You’re told by your Vet that it’s necessary to revaccinate. You also see many of your friends with pets getting their dogs the annual vaccinations “required,” so it makes sense that you would do the same too, right?
Although you are able to make your own decisions as to whether or not to vaccinate, your pet doesn’t. They don’t have the research and information to say yes or no to get vaccinated. They also don’t really have much of a say-so either way. It’s really up to you and what you feel is best.
There can be many follow up health issues and illnesses occurring after vaccinations, which have been expressed by people on multiple platforms. Some people may argue and say that the two (illness and vaccination) are not related, but let’s not be so sure. It takes hardly any time to look up stories of many who have experienced health issues in their pet shortly after vaccination. And these aren’t just temporary illnesses, some are life long.
It’s so common for people to get their pets vaccinated, but is it what you should do? Take a browse on the Internet and see what you can find. Some of the stories may be shocking as to what has resulted shortly after vaccination and throughout a pet’s life because of something labeled as “normal.”
Just because something is labeled as popular opinion does not mean that you have to follow it. You should research and see what makes the most sense for you and your pet and make the decision from there.
So what if you don’t get your pet vaccinated? Then what?
If you have any concerns with your pet there are two important ways to handle it.
- Make sure you are supplementing. Any health issue that arises is through the immune system, so making sure that you’re supplementing your pet with immune boosting supplements will help them stay ahead of sickness.
- Hire a homeopathic vet. They will find ways of treatment that will help your pet in the long term, without risking your pet’s health. This route does take patience if you’re starting a few steps back and your pet is already sick. But with time and commitment to treatment, you may start to notice changes within your pet.
Ultimately vaccination is up to you, we just ask that you stay informed and make the best decision you feel is right for your pet.
