blackjack21 just went thru this with her dog on New Year's Eve: Quote: "His joint swelling did turn out as a side effect of the vaccine,
he got Parvo, Lepto, and distemper. He got a auto-immune poly arthritis where his immune system overreacted to the vaccine and hought that the good cells where bad cells thus the swelling. The lethargy and loss of appetite could be related to this aswell. Thankfully I didnt get the anemic side effect." Vet calls a it strange case with discovery of a series of other problems
PLEEZE report this! The veterinary world NEEDS to know these things to save dogs and their owners the possible side effects, the pain and the expense!

Canine Vaccination Protocol by Dr. Jean Dodds – Vaccination Researcher:
YOU choose whether or not the vet gives it.
9 - 10 Weeks Old:
Distemper + Parvovirus, MLV (e.g. Intervet Progard Puppy DPV, now renamed Nobivac DPV, when Merck and Intervet merged)
14 Weeks Old: Same as above
16 - 18 Weeks Old (optional):
Same as above (optional)
20 weeks or older
, if allowable by law
Rabies - 1 Year Old:
Distemper + Parvovirus,MLV (optional = titer)
1+ Years Old:
Rabies, killed 3-year product (give 3-4 weeks apart from distemper/parvovirus booster)
Perform vaccine antibody titers for distemper and parvovirus every three years thereafter, or more often, if desired. Vaccinate for rabies virus according to the law, except where circumstances indicate that a written waiver needs to be obtained from the primary care veterinarian. (you can get a rabies waiver)
In that case, a rabies antibody titer can also be performed to accompany the waiver request. See Rabies Challenge Fund

Your baby should be detoxed and no more shots until this is totally resolved, since your dog is already showing reaction! This could effect him for many years or his life! Have your vet titer him to make sure he is carrying the antibodies. He should only have ONE type of vaccination at a time IF
he even needs one again in his lifetime! My dogs had only ONE parvo and ONE distemper when they were pups (agreed on with my holistic vet)....they are now 5 & 7 years old and their titer still shows total coverage!
Feel free to pm me if you want information on detoxing.
I really hope he feels better soon.
