Canine Vaccination Chart
______________________________________­__
Distemper is a highly contagious viral disease that affects a dog's respiratory, gastrointestinal, and nervous systems. It can be spread through the air or by contact with an infected animal and its feces, urine, or saliva. Canine distemper can be fatal.

Adenovirus Type 2, also known as Infectious Canine Hepatitis, is spread by contact with an infected animal and its feces, urine, or saliva. It affects the liver, kidneys, and cells lining the blood vessels.

Parainfluenza Virus is a highly infectious virus that can be one of the causes of "kennel cough". It spreads quickly among dogs kept in close quarters and can damage the respiratory system.

Parvovirus is a common, deadly viral infection which usually strikes puppies and infects the rapidly dividing cells of the heart and the intestinal tract. It is spread by contact with an infected dog and its blood, feces, or vomit.

Coronavirus is a viral infection of the gastrointestinal tract; usually infecting puppies less than 6 weeks of age and causing mild clinical signs which may resolve spontaneously. This disease is spread through contact with an infected dog and its blood, feces, or vomit.

Note: A puppy's natural immunity may wear off before the vaccinal immunity is stimulated. The risk of exposure may be reduced by limiting contact with unfamiliar dogs until the vaccination series is completed.

Leptospirosis is an extremely contagious bacterial disease that spreads through contact with nasal secretions, urine, or saliva of infected animals which include common wildlife such as deer, raccoons, and rodents. Early signs are not apparent, so infection can go undetected. This disease can cause permanent kidney damage. Recovered animals can continue spreading this disease. People can also become infected from an infected animal.

Rabies is an infection of the central nervous system that results in paralysis and death. Rabies is always fatal.

• -The immunological protection stimulated by the vaccine for this disease is most effective for the first 6 months after immunization.
• -The vaccine should be given annually if the possibility of exposure occurs within a 6 month period of the year. The vaccine should be given not more than 6 months prior to the possibility of exposure.
• -If exposure occurs at different times of the year more than 6 months apart, the vaccine should be given semi-annually.

This is my first post. I belong to the Pug Meet-up Group and have 4 Pugs. Please learn more than the fear-based information given by the pharmaceutical companies regarding vaccines. There is no guarantee when giving a vaccine that it will work. In fact, I've come to the place where I will not vaccinate my dogs anymore. Vaccines cause more harm, in my opinion, than supposed immunity from disease. They cause their own problems, such as hypothyroidism and cancer.

Health comes from a good diet, exercise, and sunshine, not from a needle. Vaccines bypass all the natural defenses that nature gave our dogs and us, and immunity from various diseases can be acquired naturally, from normal exposure. We all have an immune system or we wouldn't have made it this far.

There is some good info on the Internet if you want to learn more than just trusting in vaccines. A great site is called TruthAboutVaccines.org

My name is Terri Schiebenes from Milwaukee, and the subject of vaccines and vaccine damage is near and dear to me.

This chart is to be used as a Guide to available vaccines only and ones that are recommended by top veterinarians and not to be used as medical advice to follow alone. You should always take your animals to a reputable veterinarian and ask questions to make an informed decision on what prophylactic measures to take while weighing the risk along with the benefits. Good health starts with proper diet and a consistent regiment of exercise. Holistic medicine is a growing field but is filled with many problems of false information and loose guidelines that make information difficult to sift through. There are many self-proclaimed specialists out there who’s only true specialty is misinformation and sales. There are some rather good places to buy good quality natural products and services. Buyer must beware, especially when dealing with something as important as health. Look into the holistic medicines and food available and take into consideration the amount of experience and number of years a business has been selling a product before dumping it in Fido’s bowl. I have found with the Veterinary Medical Associates and the doctors and surgeons there, whom I have personally worked with for years, are of the highest moral character and standards of professionalism. There have been many occasions where surgery or treatment was recommended to patience’s with health problems or injury by other veterinary clinics only to be told later that it is not an issue that would warrant treatment or procedures of such extreme. They give the advice and tell you of risk and reason to make an informed decision. Please use good reasoning and look into what treatments and health care for your pets.
And remember… Don’t Litter; Spay and Neuter.
