How many vaccines does your pet really need? Over-vaccinating has been shown to cause conditions such as:
We recommend a reduced vaccination protocol which includes a later start date on puppy or kitten vaccines and no more than one booster. We also recommend giving vaccines on separate visits to minimize the adverse effects on your pet’s immune system. Rabies is typically give an 4-6 months of age and per state law should be boosted in 1 year and then given every 3 years after that.
We recommend vaccinations for adult dogs and cats based on risk of exposure to disease. We will make recommendations for your pet based on its individual needs.
We offer homeopathic detoxification protocols to help minimize the effects of vaccines. These are an inexpensive and easy way to help your pet process the vaccines and minimize adverse reactions.
A titer is the measure of antibodies against a certain disease. If your pet has a certain level of antibodies, then it is protected and there is no need to vaccinate. The test requires a small amount of blood and we can now run certain titers right in our clinic at an affordable cost.
*Please note that although we can run titers for the Rabies virus, this is not a legal substitution for the vaccine.
See our Titer Partners page for a list of pet service businesses in the area such as boarding kennels, groomers, and day care facilities that that have partnered with us to honor titers instead of vaccines. Please call each business individually to get a full understanding of requirements.
Nosodes are made from a homeopathic dilution of tissue from a diseased animal. They provide protection on an energetic level by stimulating the body’s vital force to eliminate disease. There is a great deal of evidence that nosodes are effective, but they do not create a measurable antibody level.
Nosodes may be started at any age, and, unlike traditional vaccines are also effective after a suspected exposure. A series of increasing potency is given and takes about 2 months to complete. Booster doses of the highest potency are given at least annually, or more frequently based on risk of exposure. We provide the following nosodes:
Your pet may stay perfectly healthy with no vaccinations at all. Keeping a strong immune system through proper management may be the entire defense your pet needs to fend off disease. Proper nutrition and keeping a healthy gut will provide an important basis to keeping your pet healthy and free of disease.
Vaccines are far from benign and although they can provide some protection to your pet, their excessive use can cause debilitating and even fatal disease conditions. Every pet is an individual and should not be vaccinated any more than necessary based on its risk of exposure.
We will help you create a vaccine protocol specific for your pet’s needs without creating any unnecessary risk.
If your pet is already suffering from vaccine-related disease, we can help with gentle holistic treatments and nutritional support.
