I have recently been introduced to several scientific studies linking vaccine damage to pancreatitis. I have to admit that this connection makes sense to me. We used to blame high fat foods for pancreatitis in our pets but we are seeing an alarming increase in pancreatitis in our patients even those eating a low fat prescription diet. These dogs don’t fit our “pancreatitis risk group”. What is going on? It seems the one common denominator is recent or repeated vaccination. The studies show that histamin release triggered during vaccination causes damage to the pancreas.
I can honestly say that I have never seen pancreatitis in a minimally vaccinated or non-vaccinated dog. I do believe that these study results hold water and should be addressed by the veterinary community.
