When I am working with a client’s animal, I always inquire about the use of vaccinations–whether that client is coming to me with a health concern or behavioral issue. (Often what looks like a behavioral issue is connected to health.) Most clients confidently tell me that they vaccinate yearly. They are expecting that I will be pleased with their responsible actions for their animal. I then proceed to caution them about this practice. Clients are usually skeptical, alarmed in me advising to pull back on vaccinations. We have all been so indoctrinated about the need to vaccinate repeatedly. As I tell clients, most of us received vacs when we were young, and we do not have to have them repeated–why do animals? There are several books written about vets who concur with me, and one such book is, Dr. Pitcairn”s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats. Below is an article that you may find of interest.

Class Action Law suit Chicago law firm of Childress Duffy Goldblatt, Ltd. Announcement!
You may be a party to a potential class action lawsuit arising from the misrepresentation of the need for vaccinations for your pets.
If, within the last four years, you have paid for any of the following pet vaccinations without receiving adequate disclosure, you may have a claim for damages. The vaccines include the following:
1) Annual vaccination for canine distemper, parvovirus, and feline distemper, rhinotracheitis, calcivirus (Scientific studies indicate that repeat administration of these vaccines provides no beneficial effect.)
2) Corona virus vaccination. (Scientific studies indicate dogs over 8 weeks old are not susceptible to this disease.)
3) Leptospirosis or Lyme disease vaccination (Research indicates these diseases are rare tonon-existent in Texas and many other parts of the country.)
4) Feline Aids vaccine, Feline Infectious Peritonitis vaccine, or Giardia vaccine (Scientific studies have shown these vaccines to be ineffective.)

Every year over 30 thousand dogs and cats in the U.S. die from adverse reactions from unnecessary vaccines. It has been ten years since the article first appeared in the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association entitled “Are we Vaccinating too much?” in which and Dr Ron Schultz stated, “Clients are paying for something with no effect except the risk of an adverse reaction”. Since that time the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Association of Feline Practitioners, and the American Animal Hospital Association as well as twenty- two schools of Veterinary Medicine in the U.S. have endorsed reductions in the numbers and frequency of vaccinations recommended for pets. More and more research has confirmed that most vaccines are unnecessary and potentially harmful. And yet 90% of the Veterinarians in the United States have ignored these guidelines, and continue to give vaccines, which have been proven to be unnecessary and potentially harmful.
My efforts in the last six years to promote change have been met with frustration. I have written to every State Board of Veterinary Medicine in the U.S. I have been before the Texas State Board six times. After I appeared before the Texas Sunset Committee, a group of 12 Senators who over- see the State Veterinary Board, they ordered the Board to crack down on unnecessary vaccines. They have not. The Attorney General’s office in Texas has agreed that it is unlawful for a Veterinarian to obtain a fee by the misrepresentation of the benefit or necessity of vaccines. And yet the misrepresentation of vaccines to the public and the harming of our pets continues unchecked.
We need your help. I feel that a class action lawsuit is the only way pet owners can get fair and ethical treatment for our loved ones.
Sincerely,Dr. Bob Rogers, DVM
