Feb 22nd 2017, Dr John Michael Robb DVM, at what appears to be a local government meeting, is presenting with passion and genuine concern the arguments against the current obligatory rabies vaccination protocols in the USA.
He is saying, in so many words, that the protocol is dangerous and the law on rabies vaccinations in the USA is in conflict with his hippocratic oath because the vaccination protocol can harm pets and even kill them. Shockingly the audience is disinterested. Apparently they do not have the same concern for animal welfare as Dr Robb.
Dr Robb is seeking change. He is forced under the law concerning rabies vaccinations to jeopardise the health of pets. As an excellent veterinarian he strongly objects to being placed in this dilemma. The video explains it all far better than I can in words…
There are technically no rules as to how many times you can vaccinate pets for the same disease.
“Over-vaccinating and the overdosing of pet vaccines has become a global issue. 5 lbs dogs are receiving the same dose of the rabies vaccine as 150 lbs Great Danes, and vets are now witnessing terrible side effects.” (Facebook post).
Dr Robb mentions titer testing in his presentation in the video. I have a short post on that:
M.E. King, a valued contributor to PoC says:
“Wonderful man. I spoke to him on the phone about what happened to Kitten last year. He not only answered my emails he gave me his phone number and talked to me. Hopefully we’ll all soon have a cost effective way to know if our pets need to be vaccinated.”
I trust her assessment. Dr Robb should be listened to. He is an excellent vet with high ethical standards. The profession needs people like him to represent American veterinarians.
