccination!

Yes, we are entering into a new era by checking circulating antibodies, a blood titer, to protect the pets.
This is occurring because pet owners are educating each other to drive the change.

Since it’s known that vaccines cause adverse events, some of which lead to death, pet owners are demanding change and want vaccination protocols do be done in the safest manner possible.

This means the lowest dose and lowest number of vaccines to produce protection, easily measured by a blood titer, and stop there!

The blood titer is the only correlate with immunity, and there is no medical benefit to repeatedly vaccinating pets who already have achieved immunity and pushing the titer higher.
It’s malpractice to put a pet at risk of sickness or death injecting them with a booster vaccines that have no medical benefit!

When Titers are as Karlee’s > 15 IU/ML it shows their immune system has been assaulted by over vaccination. A pet with a titer of 0.1 IU/Ml, the lowest level of circulating rabies antibodies we can measure, is immune to rabies.
It’s YES or NO, Immune or not.

Pushing a titer to greater than 15 IU/Ml by repeatedly boosting with vaccines, does not make the pet more immune but it will sicken the pet with immune mediated disease, cancer, neurological disease, behavioral changes, chronic allergies and some will die- all due to dis-regulation of the immune system from over vaccination.

Pet owners who trusted the veterinary establishment were indoctrinated into a system of animal abuse by overdosing, over vaccinating and inappropriately vaccinating pets for pure profit motives. This has gone on for more than 30 years!!

2018 will see tremendous change as pet owners are taking this situation into their own hands, enlightened by the truth, to protect the pets! Doc”

Protect the Pets - John Robb, DVM

Two more vets join the movement...

Please Welcome Dr. Hayek a great new addition from the state of Texas!

Amy Hayek

What inspired you to join PTP?

At Animal Chiropractic Education Source we teach doctors through Animal Chiropractic why vaccines are often not only UN-necessary for animal health but also detrimental to the nervous system of the animal. We have recommended titers for years, and have written vaccine waivers for more than that. Find out more-

https://animalchiropracticeducation.com/



Welcome Dr. Jean Dodds!

World Renowned Dr. Jean Dodds Joins the Growing List of Veterinarians Uniting to Protect The Pets!

While we have been taught the Hippocratic Oath to “do no harm”, our initial education and continuing education continues to embrace overdosing vaccines for tiny pets, over-vaccination when not needed, and inappropriate vaccination for pets known to be at risk for adverse effects (vaccinosis). In my opinion, this stems primarily from the misguided opinion that regular booster vaccinations are needed and innocuous, while sustaining practice viability from reminding clients to seek regular veterinary preventive care and checkups for their pets.

When I began practicing in 1985, I believed vaccines caused no harm. But with time it became apparent there were problems. I reached out to Dr. Dodds in the late 80’s and early 90’s. She revealed the facts-based truth and legitimized my concerns. I know she has helped countless vets to stand up for the truth and live their Oath. Dr. Dodds has and continues to help untold number of pet owners protect their pets!

It’s a proud day for all! Please officially welcome Dr. Dodds to the Protect The Pets Movement!

Dr. John Robb: Protect the Pets

It’s all about the titer!

Some excellent data showing one rabies vaccine, followed by serial Titers. Not one pet needed another vaccine! The Titers never dropped below 0.1 IU/ml! One rabies vaccine can give protection for life!

The key is safe vaccination- lowest dose and one vaccine- produce a protective titer, and stop there! Periodically check the circulating antibodies, a blood titer. As long as it’s 0.1 IU/ml or greater, never vaccinate again. The pet is immune and can’t get rabies!

Thank you Dr. Roman for practical data generated at your real-life hospital! Protect the pets! Doc

Stephanie Seneff, MIT Scientist is a great page to follow as well.


Campaign group Moms Across America (MAAM) has announced that a study it commissioned found tiny traces of glyphosate in five vaccines: influenza, MMR, pneumococcal, hepatitis B and T Dap.

However, the testing method used by MAAM’s contractor, St. Louis-based company Microbe Inotech, has been challenged by experts as it is not accurate when measuring anything at very low concentrations.

These experts – including Peter Davies, emeritus professor of plant biology at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York – warn against the testing method called ELISA, which is short for enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.

ELISA is a fast method for determining the concentrations of chemicals by using a pairing of radioactive labeled antibodies. Often used for determining levels of cholesterol in blood, the test is not, however, accurate at measuring anything in the low parts per billion.

