New Vaccine Protocol Accepted by all 27 Vet Schools
by Dr. Jean Dodd
All of the 27 Vet Universities in the US have followed the immunization protocol
as suggested by Dr. Dodd for years. All of these Hospitals will be changing
their Vaccination Programs apparently. This is welcome news and you should print
this out and take it with you to your Vet should you need reinforcement against

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 dogs and cats.
Some of this information will present an ethical & economic challenge to Vets,
and there will be skeptics. Some organizations have come up with a political
compromise suggesting vaccinations every 3 years to appease those who fear loss
of income vs. those concerned about potential side effects. Politics,
traditions, or the doctors economic well-being should not be a factor in a
medical decision.

Dogs and cats immune systems mature fully at 6 months. If a modified live virus
vaccine is given after 6 months of age, it produces immunity, which is good for
the life of the pet (i.e.: canine distemper, parvo, feline distemper). If
another MLV vaccine is given a 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, they subject 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. This natural protection can last 8 - 14 weeks. Puppies & kittens should
NOT be vaccinated at LESS than 8 weeks. Maternal immunity will neutralize the
vaccine and little protection (0-38%) will be produced. Vaccinati
on 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 months of age (usually at l year 4 mo) will provide LIFETIME IMMUNITY.
