I came across a transcript of this Interview today. I believe it was done back in 1996. It’s amazing how much some vets knew about the dangers of vaccination back then and how little they know (or admit they know) today. Most vets are still recommending annual vaccinations and most clients are still doing it. It’s all quite sad.
Vaccination Interview with Bob Rogers, DVM of Texas
Welcome back to another great “If Your Horse Could Talk” show which promotes natural horse care through knowledge. I’m your host Lisa Ross-Williams and today I’ll be chatting with Dr Bob Rogers about the class action lawsuit concerning pet vaccinations.
Lisa-Welcome Dr Rogers. Thanks so much for being with us today. Before we get into the nitty-gritty of this issue, please tell us a bit about your background and how you got involved with this issue.
Dr Rogers-I’m a 1975 graduate of Texas A & M University and I’ve been in practice for 30 years. In 1988, I noticed a new vaccine came out for Coronavirus and I was confused because I had never seen a case of a dog with Corona. In talking with the manufacturer, they said the vaccine was only developed for use for puppies, they acknowledged that Corona was not a disease of adult dogs and yet, their marketing department was marketing it for adult dogs. I asked them what was up with that and they said that Marketing doesn’t talk to Research & Development.
I thought that over the years vets would quit using the Corona virus vaccine but what I’ve seen is more and more unnecessary and ineffective vaccines coming out. In 1997, I went to a seminar where Dr Ron Schultz, probably the most prominent immunologist in veterinary medicine said that giving vaccines like Rabies, Distemper, and Parvo annually had no effect. I went back to my practice and changed my vaccine recommendations as I cannot in good conscious charge a client for something that does nothing, especially when I know that there’s a risk involved. I was very surprised over the years to see that nobody else was changing.
