A miracle on Jonas drive

Look at me now!!

Look at me now!!

Jonas is an amazing dog and a real spit-fire. Two days after he turned a year old he developed a seizure disorder (6 weeks after being vaccinated.) The doctors had a difficult time initially controlling his seizures. Once his seizures were under control, life was good.

He is extremely smart and brings joy to your heart just looking at him. We have two Dobermans, and neither of their personalities compares to Jonas's. He is just so spunky. When you look at him, you can actually see his wheels turning trying to figure out how to out wit you.

This personality changed all to soon when he turned two.

Six weeks after being vaccinated, Jonas became lethargic and listless. His spunky personality was no longer there. We knew that something was seriously wrong with him.

After bringing him to the emergency vet -- and 2 blood transfusions later -- I was told that he had IMHA (Immune-Mediated Hemolytic Anemia), a severe iron deficiency. The vet immediately asked when he was last vaccinated. It was then that we were told that Jonas was never again to be vaccinated and that not only is this a life-threatening condition, but that they feel this condition -- as well as his seizures -- were definitely related to vaccinations.

After several LONG months of being on toxic medications and repeat blood work, Jonas went into remission.

It should be known that western medicines were not helping him. Rather, they were hurting him.

His blood counts were not improving on the western meds. The vets were at a loss as to how to treat him. They wanted to conduct more testing and stated that we would probably have to make a tough decision, as nothing was working.

After hearing this, I decided to do some research and came across a homeopathic supplement called transfer factors. This product is what saved Jonas's life.

The vet was amazed at how Jonas responded to this product and how he did a 180 degree turn-around.

To date, Jonas is off all meds related to the IMHA and has returned to his spunky self. He truly is a miracle dog. He has been through more stuff in his first two years of his life than most dogs go through in a lifetime.

Thanks for the story in Dog Fancy
by: Shelia B.

I am so glad Jonas is doing better. I read your story in Dog Fancy. My Akita was vaccinated and 1 week after, he had a Grand Mal Seizure, it was so horrible! He had a real mild one about 1 year earlier and when I thought about it, it was right around the time he was vaccinated then too. I am really leary about giving him his vaccinations again. I know I will be asking his vet alot of questions before I do. Thank you for your story, and if the reason Yukon had the seizures is because of his vaccinations, you may have saved his life. Thank you so much, and you & Jonas take care.
