Core Vaccines protect pets but non-core vaccines or over-vaccination can cause immune system and brain damage in humans and animals

 

VACCINE INFORMATION"The Jab" is high profit for the veterinarian because it often leads to serious immune system breakdown and/or neurologial damage

 

First shots, when and what to give your puppy, followed by (which) booster shots and a big dose of caution regarding the dangerous practice of over-vaccination.

 

 

AVMA PUPPY SHOTS SCHEDULE

2015 Vaccination charts from American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA)

 

We present this chart of recommended first shots and booster shots for puppy and for adults because there is so much bad and/or conflicting advice on the internet AND from veterinary practices that are more interested in their bottom line than in protecting the health of your dog.

 

As in all medical treatments, TheDogPlace.org Science and Advisory Board advises owners to always weigh risk of exposure, in this case, contracting a virus that could make your dog seriously sick or potentially kill him, against the risk of the treatment or preventative.

Comments

Canine Distemper Core High > 1 year for modified live virus (MLV) vaccines Low  
Parvovirus Core High > 1 year Low  
Hepatitis Core High > 1 year Low Only use canine adenovirus-2 (CAV-2) vaccines
Rabies Core High Dependent upon type of vaccine Low to moderate  
Respiratory disease from canine adenovirus-2 (CAV-2) NonCore Not adequately studied Short Minimal If vaccination warranted, boost annually or more frequently
Parainfluenza NonCore Intranasal MLV - Moderate Injectable MLV - Low Moderate Low Only recommended for dogs in kennels, shelters, shows, or large colonies; If vaccination warranted, boost annually or more frequently
Measles NonCore High in preventing disease, but not in preventing infection Long Infrequent Use in high risk environments for canine distemper in puppies 4-10 weeks of age
Bordetella NonCore Intranasal MLV - Moderate Injectable MLV - Low Short Low For the most benefit, use intranasal vaccine 2 weeks prior to exposure
Leptospirosis NonCore Variable Short High Up to 30% of dogs may not respond to vaccine
Coronavirus NonCore Low Short Low Risk of exposure high in kennels, shelters, shows, breeding facilities
Lyme NonCore Appears to be limited to previously unexposed dogs; variable Revaccinate annually Moderate  

 

A possible vaccination schedule for the 'average' dog is shown below.

Dog Vaccination Schedule

Age

Vaccination

5 weeks Parvovirus: for puppies at high risk of exposure to parvo, some veterinarians recommend vaccinating at 5 weeks. Check with your veterinarian.
6 & 9 weeks Combination vaccine* without leptospirosis. Coronavirus: where coronavirus is a concern.
12 weeks or older Rabies: Given by your local veterinarian (age at vaccination may vary according to local law).
12 & 15 weeks** Combination vaccine
Leptospirosis: include leptospirosis in the combination vaccine where leptospirosis is a concern, or if traveling to an area where it occurs.
Coronavirus: where coronavirus is a concern.
Lyme: where Lyme disease is a concern or if traveling to an area where it occurs.
Adult (boosters) Combination vaccine
Leptospirosis: include leptospirosis in the combination vaccine where leptospirosis is a concern, or if traveling to an area where it occurs.
Coronavirus: where coronavirus is a concern.
Lyme: where Lyme disease is a concern or if traveling to an area where it occurs.
Rabies: Given by your local veterinarian (time interval between vaccinations may vary according to local law).
*A combination vaccine, often called a 5-way vaccine, usually includes adenovirus cough and hepatitis, distemper, parainfluenza, and parvovirus. Some combination vaccines may also include leptospirosis (7-way vaccines) and/or coronavirus. The inclusion of either canine adenovirus-1 or adenovirus-2 in a vaccine will protect against both adenovirus cough and hepatitis; adenovirus-2 is highly preferred.
**Some puppies may need additional vaccinations against parvovirus after 15 weeks of age. Consult with your local veterinarian.
According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, dogs at low risk of disease exposure may not need to be boostered yearly for most diseases. Consult with your local veterinarian to determine the appropriate vaccination schedule for your dog. Remember, recommendations vary depending on the age, breed, and health status of the dog, the potential of the dog to be exposed to the disease, the type of vaccine, whether the dog is used for breeding, and the geographical area where the dog lives or may visit.
Bordetella and parainfluenza: For complete canine cough protection, we recommend Intra-Trac II ADT. For dogs that are shown, in field trials, or are boarded, we recommend vaccination every six months with Intra-Trac II ADT.

 

Researchers at the Veterinary Schools at the University of Minnesota, Colorado State University, and University of Wisconsin suggest alternating vaccinations in dogs from year to year. Instead of using multivalent vaccines (combination vaccines against more than one disease), they recommend using monovalent vaccines which only have one component, e.g., a vaccine that only contains parvovirus. So, one year your dog would be vaccinated against distemper, the next year against canine adenovirus-2, and the third year against parvovirus. Then the cycle would repeat itself. Other researchers believe we may not have enough information to recommend only vaccinating every 3 years. Manufacturers of dog vaccines have not changed their labeling which recommends annual vaccinations. Again, each dog owner must make an informed choice of when to vaccinate, and with what. Consult with your veterinarian to help you make the decision.

 

Our staff says "always check with your veterinarian" on vaccine schedules but use informed judgment if that practice pushes any yearly vaccine whether it is on this list of Core Vaccines or not.

 

use this clipboard for your checklist to take to the veterinarianRead manufacturers' statement of duration of immunity, which will be for the shortest time period in order to protect the manufacturer.  Explore the vaccine section for objective, non-aligned information and for your health and that of your dog, be sure get the ii Instant Information on ii Vaccine Induced Disease.

 

Although most breeders give their own shots, using hopefully, the same time-tested vaccine makers that your good veterinarian uses, we recommend that new owners get their puppy's booster shots at the vet's office, by the veterinarian and no one else.  Owners should be furnished a record of the type of vaccine and the manufacturer, and such info should be kept in your puppy's permanent home records.

PARASITES!

 

Unless protected, all Parasites such as fleas, ticks, mites and intestinal worms are all canine parasites and all parasites depress your dog's immune system.  Conversely, a weak immune system can't fight off the toxins and damage done by parasites, whether internal or external.dogs have fleas, ticks, and worms.
