VACCINATING BIRDS AND OTHER ANIMALS:
Homeopathic vaccine alternatives http://www.doglogic.com/vaccineinfo.htm#news
Mitchell Fleisher, MD, in a recent letter to Yoga Journal, would seem to support the same perspective:
"The vast majority of the professional classical homeopathic community does not advise the use of homeopathic or
allopathic vaccines in the long-term prevention of communicable diseases. Rather professional homeopaths would
prescribe a single remedy, based upon the totality of the individual's symptoms... that is intended to strengthen the immune system
and assist the defense mechanism in overcoming disease."
The letter goes on to point out that there is a great deal of evidence for homeopathy's ability to handle viral epidemics.
During the 19th century, homeopathy enjoyed a surge of popularity when it was found to be extremely effective in dealing
with the epidemic diseases that spread throuout the country. In fact, during a cholera epidemic in Cincinnati in 1849,
only 3 percent of homeopathic patients died, compared to 48-60% of the conventionally treated patients.

Cancers - Tumors - Fibrosarcomas
affect both cats and dogs.
I'd like to address the inaccuracy under the "Cancer" section -- "Tumors have been found at the site of vaccine injections in cats,
though not dogs, according to an article published in the March/April issue of The Journal of the American Animal
Hospital Association." Below is an abstract published in the August 2003 Journal of Veterinary Medicine on the
Vascellari study (full text attached) which documented fibrosarcomas at presumed vaccine injection sites (rabies)
in dogs. My own Labrador Retriever, Meadow (click on this link for his story and photo
developed a malignant mast cell tumor directly on the site of his fall 2003 rabies vaccination --
he was 6 at the time. He is now one of the "poster" dogs for The Rabies Challenge Fund,
which was founded by Dr. W. Jeans and me to raise funds to sponsor concurrent 5 & 7 year duration
of immunity studies on the rabies vaccine, finance a study of the rabies vaccine adjuvants to
improve safety and to set up a rabies vaccine adverse reporting system.

What's That Strange, Scary Lump?
[A discussion of benign lumps on a dog...]
"The papilloma virus is a virus that creates warts. These warts have certain characteristics, for example, they tend to look like tiny lumps of cauliflower.
They're usually flesh-colored, but they can also be pink, black or grey. ."
"Papillomas, the fancy word for warts, typically develop in dogs with immune system imbalances or an episode of immune system suppression."
"In my practice I use the expression of papillomas as a barometer of the health of a dog's immune system.
If the immune system is thriving, usually few if any warts grow. If they do appear, they often resolve on their own."
"The condition of 'vaccinosis,' which is too much vaccine present in a dog's body, is a factor in viral wart expression.
The warts are an indication the animal has had a negative reaction to a vaccine and/or has been vaccinated unnecessarily."
"And here's another interesting fact. The homeopathic treatment for warts is the very same homeopathic treatment for vaccinosis – a remedy called
Thuja. This is another indicator of the correlation between over-vaccinating and expression of viral warts."

It is sad when the veterinarians and dog owners are warned about vaccine dangers yet we struggle to get AMA officials look at the mountains of evidence that vaccines are injuring our children. From an article by Dr. Martin Goldstein in a recent issue of Animal Wellness I picked up this weekend at Barnes and Noble. page 19:
By now, most animal guardians are aware of the risks of over-vaccination. Even in younger animals, too many vaccines can cause a wide number of side effects, ranging from fever and stiffness to injection site sarcomas, autoimmune problems, allergies, dermatitis, thyroid problems, and even kidney and liver disease.
The irony is that most vaccines protect against illness for three years, perhaps even longer, which makes annual boosters completely unnecessary. Rather than scheduling a full set of vaccinations every year, ask your vet if he/she can do a titer test instead. This simple. inexpensive, blood antibody test will tell you if your animal can get by without being re-vaccinated.
This is the first I heard about injection-site sarcomas but a search of the internet yields numerous such reports in vet medicine. This citation gives an intriguing hypothesis of the etiology:
Postvaccinal sarcomas in the cat: epidemiology and electron probe microanalytical identification of aluminum.
Hendrick M.J. — Goldschmidt M.H. — Shofer F.S. — Wang Y.Y. — Somlyo A.P.
From: Cancer Res (1992 Oct 1) 52(19):5391-4
An increase in fibrosarcomas in a biopsy population of cats in the Pennsylvania area appears to be related to the increased vaccination of cats following enactment of a mandatory rabies vaccination law.
The majority of fibrosarcomas arose in sites routinely used by veterinarians for vaccination, and 42 of 198 tumors were surrounded by lymphocytes and macrophages containing foreign material identical to that previously described in postvaccinal inflammatory injection site reactions. Some of the vaccines used have aluminum-based adjuvants, and macrophages surrounding three tumors contained aluminum oxide identified by electron probe microanalysis and imaged by energy-filtered electron microscopy. Persistence of inflammatory and immunological reactions associated with aluminum may predispose the cat to a derangement of its fibrous connective tissue repair response, leading to neoplasia.
I wonder if this has been reported in children?? Hepatitis B vaccine for example contains aluminum and is injected into the thigh in infants. In another interesting note:

