When I received my first dog, Socrates, an English springer spaniel, in February 1998, I didn’t know then what I know now about the dangers of vaccinations (see my blog post about this subject). Socrates was over-vaccinated and became ill with a number of autoimmune issues, as well as with something called the rabies miasm. His health and my deep love for him led me on a path of learning ways to help animals heal and feel better on many levels. I have attended many seminars on canine health and behavior over the years. I have also attended seminars about vaccinations with Dr. W. Jean Dodds and Dr. Ronald Schultz. I also learned so much about helping dogs heal and feel better in my many Tellington TTouch® trainings.