Professor Davies says the more accurate methods of measuring volumes in such a minute range would be techniques called gas chromatography and mass spectronomy, or GC/MS. Chemicals are ionized and the then-electrically charged chemical is measured by its mass and charge. This is a long and expensive procedure, but extremely accurate.

Everything that regulatory agencies and scientists know about glyphosate show the outcome of the MAAM-commissioned study is extremely questionable.

In an interview with the Genetic Literacy Project, Davies said: ‘At 1-10 parts per billion it is easy to think you are analysing a specific compound when in fact you are tracing some other compound. So unless I saw the full mass spectra to at least two decimal places I would say that glyphosate is not proven, and few labs have that degree of sophistication.

‘ELISA is notoriously susceptible to interference by the presence of other compounds, both in the positive and negative direction, and while fine for a first approximation, it is not acceptable for a definitive measurement. No top ranked journal in the field accepts ELISA as definitive proof for small molecules unless accompanied by further proof. The gold standard is multiple ion mass spectrometry.’

ELISA was developed as a fast and inexpensive way to screen water samples to decide on whether further testing would be required. A positive result on water in an ELISA test simply indicates that a more expensive and complicated test is required for confirmation as this method has been know to produce false positives. This screening test has been shown to be effective when used on water, but not food, beverages, or vaccines.

The MAAM study has not been released for review and has not appeared in a peer-reviewed scientific publication, another gold standard for assessing credibility. Instead, its results were shared online without supporting peer reviewed publication and were picked up by activist sites such as Natural News and Vaccine-Injury Info. This was supported by Stephanie Seneff and Anthony Samel, two scientists known for papers alleging the dangers of glyphosate – blaming it for causing illnesses ranging from Alzheimer’s to cancer, all claims that have been debunked by independent studies and regulators.

Previous claims by Seneff and Samel have been discredited by glyphosate studies using the preferred mass spectrometry instead of the ELISA method, including an independent report in 2016 by scientists affiliated with the independent German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR), which does risk assessments for the European Commission. BfR joined both the US Environmental Protection Agency and the European Food Safety Authority in finding no harm from glyphosate.

As well as being extensively reviewed and approved for use, glyphosate (a herbicide that inhibits a pathway found in plants but NOT in humans or animals) has a 40-year history of safe use.

Everything that regulatory agencies and scientists know about glyphosate shows the stated outcome of the MAAM-commissioned study is extremely unlikely. Glyphosate is either not present in vaccines, or is at such low levels as to be undetectable using the ELISA method. There is no credible evidence demonstrating the presence of glyphosate in vaccines.

Senef attended MIT, earning her bachelor of science in biophysics, a master's in electrical engineering, and a doctoral degree in computer science.

In 2011, Seneff began publishing research on topics related to biology and medicine in low-impact, open access journals, such as Interdisciplinary Toxicology and eight papers in the journal Entropy between 2011 and 2015. According to food columnist Ari LeVaux, Seneff's work in this area has made her "a controversial figure in the scientific community" and she has received "heated objections from experts in most every field she’s delved into". In 2013, she coauthored a paper that associated the herbicide glyphosate with a wide variety of diseases such as cancer and disorders such as autism. Discover magazine writer Keith Kloor criticized the uncritical republication of the study's results by other media outlets. Jerry Steiner, the executive vice president of sustainability at Monsanto, said in an interview regarding the study that "We are very confident in the long track record that glyphosate has. It has been very, very extensively studied." Seneff's claim that glyphosate is a major cause of autism and that, "At today’s rates, by 2025, half the kids born will be diagnosed with autism," has also been criticized. For example, the Pacific Standard noted that, contrary to Seneff's claims, many scientific reviews have found that the rise in autism rates over the past 20 years is due to changes in diagnostic practices, and that a number of studies, including a 2012 review in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, have found little evidence that glyphosate is associated with adverse development outcomes.

Seneff and her MIT colleagues have also done research on the health impacts of fat and cholesterol consumption in America. Based on this research, Seneff claimed that Americans are suffering from a cholesterol deficiency, not an excess. In 2014-2016 Seneff served as an expert witness for litigators seeking damages from Pfizer associated with their cholesterol drug Lipitor.

On June 14, 2016 Dr. Seneff and six other researchers presented their studies on Capitol Hill in a meeting incorrectly touted as a Congressional hearing. Presenters claimed that the US, with 5% of world's population, consumes 50% of the world's drugs and that US citizens consumed 25% of world supply of glyphosate.

