Certainty : Security Does it exist? Do we question?
If so, what is the price?
Reassurance and Safety versus Uncertainty and Harder Work
That is people want reassurance and safety and dont want to worrysomething easy, rather than uncertainty and a bit of hard workwhich is why fast food isnt fast enoughsomeone else has done all the thinking. E.g. vaccinate every year rather than visit your vet and think about more complicated stuff like diet and exercise!But just like diet and the consequences in humans, so do the animals suffer.. there is no free ride!That is people want reassurance and safety and dont want to worrysomething easy, rather than uncertainty and a bit of hard workwhich is why fast food isnt fast enoughsomeone else has done all the thinking.

3 yearsDuration of immunity for canine and feline vaccines: a reviewAuthors: Ronald D SchultzJournal: Veterinary MicrobiologyIn our studies aimed at assessing the minimum duration of vaccinal immunity (DOI), approximately 1000 dogs have been vaccinated with products from all the major US veterinary biological companies. The DOI for the various products is determined by antibody titers for all dogs and, by challenge studies in selected groups of dogs. Recently, all major companies that make canine vaccines for the U.S. market have completed their own studies; published data show a 3 years or longer minimum DOI for the canine core products, canine distemper virus (CDV), canine parvovirus type 2 (CPV-2), and canine adenovirus-2 (CAV-2). Studies with feline core vaccines - feline parvovirus (FPV), calicivirus (FCV) and herpes virus type I (FHV-1) have shown a minimum DOI of greater than 3 years. Based on these results, the current canine and feline guidelines (which recommend that the last dose of core vaccines be given to puppies and kittens > or =12 weeks of age or older, then revaccination again at 1 year, then not more often than every 3 years) should provide a level of protection equal to that achieved by annual revaccination. In contrast, the non-core canine and feline vaccines, perhaps with the exception of feline leukaemia vaccines, provide immunity for < or =1 year. In general the effectiveness of the non-core products is less than the core products. Thus, when required, non-core vaccines should be administered yearly, or even more frequently.01/11/2006; 117(1):75-9. I

Immunity increases by continual exposure
Immunity can drop with stress( change)/ weakness
Organisms get stronger the more animals they infect:passage
Vaccination ProgammsDistemper Hepatitis and Parvo10 and 14 weeks 12-15 months 7 years of age Not under 8 weeksYearly titre tests : QML all but PI and BT 3 year vaccination not under 6 weeks
Vaccination :Kennel cough:
killed by Heat and steam, quaternary ammonium
Vaccine contains: CAV2, Para Influenza and Bordatella
Caused by CDV, CAV2, P inf, and Bordatella
Vaccination: Leptospira..spirochaete bacteria: Infects humans and 2.5% healthy dogs:AVJ Zwijnenberg RJG et al 2008 vol 86 p317 22 serotypes , mixed infections Survival: water or fluids, moderate temperatures around 25 C (77 degrees F) and neutral or slightly alkaline pH. eg Stagnant water or slowly flowing streams , flooded conditions. Killed by dry very quickly Yearly vaccination before summer
Urine-soaked soil six months
Milk from infected dairy cows
Simple Puppy Vaccination RegimePuppy: Choice 10 and 14 weeks C318 weeks Kennel cough: Parainfluenza and Bordatella 22 weeks Parainfluenza ( Novotec Vaccine , no Hepatitis)Never under 6 weeksAT Risk: transport, leaving home early6weeks C3, 10 weeks C4 plus Bordatella 14 weeksC4 plus Bordatella8 weeks C3 12 weeks C4 plus Bordatella, 16 weeksC4 plus Bordatella: Avoid double dose of hepatitis vaccine
From then OnTitre tests Yearly: These are available for all diseases except para influenza and bordatella. If the titre test is low, parvo particularly can be of concern, boost the immune system herbally/ homeopathically and retest, or vaccinate if there is an imminent risk. Any hepatitis or distemper titre means the animal is immune.Costs approximately: Consulting fee: $44 Taking blood: $40Lab accession fee covers all blood sent at the one time: $40 Cost of titre test: approx $50 per disease
LeptospirosisPuppies at risk only first vaccine 16 weeks then two more 3 weeks apart. This vaccine can have both liver and kidney side effects. Do not give with other vaccines. Greater risk than kennel cough if there is a big contamination.thenTwice yearly vaccination with the correct vaccine for the type of leptospirosis in your area, ask your vet. Titre test first.Cold and dry kill this organism. Dry out all rat affected areas if possible.Or 1 month before the beginning of the rainy season, if there is a defined dry season.
Corona VirusOnly at risk intensive situations where there is a build up of fecal contamination and a hisory of debilitating diarrhoa in puppies.This is not commonIf it is occurring it is a sign of inadequate immune systems.This vaccine should not be given within 2 weeks of other vaccines. It is not needed in healthy adults, and Will not stop the cause if there is an immune system problem.
TetanusOnly to dogs under 6 months when very high risk, hunting, pig baiting with horsesVaccine dose 6 months, then a month later sub cut, then in 12 months then every 5 years.However not recommended as horse based protein, and can cause reactions when given other horse based serum eg tick and snake antivenine,Dogs have generally high resistance to tetanusTitre test before vaccinating even if at risk.
