you guys have to understand, im NOT AGAINST VACCINATING, im against OVER VACCINATING. Ive seen parvo and distemper in dogs, and they are completely horrible, hence why I am vaccinating Tuco, but over vaccinating him as an adult doesnt make sense, especially considering how much less adults are prone to those diseases
here are a few sources that i got my info from, a lot of them fairly reputable
understand I think that there needs to be a lot more research done, but there have been a few studies done, not only by anti vaccine fanatics, and mostly with the rabies and distemper vaccines, and they seem to be pointing at immunity lasting 6+ years, and it is also known that the vaccines cause long term, mild inflammatory effects that increase as the vaccines do, which in other animals and humans have been linked to decrease auto immune function and increased mitotic defects, leading to tumors.
