Age and Longterm Immunity
http://tinyurl.com/2b3h2uv
The present study examines the DOI for core viral vaccines in dogs that had not been revaccinated for as long as 9 years. These animals had serum antibody to canine distemper virus (CDV), canine parvovirus type 2 (CPV-2) and canine adenovirus type-1 (CAV-1) at levels considered protective and when challenged with these viruses, the dogs resisted infection and/or disease. Thus, even a single dose of modified live virus (MLV) canine core vaccines (against CDV, cav-2 and cpv-2)or MLV feline core vaccines (against feline parvovirus [FPV], feline calicivirus [FCV] and feline herpesvirus [FHV]), when administered at 16 weeks or older, could provide long-term immunity in a very high percentage of animals, while also increasing herd immunity.

" 2. The WSAVA also states that the last puppy vaccine against the core diseases should be given at 14-16 weeks of age. This is because, before this time, the mother passes immunity to her puppies, and this ‘maternal immunity’ can prevent the vaccine from working.

3. A high percentage (98%) of core puppy vaccines given between 14-16 weeks of age will provide immunity against parvovirus, distemper and adenovirus for many years, and probably for the life of the animal .

6. The WSAVA supports the use of titre testing. ...."

There is an association between contact allergy to aluminium and persistent subcutaneous nodules in children undergoing hyposensitization therapy.

Netterlid E, Hindsén M, Björk J, Ekqvist S, Güner N, Henricson KA, Bruze M.
Department of Clinical Sciences in Malmö, Faculty of Medicine, Lund University, Lund, Sweden. eva.netterlid@med.lu.se

BACKGROUND: The development of persistent itchy nodules at the injection site following hyposensitization therapy with aluminium-precipitated antigen extract has been described in several reports. Occasionally, contact allergy to aluminium has been reported in individuals with such nodules.

OBJECTIVES: To investigate if hyposensitization therapy can induce contact allergy to aluminium and examine if there is any association between persistent subcutaneous nodules and aluminium allergy.

PATIENTS/METHODS: Sixty-one children with allergic asthma and/or allergic rhinitis participated in the study of whom 37 had had hyposensitization therapy. The study consisted of a non-clinical part based on a questionnaire and a clinical part with a physical examination, self-assessment of itching, and patch testing. To secure an unbiased evaluation of possible reactions, the investigators were blinded.

RESULTS: Contact allergy to aluminium was found in eight participants, all in the exposed group (8/37 versus 0/24, P = 0.02). Examination showed nodules on the upper arms in 13 participants, all in the group exposed to hyposensitization therapy. Nodules were over-represented in patients with contact allergy to aluminium.

CONCLUSIONS: There was a statistically significant association between contact allergy to aluminium and persistent subcutaneous nodules in children who had had hyposensitization therapy.

Impact of Giardia vaccination on asymptomatic Giardia infections in dogs at a research facility

Feces were collected from 107 asymptomatic dogs at a research facility in Guelph, Ontario. The prevalence of Giardia infection was 11% (12/107). To assess the effectiveness of Giardia vaccination for treatment of Giardia carriage, 9 additional asymptomatic Giardia antigen-positive dogs were brought into the facility. The Giardia antigen-positive dogs were then randomly allocated to receive either vaccine (n = 10) or a saline placebo (n = 10). Feces were then monitored monthly for 6 mo for Giardia antigen and Giardia cysts. At weeks 4, 8, 12, and 16 following vaccination, there were more Giardia-positive dogs in the vaccinated group (10/10, 9/10, 9/10, 8/10, respectively) compared with the controls (7/10, 7/10, 8/10, 4/10, respectively). At week 20, an equal number of dogs (5/10) were Giardia positive, and at week 24, fewer dogs were positive in the vaccinated group than in the control group (2/10 versus 5/10, respectively). However, there was no significant difference between the 2 groups. Vaccination was, therefore, not an effective treatment for asymptomatic canine Giardia infections in this setting.

