Parvovirus Shots – What Your Vet Probably Won’t Tell You!
Posted by Admin under: Health .
Almost every dog owner assumes that they need to give their dog Parvo shots to stop them from getting the dreaded Canine Parvovirus, but if your vet told you the truth about these vaccinations, especially the three facts we’ve uncovered based on
hundreds thousands of Parvo cases we’ve dealt with, as well as our extensive research, then you’d probably think differently about them.
Firstly, almost all vaccines in use nowadays are no longer protecting dogs against the latest 2c strain of Parvo.
This 2c strain, which first appeared in the United States during 2006 (although it had been present in Europe and other parts of the world for much longer), is much more aggressive and fast-acting than the older 2a and 2b strains.
For example, we had one customer, in the pacific North West, whose dog first showed symptoms of Parvo on a Sunday morning, and by late that same afternoon, it had already succumbed to this horrific virus.
As time goes on, we are witnessing an increasing number of customers who have adult dogs, as well as puppies, that are fully-vaccinated and that are contracting Parvo and are dying from it, unless they are treated in time.
Until not long ago, the only company that manufactured vaccines that had been 100% challenge-tested against the 2c strain was Intervet, but we’ve now had customers whose dogs were vaccinated using their products, and yet still contracted Parvo.
So, don’t assume that because your dog (whether old or young) has been vaccinated, he’s safe and will be immune.
Secondly, and we know this sounds counter-intuitive, but dogs are actually getting full-blown Parvo from the Parvo vaccinations.
Once again, many of our customers have dogs that display full-scale symptoms of Parvo within literally one or two days (and even a few hours in some cases) after being given their shots.
We know that some of our customers get this, because they themselves have told us that their own children have developed ‘flu shortly after being given their ‘flu jabs.
Well, exactly the same thing is going on with dogs and their Parvovirus shots.
If you stop to consider this for a moment, the vaccines contain modified versions of the live virus, and they are designed to weaken the dog’s immune system, as that is how they are supposed to work – well, that’s the theory. To add insult to injury, many vaccines contain multiple viruses – anywhere from four to seven or eight at a time.
Lastly, and perhaps most disturbing of all, is the fact that your dog’s immune system can be weakened by any vaccinations, not just Parvo ones. The results of this are obvious: your dog will have an increased chance of becoming ill in the future.
Other side-effects of vaccinations include chronic inflammation, which will cause the obvious issues like arthritis, but it’s now been proven that inflammation is a leading cause of cancer.
To top it off, the vaccines themselves also contain a wide variety of toxic chemicals, none of which are good for your dog and could cause additional problems.
It’s good that the recommendation for annual booster shots has been reduced by the AVMA to just every three years, but even this is too much. Ongoing research has proven that vaccinations will provide immunity for at least seven years, and perhaps even life.
So in summary then, Parvo vaccinations are no longer that effective against the 2c strain, they may even give your dog full-blown Parvo, and they can cause long-term health issues such as cancer.
If you were to ask your vet, he’d probably disagree with all that we’ve said here, but please bear in mind – it’s your dog, and you have the right to be told all of the facts before coming to an informed decision about which Parvo treatment to go fo, and not be hectored into doing something you don’t want to do.
