Rabies Vaccination Can Cause Rabies Symptoms In Dogs
What is rabies vaccinosis?
It’s the mental, emotional and physical symptoms that result from rabies vaccination.
Many of Dr Dym’s patients are suffering from chronic conditions that started after they received their rabies vaccination.
What’s even more alarming is that, in some cases, rabies vaccinosis can be inherited.
This means puppies who haven’t been vaccinated are showing vaccinosis symptoms, which have been passed down from their parents.
Rabies vaccinosis cases can be very challenging, as the symptoms run very deep.
Rabies vaccinosis symptoms can include chronic mental, emotional or neurological issues that are very hard to treat.
Why Does It Happen?
If your dog were to get rabies, it would attack his brain and cause the Old Yeller symptoms we know so well.
The rabies vaccine, because it contains a small amount of rabies virus, can cause the exact same symptoms …
… but on a smaller scale.
After rabies vaccination, your dog may suffer from low-grade brain inflammation. This is why many rabies vaccinosis symptoms are not just physical, but mental and emotional as well.
Dr. Dodds and other members of the veterinary and pet owner communities who don’t want to be required by law to vaccinate dogs earlier than they really need it were very concerned about the bill.
Who Is Behind the Legislation – and Why?
I asked Dr. Dodds how the idea for the bill even came about – was it being pushed by California veterinarians? Dr. Dodds replied that it’s a rather curious situation, because in fact, most California veterinarians aren’t aware of a need, nor do they believe there’s a need to move up the timing of a puppy’s first rabies vaccination. (But Dr. Dodds did find it a bit disconcerting that the DVM who heads the California Veterinary Medical Board said in 30 years of practice he’s never seen an adverse reaction to a rabies vaccine. She found that quite astounding.)
The idea for the legislation seems to have originated with the acting director of the public health group in L.A. County, Dr. Karen Ehnert, a veterinarian. Apparently there’s been some concern about the increase in cases of bat rabies in the county, but according to Dr. Dodds, the numbers don’t add up.
Dr. Ehnert has stated there were 4.5 times as many cases of bat rabies as normal, when the number is actually only 2.5 times more. Regardless, as Dr. Dodds makes clear, there have been no cases of dog rabies in the Los Angeles area since 2010. Further, there were only three cases of dog rabies in all of California from 2007 to 2010, and some of those involved animals that came in from out of state.
