Rabies Vaccination Can Cause Rabies Symptoms In Dogs | Page 2

Some of the remedies most often used to treat rabies vacccinosis are:
  • Lachesis
  • Belladonna
  • Hyoscyamus
  • Stramomium
  • Lyssin 
  • Cantharis
But many others may fit, including Aconitum, Apis mellifica, Hydrochromicum acidum, Nux vomica, Ruta graveolens, Crotalus horridus and Naja … and your dog’s symptoms may require something completely different!

Read this article by homeopathic veterinarian Ronna Kabler DVM if you’d like to know more about some of the more commonly used rabies vaccinosis remedies and the symptoms they address.

Homeopathic remedies come in different “potencies.” Usually, when your dog is ill from rabies vaccinosis, there’s a lot of mental or emotional imbalance, with disease running deep in the nervous system and the psyche. This means your homeopath will often prescribe high potency remedies such as 1M, 10M, 50M and even CM. The potency must match the strength of the disease.

Please Don’t Do This!

There’s a lot of misinformation out there, and most homeopathic veterinarians strongly advise against following one piece of advice that’s often given.

Many people, even some well known holistic minded practitioners, will recommend giving the remedy Lyssin after a rabies vaccination (or Thuja after a distemper or parvo shot) to protect against the effects of vaccination.

While it’s possible that one of these remedies may turn out to be the right one for your dog, Dr Dym says it’s a bad idea to give them with the goal of prevention. If the remedy doesn’t fit your dog, it could make him worse, causing secondary counteractions and symptom aggravations … and you can potentially cause more harm than good.

For rabies vaccinosis treatment, Lyssin is only one of 69 possible remedies listed in the homeopathic repertory that might be helpful!

Support Your Dog’s Health

Your dog’s recovery from rabies vaccinosis also depends on other important factors to support his overall health.

Feed your dog a natural, whole foods, preferably raw meat based diet. Food is the foundation of a your dog’s wellbeing and helps build a healthy immune system.

Avoid using pharmaceutical drugs (especially any more vaccines) as well as pesticides such as flea, tick and heartworm medications; all these drugs contain toxic ingredients that can harm your dog’s organs, causing serious disease and even death.

Vaccinations also contain toxic metals like mercury and aluminum that can accumulate in the body and contribute to disease.

Your homeopath or holistic vet can help you detoxify your dog from these poisons, using supplements like spirulina or chlorella, as well as antioxidants to decrease inflammation, and milk thistle or Sam-e to protect the liver.
Finding A Homeopath

If you think your dog has symptoms of rabies vaccinosis, you can find a homeopathic vet at The Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy or The Pitcairn Institute of Veterinary Homeopathy.

Don’t worry if there isn’t one in your neighborhood. Most homeopathic vets will do phone consults and it’s really easy to work this way.