Response from scientists and academics:
Clinical neurologist and skeptic Steven Novella criticized Seneff's Entropy publication for making "correlation is causation" assumptions using broad statistical extrapolations from limited data, saying "she has published only speculations and gives many presentations, but has not created any new data". Scientists and scholars such as Derek Lowe, a medicinal chemist, and Jeffrey Beall, a library scientist known for his criticism of predatory open access publishers, have separately criticized Seneff's paper for misrepresenting the results and conclusions of other researchers' work. Lowe and Beall also noted that Entropy and its publisher, MDPI, have a known history of publishing studies without merit.

A 2017 Review Article written by Kings College of London researchers and published by Frontiers in Public Health called Seneff's glyphosate health-risk research claims "a deductive reasoning approach based on syllogism" and "at best unsubstantiated theories, speculations or simply incorrect." And, Consumers Union senior scientist Michael Hansen characterized Seneff and her glyphosate claims as "nutty," "truly unhinged," and "dangerous."

In this article, she makes a number of assumptions for which there is little or no evidence, and several accusations about the inadequacy of conventional veterinary care.

----------

"For some reason the methods used to maintain a pet’s vibrant good health – everything from species-appropriate nutrition to maintenance chiropractic care to homeopathic remedies and herbal supplements – fall into the category of ‘alternative medicine.’

Isn’t it strange that natural modalities used not to cure illness (although they do that, too), but to maintain health are thought of as ‘alternative,’ yet chemical drugs and invasive surgery are considered mainstream health care?"


Actually, it isn’t strange at all. There is no reliable scientific evidence for the preventative health benefits of maintenance chiropractic care, homeopathic remedies or herbal supplements. These products are touted as “wellness” care based solely on the personal beliefs of the vets who use them and the beliefs of previous generations of vets and animal owners. This is the same level of evidence that has supported such winning strategies as bloodletting, purging, and animal sacrifice as preventative health measures.

If gmo (glyphosate) in our food kills grass, what is it doing to our and our pet's health?

Scientist Anthony Samsel tells a story of how he got interested in studying gmo (glyphosate) in food. He was trying to keep some pests out of his garden, so he used his own urine. He was surprised to see that his urine killed the grass.

December 6, 2015 interview...

Tony: "Apart from the food that we are eating, if it is sprayed on grassland, if it is sprayed over forests where humans will not eat things, but others - insects, worms, birds, deer and moose, ...can they too have the wrong building block in their biology?"

Anthony: "Yes, yes, yes. Glyphosate is a synthetic amino acid. It mimics the natural amino acid glycine, and yes all life forms will be affected. All life forms will be negatively affected by this chemical. This chemical should not be in any biology. This chemical should not be manufactured, should not be used, this operation needs to be shut down lock, stock, and barrel."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEiH9wWXZCQ

Again, Samsel...From July 15, 2015 GMO Free News Segment...

"When chemicals are mixed with other chemicals often there is synergistic effects unknown consequences...
Nobody's using organic feed stock...

...both Seralini and i have shown that their controls are contaminated...

They added in so that any results that showed that glyphosate caused a particular type of cancer or affect, was zeroed out and so that is how they were able to tell the EPA that glyphosate is harmless by the use of historical controls. That practice needs to be banned in science.

The industry doesn't want this discussed. The government doesn't want this discussed. The Obama Administration, the Bush Administration, they were promoting biotechnology, this is part of this country's economic engine and when you start treading on people's toes in this area, you are interfering with vast fortunes that are being developed.

They had the EPA seal those documents so that no one would ever revisit them and look at the hard evidence."

At 1:02:00 Regarding spraying non-gmo crops (non gmo corn)
"...and I'm looking at the changes that the herbicide induces in the plant itself, and glyphosate herbicide, all the herbicides for that matter, induce changes in the plant...it dies, but in the process of dying it also changes its chemistry...and so I have a result that shows how glyphosate influences the mineral composition of the non gm corn in the death state, so if you go through and dessicate a crop, spray a crop prior to harvest, that's not a genetically engineered crop, you're changing it's mineral content, its fatty acid content and its vitamin content. You're altering it. So these things are going into our diet as well. I mean when they spray wheat or they spray barley or oates, they're crossing changes in the food itself. It's like microwaving your food. It's unhealthy to microwave your food because it changes the chemical structure of the food. That's why the Russians banned microwave ovens...when you start messing with fatty acids you can make a food unhealthy to eat...if they are out of balance, it's going to become inflamatory to your biology and I've seen this in some of the genetically engineered varieties."

