BE INFORMED ABOUT VACCINE
After using many different manufactures of vaccine. We have decided it best to not vaccinate the kittens unless they are going into a home where there has been Panleukopenia in the past, boarding the kitten/cat or showing the kitten/cat. These situations expose the kitten to disease.
Dr. Don Hamilton’s website: http://www.holisticat.com/vaccinations.html article titled “Vaccination for Cats: Helpful or Harmful?” gives a total picture about vaccine and guidelines to help make informed decisions about the need verses the potential long term dangers…… Please read the link above to fully understand vaccinations. Here is part of his article for you to ponder:
Obviously, when we reach the point of making recommendations like these, we are out of control. But do we simply avoid vaccinations in order to avoid all risk? Or is there possibly more risk by not vaccinating? Personally, I am opposed to vaccination in virtually all situations, but I will endeavor to give some guidelines that will assist you in making a balanced decision regarding your feline companions.
There are four criteria that are at the center of any vaccine decision. One should only consider administering a vaccine if all four criteria are met:
Our past experience with vaccine has resulted in the vaccine giving the kittens the disease we are trying to protect them from contracting. Our kittens are isolated from other cats and should have excellent immune systems because we feed grain free, raw meat supplemented with Young Again supplement or 4 Life Transfer Factor Livestock Stress. They live in a sunny clean environment with circulating air that has been exposed to UV light.
