- The practice of medicine is a continuously evolving entity of new knowledge and technology. Keeping abreast of the latest information requires a passionate commitment to continuing education. With over 100 hours of CE / year at such conferences as Western States Veterinary Conference, North American Veterinary Conference, the AVMA Conference, and Critical Care Society, I keep a ringside seat on cutting edge technology. The emphasis is on safety for your pet as well as protecting your family from transmissible zoonotic diseases with up to date preventative health care .
- With improved vaccines and expanded knowledge about immunology, the way we protect our pets against disease has changed.
- Dr. Rogers and the staff of Critter Fixer Pet Hospital, Inc. offer a protocol utilizing the newest and safest vaccines to provide more effective and safer protection for your pet and family while avoiding unnecessary vaccinations.
- Dogs and cats no longer need to be vaccinated against Distemper, Parvo, and Feline Leukemia every year. Once the initial series of puppy or kitten vaccinations and first annual vaccinations are completed, immunity from MLV vaccines persists for life. It has been shown that cats over one year of age are immune to Feline Leukemia virus whether they have been vaccinated or not. Imagine the money you will save, not to mention less risks from side effects.
- PCR Purevac rabies vaccine, because it is not adjuvanted, will mean less risk of developing injection site fibrosarcoma’s. Risk of immune-mediated hemolytic anemia and allergic reactions are reduced by less frequent use of vaccines as well as by avoiding unnecessary vaccines such as Corona virus, Leptospirosis, and Lyme disease for dogs. The risk of Vaccine Associated Fibrosarcoma’s can be reduced by avoiding adjuvanted vaccines and unnecessary vaccines like chlamydia for cats, and ineffective vaccines such as and FIP and FIV.
- Intranasal vaccines for Rhino tracheitis and Calici virus,( two upper respiratory viruses of cats) when used following parenteral vaccines may provide a more complete protection than injectable vaccines alone, with less risk of serious reactions.
- I think you will agree that no medications should be given more frequently, at a higher dose or for a longer period of time than is necessary to treat or prevent disease, without side effects. Vaccines should be treated the same way.
- The AAHA , the AVMA Council on Biologic & Therapeutic Agents , the American Association of Feline Practitioners as well as immunologists and clinicians at 22 Veterinary Schools in North America are our biggest endorsement that new protocols are badly needed.