I don't know about you, but I am thinking about taking my first born child to a local veterinarian. I think they have it figured out!

New York Legislation
Email received 10 May 2006.
The world's 2 leading authorities on veterinary vaccines -- Dr. W. Jean Dodds of Hemopet and Dr. Ronald Schultz
of the University of Wisconsin's School of Veterinary Medicine -- have contacted New York's legislators urging them
to VOTE NO on Senate Bill S02164 and Assembly Bill A04253 (see e-mails below sent with permission) which would
require boarding kennels and groomers to obtain proof of vaccination within the previous year (annual vaccination)
with vaccines which have been scientifically proven durations of immunity of more than 7 years to provide services
to New York's cats and dogs. To require pet owners (consumers) to pay for redundant vaccinations from which their
animals derive no benefit runs contrary to consumer protection laws. These bills appear to promote veterinary
medical malpractice by putting veterinarians in the untenable position of having to give animals drug overdoses
(vaccines are biologic drugs) in order for their owners to be able to board or groom them.
Passage of unresearched, non-scientifically supported legislation like this will have a profound impact on
the health of companion animals and their owner's finances. Please do not allow these bills to pass through
inaction. Your pets need you to fight this for them, and these legislators need more than a whimper from pet
owners, they need a resounding roar to vote AGAINST these bills (http://public.leginfo.state.ny.us/menugetf.cgi
insert S02164 in the box at the top after "Bill No.", click "2006" and check the "text" box to read the text of
the bill). To contact the appropriate New York legislators, even if you're not a New York resident, copy and paste

Wyoming’s New Euthanasia Rule
[Note: We at VacLib believe immunity is natural, does not depend upon pre-existing antibodies,
and that good health is the only immunity. Vaccinations are not necessary
or beneficial. However, until this knowledge becomes wide spread we must assist individuals working within the belief
system that vaccines "immunize".]

