Re cost : Titre test form me at local Homeopathic Vet is £48.36..(£33.60 if they were my primary vet)
The principal Homeopathic vet at the practice concerned shares views with other vets & is quoted on the CHC website. I have read views of other qualified vets who support Homeopathic & natural healthcare. I have sought views of breeders & a managing director of a food manufacturer who Titre tests & uses DE.
I don't believe comments re non qualified recommendations were aimed at me , however, to clarify - I am not suggesting owners should simply opt out of vaccines. A decision to test is a significant one & should only be made if the individual owner has researched the subject properly, considering available info, speaking to primary care &/or Homeopathic Vet first, ( I confess that I pretty much told my primary vet of my decision albeit with me providing reasoning & my understanding vet accepting my intended choices).
I agree re aspects of comments re benefits of herd protection albeit I believe Lepto disease is rat carried (many strains allegedly not covered by lepto vaccines).
To add context......My motivation to use DE as worm/ flea alternative & to Titre test prior to any further jabs has been influenced by my dog having had 3 surgeries to remove cancer mast cell lumps in area to the back of his neck (close to jab & spot on application site)......Coincidence or not - who knows ?
I have a dog owner handbook with more stamps than my well historied car, detailing every vaccination & worm/flea treatment given. I am not suggesting vaccination or wormer products cause cancer mast cell tumors, but having supported him through no less than 3 surgeries in the last year I am leaning towards adopting a more natural approach.
Currently sat typing this with my dog next with a significant 5 inch cancer, (oncology specialist referred) , surgical recovery wound to his neck !
