What *really* in your pets vaccines?

Hello Friend,

Welcome to Friday!

Ahhhh... the vaccine thing...

To vaccinate OR not.. and are you harming your dog/cat by doing so?

Great questions. Before we go the info from Dr Jean Dodds, here are some of my thoughts...

In my brief 'humble' opinion, I feel that clearly vaccines have a place in disease prevention, that you should still consider vaccines for puppies/kittens, BUT we have given FAR to many vaccines..TO OFTEN..

Which has resulted in disease

Ie Immune Mediated Disease

Fatal Vaccine induced Fibrosarcoma..

I am of the current belief to get the basic puppy/kitten vaccines, TITER test at a year, then based on the results, decide whether or not my pet would need any further vaccines.

STRICTLY indoor cat.

No vaccines needed in my opinion...

Assuming you want to do something at home to keep your cat healthy without vaccines.. I have a supplement for you to consider..

Adjuvants and Additives..what's is your dog and cat's vaccines?


An adjuvant is a pharmacological or immunological agent that modifies the effect of other agents. Adjuvants may be added to a vaccine to boost the immune response to produce more antibodies and longer-lasting immunity, thus minimizing the dose of antigen needed.

The most commonly used adjuvants include aluminum hydroxide and paraffin oil.


Additives found in the vaccines include preservatives like thimerosol (mercury), stabilizers to prolong shelf life.

The vaccines also contain small amounts of the culture materials used to make the vaccine in the 1st place..ie fetal calf serum, human serum albumin, along with other less desirable ingredients such as formaldehyde (prevent toxin contamination), and even antibiotics.

Side Effects

According to Dr Jean Dodds, that while adjuvants boost immune response, they increase the risk of autoimmune and anti-inflammatory events following vaccines.

Younger dogs and cats are at increased risk because they are given more vaccines- more vaccine means more adjuvants/additives and potentially more side effects.

Surprisingly, adjuvants can affects how genes are expressed- affecting the nervous system. Dr Dodds says that "adjuvants are now known to affect the nervous system-immune axis, which plays a key role in brain development and immune function."

AISIA Syndrome

Auto-inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants was 1st recorded as a clinical disease in 2011.

According to Dr Dodds it included four conditions sharing signs and symptoms which can be secondary to vaccines. The triggering effect of the adjuvants, in combination with other factors ( ie environment, genetic predisposition). The unfortunate result is the development of autoimmune disease: your pet's immune system is literally attacking them.

Specifically heavy metals like mercury and aluminum are directly involved- such as what is commonly found in rabies vaccines.

The reaction can happen anywhere from three till 45 days post vaccine. Signs can include skin disease ( allergy), seizures, aggression, liver disease, polyarthritis, hemolytic anemia, immune mediated thrombocytopenia, even phobias.

The solution

Less vaccines, less often

Only giving what is necessary, based on your area

Ask you veterinarian about non-adjuvanted vaccines
