Ours dogs deserve the time needed to research for their health.
She almost died, my little JRT, Jessie. She was only 6 years of age and losing her battle with an unknown enemy. As I held her on my lap; wrapped tightly in a towel I struggled to let her go; when I didn't know what was taking her. After all the tests, we were left with an autoimmune disorder. At only 15 lbs, Jessie's body was turning on itself. I have no doubt that vaccines were the cause.

I'm not going to go on and go about vaccines and the possible long term side effects. I have added several links below to read and contemplate. Are we over taxing our dog's bodies; creating diseases that might otherwise not inflict our dogs? It is already a known fact that dogs do not need annual shots. A simple titer test can tell you that. They draw blood to see the level of immunity protection your dog has to diseases that the shots are for. It is a simple test and readily available.
Are the pharmaceutical companies instilling fear in us? No doubt. More and more dogs are becoming ill, but could it be avoided? I believe that many otherwise healthy dogs succumb to disease due to what their bodies are given to deal with. Annual vaccinations, flea/tick treatment, heartworm medication, poor quality food and many new vaccines that some of the Veterinarian field are pushing. Read before you stick.