Condemning Monsanto With Bad Science Is Dumb:

Did you see the latest indictment of Monsanto making the rounds? It’s a “peer-reviewed” paper in the journal Entropy, co-authored by Anthony Samsel and Stephanie Seneff, blaming glyphosate, the compound in the herbicide Roundup, for virtually all the ills that can befall us.

But here’s the thing — they made it up. Or, all but. They say, “We explain the documented effects of glyphosate and its ability to induce disease, and we show that glyphosate is a ‘textbook example’ of exogenous semiotic entropy: the disruption of homeostasis by environmental toxins.” Exogenous semiotic entropy! That sounds serious. Google it, though, and you find that those three words occur together in only place. This paper. They made it up. At first, I thought the whole thing was one of those jargon-laden academic hoaxes but, alas, it isn’t.

Story:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/tamar-haspel/condemning-monsanto-with-_b_3162694.html

-----------------

She’s baa-aack.

Remember Stephanie Seneff? When last Orac discussed her, she had been caught dumpster diving into the VAERS database in order to torture the data to make it confess a “link” between aluminum adjuvants in vaccines and acetaminophen and—you guessed it!—autism. It was a bad paper in a bad journal known as Entropy that I deconstructed in detail around two years ago. As I said at the time, I hadn’t seen a “review” article that long and that badly done since the even more horrible article by Helen Ratajczak entitled Theoretical aspects of autism: Causes–A review (which, not surprisingly, was cited approvingly by Seneff et al). Seneff, it turns out, is an MIT scientist, but she is not a scientist with any expertise in autism, epidemiology, or, for that matter, any relevant scientific discipline that would give her the background knowledge and skill set to take on analyzing the epidemiological literature regarding autism. Indeed, she is in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT, and her web page there describes her thusly:

"Stephanie Seneff is a Senior Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. She received the B.S. degree in Biophysics in 1968, the M.S. and E.E. degrees in Electrical Engineering in 1980, and the Ph.D degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 1985, all from MIT. For over three decades, her research interests have always been at the intersection of biology and computation: developing a computational model for the human auditory system, understanding human language so as to develop algorithms and systems for human computer interactions, as well as applying natural language processing (NLP) techniques to gene predictions. She has published over 170 refereed articles on these subjects, and has been invited to give keynote speeches at several international conferences. She has also supervised numerous Master’s and PhD theses at MIT. In 2012, Dr. Seneff was elected Fellow of the International Speech and Communication Association (ISCA).

In recent years, Dr. Seneff has focused her research interests back towards biology. She is concentrating mainly on the relationship between nutrition and health. Since 2011, she has written over a dozen papers (7 as first author) in various medical and health-related journals on topics such as modern day diseases (e.g., Alzheimer, autism, cardiovascular diseases), analysis and search of databases of drug side effects using NLP techniques, and the impact of nutritional deficiencies and environmental toxins on human health."


So what we have here is a computer scientist interested in artificial intelligence who thinks she can switch her expertise to medicine, biology, and epidemiology. Let’s just put it this way. An undergraduate degree in biophysics in 1968 does not qualify one to do this sort of research, and, as I discussed in her foray into autism and vaccine epidemiology, it really does show. Badly. The paper was so embarrassingly incompetent that I’m surprised any journal was willing to publish it.

The first link is an article from 2013!!!

Lots has happened since then, they've written more Papers. The newest one on bile acids, which will be of interest to those folks who have lost their gall bladders is coming out this year.

Also, I've posted Seneff's credentials many times. She is a genius. She has always been interested in biology.

You need to consider the sources and who is funding them. Seneff's work is funded by a computer company. You can search back in the other thread and find the video where she explains her funding source, her interests, her transition BACK to biology and WHY she made that transition.

Samsel is retired, self funds his own research and takes donations from the PUBLIC.

Pustai: If you go back and look at Pustai's story, you'll see who funded his study and what happened to him when he tried to publish the results of his gmo research that the company that hired him didn't like. They destroyed his career. He was, like Seralini, exhonerated and was finally able to get his Paper published. (The same thing happened to Tyrone Hayes, look under "Frogs.")

