PET VACCINATION ...An Institutionalised Crime

Pet owners should be aware that vaccines compromise the health of their cherished pets, causing serious side-effects including allergies, arthritis, behavioural problems, cancer, paralysis and, at worst, death.

A team at Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine conducted several studies 1,2 to determine if vaccines can cause changes in the immune system of dogs that might lead to life-threatening immune-mediated diseases.

The vaccinated Purdue dogs also developed autoantibodies to laminin, which is involved in many cellular activities including the adhesion, spreading, differentiation, proliferation and movement of cells. Vaccines thus appear to be capable of removing the natural intelligence of cells.

Autoantibodies to cardiolipin are frequently found in patients with the serious disease systemic lupus erythematosus and also in individuals with other autoimmune diseases. The presence of elevated anti-cardiolipin antibodies is significantly associated with clots within the heart or blood vessels, in poor blood clotting, haemorrhage, bleeding into the skin, foetal loss and neurological conditions.

The Purdue studies also found that vaccinated dogs were developing autoantibodies to their own collagen. About one quarter of all the protein in the body is collagen. Collagen provides struc­ture to our bodies, protecting and supporting the softer tissues and connecting them with the skeleton. It is no wonder that Canine Health Concern's 1997 study of 4,000 dogs showed a high number of dogs developing mobility problems shortly after they were vaccinated (noted in my 1997 book, What Vets Don't Tell You About Vaccines).

Perhaps most worryingly, the Purdue studies found that the vaccinated dogs had developed autoantibodies to their own DNA. Did the alarm bells sound? Did the scientific community call a halt to the vaccination program? No. Instead, they stuck their fingers in the air, saying more research is needed to ascertain whether vaccines can cause genetic damage. Meanwhile, the study dogs were found good homes, but no long-term follow-up has been conducted.

Boston Terrier Goes Best In Show!!!

BISS CH T-Bo's Only Time Will Tell ROM Won the much coveted Best In Show Title this last weekend! This is quite an accomplishment for any breed of dog but Boston Terriers, as popular as they are, very often are over looked in the groups at Dog Shows.

CH T-Bo's Only Time Will Tell, better known as "Kiwi", is a special girl, one whom loves to show…she was born Jan. 2, 2002 and started her show career off with a bang taking BOB over top specials at 6 ½ months. Kiwi finished as a puppy and got her first Best In Specialty at 10 months old. Before hitting the show ring as a special she had a litter of 7 puppies and 5 of the 7 are now champions giving Kiwi her ROM from her first litter. Kiwi has been out the past 2 years as a Special and to date she is Ranked # 1 Boston Terrier and #1 Boston Terrier All Breed Non-Sporting according to AKC Stats. Kiwi has 2 Best In Specialty Wins “2005” and a total of 47 Group placements this year to date along with her recent Best In Show she earned at Waco, Tx. on 11/26/05 under Judge Robert Moore.

Kiwi is owned and loved by Jim and Teresa Hendrix, Stephanie Krewson, and Jackie Breazeale and lets not forget Bekka Ebarb. Jackie and Kiwi are the dream team. Watch for Kiwi’s son in “2006”.

Do NOT Feed Greenies To Your Boston Terrier (or Frenchie, Doberman, etc.)

We all love our Bostons and want to spoil them and take good care of them, right? We trust our veterinarians to only recommend what is "good" or "healthy" for our pets. Most vets offer a green toothbrush shaped dental treat called "Greenies" in their offices. We just assume that since our Veterinarian recommends it, it must be good, Right??? WRONG, in fact, in may cases, DEAD WRONG.

Many of you already read my other blog, Whole Dog News or have heard online or even on the local news that Greenies are NOT a "smart" treat at all!

I have lots of stories and information at the Whole Dog News Blog but, I wanted to share this recent news story with you today. Here is the link to KROI TV's story " Dog Treat May Carry Danger" A video clip of the show that aired is available to watch there as well.

If you want to give your Bostons a "smart" treat, give them an all natural, raw (yes I said raw!) marrow or knuckle bone that will not splinter, break off in chunks, cause blockages and guess what? It is 100% digestible! :-)

Why Boston Terriers Rock.....

Let me start out by saying that Boston Terriers are very special dogs that can do very special things. They are highly intelligent and learn quickly. They do very well in Obedience, Agility, Flyball, Therapy work and even Weight pulling! Most of all they excel at being your "best friend" Boston Terriers tend to be active dogs that love to play. They require and thrive on attention, going everywhere with you, being your shadow and constant companion. These wonderful dogs have become very popular and because they are so "cute", many people have run out to buy them before doing their homework, so to speak. There are quite a few Boston Terriers being bred without regard to their health or temperament so please do your YOUR homework and research out this fantastic breed and make sure it is the right breed for you.

Please, buy ONLY from a reputable breeder that has health clearances on their dogs and is willing to stand behind that puppy's health and welfare for the rest of it's life. Learn how to find a "reputable breeder" by Clicking Here
