Pro Vaccines vs wise vaccinating
When an animal is successfully vaccinated against certain diseases (e.g., distemper, parvo, and adenovirus in dogs) and becomes immunized, she receives what we call sterile immunity. Sterile immunity lasts a minimum of 7 to 9 years, up to a maximum of lifetime immunity as measured by titer tests.
This means the dog cannot become infected, nor will she shed the virus should she be exposed (because that is how vaccines are supposed to work). Since the diseases of distemper, parvo and hepatitis (adenovirus) are everywhere, the risk of exposure is constant.
Animals must be healthy to receive any vaccine, so if your pet has allergies, endocrine issues, organ dysfunction, cancer (or is a cancer survivor), or another medical issue he or she is NOT a candidate to receive vaccines.

Many holistic veterinarians believe vaccinations create a large percentage of the chronic disease we see in domestic animals, if not most. It is also one of the few things we can really control; whether and how much to vaccinate.
when you do vaccinate your pet use spirulina to enhance your animal’s immune response to the vaccine and detox strategies, especially if the adjuvant is a metal (usually mercury or aluminium).
Spirulina refers to two species of blue green algae (Arthrospira platensis, and A. maxima) consumed by humans as food for centuries. While, Spirulina has been shown to have immune enhancing properties in several animal and human studies, there are no systematic studies in dogs. The aim of this study was to evaluate the immunomodulatory effect of dietary supplementation with Spirulina in dogs. The study was conducted in two phases: Pre-test (8 wks.) and Test (42 wks.). Thirty adult dogs (mean 2.9 yrs.) were randomized into two groups and fed a nutritionally complete diet in the "Pre-test" phase. At the end of "Pre-test" phase all dogs received a rabies vaccine, and dogs in "test group" were switched to diet supplemented with dried Arthrospira platensis (Spirulina). Response to rabies vaccine was evaluated by Rapid Fluorescent Focus Inhibition Test (RFFIT). Gut immune response was assessed by measuring fecal IgA. Gut microbiota was evaluated by Temporal Temperature Gel Electrophoresis (TTGE) methodology. Repeated measures ANOVA was used to test for differences between groups and statistical significance considered to be p < 0.05. Dogs fed diets supplemented with Spirulina demonstrated enhanced immune status by showing significantly higher vaccine response and higher levels of fecal IgA as compared to the control group. Supplementing diets with Spirulina also resulted in significantly increased gut microbiota stability in the test group. In conclusion, diets supplemented with Spirulina significantly enhanced immune response and gut health in dogs. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/34124121/

Agcore farms nutrient dense, protein rich superfood, Spirulina (blue-green algae) an excellent antioxidant with anti-inflammatory benefits. Our Farm Blend relies on the Spirulina for reduced inflammation. Pumpkin Topper has Spirulina and the added benefit of patented ValAsta Astaxanthin, which is considered one of the most powerful free radical fighters known. Similar to humans, inflammation is the root to many health issues
8 Weeks old- leaving with family
pups are receiving momma's antibodies. These antibodies remain in pups system (lessen with time) until 16 weeks
Pups going to their new family receive their first dose of 5-way.
I STRONGLY recommend they are cared for like a human infant, where as they are not taken in public unitl titer tested at 16 weeks to establish immunity base. I also highlight bring a towel or small blanket with to the vet- as they should not be allowed to touch any surface in the clinic.
9 mo old + (and not before)
RABIES vaccination-*give the non-adjuvanted one-year vaccine created no inflammatory response at the injection site (a marker for tumor development)
The law is not interested in when an animal actually needs another rabies vaccine to be protected – the law simply demands every vaccinations with no consideration for whether the animal's body is already immune to the rabies virus thanks to a prior vaccine.
If you choose not to re-vaccinate your pet for rabies, it is your choice, but you should be aware it is also against the law.
*worth a try: in lieu of vaccinating every 1-3 years in order to comply with city ordinance -titers for rabies and report test results
9 mo old + (and not before)
....you are going out of town and the kennel your pup is staying with requires the bordetella vaccine.
always have your vet give the *intranasal vaccine, as it is significantly less toxic than the adjuvanted injectable vaccines, which should never be used. the intranasal vaccine may not be in your vets clinic- make your request so they have time to order it for you.
* 1x after titer