Red Rock Rattlesnake Vaccine
http://www.redrockbiologics.com/
http://rattlesnakevaccinefordogs.com/segC_trans.html


Quote:
University of California Veterinary Teaching Hospital
The canine rattlesnake vaccine comprises venom components from Crotalus atrox (western diamondback). Although a rattlesnake vaccine may be potentially useful for dogs that frequently encounter rattlesnakes, currently we are unable to recommend this vaccine because of insufficient information regarding the efficacy of the vaccine in dogs. Dogs develop neutralizing antibody titers to C. atrox venom, and may also develop antibody titers to components of other rattlesnake venoms, but research in this area is ongoing. Owners of vaccinated dogs must still seek veterinary care immediately in the event of a bite, because 1) the type of snake is often unknown; 2) antibody titers may be overwhelmed in the face of severe envenomation, and 3) an individual dog may lack sufficient protection depending on its response to the vaccine and the time elapsed since vaccination. According to the manufacturer, to date, rare vaccinated dogs have died following a bite when there were substantial delays (12-24 hours) in seeking treatment. Recommendations for booster vaccination are still under development, but it appears that adequate titers do not persist beyond one year after vaccination. Adverse reactions appear to be low and consistent with those resulting from vaccination with other products available on the market. The product license is currently conditional as efficacy and potency have not been fully demonstrated. Based on existing evidence, the UC Davis VMTH does not currently recommend routine vaccination of dogs for rattlesnake envenomation, and the vaccine is not stocked by our pharmacy.

We have had a number of calls about the rattlesnake vaccine. Because of the potential for adverse reactions to this vaccine and the lack of experience with it, we do not recommend using it unless your dog is at a very high risk.
http://www.vetmed.wsu.edu/depts-vth/vaccinations.aspx


Quote:
The rattlesnake vaccine can have a specific reaction related to only this vaccine. A seroma (a pocket of clear reddish fluid) or local swelling can occur. It will occur in less than 1% of the time the vaccine is given, regardless of whether the pet has had a reaction to it or not. The seroma can be quite large and sometimes uncomfortable.

Typically this seroma will resolve with time and warm compressing. On rare occasion a drain might need to be surgically placed.

If this reaction occurs, then the pet can still get subsequent rattlesnake vaccines in the future as the risk of forming a seroma will be neither increased or decreased.

If your pet has had a reaction to this vaccine I would recommend that you email Red Rock Biologic or call them at (866) 897-7625.

Dr. Dodds Says: The rattlesnake vaccine is a killed, inactivated product that I’ve been told will not protect against the Mojave Green, the most common form of rattlesnake in the Southern California desert. As it is not a highly purified snake extract, it does cause adverse reactions, some quite serious with sloughing of skin and muscle at and below the injection site. Boosters are required after the initial series on a annual basis. We recommend teaching your animals rattlesnake avoidance.

Possible Protections when Vaccinating

Russel Blaylock, in a video about the flu vaccine, noted that one way to reduce the risk or vaccine reaction was to ice the area afterward. What this does is prevent the body from sending out a bunch of immune cells to the area, thus decreasing a systemic reaction which will last and be ongoing in the body. I went searching for the video, and found the following, which I hadn't seen before:

