The experience will be enhanced by a recording anthropologists have made of sounds of the Stone Age using instruments from 10,000 years BC. Subsequently, Lyla Haggard, Andrea Ellena and Candace Knapp will show some examples of their sculptures and explain how they were made. The public is welcome, free. 7:30 pm.

Around The Yard

July Gardening What to Plant

Bedding Plants: Summer annuals to plant now include celosia, coleus, torenia and ornamental pepper. Bulbs: Butterfly lily and gladiolus are bulbs that can be planted during the middle of summer. Herbs: While summer is too hot to start herbs from seeds, many will do well if started from small plants. Palms: Continue planting palms while the rainy season is in full swing. Support large palms with braces for 6-8 months after planting. Nails should not be driven directly into a palm trunk.

What to Do

Trees: Prepare for hurricane season by checking trees for damaged or weak branches and prune if needed. Hire an ISA certified arborist. Lawns: Determine the cause of any lawn problems before taking action. If an insect is the culprit, treat only the affected area. Rule out disease or sprinkler malfunction. Solarize the vegetable garden: Use summer heat as a tool in preparing the vegetable garden for fall planting. It takes 4-6 weeks to kill weeds, disease and nematodes, so start now. Azaleas: Prune no later than mid-July to protect developing buds for next spring’s bloom. Irrigation: An inexpensive rain shut off device can save money by overriding an irrigation system when it rains. If one is already installed, check that it is operating properly. Pests on Ornamental Plants: Small white dots on the

leaves of azaleas and other ornamental plants may indicate lacebugs at work. Spray forcefully with water to helpcontrol this pest. Citrus: Check citrus trees for damage to fruit or leaves and take action to minimize the effect of insects and/or disease on developing fruit or the overall health of the tree.

A Fresh, Healthy Approach to Breakfast, Brunch & Lunch

First Watch by Katy Cox

It’s seven AM and the manager of the Wesley Chapel First Watch is unlocking the front door. As you walk in, the aroma of cooked, seasoned potatoes, thick cut bacon, and freshly brewed coffee greet you as to say, “Good morning”. Since opening the doors of the Bruce B. Downs location, First Watch has created quite the loyal following with its fresh, healthy approach to breakfast, brunch, and lunch. The menu inspirations come from the growing franchise’s roots in Monterey, California. First Watch has always been ahead of the trends, offering ingredient options that fit healthy lifestyles without compromising freshness and taste. Organic yogurt, turkey, sausage, and the ability to substitute with cholesterol free fat-free eggs or egg whites at no additional charge follows their mantra of, “If we can, we will!”. Food is made to order here and there are no heat lamps, microwave ovens or deep fryers in the kitchen.

On any day, you can see a diverse guest flow enjoying the free WI-FI and complimentary newspapers. Coffee pots filled with a custom roasted blend from Sunrise Select are left on the table so you can pour your second or third cup whenever you like. There are so many offerings of the First Watch menu, from a traditional breakfast of eggs, seasoned potatoes, sausage links and an English muffin to the oh so popular energy bowl where you have a choice of housemade granola or Muesli cereal of oats, sliced almonds, pecans, cransins, wheat germ and 12

raisins all topped with fresh fruit, a touch of cinnamon, and low-fat organic yogurt. The omelets are all three eggs and are whipped to make them big and fluffy. My favorite is the time tested Bacado! Bacon, avocado, and Monterey Jack cheese topped with a dollop of sour cream and served with a side of housemade salsa. Feel free to share, just ask for an extra plate. There is no extra charge! If you love pancakes, First Watch is your mecca. The pancakes here are humongous with choices like blueberry, banana granola crunch, carrot cake, pecan, chocolate chip and the savory bacon cheddar pancake. Beware though; a stack is three of these dinner plate size beauties so you can order one or two and share with the table. I was very surprised by the Floridian French Toast! To me, French toast is kind of heavy, but not this sourdough French toast. It is light with wheat germ, powdered cinnamon sugar and fresh blackberries, kiwi, and banana, I’m not left feeling overstuffed. I “upgraded’ with my own personal bottle of real maple syrup, what a difference! Lunch is just as delightful as breakfast! I explored the Monterey inspired Chickichang of whipped eggs, spicy all-natural white meat chicken, chorizo sausage, green chills, cheddar and jack cheeses, onions, and avocado all rolled in a flour tortilla. The First Watch “Helmsman” or head of the line topped it with a smooth Vera Cruse sauce and sour cream before allowing my lunch to leave the kitchen. Attention to detail at First Watch is extremely important. Salads and sandwiches are also available. Heck, if you want, you could enjoy one of them at breakfast. Yes, you can order anything you want off the menu at any time from seven AM when the open until two-thirty in the afternoon when the kitchen closes for the day. The Fruity Chicken is a light combination of all natural white meat chicken salad served with baby spinach, tomato, and lots of seasonal fruit with poppy seed dressing on the side. The Pesto Roast Beef has roasted tomatoes, spinach, and Swiss with pickled red onions and a basil pesto spread on grilled sourdough. The “2 for You” is a unique way to get exactly what you want. It’s a choice of half a

