What Harmful Ingredients Are In Your Dog’s Vaccine?

The Toxic Cocktail

All vaccines are basically made the same way.

The variations in the ingredients are only slight from company to company, and from species to species (humans, dogs, horses, etc) … except, that is, for the virus particles themselves..

There was a time when the ingredients were available on a large ingredient insert. Transparency didn’t seem to be an issue before … but now it’s getting harder and harder to find out exactly what’s in vaccines.

As a vet, the FDAs protection of formulas doesn’t provide me with enough data to recommend vaccine types or schedules … It’s usually one-size-fits-all.

And frankly, for your dog that means buyer beware.

Types Of Ingredients

Although we don’t know all the ingredients of every individual vaccine … we do know the sorts of ingredients common in most vaccines:

  • Adjuvants: aluminum salts, oil-based squalene, bacteria-based lipopolysaccharides, sugars.
  • Preservatives: mercury (thimerosal), antibiotics (gentamicin, amphotericin B, neomycin, polymyxin-B), phenoxyethanol.
  • Attenuating agents: formaldehyde.
  • Growth medium: foreign animal tissues:
    • Chick embryo
    • Bovine serum
    • Human fetal lung tissue
    • Monkey kidney tissue
    • Porcine tissue
    • Eggs
    • Insect proteins
  • Fungicides and antimicrobials: phenol, formaldehyde.
  • Buffering agents: glycerol, sorbitol, sucrose, salts, borax.
  • Stabilizers: formaldehyde.
  • Surfactant, Permeability Enhancer: polysorbate 80 (Tween® 80).
  • Virus particles: individual vaccines (modified live or killed), contamination viruses (Rotavirus) from the animal tissues used to grow vaccines.
  • Contaminates: glyphosate from GMO-fed animals … used for vaccine growth medium (eggs, bovine and porcine tissue), insect viruses (Army worm), Rotavirus.

These ingredient highlights should make you shudder … and hesitate to vaccinate until you gather more information.

I suggest you keep reading … so you understand what injecting these into your dog means for her longevity and vitality … and ultimately for the health of all animals.

Not to mention her endless suffering … and your stress, as you experience an animal plagued by chronic illness.

Big Pharma and the media would have you believe there might be some teeny possibility of harm that could occur rarely, if ever, on a purple planet, far, far away … but mostly vaccines are good and everyone needs them!

They want us to believe there’s no ugly, only good.

I beg to differ, as would many thousands of doctors and healthcare providers who study the ugly. I’m sharing some of that information with you here.

The 1st Ugly – Adjuvants

These are chemicals added to vaccines to enhance and lengthen the immune response … especially at the local injection site.

They’re mostly aluminum salts discovered many years ago as pickling agents. Yes, for pickles!

There is no biosystem that uses the heavy metal aluminum – none!

Once aluminum is in the body, it’s difficult to remove. It’s troubling how this method of pickling cucumbers became an ingredient to supercharge vaccines …

the aluminum adjuvants turn on the immune system. It’s done in a non-selective, non-specific way, making immunity” last longer.

We think of these reactions as benign and collectively call them “allergies” … but anyone living with a dog with allergies knows they’re far from benign.

After the aluminum causes damage locally, it goes to the brain, spleen, muscles, bones, liver and heart … where it stimulates the immune system (by presenting the virus antigen particles repeatedly). It also acts as an antigen itself, stimulating the immune system to stay “turned on.”

In other words, it acts as an adjuvant and an antigen.

These toxicants are so widely studied that there’s a syndrome used to describe this complex of diseases …

It’s called ASIA (Autoimmune Inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants).

Few veterinarians or human doctors are even aware of this syndrome, so it’s unlikely you know about it.

This syndrome shows that chronic stimulation of the immune system stimulates chronic inflammation. And that leads to chronic autoimmune disease throughout the body.

That’s a lot of chronic, isn’t it?

Autoimmune disease is as epidemic in dogs as cancer. Once inflamed, it’s not easy to cool these tissues down.

Other adjuvants such as squalene, sugars and lipopolysaccharides aren’t naturally adjuvants … but, added with other ingredients, they become very irritating to the immune system.

They make the response to the vaccines more aggressive and longer-lasting.

If your dog survives the harmful effects of heavy metals, oils, sugars and fatty sugars produced by bacteria … there are more hurdles to jump.

The 2nd Ugly – Preservatives

Vaccines are actually quite unstable at room temperature. Refrigeration and stabilization with chemicals is critical to keep everything from becoming inactive. But chemical preservatives are also needed.

The most common agent is ethyl mercury … also known as thimerosal or merthiolate (yes, what your mother used on your minor cuts).

The wide use of mercury in vaccines is most likely because it’s cheap.

Mercury is very toxic to the central nervous system.

It can disrupt normal nerve signaling and decrease motor functions … think degenerative myelopathy or weakness of the spinal nerves. It can decrease memory function by destroying brain cells … think cognition problems and Alzheimer’s).

For many with poor detoxifying ability to remove this heavy metal, it further causes immune dysregulation (think chaos!).

Vaccines contain other preservatives to prevent foreign bacteria and fungi from growing.

These include common antibiotics and fungicides … such as gentamicin, amphotericin B, neomycin and polymyxin-B.

I have to wonder if using these could be an early set up for the epidemic of antibody-resistant bacteria.

And if that weren’t enough, add a dash of phenoxyethanol, which is made from phenol, a known carcinogen … which comes from benzene, another known carcinogen.

This antimicrobial is the same phenol naturally found in coal tar, a highly toxic acid (aka carbolic acid) that’s caustic to the skin, eyes, the respiratory system … basically all tissues.

Phenoxyethanol is commonly known to cause reproductive issues. You can find its chemical intermediate in the production of … plastics (BPA), nylon, detergents, herbicides and pharmaceuticals.

And if that weren’t enough, the Third Reich used it to kill people.

If that isn’t sending chills up your spine, read on …

The 3rd Ugly – Attenuating Agents

Attenuation is the process of altering the virus particles (called antigens). It makes them less virulent … thus less capable of causing illness.

The virus passes through certain tissues, and alters to be harmless (in theory) or less virulent … hopefully

These vaccines are called modified live … and they make up many of the core vaccines, including parvo and distemper. The viruses are considered live but weakened … and thus less likely to cause the full-blown clinical disease.

These modified live vaccines have enough of the antigen present that the immune system elicits a stronger, longer-lasting effect on its own … this decreases the need to add the adjuvants I discussed before.

Inactivated vaccines, also called killed vaccines (rabies, polio), are usually killed by heat or formaldehyde … a known carcinogen.

These vaccines are weaker and need boosters to provide an effective immune response. So they’re usually reserved for diseases that can pass from animals to humans.

Adjuvants are added to killed vaccines along with more antigen … which makes them last longer and produce more immune stimulation. This is why inactivated vaccines can cause worse reactions than modified live vaccines.

Viruses infect all sorts of plants and animals. Passing virus antigens through tissue cultures of these plants or animals can allow for unwanted viral contamination … making the vaccine cocktail infected.

An added component of the vaccine cocktail is formaldehyde. A known carcinogen used as a chemical attenuating agent.