Do you notice Seralini's 2017 study that showed that the "other" ingredients in glyphosate is 1,000 times more toxic than glyphosate. Did you take the time to read and watch any of the information I posted?

I could spend all night listing the scientists for you but I've already done that in the other thread and I'm not redoing the work for someone who will never believe it anyways. The second article you listed is so unprofessional and just nasty. Nasty and mean, that's all they have. They can't show us any independent, non industry funded science proving their food is safe.

Folks figure it out when they or their kids become ill. As I did, they research, change their family's diet and see what happens for themselves. This is how Moms Across America got started, by mothers whose children had severe reactions to food and they wanted to know why. This is why there is such a huge movement in the world to stop gmo seed, food, and all poisons sprayed on our food. Us Mothers did the research, made the changes and we healed ourselves and our children. This is why you see all sorts of products in stores now with the Non-Gmo Verified Butterfly logo. This is why you see the organic sections growing at grocery stores. Even Wal-Mart couldn't ignore the movement and they wanted in on the big money too, so Wal-Mart has their own organic line. Aldis is carry new organics all the time: milk, cereal, eggs, bread, pizza. Duh, you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that consumers drive what grocers carry in their stores.

Believe me, this is NOT something I enjoy doing. It is complicated, time consuming and when you finally get the big picture, it affects your outlook on life.

You have a right to believe what you want. If you want to eat gmo food and inject toxic vaccines into your body, go for it and good luck. But if you start to sneeze a lot, get an allergy, a rash on your skin, pain in your stomach, heart burn, prediabetic systems, chrones, IBS, to list just a few, you might want to read a little more than the garbage you listed above.

Dr. John Robb - Protect the Pets

Puppy and kitten vaccine protocol.

There is no one size fits all protocol. It takes a morally sound educated Veterinarian and an informed pet owner to look at each pets circumstances and risk factors to determine the best vaccination protocol.

Single antigen injections is key. For puppies for instance, they should only get a single antigen Parvovirus injection and a single antigen distemper vaccine, just like rabies is single antigen.

Just as with human infants, puppies and kittens should be home bodies for the early part of their life. Their immune system must develop and mature before being put in situations that could expose them to infections disease or be given vaccinations.

The worst places to take a puppy or kitten would be places that large numbers of cats and dogs congregate, including dog parks and veterinary hospitals. Obviously if there is a medical need, this changes the risk factors, and common sense always enters into the equation.

I know this post will cause confusion and questions but a paradigm shift is needed here. We have all been indoctrinated and the truth must now prevail. Protect the pets! Doc

Just ignore the trolls, their goal is to keep you from reading my posts, because if you read my posts and learn how you and your pets are being poisoned, you won't buy their poisons.

It's all about the money. We the people have the power and that power is OUR money and how we spend it.

This is how we get them to make the changes. Speak out with your money.



-------------



Dr. John Robb - Protect the Pets

Puppy and kitten vaccine protocol.

There is no one size fits all protocol. It takes a morally sound educated Veterinarian and an informed pet owner to look at each pets circumstances and risk factors to determine the best vaccination protocol.

Single antigen injections is key. For puppies for instance, they should only get a single antigen Parvovirus injection and a single antigen distemper vaccine, just like rabies is single antigen.

Just as with human infants, puppies and kittens should be home bodies for the early part of their life. Their immune system must develop and mature before being put in situations that could expose them to infections disease or be given vaccinations.

The worst places to take a puppy or kitten would be places that large numbers of cats and dogs congregate, including dog parks and veterinary hospitals. Obviously if there is a medical need, this changes the risk factors, and common sense always enters into the equation.

I know this post will cause confusion and questions but a paradigm shift is needed here. We have all been indoctrinated and the truth must now prevail. Protect the pets! Doc

You're confusing trolling with vetting standards of the scientific process and full disclosure of those who are skirting their medical, scientific and legal obligations. Practitioners of such pseudoscience should be exposed for what they are, and those who skirt the laws of their respective communities, clearly fit that definition.

Example:
• Dr. John Robb was arrested then sued by the owners of the franchise he operates for trespassing and providing doses of rabies vaccines at a low level that was in clear violation of policies established by the franchise. Dr. Robb, who after a 4 year battle with regulators, was given veterinary license probation. He is not allowed to vaccinate any animal for rabies for 25 years. In addition, for the following 18 months, he was required to practice under the supervision of a colleague approved by the state board regulatory agency.

