Intranasal Pet Vaccines Are Not Safer.

By Redstone Promotional Communications /

Every April, which is Autism Awareness Month, new stories and studies surface as to the link between vaccines and autism. The FDA and medical profession will go to their graves standing by their declaration that vaccines are safe because they make millions off of them, yet evidence keeps mounting that they are not. Also, the very federal regulatory departments that are telling us they are safe are constantly contradicting themselves on the information they give to the public, they are just hedging that nobody will notice; and most people don't.

For instance, the FDA reported two instances of deaths that occurred through the use of neti pots by consumers who used them to flush out their sinuses and the NIH (National Institute of Health) further investigated these potential risks. You may be thinking that you just time-warped into a completely different article because what do neti pots have to do with vaccines? Stick with us here as we make the connection: one of many we might add, that all lead up to the questionable safety of vaccines and the frequent contradictory information we are being given.

In these two cases of death caused by neti pots, one reported in 2011 was a man and the investigation into his cause of death was determined to be encephalitis (brain inflammation, damage and eventually death) caused by bacteria found in his water which he used in his neti pot. The second reported death was a woman, and it was determined that her death was caused by a bacteria found in her neti pot that also caused encephalitis. Therefore, the cause of death in both cases was bacteria that caused encephalitis (which is usually deadly) introduced into the nasal passages - which are a direct link to the brain - by the neti pots used to pour water up their nose.

People with a compromised immune system should consult a doctor before using a neti pot." FDA warns. "Most important is the source of water that is used with nasal rinsing devices. Tap water that is not filtered, treated, or processed in specific ways is not safe for use as a nasal rinse."

"Some tap water contains low levels of organisms, such as bacteria and protozoa, including amoebas, which may be safe to swallow because stomach acid kills them. But these “bugs” can stay alive in nasal passages and cause potentially serious infections, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

"Improper use of neti pots may have caused two deaths in 2011 in Louisiana from a rare brain infection that the state health department linked to tap water contaminated with an amoeba called Naegleria fowleri," stated a Louisiana newspaper.

Stick with us here. So…the FDA, the medical profession and the NIH all adequately warn and admit that it is dangerous to spray, pour or sniff anything into the sinus cavity because it may cause infection and in severe cases death, especially with individuals that may have compromised immune systems (which is everybody these days with the high levels of toxins in our daily lives causing impaired immune systems).

Now…lets talk about huffing. We all know this is a very dangerous practice that can also lead to death. Why? Because spraying or sniffing anything up your nose directly effects the brain and bypasses the body's natural immune defenses in the stomach and blood-filtering organs such as the kidneys, lymph and liver. This is basic anatomy 101 and does not take a PhD to understand or acquire.

Get where we are going with this yet? All government agencies (FDA, NIH CDC and many others) and the medical profession openly and publicly advise us, and admit that, it is dangerous to spray, inhale, pour, or sniff any chemical substance up your nose. That it can lead to severe illness, brain damage and death. Remember, they admit this. But…the same agencies are telling us that intranasal vaccines are safe? Spraying a vaccine up our nose that has had a bacteria or virus intentionally added to it, and has been mixed with mercury - a chemical proven by studies such as the one at the University of Calgary in which they video documented what happens to an immature brain when it is exposed to mercury - and other toxins (adjuvants) specifically designed to create an immune reaction to that virus or bacteria; that is safe? Come on now. Anybody with a high school education can put all the pieces together and conclude for themselves that any pet or person is at high risk for spraying anything up their noses given all the evidence and reports we just presented, let alone intentionally putting a virus or bacteria from a vaccine up there. Frankly, we can't believe that the FDA thinks the general public is so gullible and stupid. But actually, what the FDA and the medical profession is betting on is that people will not take the time to put two and two together, and thus will never realize that they are feeding us conflicting information all the time, and particularly in the case of food and vaccine safety.

