Purdue Vaccination Studies and Auto-antibodies

Posted by Erich Trapp on April 26, 2011

There’s an interesting article written by Catherine O’Driscoll and published on-line by Dogs Naturally Magazine about a study done at Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine to determine if vaccines can cause changes in the immune system of dogs that might lead to life-threatening immune-mediated diseases.

The article is quite extensive and goes on to discuss a wide range of vaccine-induced diseases, including some cancers. There is also a helpful source of references at the end.

In summary:

Not only are annual boosters unnecessary, but they subject the pet to potential risks such as allergic reactions and immune-mediated haemolytic anaemia.

In plain language, veterinary schools in America, plus the American Veterinary Medical Association, have looked at studies to show how long vaccines last and they have concluded and announced that annual vaccination is unnecessary.

Further, they have acknowledged that vaccines are not without harm.
