Are you over-vaccinating your pet? Would you know if you were? Do you know about the possible vaccine reactions of every shot? Do you know how long each vaccine's immunity lasts? Spend a day to learn the truth about vaccinating in 2010.

Take this rare opportunity to learn what two of the world's most respected and unbiased experts can teach you. Drs. Dodds and Schultz are volunteering their time to this seminar. 

  • Dr. Ron Schultz will speak on "What Every Pet Owner Should Know About Vaccines and Vaccination Programs."   Dr. Schultz was the US Representative of the World Small Animal Veterinary Association Vaccination Guidelines Group and Board Member of the 2003 and 2006 American Animal Hospital Association Canine Vaccine Task Forces and the AAFP Feline Vaccine Task Force.  Click to learn more.

  • Dr. Jean Dodds will speak about adverse vaccine reactions, titer testing, blood tests for wellness, homeopathy to help make vaccinating safer, and more.  Dr. Dodds, a former AHVMA Holistic Veterinarian of the Year, consults nationally and internationally on hematology, immunology, endocrinology, nutrition and holistic medicine.

  • Both speakers will answer questions periodically and at a roundtable Q & A session Find answers to questions like: Should I give my dog the new Dog Flu shot? How often do I need to do a titer test? How soon should I vaccinate my new puppy?

  • Handouts detailing topics will be provided to participants.

* All proceeds benefit the Rabies Challenge Fund (a federally registered 501(c)(3) corporation). This all-volunteer group of scientists is working to:

•  prove long-lasting immunity from the rabies vaccine with the goal of increasing the period between rabies shots from 3 years to 5, then 7;
•  establish a blood “titer standard” to provide a scientific basis to avoid unnecessary rabies boosters;
•  in Phase Two, study vaccine additives (like aluminum, mercury and fetal calf tissue) used in veterinary vaccines and establish a much needed federal adverse reaction reporting system for rabies and other vaccines.

The rabies vaccine can cause autoimmune disease, skin and digestive problems, injection-site tumors, seizures, behavior changes and other adverse reactions.
 The Rabies Challenge Fund is completely funded by donations from concerned pet owners like you. Countless dog groups have donated to the Fund. Watch our video about rabies vaccine dangers.
