Lyme Disease Linked to Sudden Aggression
In June 2010 sudden, inexplicable "bursts of fury" caused veterinarians to call it "Lyme Rage Syndrome" but by 2020 doctors and veterinarians linked it to Plum Island Research...
LYME DISEASE AGGRESSION
Lyme disease can cause neurological damage and aggression misdiagnosed as rage syndrome in dogs or mental-emotional disorders in humans. Lyme vaccine can be just as bad!
Sudden, serious aggression in a previously well-mannered dog or person may also be a reaction to Lyme vaccine instead of the actual Lyme disease. If untreated, Lyme disease can result in neurological disorders, peripheral neuropathy, Bell's palsy, etc. Lyme Disease is known to cause "reduced frustration tolerance, irritability, depression, cognitive impairments and mood swings, but more significantly, in a few patients, suicidal and aggressive tendencies." ~ Psychology Today
Routine antibiotic treatment is not always successful after diagnosis of outward physical symptoms such as the classic Lyme rash. It may take months for aggression, irritability, forgetfulness, difficulty concentrating or other symptoms of mental disorder to manifest. Remember, the Lyme spirochetes attack the brain. The American Academy of Neurology lists Lyme disease symptoms as "changes in cognitive function such as thinking, reasoning ..."
Other medical sources list "depression, bipolar disorder, panic attacks, weakness, memory impairment, dyslexia, seizures, anxiety, panic attacks and psychosis" and other classic symptoms of neurological disorders. You can communicate with your doctor about such symptoms but how can your dog tell you he is suffering mental and emotional disorders? You may think he's just being a "bad dog"...
"Rage Syndrome" affects all breeds, from Airedales to Yorkies. The new crop of veterinarians are quick to point out that sudden aggression is more common in purebred dogs but they miss this simple fact: purebred dogs are more likely to receive a full barrage of vaccines, including Lyme vaccine. Also complicating statistics, when a "mixed breed" dog suffers sudden unprecedented aggression it is more often euthanized or dumped at the shelter than is a purebred dog.
When this was first compiled in early 2011, we were just beginning to learn about ii excitotoxins in dog foods (Instant Info) as a cause of behavioral anomalies in humans. We do not excuse aggressiveness but it is our duty to present annotated verified information on the potential behavioral affect of Lyme Disease vaccines AND dog food ingredients. If knowledge can save one dog from being PTS (killed) when in fact, it needs veterinary treatment and/or food correction, we will have done our job.
Lyme Vaccine Background
Thirty years ago a certain pharmaceutical company charged that a competitor had released a vaccine for Lyme Disease before it had ever been diagnosed in the canine. At that time, Lyme Disease was extremely rare. The tick-born illness was first diagnosed in humans in 1975 but inexplicably Lyme Disease wasn't acknowledged in dogs until about 1984. We refer you to the reference links below for information on the origin of Lyme Disease and the possible connection to the Plum Island research facility near Lyme, Ct.
Dog owners, frightened by pharmaceutical hype, rushed to vaccinate their pets against Lyme Disease. Dog bite statistics are unreliable so we can't correlate the vaccine epidemic to increased aggression or dog bite statistics (see below) but Lyme vaccine today is a non-essential, “non-core vaccine”.
The CDC announced production of human Lyme vaccine was discontinued by the manufacturer in 2002. In 2006 the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Assoc.) released the now-famous list of core and non-core vaccines.Veterinary associations, red-faced and forced to admit unnecessary, risky vaccines had been widely recommended, finally relented to public exposure.
A large part of that exposure and pressure was due to Project 2000: Vaccines (quick peek window) launched by this site and referenced by dozens of veterinary, medical, and other professional sites.
Lyme Disease & Lyme Vaccine Aggression
There appears to be a direct association between Lyme vaccine aggression neurological disorders, the unprecedented rise in school shootings and Dog Bite Statistics which have climbed steadily from 1955 to present as evidenced in www.TheDogPress.com (offsite)
NetPlaces Network SAAB Member Dr. Patricia Jordan (offsite) reports "The neurological manifestations with Lyme disease or with Lyme Vaccine Disease have a wide range of symptoms; mood disturbance, confusion, depression, anxiety, and adjustment syndrome as the spirochete is known to penetrate the pituitary gland." see ref. links below
This situation begs for input from those who may have experienced inexplicable "bad temper" or aggression believed to be related to a recent vaccination. How long did the aggressive behavior last? Did you discuss it with your veterinarian? Was any treatment suggested? Did aggressiveness resolve on its own or with medication?
By mid-2020 many thoughtful veterinarians quit giving Lyme Disease vaccine. It is felt to be "unnecessary" but to the well-informed, the vaccine is seen as potentially detrimental to human and animal health.
For more information read PLUM ISLAND: THE MYSTERIOUS HISTORY OF LYME DISEASE if you wonder why America has suffered so much "madness", violence and school shootings since 2017, it might help to understand the impact Lyme Disease and the plethora of vaccines have had on humanity. It is also significant that compulsory vaccination mandates have spread through state school systems... like a virus...
