It is well known that there are risks associated with vaccination of dogs,
just as there are risks for humans. The trouble is, no one has adequately quantified the risks. Is it true that only a tiny minority of dogs suffer
adverse reactions to vaccines, or is the problem more common? And what is a
vaccine reaction? Is it something that happens immediately after the jab, or
can you expect a reaction to manifest weeks or months later?
Christopher Day, Honorary Secretary of the British Homoeopathic Veterinary
Association, told us that, in his experience, where the start date of a dog's
illness is known, a high percentage (around 80%) begin within three months of
Canine Health Concern tested this observation and has analyzed the histories
of over 3,800 dogs post vaccination. This critical mass, by any standards, is
a very high number from which to draw valid statistical conclusions. Most commercial scientific research involves significantly fewer dogs (tending to
base their conclusions on data involving a couple of litters of puppies, if
that). We have been able to show a definite statistical correlation between a
vaccine event and the onset of a number of specific illnesses. Our published
conclusions have satisfied mathematical or inferential statistical tests at a
level of confidence of 99% or better.
Overall, we found that 66% per cent of all sick dogs start being sick within
three months of vaccination, which is considerably more than double the expected rate of illness. Worse, 49% of all illnesses reported in the survey
occurred within 30 days of vaccination. This is over five times the expected
percentage if vaccination had no bearing on subsequent illness. More damning
still, 29% of sick dogs first became sick within seven days of their vaccine
jab. This means that a dog is 13 times more likely to become ill within seven
days of vaccination than at any other time.
In the study, 69.2% of allergic dogs first became allergic within three months of being vaccinated - more than double the expected number. 55.8% of
dogs with autoimmune disease developed the condition within three months of
being vaccinated - again, more than twice the expected figure. Of dogs with
colitis, 65.9% developed the complaint within three months of being vaccinated and, of dogs with dry eye/conjunctivitis, 70.2% developed their
conditions within three months - both nearly three times higher than expected. 73.1% of dogs with epilepsy first became epileptic within three
months of vaccination. As 2% of all dogs in the UK are epileptic, vaccines
are clearly causing horrendous damage. For statisticians, our Chi score for
epilepsy is 96: any Chi test statistic higher than twelve gives a 95% confidence about the conclusions. Without doubt, then, the majority of
epileptic dogs in our survey are vaccine damaged.
But perhaps most astonishing is the fact that a majority of dogs (64.9%) with
behavioral problems appear to have developed their difficulties within three
months of vaccination. Similarly, 72.5% per cent of dogs with nervous or worrying dispositions became nervous within three months of their jabs (with
a Chi score of 112), and 73.1% per cent of dogs with short attention spans
lost their attentiveness within three months of vaccination.
All of our evidence ties in with research in the human field, and a growing
body of veterinary research, which says that vaccines cause allergies, hypersensitivity reactions, autoimmune disease, encephalitis, epilepsy,
personality changes and brain damage.
The CHC results are statistically very significant, and carry with them very
high statistical certainty. This means that the evidence is strong that the
above diseases can be triggered or caused by vaccination.
Other diseases that were highly represented within three months post vaccination included cancer (35.1%) , chorea (81%), encephalitis (78.6%),
heart conditions (39.2%), kidney damage (53.7%), liver damage/failure (61.5%), paralysis of the rear end (69.2%), and pancreas problems
Research conducted at Purdue University shows routinely vaccinated dogs
developing auto antibodies to a vast range of normal canine biochemicals -
which corroborates our findings.
Interestingly, our study showed that arthritis and Chronic Destructive Reticulo Myelopathy (CDRM - a degenerative disease affecting myelin in
the spinal cord) occur in clusters nine months after vaccination, suggesting
that the damage from vaccines resulting in these two diseases takes longer
to develop or to show their symptoms.
Many contend that vaccines are a necessary evil; that we need them to protect
our dogs against certain deadly canine diseases. However, our survey found
that high percentages of dogs are developing the diseases we vaccinate against, soon after vaccination.
Of dogs with hepatitis, 64% contracted it within three months of being vaccinated and, of those with parainfluenza, 50% developed it within three
months of their shots. Also, 69% of dogs with parvovirus, 56% of dogs with distemper, and every single dog
with leptospirosis in the survey contracted the diseases within three months
Our figures support the view that vaccines don't confer guaranteed immunity
and may actually cause the diseases they're designed to prevent. Our figures appear to demonstrate that vaccines cause illness in one in
every hundred dogs - and this is a conservative estimate.
For human beings, the
World Health Organization considers a reaction of one in 10,000 unacceptable.
Surely the same statistics apply to dogs. Worse - and bordering on corporate
dog slaughter - is the fact that we are urged to vaccinate companion animals
every year. There is no scientific justification for this; it is a crime.
