The anti-vaccination movement has a new target -- our pets.
Veterinarian Dr. Arvid Edward joins The Doctors to help debunk this idea. "Dogs and cats cannot get autism from vaccines. Autism does not exist in pets, it's never been diagnosed and I'm going to go out on a limb and say it never will," he stresses.
He explains that many of the same people who do not believe in vaccinations for humans are the ones who do not vaccinate their pets. Dr. Edward is quick to point out that all the of claims about vaccinations leading to autism have been debunked with numerous studies.
He adds, "Vaccinations are probably the best medical discovery probably in history. It's saved millions of lives. Second, to clean water, it's probably the best safeguard to public health... all these anti-vaxxers out there, stop it with the madness!"
He notes that in countries where pets are under-vaccinated, rabies kills 55,000 people per year and in America where the rabies vaccine is common, only 1 to 3 people die from the disease.
Dr. Edward's must-have pet vaccinations include: rabies, distemper parvo, leptospirosis, feline distemper and feline leukemia.