Quote:
Treatment for Toxic Vaccine Exposure

1. Place a cold compress on the site of the injection immediately after the injection and continue this as often as possible for at least two days. If symptoms of fever, irritability, fatigue or flu-like symptoms reoccur — continue the cold compresses until they abate. A cold shower or bath will also help.
2. Take fish oils — I recommend the Norwegian fish oil made by Carlson Labs — it has the correct balance of EPA and DHA to reduce the cytokine storm. The dose is one tablespoon a day — if severe symptoms develop — two tablespoons a day until well and then switch to one tablespoon a day. Children — one teaspoon a day.
3. Curcumin, quercetin, ferulic acid and ellagic acid as a mixture — the first two must be mixed with extravirgin olive in one teaspoon. Take the mix three times a day (500 mg of each)
4. Vitamin E (natural form) 400 IU a day (high in gamma-E)
5. Vitamin C 1000 mg four times a day
6. Astaxanthin 4 mg a day
7. Zinc 20 mg a day for one week then 5 mg a day
8. Avoid all immune stimulating supplements (mushroom extracts, whey protein) except beta-glucan — it has been shown to reduce inflammation, microglial activation and has a reduced risk of aggravating autoimmunity, while increasing antiviral cellular immunity.
9. Take a multivitamin/mineral daily (one without iron — Extend Core)
10. Magnesium citrate/malate 500 mg of elemental magnesium two capsules three times a day
11. Vitamin D3:
1. All Children — 5000 IU a day for two weeks after vaccine then 2000 IU a day thereafter
2. Adults — 20,000 IU a day after vaccine for two weeks then 10,000 IU a day thereafter
3. Take 500 mg to 1000 mg of calcium citrate a day for adults and 250 mg a day for children under age 12 years.
12. Avoid all mercury-containing seafood
13. Avoid omega-6 oils (corn, safflower, sunflower, soybean, canola and peanut oils)
14. Blenderize parsley and celery and drink 8 ounces twice a day
15. Take Jatoba tea extract (add 20 drops in on cup of tea) one day before the vaccine and the twice a day thereafter. (you can get it at http://www.iherb.com/Amazon-Therapeutics-Jatoba-1-oz-30-ml/14429?at=0) It is inexpensive.


excerpted from here, which also has the videos: http://weeksmd.com/?p=1966
I've read one of the books that this guy has written on fighting cancer, I know he knows what he is talking about.


***********

Juliette de Bairacli Levy was one of the first experts in Natural Rearing, and I should probably throw in her advice here....

"Juliette de Bairacli Levy deals with compulsory vaccination laws...by neutralizing the vaccinations as much as possible., which she does by immediately pressing outward around the injection site, then rubbing the area with raw lemon juice. This is followed by a day of watered milk and honey and use of laxatives for two nights."

http://tinyurl.com/289war6


***********

My experience is that homeopathy is the most powerful way to combat vaccine reactions. The problem with that, is that you have to know the type of reaction and have someone that knows what they are doing figure out what remedy to give. Most folks either use Thuja or Lyssin. When my nephew vaxed his pup, I was in a quandry, I used Lyssin, which is difficult to find. Thuja is pretty common. Lyssin is more specific to the rabies vaccine, which is why I went with that one.

A homeopathic practitioner (furryboots) discusses using Lyssin here:
http://forums.hpathy.com/forum_posts.asp...ate-give#100322
Quote:
In my many years of work as a veterinary homeopath, I have seen some horrible reactions to rabies vaccine - and they are usually only seen weeks or months after the vacccine, when it is indeed late to undo the damage buy gthe simple expedient of Lyssion 30C. However an immediate response as was seen here, is very often a precursor of worse to come. 

So I completely disagree with the guesswork by a previous well meaning writer, and urge you based on good experience to use Lyssin 30C in aqueous solution, and I suggest you give doses twice a day for 3 to 5 days - longer if ANY symptoms linger.

In future if you can not avoid a Rabies vaccine, it is wise to use it preventively, by giving it twice a day for 5 days, giving the vaccine during the 3rd day. The 5 days is enough if there are no symptoms - but continue longer if there are still symptoms after vaccination.

***

You can use one tablet or globule in three quarter cup water - and succuss it well (succuss = shake against something like a phonebook). Also succuss between doses like 10 times at least.
A cat size dose is about half a ml. (not critical to be accurate, but about that.)

