Veterinarians who conducted a study at Purdue University to determine whether vaccines can cause changes in a dog's immune system leading to immune-mediated disease have refuted the recent report on their findings by Catherine O'Driscoll, founder of Canine Health Concern and a long-time advocate for reforms in dog and cat vaccination protocols.

In an article of mine carried on this blog (see the Purdue Study), I outlined the implications of vaccinated dogs in a Purdue study developing autoantibodies to their own biochemicals.  Specifically, the Purdue team found autoantibodies to fibronectin, laminin, DNA, albumin, cytochrome C, cardiolipin and collagen.  My research methodology was straightforward.  I searched the internet for scientific references to autoantibodies in relation to each of these biochemicals.  Anyone can do this: simply type in “autoantibodies to fibronectin” … “autoantibodies to laminin” …, etc.When I originally wrote-up my findings, I sent them via email to Larry Glickman, who led the Purdue which that found these autoantibodies, and asked him to comment.  His response was startling.  Although he didn’t address the science of my findings, he did appear to be hot under the collar about dog owners who choose not to vaccinate their dogs.  Having asked Dr Glickman to comment on the implication of these autoantibodies, I remained none the wiser with regard to his thoughts.Because my article has seemingly gone viral on the internet recently, there have been some positive and some negative responses.  Strangely enough, negative comments are well worth having, because it means I can address them.  Why do I do this?  Because I care about the dogs and want to ensure that we are doing the best we can for them.
Suffice to say, she is unapologetic about her conclusions and introduces more damning evidence that the vaccines that are used on companion animals are far from benign.

Have a read.
