Default Rabies vaccination

I lost a dog last year (had to put him to sleep due to building up aggression) who showed all the sign of rabies vaccinosis, caused by the rabies vaccinations over his life time. He was 8 years old
I am now worried to have to "poison" my new pup with this vaccination.
For those of you who use homeopathics /natural health care: is there a way I can prepare his body for this vaccination? He is 6 months old and due for this now.

You have every right to fear...however there are homeopathics you can use...as well consider nourishing the brain as in neurological pathways...coconut (raw organic cold pressed) oil is one, foods high in B vitamin group especially B-12 (meats), antioxidant rich foods.

Here is a link you can read, at the bottom it provides links

Whenever possible, vaccinate under the supervision of a holistic vet trained in homeopathy. At least, give the homeopathic remedy Thuja (Thuya) when vaccinating with most vaccines. Use Lyssin for the rabies vaccine. If your vet isnít skilled in homeopathy, you can get instructions and remedies at naturalrearing.com. (note: I tried to search this site, but have limited time didn't find out if this was a before or after treatment)

Just do the required vaccinating, then titers after.

Sorry about your previous dog, but thank you for posting this information. I had never heard of this happening. One time while I was at the vet, a couple were in due to their chihuahua having a bad reaction to an ingredient in the rabies vaccination. I forget what happened , but they had quite a scare, the dog did recover.

You can do that for the other vaccines but how do you get around the legal requirement for Rabies?

Some states allow just the titers for rabies. Mine is not one of them, maybe Oregon is?

Vaccine is not 'live,' and cannot cause rabies.

Did you have an autopsy on your dog?

If not, you should not assume it was rabies. Rabies cannot be diagnosed without autopsy.

she did not say the dog died from rabies , but from complications on the liver either causal or co-related to the vaccination.

I recently got some emails from a member of a dog-liver forum , with excerpts from Jean Dodds about a case where a dog died from liver failure -- briefly the reaction slowed digestion , bacteria back up compromised the liver and the dog died. This is a real simplified account , bullet pointing the salient points only.

this is a real hot-buttom issue
