Never Give A Parvo Vaccine To A Puppy With Diarrhea, Worms, Cocci
Research shows that the parvo vaccine works by the vaccine lodging in the intestines and stimulating titer level in the intestinal lining. If the intestinal lining is inflamed with sores from worms, or parasites, then the Parvo vaccine and immune system are unable to work together in a healthy normal environment, with tragic results. It is possible for a modified live Parvo vaccine to induce a parvo like illness when in a pup has inflamed or raw intestinal lining. Informed Vets now call this " Vaccine induced Parvo". Many Vets are not even aware that this fatal illness can occur from a modified live vaccine and this could be because the do not attend seminars on a regular basis. Not all vets have the same knowledge.
My advice is to deworm at 3 and 5 weeks before vaccinating and at the same time make sure no diarrhea is present. Of so then do a fecal test and start medications as prescribed . I give probiotics (Benebac) which help to crowd out harmful bacteria. Any puppies with loose stools after deworming suggests toxics and/or parasites and it is advised for them to be placed on Albon for a few days before vaccinating since vaccinating a puppy with Cocci parasites or sore intestines may be as good as a death sentence in a young pup. I also advise Amber technology "Vaccine Detox" following vaccination. I suggest Amber Technology " Vibractra Plus" if puppy shows distress during vaccinations yet fecals are clear not showing worms or parasites. Be aware that Giarda does NOT show up in all fecal exams and any puppy who has ongoing diarrhea with weight loss should bring to mind Giardia even with a negative fecal result. In my opinion Any Vet of any worth will put a puppy with chronic diarrhea and weight loss on Flagyl for a trial run of three days. It may not be safe to use Vibractra with Albon or Flagy. This subject may also (for interesting details) be researched under a lawsuit breeders brought against a major vaccine company when their vaccinated puppies died. It is my opinion that the vaccine company certainly didn't understand the relationship between cocci infestation, inflammation of intestines and Parvo vaccinations or they may not have lost the lawsuit. Narcropsy showed the dead puppies were infested with Cocci, a BREEDER liability, in my opinion. Breeders may argue back that vaccine companies should be made to disclose on their lables not to give to puppies a modifed LIVE Pavo vaccine if puppies are showing any signs of intestinal issues.
Why a breeder might release puppies too young.
Bad breeders toss 8 week olds into your hands WITHOUT vaccines and such a puppy is vulnerable to fatal Parvo. Bad breeders also want puppies gone by 8 weeks BEFORE the 8 to 12 week growth spurt. Once the growth spurt is over the dishonest breeder won't be able to trick you anymore about size. age. A breeder who is trying to pass off a larger Chihuahua as a teacup will want the puppy gone and in your hands BEFORE the growth spurt occurs. A second reason is because of the work involved with taking care of puppies. Mother dogs stop cleaning up puppies around 6-8 weeks old and the breeder has to take over the job. How much easier is it for the breeder to let the puppy go early?
Canned dog food can spell D E A T H for puppies!
Although the canning process kills bacteria in the animal meat used to make the dogfood, the endotoxins
( bacteria "poop") from the meat may still remain behind once the bacteria cells are destroyed. Tiny fragile puppies either can't handle these byproducts in canned food, or the canned food is far too rich and causes severe diarrhea. I steer away from it. I have never noticed any issues with a high quality premium dry foods. This issue appears only related to wet dog foods. Besides tracing episodes in sick puppies to canned food when i was a novice breeder, I also received many emails once I posted the warnings. People contacted me with sick or dying puppies they bought from other breeders. All these people had their puppies on canned food! Even their Veterinarians didn't know the dangers! Some Veterinarians had actually advised the canned food for these too young puppies who had stopped eating due to stress and resulting illness. Following my advise on how to clean up the intestinal tract of the bad bacteria and toxins, most of their puppies recovered.

Too many vaccines may lead to health decline, even death.
Young puppies have immature immune systems and their immune system can become disrupted when hit with several disease at the same time. (vaccines simulate disease as I mentioned earlier ) How often in nature would any animal get hit with more then one disease at the same time? Never. In our puppies under 9 weeks we give only single Parvo vaccines which address the number one killer of puppies, CPV. This one vaccine allows the pup's immune system to focus on the ONE simulated disease and build titer levels high enough to offer protection against the disease. Studies have shown that multiple vaccines given at the same time in puppies under 10 weeks seems to confuse the immune system so that it is unable to produce proper titer levels of protection. Vaccines simulate disease when put into the body. Protection from disease comes from the pup's immune system . The immune system must respond in a specific way against the disease the vaccine simulated, in order to produce antibodiesAccording to Dr. Pitcairn, vaccines intended to protect pets against acute natural diseases actually create chronic conditions with features of the disease the vaccine was supposed to prevent. Vaccines contain a number of toxic substances, including viruses, mutated bacteria, immune irritants, foreign proteins, and preservatives.
Symptoms of Vaccinosis
Common vaccine reactions include:
Hair loss Lack of appetite
Hair color change at injection site Conjunctivitis
Soreness Oral ulcers
More serious reactions:
Immunosuppression Granulomas and abscesses
Behavioral changes Hives
Vitiligo Facial swelling
Weight loss Allergic hypersensitivity
Reduced milk production (females) Respiratory disease
Lameness Allergic uveitis
Very severe illness:
Injection-site sarcomas (cancer) Glomerulonephritis
Autoimmune arthritis Encephalitis or polyneuritis
Hypertrophic osteodystrophy Abortion
Autoimmune hemolytic anemia Congenital abnormalities
Immune-mediated thrombocytopenia Embryotic (fetal) death
Wouldnt it make more sense to have a blood test to check for titer levels against parvo and distemper instead? If antibodies are high enough in the pets blood to prevent the main lethal diseases then why vaccinate for them that year?
Rabies vaccine. Use with caution. Some advice.
I receive many emails every year from families who wished they had seen my warnings first. Their adult dogs died following a rabies vaccine that their Vet had given right along with the yearly booster vaccines. I have lectured on my site for years to never permit a Vet to throw in the rabies shot along with the boosters.
