This is Jody King-Colegrove with Quantum Techniques, the most comprehensive diagnostic form of energy medicine in the world today. Today I’m here with the star of our show, our dog Star! This summer we took a vacation and needed to leave her at a kennel while we were away from home. If you’ve ever done that, you know that kennels require that dogs have all their vaccinations up to date. Since we try to minimize vaccinations, this is the story of what I did…
As the law requires it, we did get her rabies shot. Because she was less than one year old, the shot they give is only good for one year. Now that she’s had it once, the next time it will have a three-year duration, which is what is done for older pets. Once dogs have had their distemper and parvo vaccines, you can get have your vet do a titer test that lets us know whether they are holding their vaccination over time and so that we can determine whether they require another vaccine. Sure enough, she was holding her vaccines and did not need additional ones so that was great.
I got a lot of push-back from the vet, but you just have to be persistent, and say, “I’m willing to do titer tests.” It costs quite a bit, but it was well worth it, because then I didn’t have to give her a parvo shot or a distemper shot, which they would have probably given her both at the same time, which is also bad for pets.
Every kennel is going to require that they have a bordatella vaccine, which is basically like a flu shot for dogs, so they don’t get kennel cough. When I talked to Star’s breeder, I was told that this vaccine only protects about 17% of the different strains of bordatella out there. I requested that the vet not give her this shot, and instead that they give her a form of it that’s administered in the nasal passage, so they did that. She was a little down and out for a day; really tired and quiet, so I knew her immune system was fighting it. I gave her a QT code for it and she perked back up.
We took her to the kennel and she had a great time, but guess what she came back with? Kennel cough. We took her into the vet and said, “Okay, now what?” Well, sure enough, they said, “Okay, here’s an antibiotic, and here’s something to help with coughing.” Then they gave us a third medication because the others cause nausea. Well, the coughing one didn’t test good for her. Because her body was fighting something, she was more sensitive to things in our environment, so I cleared those blocks and that put her immune system back online, which helped.
Then I found she had 21 viruses. Of course the antibiotic they gave her was not for viruses. It’s kind of like taking your kids to daycare, and when they come back, they come back with a whole range of crud, and you just have to clear it all out. Sure enough, Star may have had one bacteria, but the rest were all viruses. I cleared her of the viruses and bacteria. I did give her the antibiotics for a couple days to help clear anything out, but then we stopped because it wasn’t testing good for her, and she was starting to get very lethargic and not feeling good; she just was not the puppy that I was used to her being. It also created a little bit of trauma for her because I put the meds in her food, and then of course she wouldn’t go near her food, so we had to clear that trauma and let her know that her food didn’t have the bad stuff in it anymore.
Well, thanks for being the star, Star!
