Canine Health Page
This site is for people interested
learning more about
canine nutrition and health.
I have put

You will find information and links about holistic care, homeopathy,
Bach Flower remedies, what is really in commercial kibble, alternatives to
feeding commercial kibble, home cooking for your dog, plants that are poisonous to dogs,
support pages for people with dogs that are ill or have died, dog-related e-mail lists

starting point for your explorations into canine nutrition and health. Enjoy!

A practice that was started many years ago and that lacks scientific
validity or verification is annual revaccinations. Almost without exception
there is no immunologic requirement for annual revaccination. Immunity to
viruses persists for years or for the life of the animal. Successful
vaccination to most bacterial pathogens produces an immunologic memory that
remains for years, allowing an animal to develop a protective
anamnestic (secondary) response when exposed to virulent organisms. Only the
immune response to toxins requires boosters (eg: tetanus in humans), and no
toxin vaccines are currently used for dogs or cats. Furthermore, revaccination
with most viral vaccines fails to stimulate an anamnestic (secondary) response
as a result of interferance by existing antibody (similar to maternal antibody
interferance). The practice of annual vaccination in our opinion should be
considered of questionable efficacy unless it is used as a mechanism to provide
an annual physical examination or is required by law (ie: rabies vaccinations
in some states).
