There is a great deal of evidence implicating vaccination as the cause of many serious chronic health problems. For this reason, I do not recommend vaccination for dogs or cats.
As an alternative to vaccination, I do recommend the use of homeopathic nosodes and/or homeopathic vaccines tautodes.
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.
Tautodes are used by pet owners who have an animal who they feel must be re-vaccinated, for what ever 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.
Our usage here is for prevention of vaccination illness, i.e. vaccinosis. The tautode are made from the actual vaccine.
Vaccine Tautode 30C: 2-3 days prior to vaccination with rabies. Shake before using. you'll give a dropperful orally (or 3 ml in syringe) night-morning-night, for a total of three diluted doses, all in 24 hours. That’s about 12 hours apart.
Final dose: Rabies Vaccine Tautode 30C: ASAP after vaccination. give a single dose of the above dilution. This should stem the ill effects of the vaccination without interfering with its ability to confer immunity. Please do not view vaccination as benign, even with this protocol. It is not. Once you have a vaccinated animal, I do not recommend repeating vaccinations throughout life. To do so puts your animal at risk for developing or worsening chronic disease. While nosodes are very safe (unlike vaccines), they should only cautiously be given to unhealthy animals or animals on constitutional homeopathic treatment. Check with your veterinary homeopath before using them.
These are each a 2 oz bottles of liquid Homeopathic Nosodes for dogs (some for cats available as well) for $15.99. One bottle would last the entire puppyhood most likely. The Parvo and Distemper Nosodes have been found to be the most effective. Especially when started very young.
may find marking the calendar helpful in planning your administration.
Homeopathic remedies are NOT dose specific. A few drops or a dropperful is going to do the same thing.
Below are some basic guidelines for dosing:
Dosage is entirely dependent upon individual needs and circumstances. Give more often in a situation where there is a parvo or distemper threat. Give before trips to the dog park or other exposure
Give your young companion a dose of a 30c nosode once a week (give each different nosode) a few days apart until they are 7-8 months old.
For instance give the parvo nosode every Monday - give the distemper nosode every Thursday.
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
What are Nosodes?
Nosodes are homeopathic medicines, They are used like any other homeopathic remedy, however, no provings exist for veterinary nosodes. (Provings are also known as homeopathic pathogenic trials.)
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 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 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.
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.
As an integral part of the homeopathic family, nosodes are dog friendly for several reasons. Because their action works across the mucous membranes of the mouth, it is not necessary to swallow the medicine. Dosing is easy since the mouth doesn’t have to be opened and the remedy can be placed on the gum or inside the lip. The single dose powder is sweet tasting.
The immune response to nosodes offers a more natural response to disease without the introduction of killed or modified viruses and harmful preservatives that can weaken the immune system. Unlike vaccines, nosodes are both safe and effective.
Building Natural Immunity
. After the age of 12 weeks or starting right at 12 weeks, pups are brought to a populated animal park. They are set down for 3-4 minutes in that park with freedom to roam around on the ground.
The puppy is brought home. The following week ( or even after a day or two) the same thing happens, same busy park, five minutes on the ground, sniffing around, etc. picked up and brought home. ( I do this increasing the time by a few minutes each time)
Typically a few exposures are enough to get life-long immunity. You can continue this for a third week, or the fourth. Then if you want to know for sure have your puppy titer tested. ( Check out Dr. John Robb's website, http://www.protectthepets.com/
Basically, titers are measuring antibodies for distemper and parvo. This exposure is done along with using Nosodes to immunize against, parvo and distemper, is this natural exposure along with two helpers to make it extra safe, nosodes for parvo and distemper once per week and colloidal silver in their water daily so that the immune system is really on high alert., so no chance of disease.
We recommend to raise the animal in such a way as to promote good health. This means a natural, raw species appropriate diet, adequate exercise and fresh air, no vaccinations and judicious use colloidal silver and other immune boosters, raising the vibration to a frequency where disease ( and parasites) is not a problem. However, using a natural dewormer for about 3-4 weeks can eliminate any type of parasite load the puppy might have come with to you.
