Unknown from cat owners and rescue workers, misdiagnosed by vetenarians, vaccinosis can be deadly to a cat within a couple of weeks from its vaccine shot.
It has been known for a while that bad batches of vaccines circulate in clinics and pharmaceutical companies deny that fact. That a cat could be more fragile to such invasion of his immune system is also a fact: specially kittens, juveniles and orange male cats.
There has never been any scientific research done on the subject but we, as rescuers certainly know the consequences on rescue cats: it dies in painful agony. The same cat we wanted to save is killed by a vaccine meant to protect it against further diseases.
That is exactly what happened to our Rusty whose story was told earlier. That cat asked for our help and in order to find him a good home, we had him vaccinated. Two weeks later he was dead. I should have spotted the symptoms: prostration, lack of will to live, he stopped eating altogether and even the taste of food in his mouth produced such pain that he kept avoiding it.
The vet we consulted who is very well aware of the problems with rescued cats, could not understand the situation and simply said “he does not want to live anymore”. He saw no physical problem but I finally got it that it was an intoxication from the vaccine.
Like I said, it is my fault that cat died. I should have been more aware of the possibility since a remedy is available in our part of the country for such intoxication. I learned of this remedy on a discussion list from UK where the girls had access to homeopathy on a daily basis. Not every vet or doctor believe in homeopathy and sometimes are not even aware of these easy solutions to identified diagnosis.
This miracle remedy is THUJA. A few granules directly in the mouth of the cat as prevention after the cat is vaccinated is a simple task that can be done by any rescuer provided that she knows of the risk of today’s vaccines.
No need to say that the administration of thuja granules is now a protocole at our shelter after a vaccine or an anesthesia. We do not take any more risk on the life of our rescued babies. Not everyone believes in homeopathic remedies but we do.
Even if a vaccine can and should protect against a deadly disease, it is a risky procedure and the vets do not admit it. Even though there is a warning on every vaccine bottle that a sick animal should never be vaccinated, we know of vetenarians who still do.
