FVRCP vaccine things you should know! — Kidney failure

Feline Vaccine Dangers- Kidney Failure


Holistic veterinarian Dr. Deva Khalsa says in her newsletter:

“It’s important that we all know the side effects of the vaccines we give our cats. One of the most dangerous side effects of the feline distemper vaccine is that it causes kidney failure in cats.

Let’s take a look together at some plain and simple facts. The most important vaccine for cats to get is feline distemper (also called feline paneukopenia), yet only kittens get feline distemper. So if your cat has had a vaccine or two for feline distemper and is not a kitten, why get the vaccine at all? How about if your cat is an indoor cat? How often is he or she exposed to any disease? The vaccines are effective and long lasting so why keep getting them?

But that’s not the whole story. There’s more. Because if vaccines didn’t have adverse affects on our cats health I wouldn’t even bring this topic up. So what if cats get too many vaccines, if it doesn’t hurt them and it makes your veterinarian happy… where’s the harm?

But vaccines are not harmless. They are considered a medical procedure, with risks and benefits. Are vaccines safe? That’s the first question to ask. And the answer is an emphatic NO. Vaccines do not only cause immediate reactions like swelling at the site of vaccination or lethargy and fever. Vaccines do cause real life threatening health problems later on.

The virus for this vaccine is grown in a culture of feline kidney cells. And there’s some frightening information concerning this vaccine made even more distressing because something like 80%-90% of cats will go into kidney failure. Colorado State University did some research which showed that the majority of kittens developed autoantibodies to their own kidney tissue after being vaccinated for panleukopenia-feline distemper. And each booster vaccine creates more antibodies in the cat to the cat’s own kidneys. Your cat’s immune system then attacks it’s kidneys causing a low grade inflammation and as the years pass it all adds up and kidney failure is the result. The rub is that these vaccines are long lasting and adult cats are resistant to the disease so the vaccine isn’t even needed.

Vaccinate responsibly. Adult cats do not need this vaccine at all. You can learn more about vaccines at the dogandcatvitamins.com blog.

I hope the information in this newsletter helps you to decrease your beloved cat’s risk of getting kidney disease. Pass this onto your friends so other cats can also live longer and happier lives.”
