Dr. W. Jean Dodds says, "Never vaccinate a pregnant dog."

In an August 1, 2008 article in DVM360 entitled Vaccination: An Overview, http://veterinarycalendar.dvm360.com/avhc/article/articleDetail.jsp?id=568351 Dr. Melissa Kennedy states regarding modified live virus vaccines and pregnant dogs: Because the agents are infectious, there is some risk for immunosuppressed animals, and significant risk for the fetus in pregnant animals.

On Page 28 of the attached 2003 American Animal Hospital Association's Canine Vaccine Guidelines http://www.leerburg.com/special_report.htm -- it states under "Important Do's and Don'ts" 5. Do Not Vaccinate Pregnant Dogs The dog may abort of fetuses may get infect.

On Page 24 of the 2006 American Animal Hospital Association's Canine Vaccine Guidelines The downloadable in PDF format at http://www.aahanet.org/PublicDocumen...s06Revised.pdf its states that: "As with pregnant dogs, veterinary medicine has advised against vaccination during illness, due to concerns about suboptimal seroconversion, or worse, conversion of vaccine to disease." In other words, if you vaccinate a pregnant or sick dog, not only do you run the risk of a less-than-desirable immunological response, but you also run the risk of your dog contracting the disease the vaccine is supposed to prevent.

In a nationwide study of rabies among dogs and cats in 1988, only one dog and two cats that were vaccinated contracted rabies (49). All three of these animals had received only single doses of vaccine; no documented vaccine failures occurred among dogs or cats that had received two vaccinations. "

I see that "Dr. W. Jean Dodds"- is quoted in the post I am replying to. Perhaps "Dr. W. Jean Dodds" is a credible, knowledgeable source-
I don't know.
I have heard that "Dr. W. Jean Dodds" is not a DVM.
Anyone know anything about this?
Interested to learn more.
