Veterinarian Criticizes Questionable Vaccination Protocol

Natural Rearing publishes a report by a holistic veterinarian that supports the over-use of rabies vaccine to control pet populations in local communities. It's a highly controversial article in that the critique of veterinary practice comes from a practicing veterinarian.

Have a look.

Rabies Vaccination - The Big Scam
By: Dr. John Fudens, D.V.M.

I would like to give you, the reader, the truth about the so called required vaccinations, particularly rabies. There are two basic forms of law. One is the legal Constitutional and Common law that this country was founded on, and the other is "colorable" law passed by Administrative agencies/bureaucrats who have been given so called authority to pass laws. Black's Law Dictionary 5th Edition defines colorable law as "That which is in appearance only, and not in reality, what purports to be, hence counterfeit, feigned, having the appearance of truth." Yes, I study the law, am a paralegal, and have an extensive law library.

So any and all mandatory rabies vaccination programs are colorable law, in that they have been passed and mandated upon the pet owning public by certain vested interest groups. Who are these groups? First and foremost are veterinarians, in general, and veterinarian medical organizations. Second are the local animal control personnel, bureaucrats and politicians. What are their reasons? GREED, POWER AND CONTROL. Both these large powerful interest groups stand to benefit greatly by having rabies mandated by colorable law.

Veterinarians receive a large percentage of both their gross income and profit from vaccines given in the office. On average vaccines cost 60 to 95 cents per dose and are charged to the client at $15 to $25 per injection and substantially more in the large cities. Therefore, if veterinarians lobby to havea colorable law passed to give rabies vaccine every year that enhances their
financial picture.

The rabies vaccine, required by law here in PA, just killed my healthy 6 year old cat Cleo. Seizures to death in 2 1/2 days. Heartbroken and angry, I did not want to take this strictly indoors cat in for fiance insisted because of the stupid law. Now she's gone and I could have stopped it.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I know my reassurances are inadequate at this time; however, let me say that all of us on this mission to reform outdated rabies laws have experienced your pain and guilt.

My 12 year old kitty was fat and happy when I took her for a rabies booster. Because we recently moved to a home where she had greater proximity to wildlife and spent a little time outside, I thought I was protecting her. She had no history of adverse reactions as far as I knew. 18 months later she was dying from renal failure brought on by rabies vaccine.

We can live with the guilt and kick ourselves. Or we can use the experience to create awareness of the dangers of over-vaccination so that other kitties can live and other devoted pet owners can learn from it.