An intranasal vaccine introduces a virus or bacteria directly to the brain just as huffing does, sniffing does, inhaling does and even something as innocent as a neti pot is capable of. Introduce the wrong chemicals and substances to the brain and you have encephalitis, brain damage, coma and death. Dogs are being diagnosed with GME (a canine encephalitis), at increasing numbers since the introduction of intranasal pet vaccines. Our own editor lost a pet due to the intranasal Bordatella vaccine which gave their dog encephalitis leading to a young dog's death. (See Isaac's story for more details.)

The NY State College of Veterinary Medicine, and most veterinary professionals concur, that
canine distemper virus, feline infectious peritonitis virus, rabies virus, parasites, fungi and ticks all have the potential to cause pet encephalitis.

CONCLUSION: When you start connecting all the dots or pieces together, even the average person can conclude that vaccines do indeed cause severe and deadly reactions, brain damage, encephalitis, autism and death. Autism, which is a type of brain damage that has been on the rise, ironically, along with the increase of required vaccines in children, is developing in alarming numbers. Pet encephalitis, adverse vaccine reactions and death has also been increasing in alarming numbers because pets are even more heavily and unnecessarily vaccinated than humans.
Put the pieces together yourself and you will draw the same conclusions many others have: that in today's world, with all the chemicals and toxins in our environment constantly undermining our immune system, adverse and deadly reactions to vaccines will continue to rise. Our government and medical profession does not want the pubic to know this because vaccines are a multi-billion dollar money maker for them. They will support their money-maker by telling us that vaccines are necessary to prevent deadly diseases, and many years ago, that may have been true, but now and in the future, they are going to be a leading killer if the FDA and medical profession does not conduct more thorough research in order to find a solution for the fact that an increasing volume of the public and pets no longer have the proper immune system function to handle vaccines. Parents are taking enormous risks with their children, pet owners as well, and anyone in today's world of compromised immunity is playing Russian Roulette every time they get a vaccine.

Draw your own conclusions and do what you feel is right for you. We just want people to know that vaccines have and due kill people and pets, and that the chances of this happening are increasing due to the increase of compromised immune systems in humans and pets. Too many people are finding this out the hard way. Having any type of immune disorder or even just food allergies or anything that is already putting stress on your immune system or your pets can put you at high risk for having an adverse reaction to vaccines.

Many veterinarians like to push intranasal vaccines because they are so much easier for them to administer than giving a pet a shot, but as with everything else in our world, proper and thorough research has not been conducted as to the risks and potential problems with intranasal vaccines. In fact, it has been suggested by many people that the veterinary profession and pet industry are using our pets as guinea pigs to experiment nasal vaccines on without disclosing this is what they are doing. Some have even drawn the conclusion that the FDA is allowing the veterinary profession to test intranasal vaccines on pets before they use them extensively on people. This way they get free test subjects without having to pay for them. In any case, intranasal vaccination poses a whole new threat to the health of our pets, and if it continues to go unreported in most pet cases, they will start using them on more people who will learn the hard way that intranasal may be more convenient, but it is not safer. They are already testing intranasal vaccination on humans with the flu vaccine. I for one, do not want any virus shot up my nose that can have the potential to infect my brain causing seizures, coma, paralysis, blindness or death.

National Mill Dog Rescue.


National Mill Dog Rescue was established in February 2007, in honor of a forgiving little Italian Greyhound named Lily. Theresa Strader, NMDR’s Founder and Executive Director, rescued Lily from a dog auction in Missouri. Prior to that day, Lily had spent the first seven years of her life as a commercial breeding dog, a puppy mill mom. Determined that her years of living in misery would not be in vain, Strader started NMDR, giving a voice to mill dogs across the country.
During her years as a breeding dog, Lily spent all of her days confined to a small, cold wire cage in a dark, foul-smelling barn. Never was she removed from her cage for exercise or socialization. In her dreary confines, Lily was forced to produce one litter after another with no respite. Like all commercial breeding dogs, she was a veritable breeding machine whose worth was measured in only one way – her ability to produce puppies.
By seven years of age, Lily was worn out. Commonplace in the industry, she had received little to no veterinary care throughout her life, the result of which, for her, was terribly disturbing. Due to years of no dental care, poor quality food, rabbit bottle watering and no appropriate chew toys, the roof of Lily’s mouth and lower jaw, had rotted away. Her chest was riddled with mammary tumors and she was absolutely terrified of people.
Theresa brought Lily and twelve others home from the auction and declares that even for a highly seasoned rescuer, the following months were the education of a lifetime in rehabilitation. That she would take up the cause for the mill dogs was never in question and National Mill Dog Rescue was promptly underway.