The reason for his censure revolves around the question of dose size of rabies vaccine in respect to the size of the animal. For example, should a Chihuahua get the same size rabies vaccine as a Great Dane? The common sense answer would seem to be “no”. However most immunologists and veterinarians who understand immunology would disagree. Why? Dr. Ronald Shultz, longtime researcher of vaccines at Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine, discussed this topic in the Journal of Small Animal Practice. “Unlike pharmaceuticals that are dose-dependent, vaccines are not based on volume per body mass (size), but rather on the minimum immunizing dose. “ Dozens of years of research has determined pets need a certain minimum amount of rabies vaccine to stimulate the immune system to protect against disease. The immune system of a small dog and a large dog need the same size dose in order to tell the immune system “Hey! There is a virus here! Let’s protect against this.” In fact, if the Chihuahua has a poor immune system he may need a larger amount of vaccine to obtain the same level of protection as the Great Dane. If one were to give a lesser amount of rabies vaccine there is a valid concern the immune system may not be stimulated enough to protect against future exposure to the virus.

Think about that….Think about that very seriously….Imagine your child or grandchild is bitten by a dog that has been vaccinated against rabies inappropriately and has not developed a good immune response to prevent rabies. Now, imagine that dog bit your child/grandchild after getting in a fight with a skunk, raccoon, or other rabies reservoir species, such as a bat or coyote, which no one knew about. You take your child/grandchild to the doctor. He asks if the dog was vaccinated. The answer is “yes”. Your doctor is now no longer worried about the risk of rabies because the vaccine is so effective when given in accordance with regulatory guidelines. He does not recommend treatment against possible rabies exposure. Your child/grandchild contracts rabies from the bite. Rabies is almost 100% fatal once clinical signs develop. Many people fail to understand, while rabies vaccine protects animals, the reasons the UDSA rules and the state laws are there are to ensure rabies vaccine given to pets protect the people around those pets.

https://www.swartzcreekvet.com/2017/02/28/rabies-vaccine-controversy-what-you-need-to-know/

Anti-vaxxers new target – pets:
A growing movement of animal anti-vaccine advocates claim that immunizing cats and dogs can cause a range of diseases and disorders – including autism
https://skepticalkitten.com/anti-vaxxers/the-anti-vaxxers-have-a-new-target-in-their-sights-pets

Bottom line... there are NO reputble randomized clinical trial DATA supporting such practice. In fact, all credible testing indicates the precise opposite. There is a mountain of peer-reviewed research the supports full-dose vaccines across breeds in order to provide proper efficacy. The reverse argument categorically can NOT be made truthfully.

So spare us your use of such words as "Troll" when faced with those who would insist upon all the facts being made available. I understand that your heart is in the right place. But, that doesn't mean that your 'feelings' take precedent over long-established scientific FACTS. What you are disseminating, is reckless, scientifically innaccurate and extremely detrimental to the health of those who would take such advice (however well-intended it may be).

Scientific fact is just as often as not, highly counter-intuitive yet no less correct. And the vast majority of anti-vaccination 'reporting' tries desperately to make leaps of intuition in order to shoehorn conclusions into incomplete or lazy DATA sets. And every single "example" that you've posted (based on each one I've taken the time to properly examine) is simply replete with blatant incongruities, as even a cursory review of my posted links will confirm

I have no agenda, bar that of scientific veracity. I'll be the first one to acknowledge "good" science, should you some day provide actual examples.

Unfortunately today, given that most of the products we buy for our pets and family have dangerous ingredients, we consumers need to do our own at home science experiments.

Many pet parents today are having multiple problems with their pet's health. A simple at home experiment can tell you what is harming your pet.

I did this experiment at home. I used to buy my pet's food at Wal-Mart. I've purchased the Wal-Mart brand and even the supposed better brands and still my cats would puke up their food.

I started purchasing my pet's food at Trader Joe's. TJ's sells non-gmo products. What was the result of my at home experiment?

My pets stopped puking up their food.



Glyphosate: The Hidden Dog Food Ingredient That Can Harm Your Dog

What all of this means for you and your animals is this: any wheat, genetically modified crop, cotton or animal product (meat, bones, milk, cheese) will have glyphosate contamination. Ugh!




Another addition to the Roundup formula is a surfactant agent, which increases its adhesion to the plant and meaning it can’t be washed off.

… and just about all of these foods are ingredients in commercial kibbles.

