The Pet Professional Guild is hosting a live 90-minute webinar on pet vaccine issues at 2 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday, Jan. 27. The webinar will be hosted by Dr. Jean Dodds, a veterinarian from southern California who founded Hemopet - the first non-profit national animal blood bank.
The following is a description of the topics to be covered during the webinar (from the Pet Professional Guild website):
“Modern vaccine technology has permitted us to protect companion animals effectively against serious infectious diseases. However, the challenge to produce effective and safe vaccines for the prevalent infectious diseases of animals has become increasingly difficult. In veterinary medicine, evidence implicating vaccines in triggering immune-mediated and other chronic disorders (vaccinosis) is compelling. While some of these problems have been traced to contaminated or poorly attenuated batches of vaccine that revert to virulence, others apparently reflect the host’s genetic predisposition to react adversely upon receiving the single (monovalent) or multiple antigen “combo” (polyvalent) products given routinely to animals. Animals of certain susceptible breeds or families appear to be at increased risk for severe and lingering adverse reactions to vaccines.”
The cost for the webinar is $15 for members of the Pet Professional Guild and $25 for non-members. Click here to register for the webinar.