Dr. Jamie Snow
Wyoming Department of Public Health
Re: Wyoming’s New Euthanasia Rule
Greetings Dr. Snow:
In light of current scientific research, Wyoming’s rabies rule requiring mandatory euthanasia for cats
and dogs deemed “unvaccinated” is unjustified. While I recognize that you have a mandate to protect public health, your new rule will needlessly take the lives of countless pets which are actually immune to rabies despite being overdue for or medically exempt from rabies boosters.
Under the new rule, it appears companion animals overdue for a rabies booster by a week or month (according to vaccine manufacturer’s recommendations) would be deemed “unvaccinated,” disregarding the fact that study results published in 1992 by Michel Aubert’s research team demonstrated that dogs were immune to a rabies challenge 5 years post-vaccination (see text of that study below). Serological studies done by Dr. Ronald Schultz of the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine show that dogs have antibody titer counts at levels known to confer immunity to rabies 7 years post-vaccination. Based on the scientific research, any dog euthanized in Wyoming under this rule within 5 to 7 years of rabies vaccination will die needlessly.
On Page 13 of the The American Animal Hospital Association's (AAHA’s) 2003 Canine Vaccine Guidelines (accessible online at Leeburg Training http://www.leerburg.com/special_report.htm), it states: “The minimum DOI for killed rabies vaccine based on challenge studies is 3 years; based on antibody titers, it is considered to be up to 7 years [Table 2].” Vaccine manufacturers are not required by FDA to demonstrate long-term duration of immunity in order to license their products. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association’s Principles of Vaccination (http://www.avma.org/issues/vaccination/vaccination.asp), “..revaccination frequency recommendations found on many vaccine labels …does not resolve the question about average or maximum duration of immunity [Page 2] and.may fail to adequately inform practitioners about optimal use of the product…[Page 4] .” This holds true for rabies vaccines, as Aubert’s and Schultz’s studies demonstrate that rabies vaccination confers minimum duration of immunity in dogs far beyond vaccine manufacturers’ 3 year booster recommendation.
In conversations with rabies vaccine researchers, I have been told that the Center for Disease Control has no recorded cases of any dog contracting rabies after receiving 2 rabies vaccinations. The implication is that 2 rabies vaccinations confer a lifetime of immunity. As a veterinarian, your own experience being vaccinated against rabies indicates the same. The Populations at Risk for Rabies sheet from Chiron Corporation, manufacturers of the RabAvert rabies vaccines for humans is accessible at http://www.rabavert.com/risk.html. Their pre-exposure vaccination recommendation for veterinarians, who are at greater risk than the general population for contracting rabies because their profession brings them into physical contact with potentially rabid animals, is for a “Primary course. No serologic testing or booster vaccination.” In other words, after the initial series of rabies vaccinations, it is not recommended that veterinarians receive further boosters or serological testing, they are considered to be immune to a challenge. AAHA’s 2003 Canine Vaccine Guidelines (accessible online at Leeburg Training http://www.leerburg.com/special_report.htm) states on Page 18 that “There is no indication that the immune system of canine patients functions in any way different from the human immune system. In humans, the epidemiological vigilance associated with vaccination is extremely well-developed and far exceeds similar efforts in animals whether companion or agricultural. This vigilance in humans indicates that immunity induced by vaccination in humans is extremely long lasting and, in most cases, life-long.” This strongly suggests that, like the human rabies vaccine, the canine rabies vaccine also provides life-long immunity.
The science reflects that Wyoming will be euthanizing immune dogs under the new euthanasia rule. I strongly urge you to re-examine this policy and consult with the world’s leading authorities on veterinary vaccines -- Dr. W. Jean Dodds of Hemopet and Dr. Ronald Schultz of the University of Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine -- about modifying this scientifically unwarranted euthanasia rule.
Ensuring that Wyoming’s beloved companion animals are not needlessly euthanized justifies closer scrutiny of this rule.

It needs to be understood that disease in humans and animals is caused by unnatural lifestyle elements.
Lack of sanitation and malnutrition are two common causes of disease. Today malnutrition is common in our companion animals
both because the diet is unnatural and in addition commercial food frequently is loaded with toxic chemicals.
Vaccinations are a violation of internal "sanitation"
in that poisons are introduced directly into the animals body. Keep your animals away from poisons and feed them
healthy diets and their health will outshine our own.

Science of Vaccine Damage by Catherine O'Driscoll -
In vaccinated animals, parvo is being replaced with "... cancer, leukaemia and other inflammatory or autoimmune
(self-attacking) diseases ..."
An important weblink for the study of vaccine damage is here -
Russell Swift, DVM, Fort Lauderdale, USA, said: "I believe that poor diet and vaccinations are responsible
for most chronic diseases. Acute 'diseases' are discharges of toxins and energy from the body.
The 'causative' germs assist by breaking down toxins and stumulating cleansing. By preventing these
discharges, vaccines result in chronic disorders. Injected vaccines preservatives. They implant mutated
microorganisms, preservatives, foreign animal proteins and other compounds directly into the system.
This is done in the name of 'preventing' a few syndromes. If an animal is in an optimal state of health,
he or she will produce the strongest immune response possible. This response offers protection against all
NATURAL challenges. The irony is that vaccine labels say they are to be given only to healthy animals.
If they were truly healthy, they would not need them. Those who are not healthy are the most severely damaged".
