PROTOCOL ACCEPTED BY ALL 27 VET. SCHOOLS
NEW!!!! VACCINATION PROTOCOL by DR. JEAN DODDS
All of the 27 Vet Universities in the U.S. have followed the
immunization protocol as suggested by Dr. Dodds for years. All of
these hospitals apparently will be changing their vaccination programs.
This is welcome news and you should print this out and take
it with you to your Vet should you need reinforcement against over
VACCINATION NEWSFLASH (CIMDA support) RE; J. DODDS VACCINE
I would like to make you aware that all 27 veterinary schools
in North America are in the process of changing their protocols
for vaccinating cats and dogs. Some of this information will present
an ethical and economic challenge to Vets, and there will be skeptics.
Some organizations have come up with a political compromise by suggesting
vaccinations every 3 years to appease those who fear loss of income
vs. those concerned about potential side effects. Politics, traditions,
or the Drs. economic well being should not be a factor in a medical
NEW PRINCIPLES OF IMMUNOLOGY
Dogs and cats immune systems mature fully at 6 mos. of age.
If a modified live virus vaccine is given after 6 mos. of age it
produces lifetime immunity for the pet. (i.e. canine distemper,
parvo, feline distemper). If another MLV vaccine is given one year
later the antibodies from the first vaccine neutralize the antigens
of the second vaccine and there is little or no effect. The titer
is not boosted nor are more memory cells induced. Not
only are annual boosters for parvo and distemper unnecessary, it
subjects the pet to potential risks of allergic reactions and immune-mediated
haemolytic anemia. There is no scientific documentation to back
up label claims for annual administration of MLV vaccines
Puppies receive antibodies through their mothers milk that last
for 8-14 weeks.
Puppies and kittens should NOT be vaccinated at LESS than 8
weeks. Maternal immunity will neutralize the vaccine and little
protection (0-38%) will be produced.
Vaccination at 6 weeks will, however, DELAY the timing of the
first highly effective vaccine.
Vaccinations given 2 weeks apart SUPPRESS rather than stimulate
the immune system. A series of vaccinations is given starting at
8 weeks and given 3-4 weeks apart up to 16 weeks of age. Another
vaccination given sometime after 6 mos. of age will (usually at
1 yr. 4 mos.) provide LIFETIME IMMUNITY.
