Are Vaccines for Pets and People Effective?

What is Vaccinosis?

When an acute crisis happens following a vaccine in a veterinary clinic you are at least in a place where life saving techniques can be employed, however what if it happens days, weeks or years later? In homeopathic medicine, vaccination is considered to cause a chronic condition with multiple symptoms, and this is called “vaccinosis.” When faced with these symptoms, you or your traditional or Western trained vet may not even see it as a sign of illness. Vaccinosis symptoms include subtle signs such as; laziness, finickyness, poor grooming habits, hairballs, bladder and kidney problems, chronic vomiting or diarrhea, chronic or recurrent upper respiratory infections, increased or displaced sexual behavior, aggression, destructiveness, wool-sucking, pica (eating indigestible items, or even their own poop), seizures, excessive licking, hot spots, and over-grooming. The vaccinosis condition can be inherited as well. In homeopathy this is referred to as a “miasm.” What actually is happening is, each generation simply becomes more and more ill, unless reversed by species-specific raw food nutrition (see Homemade Food for Cats) and holistic therapies which I share here in my Celestial Musings blog as often as possible.

For example, when people contract measles, their overall immune system is strengthened in response to the mild challenge of this disease. (Death as a consequence of measles is generally seen only in undernourished populations.) When doctors started routinely vaccinating children against measles, we started to see babies who contracted measles at a dangerously early age because their vaccinated mothers were not able to pass on immunity to them. And what was the medical community’s solution to this dilemma? Vaccinate infants for measles even earlier! I am appalled by the vaccinating of newborn infants with the hepatitis B vaccine the day they are born. Remember, when humans used to be vaccinated only a few times in their lives? The powers that be seem to be abusing their powers for people and pets. You may have read about this case recently which illustrates what might become more common place if we don’t start becoming informed as to what is going on in the world of Big Pharma today.

It may be even worse for our animals as they are vaccinated once or twice a year for their entire life and you may not even be aware of when they do it until you check your bill and see that you have been charged for yet another vaccination. If your pet needs to travel, even more vaccines are imposed on them, because authorities want a proof of a visit to a vet who provides a vaccination certificate which then has a very short shelf life.

Most people with chronically ill animals believe the animals were already sick when they got them, and usually blame the breeder or the shelter they got them from. But most often we can trace their problems to the time of vaccination (or in homeopathy it is said to be traceable back to when their parents were vaccinated). Sometimes kittens and puppies and even kids never really seem to be glowing in health again after they are vaccinated. The symptoms may be subtle or severe depending on the individual. This is the problem with herd medicine, no one is treated as a unique being but just part of some sort of bio-mass.

It’s true that vaccinosis does not afflict all vaccinated animals; some are lucky enough to have very strong immune systems. The same is true for people! But if you or your animals have ever been affected by it, you’ll never forget it. You take a risk every time you allow your animals, your children, or yourself to be vaccinated unnecessarily. It is a medical procedure and these procedures come with risks…those risks include death. Remember, it’s your decision, unless the laws in your city, state or country, complicate your freedom of choice.

Vaccines simply do not work all the time and that is a medical fact. In both human and veterinary medicine, there are many recorded instances of no immunity developing, or of so-called “vaccine breaks” occurring, whereby the stimulation of antibodies isn’t sufficient to protect against the natural disease. Conventional medicine claims those are body faults and/or genetic problems. There does appear to be a genetic component to which animals (and humans) may have trouble responding to a vaccine; a titer test may help distinguish these individuals. However, giving a non-responding animal (or human) more vaccines is unlikely to force an appropriate immune response ever and it certainly can cause more problems and potential chronic conditions in the long run. For example this excellent article examines what is happening with a push to medicate and vaccinate pregnant women, to prevent obesity and diabetes. This is pretty far out!

What is included in human vaccines might be very troubling to vegans who might still wish to vaccinate their kids!

Without spending a lot of our real estate here in my blog on this subject just take a look at this article and see how you feel about pig virus DNA in your kid’s shots. I also suggest you take a look at the long list of contaminants in today’s vaccines (see and see how many animal products are included and then injected straight into your kids bodies.

And when you hear the mainstream media tell you that vaccines don’t cause autism please read this article for the flip side to that “mumbo jumbo.”

There is much more to be covered on the subject of vaccines for both people and animals and we will delve into this in future issues of my Celestial Musings blog here at Care2. In the meantime, stay informed and make educated decisions for yourself, your family and your animals!

There are a number of doctors and vets now who are openly saying that constant vaccinations do NOT save your pet, especially if they're not being exposed to the items in question. I think we need to explore all avenues, not just lock-step to what Big Pharma wants.

thank you for sharing this info

Tricia H., probably time to find another vet.

My vet won't even let them in the door without them!!

Vaccines can be very dangerous and there are often effective alternative options.

There is also a very controversial alternative homeopathically to traditional vaccines and we can learn a bit about them in relation to our animal companions here:

This just in from (NaturalNews) The concept of vaccinating to immunize began in 1796, when British apothecary (pharmacist) Edward Jenner inserted cowpox pus under the skin of an eight year old boy. Jenner based his experiment on an unsubstantiated rumor that anyone who had experienced cowpox would be immune to smallpox.

Over the next couple of years, Jenner vaccinated others with cowpox to immunize them against smallpox. Without any actual proof of efficacy and safety, Jenner impressed King George III enough with a bogus immunization guarantee that he was awarded the equivalent of today's $500,000.

Thus, Jenner was the first medical professional to administer diseased matter as medication to a healthy person and receive a substantial financial award. He was also the first to constantly denounce vaccination detractors successfully. He was protecting both his ego and large public purse.

Many health professionals throughout the 19th Century knew that there had been several cases of smallpox among those with cowpox histories. Jenner's premise was flawed. See just how flawed and only the tip of the iceberg here:

Check out this action by nurses regarding vaccinations. Very telling indeed!
