A nosode could be described as an "oral vaccine" in the sense that its purpose is to "immunize" the body against a specific disease. The major difference between a nosode and an "orthodox" vaccine is of course the extremely small (if any) quantity of physical substance in a nosode. Remember, it is the "energy" pattern not the "substance" that does the job in a homeopathic remedy. Tautodes are used by pet owners who have an animal who they feel must be re-vaccinated, for whatever reason. To help mitigate the vaccinosis effects.
Tautodes begin as drugs or vaccines that are made into remedies by dilution according to homeopathic principles. Tautodes can be used therapeutically or preventively. Because of ultra-dilution, they are free of infectious potential.
The alarming increase in autoimmune conditions, allergies, cancer and other canine health issues due to vaccine reactions is a known fact. Pet owners are now seeking alternatives to keep their dogs healthy while preventing disease and illness. The growing interest in nosodes comes at a time when the safety and efficacy of vaccines are being questioned.
Nosodes are completely safe, easy to administer, and can be given to puppies much earlier than vaccines. Pregnant females can be treated with nosodes prior to giving birth, providing immunity to their litters before they are born.
The difference between a nosode and a conventional vaccine is that there are no dangerous chemicals and additives in the homeopathic remedy. Nosodes are also given orally whereas core vaccines are injected. Nosodes can be used in two ways: to protect against disease (called homeoprophylaxis), or as a remedy should the animal become ill. Nosodes restore health through vibrational energy. They interact with the body’s energy reserves, recalibrating positive and negative forces within the energy field and stimulating the body to heal and protect itself.
When a nosode is given, the body recognizes the cellular structure and disease imprint, producing an immune response is similar to actual exposure to the disease itself. Although this is difficult to prove scientifically, there are numerous examples of how nosodes have been used in homeoprophylaxis and to treat the onset of disease.
A nosode is just a homeopathic remedy that is made from the actual disease and then very, very, diluted. Nosodes are not in any way infectious and can be used to prevent viral infection. Under most circumstances, there is no need for nosodes in adult dogs and cats, so their use is generally limited to puppies and kittens. There is, however, a nosode for heartworms, which could be used in adult dogs on an ongoing basis.
Although we offer suggested dosage information homeopathic remedies are NOT dose specific. A few drops or a dropperful is going to do the same thing. So dosages are some basic guidelines.
Dosage is entirely dependent upon individual needs and circumstances. Give more often in a situation where there is a kennel cough, parvo or distemper threat. GIve before trips to the dog park or other exposure
Parvo and Distemper Nosodes:
Give your young companion a dose of a 30c Parvo or Distemper nosode once a week (give each different nosode) a few days apart until they are 7 months old. Thereafter repeat every 2-4 weeks until a year or so.
3-4 drops or sprays in mouth or drops per 20 lbs. of body weight, once a week from 3-4 weeks old- or when you first acquire a puppy until about 7 months old.
Are used to help mitigate the ill effects of the rabies vaccine if it has to be given. Give a few doses ( a dose is a dropperful) of the Tautode 30c 2-3 days before the vaccine happens, giving a few doses in a row at 12 hour intervals. Then again after the vaccine as soon as possible after the vaccine is given.
Dog Combo Nosode:
regimen: Give once daily for 3 days, then once per week for 4 weeks, then once per month thereafter. 5−10 drops on gums, once per month til about 1 year, after the initial dosing protocol.
This nosode can be included in your pet’s holistic health program and heartworm concerns.
Recommended Dose-2-5 drops depending on dog’s size.
AT RISK FOR DISEASE/ long-term maintenance:
Give once weekly as a protection dose.
EXPOSURE DOSE: One dose daily.
SYMPTOM DOSE: Suggested dose for dogs with symptoms: One dose 2-4 times daily.
Kennel Cough Nosode:
Typically, the kennel cough nosode is given before potential exposure, such as before a boarding stay. Unlike a vaccine, it does not offer long-term protection. The kennel cough nosode has been researched by Dr. Christopher Day in England. The study indicated that the dogs that received the nosode had little or no symptoms
Suggested Dose: One dropperful twice a day for 3 days before exposure or preventatively, one weekly for 6 weeks, one monthly for 6 months or when in contact with the disease give 1-2 x daily if they have kennel cough.
