Are There Poisons in Your Dog’s Vaccines?
We all know it’s important to give our dog’s some vaccinations, but what’s really in your dog’s vaccines? Veterinarians have been doing lots of research in the past couple of decades and we now know that giving your dog limited vaccinations is healthier for your dog. Veterinary researchers have found that the core vaccines (parvo, distemper and leptospirosis) can provide immunity for your dog for 7 years or more and may even last a for your dog’s lifetime.
Rabies vaccines may also provide extended immunity, but most states have laws requiring a rabies shot every 3 years. And sometimes your dog training class, boarding or day care facility may require your dog to have certain vaccinations. So you will have to give your dog a certain number of vaccines over his or her lifetime and these vaccines can contain some things that could make your dog sick. So what nasty things are in your dog’s vaccines? Per the website www.truthaboutpetfood.com rabies vaccines may contain aluminum hydroxide, Gentaminicin, Mertholate (as mercury), Thimerosal and aluminum phosphate.
Most of the rabies vaccines available today contain mercury. Merthiolate and Thimerosal both contain mercury. And we all know that mercury is very dangerous and is a known poison. Aluminum in several forms is also added to your dog’s vaccines. Aluminum can also be very toxic to your pet and can cause brain and hormone issues.
So what should you do? You know your dog needs certain vaccines, but you did you also know they contain ingredients that may be harmful to your dog. What if there were a way to help minimize the bad side effects that can be caused by the necessary vaccines your dog needs? There are several natural supplements that you should give your dog every time they are vaccinated.
One of the biggest benefits of feeding your dog Omega 3 fatty acids is the ability to control the inflammation that is cause by the vaccines. One of the fatty acids in Omega 3 is EPA. This is a potent anti-inflammatory. EPA helps control inflammation of the skin, heart, kidneys and joints. An added benefit of Omega 3 is that it will give your dog a luxurious, glossy coat.
The homeopathic remedy called Thuja can be very helpful after your dog is vaccinated. It can help many symptoms your dog may have after vaccination such as; anxiety, nausea, diarrhea and coughing. Silica may also help many of these same symptoms.
Probiotics, Kefir and Yogurt
Your dog’s digestive tract has a delicate balance and vaccines may disrupt this. Probiotics will help to reestablish the flora in your dog’s gut. Adding a probiotic supplement to your dog’s food is a great idea following any vaccination. A probiotic supplement should have at least 10 billion CFU and should be given to your dog twice a day for at least 2 weeks. You can also add kefir or yogurt to your dog’s food. Just make sure the yogurt or kefir contains live active cultures.
Dark Leafy Greens
Parsley, Kale, cilantro and kale are all great for helping to reduce levels of mercury in your dogs body. Try adding chopped greens to your dog’s food. If they won’t eat them, put them through the food processor till they’re the consistency of baby food and then mix a small amount with water into your dog’s food.
All the above items will help to strengthen your dog’s immune system and eliminate toxins they are exposed to from vaccines. Start slowly and add these items one at a time and see how your dog responds to them. Find and work with a holistic veterinarian and only vaccinate your dog as necessary.
