People who don't vacc's your kids...

( No drama just curious. ) Do you vacc's your pets? I KNOW it's NOT the SAME I was just wondering. Why do you or do you not? How is the decision the same or different for you?

(not sure where to put this question)

  • Lol! Good question!! Very funny. We delay vaxing our kids. I do give my dog a rabies shot. I think it is required by law! But the main reason is I do not consider my dog as the same worth as my children. If the vaccination caused a neurological disorder or a reaction in my dog I wouldn't have a problem giving her up. I would be disappointed if she died, but I could replace her. The same cannot be said for my children.

  • I had a friend who vaccinated her horses but not her kids. Dogs I understand, it's the law. But if vaccines are bad for your kids, why would you vaccinate your horses?

    BTW, I fully supportive of those who chose not to vax, just think this is a good question.

  • I don't have pets... But when I did, I did not vaccinate them either... However I have never owned anything like a cat or dog... I have mice, rats, snakes, fish and a scorpion... I'm not really sure there are vaccinations for any of those?!? IF I had a dog or a cat or something like that, I would have to do some real research before I made my final disition on the matter. As for my kids, they are and will remain vaccine free!