Unless you use side-by-side blind tested control-groups with consistently producible results, accounting for all possible variables, what you did, is in no way, shape, or form "scientific". And it's a gross disservice to those you claim to be protecting by stating otherwise.

And just to illustrate the point, EVERYTHING in large enough doses is "toxic", but just because something contains poisonous or toxic ingredients, doesn't mean that it's harmful. Some poisons are chemically reactive, some are thermally reactive, others require other catalysts not present by way of normal digestive processes (e.g. - fruit seeds contain FAR more poison than you are likely to find in virtually any other processed food). Dangers from toxic or poisonous foods depend entirely upon medium delivery and quantity to be dangerous to humans and animals.

Toxic: acting as or having the effect of a poison; poisonous.


Poison: a substance with an inherent property that tends to destroy life or impair health.

Interesting that you should bring that up, since anything in large enough quantities is harmful. Conversely, anything in small enough quantity is NOT.

The reason that that's important in regards to your related posts, is that not only do you all too often ignore this fact, but you also have a tendency to mistake one for the other. And then there are the regularly conflated inaccuracies rampant within the most common anti-vax arguments. I refer you back to your apparent confusion on the subject by reminding you of my above 'fruit seed' example.

In this example, you mistakenly interpret disparity where none exist. Allow me to clarify for you...

YOU, the consumer, need to know how you and your pet's food was changed and, YOU, the consumer, should be the one to decide whether you want to consume it or not and where to spend your shopping dollar.


Protect Your Pets from GMOs and Pesticides in Food

Our companion animals bring such joy and comfort to our lives. They are always there to greet us with a happy welcome home. Pets – like people – are suffering from unprecedented increased health risks including cancer and other debilitating diseases and disorders. Animal studies on animals fed genetically modified food have shown organ damage, potential pre-cancerous cell growth, damaged immune systems, allergies and more due to GM food. Switching to non-GMO and/or organic diets can help reduce the risk of health problems, assist our pets in recovery and support them to enjoy a longer life span . This website is a resource for pet owners to learn more about the health risks of GMOs and pesticides in pet food, and to provide information on healthier alternatives.

http://www.petsandgmos.com/




To learn how gmo food got approved as "substantially equivalent" to real food, watch this documentary. Your pets are eating this food too.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sUNxX0OxP8




Vaccines destroy pets too.

Over-vaccinating and the overdosing of pet vaccines has become a global issue. 5 lbs dogs are receiving the same dose of the rabies vaccine as 150 lbs Great Danes, and vets are now witnessing terrible side effects.

https://www.facebook.com/PlanetPaws.ca/videos/1404799696261575/




Dr. John Robb - Protect the Pets

“Say it like it is- It’s malpractice to inject a pet with a vaccine when it already has immunity!

It’s all about the money!

Pet owners must unite and make their voices heard to amend the rabies law to line up with the science! Measuring circulating antibodies, a blood titer, equals immunity! Demand accountability and contact your elected officials! Protect the pets! Doc”

How Much Money are You Wasting on Pet Vaccines?

"We are not anti-vaccination. What we are saying is that currently our pets are receiving far too many. The latest scientific research shows that after the first course of injections as a puppy most dogs are immune against these diseases for at least seven years, if not for life."

Every time that you post nonsense from discredited conspiracy quacks, I'll be here to take out the trash spewed by the likes of con-men such as...

GMO foods - What about our pets?

If these foods can make a bug's stomach explode, can open the tight junctions in a human's gut,

what are these foods doing to our pet's?

These are reasonable questions that Timbo doesn't want you to know the answer too.

Notice the only thing he has to post is people bashing. This is the way they try to get you to STOP reading.

Whether you are a mom (dad) to a human or a pet, you have a right

to know if your family, pets included, are being poisoned.



Your child, your family, your pet, your decision.

You have a right to know.

Again, you're simply wrong. I want EVERYONE armed with ALL the facts.

And the facts are, that there isn't a single shred of credible scientific evidence connecting GMOs with health concerns any different than any other genetic process, naturally occurring OR otherwise.

Feel free to espouse all the disinformative pseudoscience that you wish, and I'll be right here to set the record straight with cited, peer-reviewed scientific FACTS. An entirely different matter than "people bashing", as you so erroneously refer to it.

I've posted the facts. The scientists.

Where are your independent non-industry connected scientists?

You can fool some of the people some of the time and you've got away with it for over thirty years.