sandwich and half a salad or half a sandwich and a cup of soup. Ask your server what the featured soups are; salad choices range from the Pecan Dijon Cobb, No 5 Asian and Santa Fe. Choose from the Monterey Club sandwich, Al B. Core, grilled turkey, Reuben, or Beefeater. The price is right and you won’t leave hungry! It’s just like a writer to save the BEST for last! I have some “inside information” on the First Watch summer specials! They will be available starting July 8th and only for a limited time.


Brûléed Banana waffle is a light and airy waffle topped with caramelized brûléed bananas, brown sugar-glazed bacon, a sweet cream sauce drizzle and bacon-infused syrup. The French Toast Monté Cristo is housemade sourdough French toast layered with ham, turkey, melted Swiss and creamy dijonaise grilled to perfection and coated with powdered cinnamon sugar. It will come served with First Watch dressed greens and a side of raspberry preserves for dipping. I was lucky enough to try this item and it did not disappoint! The Summer Cherry Chicken Quinoa bowl is sure to become a new favorite with its proteinpacked quinoa tossed with house-roasted zucchini, dried cherries, all-natural white meat chicken breast and creamy herbed goat cheese. It’s topped with sliced almonds, fresh herbs and drizzled with balsamic dressing. Try it, you’ll like it!

What would summer be without something cold and fresh to sip on?

First Watch has a strawberry mint cooler of crushed strawberries garnished with strawberry slices and mint leaves served over ice. Perfect on a hot and steamy Wesley Chapel day! Hours are MON.-SUN. 7:00 am–2:30 pm 1648 Bruce B Downs Blvd • Wesley Chapel (813) 929-3947

Brian Adams


CEO - Florida Hospital, Wesley Chapel

Do you live in Wesley Chapel?

I do. My family and I live in the Seven Oaks neighborhood in Wesley Chapel. We moved there in December of 2010 at the ground breaking of the hospital. I’m thrilled to live close to work andfast. I love the neighborhood. In an emergency, you want expert care Fortunately, Florida Hospital has an entire

Both care through a powerful combination of medical expertise, state-of-the-art technology andboys. genuine compassion.

FOR MORE INFORMATION AND DE TAILED DIRECTIONS, VISIT

We understand that you grew up in Canada. Who were your heroes growing up?

I was very blessed to grow up in a close family with an extended family and have really a great group of friends. I don’t know that I could identify “a hero”. Certainly my parents taught me a lot about hard work and how important it was to focus on school. I’m very thankful for that. 2600 Bruce B. Downs Blvd. | Wesley Chapel

excellent business program, but it also focused on the mission and the purpose. Having the opportunity to have a Christian background that focuses on using my skills to serve others gave me the opportunity to do what I wanted to do.

So family helped you determine the path you have taken in life?

Absolutely, both my grandmothers worked in hospitals and one of my family members was actually treated at a Florida Hospital in Orlando. I always knew I wanted to be involved in something that could help people. When I was in ninth grade, I volunteered to give blood and collapsed on the floor. So I realized that my gift may not be nursing but I may be able to use my skills to help other people in another way.

When Studying at Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska, was there something specific that peaked your interest to go into health care administration?

By the time I got to college I had already decided the path I wanted to take. Union was a great place because it was an

Explain your role, as you see it, as CEO of Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel. I believe there’s no greater responsibility than the responsibility to care for the health care of a community. In its simplest terms my role is to create and inspire a team of caregivers. So, in some ways it’s the easiest role at the hospital. Some of the results we have achieved put us within the top 10% of hospitals in the country for patient experience and patient satisfaction. Its something we’re very proud of…but its’ also something we expect. My job is remove barriers for the team so they can deliver excellent care.

Who actually owns Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel?

Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel is a member of Adventist Health System. Adventist Health System is a tax exempt, faith-based profile continued on next page WC magazine • JULY 2013

organization that runs 44 hospitals in eleven states. Twenty-two of the hospitals are in the state of Florida.

What is the relationship between Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel and The Seventh Day Adventist Church?

chance to build a brand new hospital from scratch and utilize all the best practice knowledge in medicine today. That means, of course, the opportunity to incorporate state-of-the-art technology. But more than that, we’ve been so fortunate to receive over 20,000 applications for 400 jobs. And the opportunity to hand select people that are not only committed to excellence clinically, but also committed to caring is an incredible opportunity. We’re very proud of our team. The hospital system really exists to carry out the health ministry of The Seventh Day Adventist church. There are two distinct entities, but ultimately the reason why we are in health is because of the initial vision the church had for an opportunity for people to live a healthy lifestyle. And, ironically, avoid the need for a hospital. We are uniquely positioned to do some of that. We have our Health & Wellness Center and other health and wellness programs that help people get healthy and stay healthy.

