After my bulldog became very sick I found myself researching her illness as well as the numerous medications she was being prescribed and I kept coming across similar articles about over vaccination. I never thought I could be harming my baby until this past year when she became so sick we thought she wouldn't make it to her 11th b'day! Luckily she is feeling much better now but we are still battling her disease which was triggered by the vaccines. I hate that I vaccinated her every year for 10 years!!! I thought I was doing the right thing and being a responsible pet owner. I do believe vaccines are important but I will never "over" vaccinate another dog now that I know the harm that can come from it. We requested a waiver this year and she was exempt from the state required rabies vaccine. My other bully got the required rabies but we opted for the 3 year. Hopefully they will move to a 7 yr requirement soon.