Fortunately, there are some of us left that can still think, can still remember when we didn't have all these illnesses.

Common sense, parental intuition, at home science, seeing our children's and pet's health improve by taking them off gmo food products.

New job? Trolling for Monsanto?

Vaccine Adverse Reactions - Pets

This is extremely problematic because, as the vets themselves have revealed, they’re not prepared to make a decision on how often they should vaccinate and what vaccines they should give. In the end, the vets are over-vaccinating either out of ignorance or greed, and the governing bodies only seem interest in protecting the financial interests of their veterinary members.

Speaking of that, it’s noteworthy that the major sponsors of the AAHA guidelines are the major pharmaceutical companies that manufacture these vaccines.



How many pet owners are given full disclosure when their animals are vaccinated? How many vets warn them that the vaccine may cause injection site sarcomas, other forms of cancer, severe allergic reactions or even anaphylactic shock and death?

Here’s the list of adverse events known to be induced via vaccine administration (Schultz, 2007):

Fatty Tumors In Dogs



What Causes Fatty Tumors In Dogs?

Toxic Overload

Allopathic medicine is baffled by the cause of fatty tumors in dogs, usually attributing them to random chance, age and genetics. While age and genetics can contribute to the formation of lipomas, there’s something else that needs attention …

Toxins.

The build-up of toxins is often overlooked by mainstream veterinary medicine. From a holistic perspective, when lipomas form it’s a sign that the body is congested and energy isn’t flowing like it should. Toxins and fat get trapped and walled off by the body’s immune system as it pushes contaminants to the outside in an effort to protect and sustain internal organ function.

The Truth About PET Cancer

World renowned veterinary oncologists… holistic veterinarians… and animal health specialists reveal the natural treatments and therapies that are saving animals from cancer.

https://thetruthaboutpetcancer.com/?a_aid=57a9056859c9a&a_bid=752e0fd9




Mars Petcare Dog Food linked to deadly illness in Australia

http://truthaboutpetfood.com/mars-petcare-dog-food-linked-to-deadly-illness-in-australia/




Dr. Robb: “YOU ARE ENTITLED TO INFORMED CONSENT

The pet owner has the right to be given informed consent and the veterinarian has the legal obligation to provide it. Informed consent means the medical profession must disclose the benefits and risks of all recommended treatments to the owner before treatment is initiated.

Every Day in veterinary hospitals across the world pet owners are not being informed of the dangers of vaccinations, medications used for parasite control, and medications in general.

Pet owners are not being informed about measuring circulating antibodies, blood titers, to assess the immune status of that pet. But rather pressure is brought on the pet owner to do repeated vaccinations, putting the pets at risk for no medical benefit. Rather then do the right thing and check a titer, pet owners are pressured into administering unnecessary vaccines, and not even warned about potential side effects - even death!

The link here is how pet owners fought back in Minnesota proving violation of the Consumer Protection Act as vets were administering the rabies shot every two years, even though the label clearly stated it was good for three years. The pet owners won, and the vets were forced to change the certificates.

Of course even this is not enough as no pet should be given a rabies booster if it already has immunity easily proven with a blood titer!

It’s time for pet owners to band together and demand that the veterinary establishment be held accountable to inform consumers of the truth in all areas - medications and vaccinations.

While I was writing this post some pet died in agony from a rabies shot it did not need, but the owner was not informed.

Another pet is struggling for life after the owner administered a flea and tick product, never having been informed that it could make their pet sick.

A small pet is suffering right now, having been given 3 vaccines, because the owner was not informed that vaccine reactions go up when more then one vaccine is given at a time .

Have we the people had enough? Have we the pet owners been through enough grief watching our pets suffer and die never being informed that this could happen so we could say no, I am not willing to put my pet at risk?

Let’s do what these pet owners did in Minnesota. Let’s stand up together for our rights as consumers to be informed by the veterinarians.

Together and United, we will protect the pets! Doc””

Robb: “This must stop! Continue to educate fellow pet owners whenever and wherever you cross paths! So many lives are being saved when pet owners are alerted to the propaganda used to lure pet owners into the vaccine money trap!

This was sent to a pet owner by a Veterinarian. What it should have said - vaccinate to produce immunity, easily measured by checking circulating antibodies, a blood titer. If a pet has any measurable titer to rabies, it is immune, further vaccination has no medical benefit but can and will sicken many pets or worse!

Educate, encourage and stand! Drive the change to protect the pets! Doc”
