Alopecia X Research Project in Europe

Alopecia X has been described in several breeds including Pomeranians, Keeshonden, Alaskan Malamutes, Chow Chows, and Miniature Poodles. Affected animals suffer from hair loss, which usually starts at the neck and body of the animal, whereas the head and front legs are typically spared. Additionally, darkening of the affected skin areas may also be observed. Symptoms typically show up between 1-5 years of age. We would like to investigate the genetic causes of alopecia X. For our research we need DNA samples from affected dogs as well as their healthy relatives

Science of Vaccine Damage

A team at Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine conducted several studies (1,2) to determine if vaccines can cause changes in the immune system of dogs that might lead to life-threatening immune-mediated diseases. They obviously conducted this research because concern already existed. It was sponsored by the Haywood Foundation which itself was looking for evidence that such changes in the human immune system might also be vaccine induced. It found the evidence. The vaccinated, but not the non-vaccinated, dogs in the Purdue studies developed autoantibodies to many of their own biochemicals, including fibronectin, laminin, DNA, albumin, cytochrome C, cardiolipin and collagen. This means that the vaccinated dogs -- ”but not the non-vaccinated dogs”-- were attacking their own fibronectin, which is involved in tissue repair, cell multiplication and growth, and differentiation between tissues and organs in a living organism.

Stop the Shots! - Are Vaccinations Killing Our Pets?

Stop the Shots! - Are Vaccinations Killing Our Pets? Pet Vaccination Dangers. Most pets today are being given too many vaccinations too often. Many caretakers are unaware of the known risks inherent in vaccines. Studies upon studies have been performed that show the very real dangers in over-vaccinating and the risks involved every time a pet gets a shot. But the word is not getting out. Dogs and cats continue to be over-vaccinated, resulting in compromised immune systems, serious diseases and (more often than you might imagine) death. John Clifton, pet advocate and award-finalist author, thoroughly researched the topic, devoting a year to this single subject. He was amazed to find that all the major animal health organizations – such as the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Animal Hospital Association and the American Association of Feline Practitioners – have recently issued guidelines emphasizing the need to minimize rather than maximize vaccines. The risks range from simple allergies to cancer to terminal shock.

The vaccinated Purdue dogs also developed autoantibodies to laminin, which is involved in many cellular activities including the adhesion, spreading, differentiation, proliferation and movement of cells. Vaccines thus appear to be capable of removing the natural intelligence of cells.

DOGS WITH SPECIAL FACES

Most people are not familiar with the term "Brachycephalic," but if you own a pug, Boston terrier, Pekingese, boxer, bulldog, shih tzu or any one of the other breeds with "pushed in" faces, you should become familiar with this word. The word comes from Greek roots "Brachy," meaning short and "cephalic," meaning head. Brachycephalic dogs have been bred so as to possess a normal lower jaw, that is, one in proportion to their body size, and a compressed upper jaw. In producing this cosmetic appearance, we have compromised these animals in many important ways and you, as an owner, must be familiar with the special needs of your pet.
