New Book Regarding Vaccinations

Postby Bari » Wed Dec 20, 2006 8:35 am

New Book from Amazon.com

Stop the Shots!: Are Vaccinations Killing Our Pets?
John Clifton - $8.95

Book Description
Most pet owners aren't aware of the dangers in animal vaccinations that have been discovered in recent years. In this compact, easy-to-understand volume, John Clifton explains the very real risks involved every time a dog or cat gets a shot. The major veterinary associations now agree that vaccinations can trigger all sorts of maladies, from allergies to cancer - but most pet caretakers (and many veterinarians, it seems) haven't gotten the word. This is an important book for every pet owner to read. In a conversational, direct, non-technical voice it guides the reader in formulating an intelligent approach to animal vaccinations. Clifton lays out all the major issues: whether to vaccinate or not, which shots to give and which to avoid.

I'm afraid that if I read it, I'd be even angrier at our county - they still insist dogs must have a rabies shot EVERY year.

I take Tasha to a holistic vet who weighs Tasha's lifestyle, healthy, and age against which injections to give her that year (other than the required rabies).

I've thought about not vaccinating, but two years ago, a friend's cat who she never took for vaccinations, bit a tech at the vet clinic. The cat was already ill with failing kidneys, but because kitty didn't have a rabies shot, he was quarantined and wasn't allowed the fluids needed to keep him going. The cat died while under quarantine.

Either way, it is a no-win situation.

I'm glad for books like this that make everyone aware. Maybe it's the first step in changing some rules.

Whaaaaa...??? How does quarantine mean "no necessary veterinary care"?! This is effed up, IMO! (I'm not sputtering at you, but at the clinic.)

I'm going to read this but I am sure I'll end up feeling even more guilty about the vaccinations Suki has had.

I feel like I will never learn enough to keep my dogs healthy. Argh!
