Hello again!
The other day I've been thinking about vaccinations. Nola doesn't have any because she's indoors but someone told me it's a big mistake. What I'm wondering about, is there any statistics about
1) how often vaccinated pets suffer from adverse effects?
2) how often vaccinated pets suffer from the diseases they've been vaccinated against?
3) how often non vaccinated pets suffer from the same diseases?
I tried to search but found nothing. If you have anything to tell about these questions or if you ever manage to find the mentioned stats please let me know! I'd love to have that information because statistics says much better than anything else! Thanks in advance!
Hi Nola,

These are very good questions and I wish I could have all the answers, too.

I don't know if it's accurate to make a comparison with human vaccines, but why not? Both human and pet vaccines can contain mercury, aluminium, formaldehyde, phenols, and other very toxic ingredients which are known to have a hazardous effect on health. You can search for "pet vaccine ingredients" to see that's true. Human vaccinations have been linked to an immense raise in chronic diseases and disabilities in kids in the past years, such as autism, asthma, ADHD, diabetes, arthritis and other immune-system disorders. You can read about it here:

There's some statistics is in the beginning of the article and further on. Now, a fair question. Does anyone have similar statistics for pets? I could never find any. If animal and human vaccines are similar in the toxic ingredients, why not assume pet vaccines can be as harmful as human vaccines? Add here a lack of studies and less safety control, and you'll have even more questions.

I know this is not the kind of answer you were looking for, but I don't think there's a simple answer that will leave no place for doubt. The questions you posed might be that answer, but I don't think vaccine manufacturers are interested in studies like that. They will do everything to make that kind of answers unavailable to the public. All we can do is to keep searching and to make our own conclusions.

OH MY, do they? I must be too emotional but no I'm glad Nola has not been vaccinated! I'll check the link as soon as I get home, I'm on a very slow connection now. Thanks for your post!
I read the article yesterday evening and... I'm aghast! I had no idea there were such stories and numbers behind this routine practice! I think I have also found an answer to my questions above, sadly:

In addition, there have never been any large, prospective, long-term studies comparing the long-term health of highly vaccinated individuals versus those who have never been vaccinated at all.

If there have not been such studies for people, my search for such studies and statistics for pets is nothing but a waste of time. Emotion: sad

I need to give it all a good think. I'm a little overwhelmed. Thanks for that piece of information again, Lauren.
It's a very interesting thread, thanks girls! So far I've only read books and articles about vaccination in Russian. Now I'm getting interested in English sources too. Barsik only had one or two shots in his entire life, when he was a kitten and we took him out of the city for summer time with us (where he could roam "in the wild"). We did it two years in a row so, if my memory is true, those were the only years he was given shots. What I'm thinking about now is that, taking into account debates about vaccination pros and cons, could that possibly be that he has reached his 18 years with no major health problems, including chronic ones, thanks to an absence of vaccination, partly? It's just a guess of course, because there are many other factors like genetics, diet, etc. But maybe a lack of vaccinations contributed to his health, too.
Re studies on vaccinations for people, I find it hard to believe that you were not able to find the studies, check out the NIH (National Instit of Health, or FDA, office of the Surgeon General or UH how can Measals, Whooping Cough, Flu, Polio, Rabies in Pets, Smallpox.... I am getting carried away here, Sorry.

Thanks but I was looking for studies about pets that could answer the questions I posed in the 1st post. Emotion: smile
OOOOOPS!
