What Service Does your Dog Need during the Wellness Exam?

  2. A heartworm/lyme test. Most vets perform a 3DX or 4DX snap test to determine is your dog has a tick- or mosquito-borne disease. The 4DX test is to test for Heartworm disease, Lyme disease and Ehrlichiosis/Anaplasmosis freestyle libre software herunterladen.
  3. A blood test such as CBC for a basic chemical profile. This is especially helpful if your dog is a senior or if you suspect any underlying health issues muse herunterladen.
  4. C6 test (if your dog tests positive for Lyme disease, you will want to know specifics on what the dog’s antibody levels are and this serves as a baseline for you to determine if treatment was effective or not) download trello files. More below:

This test is called a Quantitative C6 and takes about 1 week for results. It actually quantifies the antibody level, or gives a specific number of antibodies bau simulator 2015 dlc kostenlos downloaden. Based on this, we can determine if treatment is recommended. The Quantitative C6 also gives us a baseline for future monitoring, allowing us to determine if treatment was effective, or if it needs to be performed or redone in the future Download itunes for free windows 7.

The key point about this C6 quantitative test is that the level correlates with the level of circulating antigen-antibody complexes, which are the components thought to cause the dog significant pathology, such as life-threatening kidney disease openatv. The C6 test is about $115.

  1. We also recommend a urine test to check for protein in the urine. This includes a full urinalysis and quantitative protein check if necessary unicode herunterladen.

If you’re worried about lyme disease, see the articles on Lyme Disease in this blog.

Before allowing your vet to administer any vaccines, be sure to read the other blogs on this Web site. Certain vaccines have adverse side effects that you may not see for a few months, but vets only consider it an adverse reaction if it happens within a day or so. My advice is to avoid bordetella, lyme, and lepto vaccines in general as all can lead to chronic disease.

Dr. Dodds Minimal Vaccine Protocol

Dr. Jean Dodds, Veterinarian and Vaccine Researcher, developed a protocol that has been adopted by all 27 Vet teaching universities. Sadly, not all veterinarians have caught on because a large portion of their income is generated by vaccinations Download gta for free pc. We can’t stress this enough, you have to be your pet’s advocate when taking your dog or cat for a wellness visit. It’s hard to believe, but most Veterinarians these days will pressure you into extra vaccines that are actually harmful to your pet amazon prime musiken pc. Fear tactics are the norm, yet this fear-based medicine has no scientific validity whatsoever!  It is strongly recommended that you do your homework first as many vaccines can actually be detrimental to your pet’s health monopoly app free download.

Lyme Preventive and Maintenance Using the Homeopathic Nosode Borrelia Burgdorferi

Borrelia burgdorferi 30c is the homeopathic nosode (derived from the tick spirochete) that  you can administer if your dog has either never been exposed to  lyme or after treating for lyme and is on maintenance deutsche filme kostenlos herunterladen. Note the potency is 30c and not 200c as is directed for lyme treatment. Directions for the Lyme (borrelia burgdorferi) Nosodes:

The lyme nosode works on the principle of a vaccine in that it exposes the dog to a tiny dose of the lyme spirochete download rust for free. It is diluted down so that it does not have side effects and does not contain any of the material of the spirochete. Please read more on the concept below download firefox — free web browser — mozilla.

Mixing instructions for dry pellets: To mix the remedy from pellet form: Tap 1 or 2 homeopathic lyme nosode (Borrelia Borgdorferi 30c) pellets into a bottle containing 4 oz amazonen serie. of purified or distilled water. Let the pellets dissolve for about 5 minutes, then shake vigorously and give the bottle a couple of thwacks on your open hand windows 10 update 1803. Give 1 dose (1/2 tsp or whatever you can draw up on an eyedropper, if you’re using an eyedropper) directly onto the tip of dog’s tongue (do not mix with food) fehler beim herunterladen der zeichenfolgen der leistungsindikatoren für dienst wmiaprpl.  Do not give food 10 minutes before or after giving a homeopathic remedy.

Dosing schedule: Give one dose each day for 3 days in a row, wait a week, then give once a week for a month tar.gz herunterladen. Then once a month during tick season.   The mixture will last about 3 weeks in the fridge and then you must clean the bottle (run through dishwasher) and prepare a new mixture video from tik tok.

The nosode is gentle enough not to have side effects and is widely known for its effectiveness. Here’s an excerpt from George MacLeod, DVM a well-known homeopathic vet from Great Britain, from his book Dog Homeopathic Remedies:

 There is a fundamental difference between conventional vaccination by injection and that using the oral route Tiptoi audiobooks for free. The former involves the subcutaneous or intramuscular injection of an antigen (vaccine material) which after an interval produces antibodies in the bloodstream against the particular antigen g data antivirus kostenlos downloaden. While in most cases by this method a degree of protection against the particular disease is established, the procedure can be criticized on two grounds: 1, The defense system of the body is not fully incorporated by this means and 2, there is a risk of side effects due to the foreign nature of the protein involved in the vaccine material. This aspect of conventional vaccination has been well-documented in many species.

 Oral vaccination on the other hand gives a more solid immunity inasmuch as it incorporates the entire defense system, which is mobilized as soon as the vaccine is taken into the mouth and builds up protection with each further dose. This build-up leads on from the tonsillar tissue through the lymphatics incorporating the entire reticulo-endothelial system. This procedure is equivalent to what is known as “street infection” viz. ingestion of virus etc. during daily contact with other animals, when immunity would be built up in the same way.


A good example of the success of homeopathic nosodes was demonstrated during a lepto outbreak in Cuba recently after a hurricane swept through the country and they were in short supply of the lepto vaccine. Nosodes were instrumental in eliminating lepto. For more information, see It is a good article on the effectiveness of homeopathy versus traditional vaccination on more than 2.5 million people.
