Infectious diseases and parasites are part of nature too, and preventing illness is part of holistic animal care. Are vaccines, pesticides, and antibiotics and other drugs the only tools we have to deal with these problems? Of course not!
If you are starting to question annual or "booster" shots, or vaccination in general, or are already committed to alternative methods of building excellent health and disease resistance in your pets, this list is for you. We're here to talk about holistic and alternative health for dogs and cats, the relationship of health to common vaccination practices, and how to create radiant good health in our companion animals in order to protect them from disease. This list is open to those who are just starting to wonder about these practices, as well as those who have more experience. The list is focused on dogs and cats, but discussions of other species of animals are welcome too.
BeyondVaccination is not intended as a debate list, although there is no "party line" and many viewpoints are welcome. But if you are basically in support of animal vaccination and the routine use of pesticides and drug therapies, and are not questioning those practices, and want to argue about those subjects, this list isn't the place.
This list is archived on Onibasu.com, so if you want to search the archives more efficiently than by using Yahoo's search, that's the place to do it.