National Mill Dog Rescue pledged to put an end to the cruelty of the commercial dog breeding industry, more commonly known as puppy milling. Through rescue and education, NMDR continues in its life-saving work while enlightening the public about the truth of pet store puppies. NMDR has taken a national approach to their rescue and adoption efforts and they have rescued and placed more than 8,700 mill dogs since their inception in 2007. These dogs are now living as cherished family members across the United States. For more information, see their website. 8,849 dogs saved and counting.

Theresa Strader, founder of National Mill Dog Rescue, located near Colorado Springs, CO was honored to receive the ASPCA® Henry Bergh award at the Humane Awards luncheon in New York City this month.

"What a tremendous honor for National Mill Dog Rescue to be so meaningfully recognized by the ASPCA, one of the longest standing animal advocacy organizations in the world. The Henry Bergh Award carries with it an amazing history, Bergh being one of the very first people in the United States to speak out against cruelty to animals. I am grateful, humbled and very proud for our entire organization."

Pet Remedies: Matted or Tangled Hair:

Pets can roll in anything and get their fur all matted making it difficult to brush them. Long-haired dogs tend to just get matted fur by nature. A couple ways to help prevent this and work out difficult tangles follow:

Conditioner: You can give them a bath and use conditioner to untangle their fur. This is by far the easiest method to detangle a pet.

Butter: For severe tangles and matted areas, rub some butter into the fur and then wash it out with dish soap. This also works for pine pitch and other sticky messes.

Shaving: However, if a good majority of the pet's coat is matted or tangled, you will be better off shaving them and starting over. To try and help prevent future tanglements, use a stay-in conditioner on your dogs coat or regular conditioner when you give them a bath to help the hair stay moisturized and soft so as not to mat as much. Long-haired dogs need to be brushed very day or every other day to prevent knotted hair just as humans do.

Belgium Shepherds:

Belgium She pards come in various types. The Groenendael, which is always black, the Laekenois which has a woolly brown and white coat that almost looks wiry in spots, Tervuren, characterized by its thick double coat, generally mahogany with varying degrees of black overlay including a black mask, and the Malinois which can vary greatly in appearance. Belgian Shepherds are highly intelligent, alert, sensitive to everything going on around them and form very strong relationship bonds. They are said to be loyal, intelligent, fun, highly trainable and well suited to family life. They should receive plenty of socializing as puppies and will benefit from regular activity and close interaction with people throughout their lifespan. Their herding heritage gives them a comparatively high energy level therefore mental as well as physical exercise is necessary to keep a Belgian happy and healthy.

Belgian Shepherds do well in sports such as obedience training and dog agility. They are used as assistance and search and rescue dogs, as well as police, military and narcotics dogs

Lifespan: 12-14 years.

Health: Belgian Shepherds are afflicted with the most common dog health issues (reproductive, musculoskeletal, and dermatological) at rates similar to breeds in general. They differ most notably from other breeds in the high incidence of seizures and/or epilepsy. In the UK survey of Belgian Shepherds and both the 1998 and 2003 ABTC survey of Belgian Tervurens, about nine per cent of dogs had seizures or epilepsy. Other studies have reported rates of epilepsy in Belgian Tervurens as high as seventeen per cent, or about one in six dogs. For comparison, the incidence of epilepsy/seizures in the general dog population is estimated at between 0.5 per cent and 5.7 per cent.

Size: Typically they range from 40-70 pounds and are on average 22-26 inches high with the males being the larger of course.
