Re: [Felvtalk] Rabies vaccine

2012-01-06 Thread Maureen Olvey
Also, there's that group that is doing the research about how long a rabies 
vaccine is actually good for.  Their website has lots of info too like about 
the rodents not carrying rabies and why.  It also talks about things like that 
the rabies virus can be in an animal's system for months but it's only 
contagious at the very last stage when the animal starts going beserk.  At that 
last stage the animal will die in less than 10 days.  That's why if your dog 
bites someone they only have a 10 day quarantine period.  I learned a lot from 
that one website.  Wish I could remember the name of the group but I'm sure if 
you google rabies it will come up.

Re: [Felvtalk] Rabies vaccine

2012-01-06 Thread Maureen Olvey
What's funny is only a very very small population of the animals actually have 
rabies.  The Bat Conservation website said that less than 1% of bats are 
actually carrying the virus at any one time.  Course rabies is fatal and there 
is no cure or treatment once the virus is past a certain point so it is 
something that has to be taken seriously.  But still the lack of knowledge has 
made people hate and fear some of the animals like raccoons and bats.  Here in 
GA as soon as I mention the raccoons coming around and eating my feral cat's 
food I hear Oh raccoons carry rabies and you have to stay away from them.  
It's crazy the number of people that have said that to me.There's the 
assumption that most raccoons carry rabies.  There was this guy that was 
feeding one of my feral cats during the week because he worked at the business 
where the cat was at.  He said one day a raccoon came up to their open 
warehouse door and looked in and everyone just knew the raccoon had rabies.  I 
explained that raccoons are curious and just because you saw one in the daytime 
it didn't mean it had rabies.  But his boss wanted him to move the feeding 
station so that the raccoons would not be coming near them.  Actually he told 
the guy not to feed the cat anymore but we got around that.  Point being that 
one glance at a raccoon in the daytime struck fear in those men.

Where we live, in the mountains of WV, they drop bait from low flying
aircraft. This is oral rabies vaccine for the raccoons to eat. They
haven't done this for several years, but did at one time. I have no

am here(: the CDC has some info too. I have Dr Don Hamiltons book on 
Homeopathy. And a couple other homeopathic books. They all say that the rabies

all very fascinating, what we are told and what the truth is!

I just did some reading on rabies and it appears that mice and other rodents
don't carry Rabies. Raccoons foxes and bats look to be the heaviest
carriers. The East coast, for some reason is the largest region of raccoons
carrying rabies!

Sounds like the mayor of silex.  They moved the town up on the hill because it 
kept geting flooded.  The had written rules about what you could and could not 
do, like no one could have more than 1 dog and no one could have a fenced area 
with dog houses.  Dogs have to be kept in house and walked on a leash.  1 man 
has 4 dogs and 4 pens for them at the back of his house and they are on somene 
else's land. And the list of stupid laws keeps changing every day.  Sure glad I 
live on a buff about 2 miles out of town, don't have to put up with that 
nonsense. i ALSO DON'T HAVE HOUSES 30' FROM MY HOUSE.  cATS AND i HAVE 25 ACRES

 Interesting huh?  I need  to  check  out  that group again to see
 if they've found anything else  out  or if it actually last longer
 than the 4 years even.  I know they  were doing more research 
 studies.

 Will  most  vets give the 3 year one to a kitten?  Most vets I've
 been  to  recommend that the kittens get the 1 year vaccination and
 then the  next  year they get the 3 year one.

Yup, that's the idea!  The FVRCP, for example, according to a protocol of a
few years ago, should be given every 3 yrs now, but they still insist on the
yearly ones; in fact, after the first series, technically, a cat is
protected for life.

You do the best you can do with the information you have and the  
circumstances and know that what you do is done with love.


I have ferals that have been with each other for long periods of  
time.  I can't isolate those with problems and, even if I could, they  
would all have been exposed.  I won't kill based on a test.  I don't  
test.  There is nothing I can do but provide food, water, shelter,  
spay and neuter + whatever care I can provide..not by any  
book.  It is the best I can do.

I understand that manufacturers are no longer making 1 year vaccine--its all
3 years.  In fact, most adult animals develop a long time immunity after the
first 3 year shot.
