Default Worried about Rabies vaccination

It is time for the first Rabies vaccination. What are the homeopathic preparations I can/should do?
Please let me know the names of herbal supplements, dosages, times a day and for how long before or after the vaccination.
I am worried about it due to bad experiences with my old dog, had that posted in another thread.
My vet has the mercury free vaccine, thank goodness.

Maybe consider a 3 year so you don't have to worry for the next couple years?? It has only a small amount more in it then the one year per my vet.

Part were in the original thread. Somehow the PM to Momto2GSAD's didn't work.
I need to know the dosages / strengths of the Thuja and Llysine(?). I am sorry if it was overlooked.

Thuja is indicated for the other vax's...lyssine for rabies, but not necessarily the only remedy available but will not hurt.

Many links, w/ sub links to go to were provided

I know you're stressed...delay as long as you can...tell vet he's sick and cannot take at this time...no law says you have to take dog to vet for diarrhea...support immune system prior and after...I found a dosing link as w/all the other links everything tells you what you should do, but not how. Keep in mind w/homeopathy there is no real specific...you can't go wrong if you use one pellet or 5. Research signs of reaction so you are prepared "in Case"...\one link suggested goin early in week (to offset ER costs on a weekend), early in the day, and to stay an hour or so after vax....bbring a book w/you support good health thereafter, antioxidants, Vit. C. certain amino acids, bind and remove heavy metals...it's good the Vet "says" doesn't contain mercury, but doesn't say mercury, it's called Thimerosal...ask to see the product label ingredients, as well, the lot # and manufacturer...write it down in case of reaction...then you're vet will know your no shlep either!

Also, there is no diff. between a 1 yr. and 3 yr. dose except maybe more adjuvant...the same amount of antibody is administered to a chihauha as is a great dane. the only diff. is the labelling....once the immune system takes a footprint of an antibody, then it doesn't mean more will make it last longer or be stronger

There is no difference between 1-3yr. vaccines.

The 1st year they get a vaccine - at 4mos. - it is a "1yr." meaning they need to boost it in another year.
After that it's good for 3yrs.
The same vaccine is used.

It's the dog's immunity which changes, not the vaccine.

Gosh I'm amazed at the widely held yet erroneous belief that there is a difference between vaccines! Wonder if vets can charge more by being deceptive...???

Community Practice Vaccination Protocols from the College of Veterinary Medicine

The site above explains how rabies is given - notice it doesn't say "use the 3yr. vs. 1yr. vaccine!"

I didn't see your message. I have only one: the welcoming to the forum message.

Yes, I am stressed about this whole thing because last year I had to put down a formerly very sweet dog (GSD X Lab X Rott X Pit) whose hero I was for 8 years. He was born in my hands and died in my hands. He trusted me completely and went beyond his own judgment if I told him it was OK and he could do it. He developed rabies symptoms like I said before from all these ^%$*#^'n shots. He had become very dangerous, even to me. It feels like I poisoned him, while I was the one he trusted for 200%.
That might be the reason I have overlooked some of the info you guys have sent me so graciously. Sorry.

I do think he needs to get his Rabies shot as we have rabid bats in our area. He himself also needs to be protected. The problem is once you have given him the first one, you are on the radar of AC as the vets send their records to AC.

Vets don't send their records to animal control...why do you think that??

The only time a dog would be on a/c "radar" is if there's a bite.
And often, for licensing with municipalities, you need a current rabies cert.

Our vet does. I am a trainer and cannot afford any "grey" practices,
like vaccinating him in another state and not licensing him.
