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.

Collagen is loaded with glycine, and Anthony Samsel and I have shown strong evidence that glyphosate can substitute for glycine by mistake during protein synthesis.

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.”

CT Lawmakers Hail Veterinarian John Robb as "Visionary" and "Victim of Broken Law"

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.”

http://www.healthnutnews.com/veterinaria...s-met-laughter/



This is the 14 page document to educate your veterinarian that vaccines are dose dependent by weight and a rabies titer indicates immunity!

http://protectthepets.com/Information.pdf
http://protectthepets.com/



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.

Doctor Robb's Dosage Chart For Vaccinating Dogs For Rabies

“Remember, the statement repeated over and over to continue the overdosing agenda of small dogs is "You are vaccinating an immune system so all animals get the same dose?!"

This is at best a false assumption never proved by science and at worst a lie perpetuated that has cost the lives of millions of small pets! It stops here and it stops now!”
