Treatment of Vaccinosis
The diagnosis of vaccinosis is an exclusionary one — i.e. nothing will be found upon other testing to explain the symptoms. The animal is given the oral homeopathics, Thuja (for all vaccines other than rabies),
and Lyssin to detox the rabies “miasm”. IF there are no holistic veterinarians in the area, these homeopathics can be obtained from NaturalRearing.com
Our therapy typically uses steroids in tapering doses over 4-6 weeks to stop the inflammatory process and clinical symptoms. Therapy begins with an injection of dexamethasone phosphate first, and if the animal improves right away, is continued with prednisone at 0.5 mg per pound twice daily for 5-7 days, then tapered gradually over the next month to every other day
. The use of steroids will cause an increase in water intake and urination, but the animal should be able to handle the drug at these tapering doses for a few weeks. IF a holistic veterinarian wants to try an alternative therapy to steroids, this approach can also work. Try it for several days to see if it will work.
We advise that these patients receive no further vaccine boosters, except for rabies, where exemption can be sought on a case-by-case basis but may not be granted in the specific locale.
In black bold is something you can try to to detox the vax.
In Blue bold is what your vet SHOULD have done to begin with as these symptoms were acute (within 24hrs) of vax.
Your vet then should have marked your file, noted the batch number of the vax., contacted the manufacturer to find out the treatment protocol for a reaction and then requested compensation for treatment on your behalf. YOU have to enforce this with your vet.
Now the abx. w/a possible bacterial infection likely from lepto or the needle itself - Still should NOT be your problem - but proove it. In the interim, your puppies immune system is taking a beating along w/the abx. and what it is doing to the gut (hence watery poop), this is cycling the ill health as 60-80% of the immune systems health is based on the gut - what goes in, what gets absorbed and what gets utilized....good bacteria help w/the breakdown and uptake of nutrients - the abx. will kill off the probiotic.
I gave you some supplimental suggestions especially SeaCure - You have to boost the immune system so it can get to work on the illness so you can reduce the toxic load on your pup (more meds = more toxic load, weaker immune system=more meds.)
Reinhardt then recommends three supplements that she considers crucial for rapid healing and recovery: Seacure, probiotics, and digestive enzymes.
Seacure, described in “Securing Seacure” (April 2003) and “Accelerated Wound Healing” (August 2006), is a very fishy smelling powder made from fermented deep sea white fish. Because the fermentation process predigests the fish and breaks it into amino acids and peptides, which the body uses as building blocks to repair damaged tissue and speed healing, it requires no digestive effort and is assimilated on contact.
“I started taking Seacure seriously,” says Reinhardt, “when I gave it to some cats who were dying. They literally responded within 15 minutes. Their eyes went from dull to sparkling in that short a time. Since then, I’ve seen the same response again and again, including seriously ill and unresponsive dogs who sat up, began grooming themselves, wagged their tails, interacted with their owners, and took an interest in their surroundings, all within 15 minutes. I’m not saying that they all get well, but when any pet in dire straits responds dramatically, it’s wonderful.”