You can get Lyssin here www.homeopathyovernight.com

If you do decide to go ahead and vaccinate then I would always give something to support her liver and help her body process the vaccine. In would recommend the following homeopathic remedies:

Arnica (30c) - one pill before the shot and one pill every four hours untill bed time. Arnica is a terrific remedy for shock of any kind and I have found it really helps

Nuc Vomica (6c)- one pill every moring for a month

Sulpher (6c) - one pill every evening for one month

Both these remedies are liver remedies - as a practicing homeopath who this is my favorite prescription for toxicity resulting from either vaccines or too much pharmacutical medication.

If you can find it (the other three remedies are generally readily available in your local health store)- then give Thuja 30c every day for one week - again a great remedy for preventing vaccine damage.

Leptospirosis

Great info on the Lepto Vaccine:
http://www.2ndchance.info/onesize4all.htm


Quote:
Leptospirosis is a disease that can infect dogs and humans. The bacteria causes severe kidney and/or liver disease.

It is unknown at this time if the actual incidence of leptospirosis is growing in dogs. George E. Moore, DVM, Ph.D., Dipl. ACVIM, of Purdue University, stated in an article in Veterinary Practice News Magazine (October 2010) that, "There's good evidence to support an increase of diagnosed cases of leptospirosis in the U.S." Dr. Ron Schultz of the University of Wisconsin states that there has been no increase in the number of human cases during the past 10-20 years; and a recent study looking for serologic prevalence in raccoons in Wisconsin found 25 percent prevalence, which was the same as found in a study 25 years ago. (Personal communication November 2010). Experts all seem to agree that the incidence of the disease is increasing in urban dogs, as wildlife concentrations increase in these areas. An urban dog is now just as likely to become infected as a hunting dog.

Until recently, Leptospirosis has been considered a zoonotic disease, meaning an infected dog can pass it on to a human. While this potential for transmission exists, it is being called into question. The belief now is that humans contract leptospirosis through the same sources as their dogs, not from their dogs. People like triathletes who swim in open water are at risk.

Before you rush out to get your dog vaccinated, here are five important issues related to this vaccine.


Ten serovars (types) of Leptospirosis are most likely to infect dogs. A vaccine that only protects against two serovars-or even 4 serovars- might be missing the one that could infect your dog.
Infection is much more common than disease.
Duration of immunity, or how long the vaccine lasts, is a concern. For most of the Leptospirosis vaccines, duration of immunity varies from 3-18 months, and varies with different serovars, some creating longer-lasting immunity than others. The immunity to three of the four common serovars most likely lasts 12-18 months. (Schultz, Ford)
Leptospirosis is significant because it is a disease that can be transmitted to humans. Ideally, the vaccine should prevent the dog from getting infected by the leptospirosis organism. However, studies have shown that dogs vaccinated with certain vaccines and then exposed to leptospirosis, while not necessarily getting sick themselves, still "shed" the organism from one serovar in their urine. This could pose a false sense of security to dog owners and actually increase their risk of contracting the disease. Two of the veterinary vaccines now prevent infection and shedding of the organism.
The safety of the vaccine has come into question. All of the vaccines have been shown to cause a hypersensitivity reaction in genetically predisposed animals, and this can last up to four years. (Personal communication with Dr. Ronald Schultz, School of Veterinary Medicine University of Wisconsin-Madison, October 2005, November 2007, August 2012)

In our experience, this disease is extremely rare in our patients, and seems to be found mostly in dogs with poor immune systems.

If you do get the vaccine (we do not offer it at WAH), consider the following:

Do not get it at the same time as any other vaccines, especially viral ones, as they drive the immune responses differently. The body preferentially creates immunity to the Leptospirosis over the viral components (like Distemper and Parvovirus).
Do not give to dogs less than 12 weeks of age. In fact, if you can wait until after the initial core vaccines have been given, this may be safer for your dog.
Remember that the more vaccines given in one office visit, the higher the risk of a reaction, especially in dogs less than 22lbs. ("Adverse events diagnosed within three days of vaccine administration in dogs," JAVMA, Oct. 1, 2005.)