Can you define and explain the Adventist view on healthcare?

The Seventh Day Adventists believe that a healthy lifestyle contributes to good physical health and enhances a person’s mental and spiritual potential. In 1866, in Battle Creek, Michigan, the Seventh-day Adventist Church established an innovative healthcare center that recognized the importance of whole-person health, as well as the relationship between physical health and emotional and spiritual well-being. Back in those days, many medical treatments were as harmful as the diseases they intended to cure. For example, doctors would actually prescribe smoking to exercise peoples lungs and they believed that blood-letting was helpful for a fever. They also believed cool evening air actually carried disease and people were encouraged to stay inside. So the healthcare center they founded not only treated diseases, but also taught people how to prevent disease through good nutrition, exercise and sanitation.

How does the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act bill affect Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, its goals and the way that it cares for patients?

We’ve talked a little bit about why we do what we do. One of the things in the Patient Protection Act is the continuation of payment for performance. Because our motivation has always been to provide the top outcomes for our patients, it really doesn’t change what we’ve already been focused on, but it certainly recognizes it.

How does your Health & Wellness Center fit into the overall vision of the hospital?

The exciting part our Health & Wellness Center, which opened in January, is that it’s really a live demonstration of the organization’s commitment to the health of the community. There are very few new hospitals. There are even fewer that have the resources we have in the Health & Wellness Center. It’s poised to help thousands of community members live their lives in a healthier way. We know that health is physical health, it’s emotional health, it’s spiritual health. And the Health & Wellness Center is really designed to help people address their overall

I think in the short-term part of my responsibility is to make sure the community knows what’s here. There is technology in this hospital that exists nowhere else in Tampa Bay, and that’s pretty exciting. Not only is this the best place for people in this community to get cared for, but people also travel here to get care. Within years, the institution and its famous physician and health educator, John Harvey Kellogg, M.D., gained international recognition. Clientele included the likes of J.C. Penney, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Amelia Earhart, Lowell Thomas, William Jennings Bryan, Dale Carnegie, C.W. Post and John D. Rockefeller. Incidentally, Battle Creek Sanitarium is where the idea for Kelloggs cereal was developed. Will Kellogg and his brother John Harvey Kellogg, MD developed a healthy grain-based grain cereal for the patients of Battle Creek Sanitarium. While Dr. Kellogg stayed on to at the Sanitarium to serve the patients W.K. had a vision that the entire populace might be interested in a more wholesome breakfast and founded the company Kellogg’s.

health, not just physical health. You would expect a hospital that offers a Health & Wellness Center to bring a different level of technology and expertise, and that’s certainly something that we do. We’re very excited about it as a resource for this community. The community has responded in an incredible way.

As a Not-For-Profit facility, assuming that money is made, how is that money applied or used within the organization?

What makes Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel better or different than other hospitals?

Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel is unique because we’ve had a 16

JULY 2013 • WC magazine

One of the exciting things about what we do is that if there is money left over after we pay expenses we’re able to reinvest that in the health of the community. That may be new technology that demonstrates better outcomes for patients. It may be new services that the community needs. We continually scan the community to look at what are the health outcomes in the community and depending on what those are we can adjust our services. We offer health & wellness lectures and screenings on

a variety of topics. The chance to reinvest dollars as opposed to pay shareholders is certainly something that we’re proud of. It’s core to the mission of why we do what we do.

Is the hospital involved in any external community outreach programs?

We offer physician lectures on a variety of topics and free community screenings both onsite and at community events. We’re also very proud to support the Pasco Mobile Medical Unit to bring a health care resource to those who have financial and/or transportation issues accessing care. Our staff volunteers on that mobile medical unity and we also contribute financially and provided them with Flu shots. We work with the area schools and have provided athletic trainers at two local high schools to help prevent injuries for the students there. We recently partnered with the Wesley Chapel Athletic Association will be offering seminars for coaches and parents on concussions and other sports related topics. Our new concussion center with a sports medicine physician is a great service for a community like Wesley Chapel that’s so active. It’s a chance for people to get a base line concussion test so that way if an injury occurs you can compare the two. A true concussion assessment requires a before and after assessment. Another thing we’ve spent a lot of time on in the community is stroke education. We’re a certified stroke center, which means someone who has a stroke in this community can get the fastest, most effective and data proven stroke results here. Educating the community to recognize signs of a stroke and them having that knowledge is part of the key effective treatment. We know if someone has a stroke and their friends or family are educated on the signs and symptoms that their results can be vastly different in a matter of hours. Those are just some of the examples of outreach we’re out doing in the community.

tual healing as well. And that really encompasses the healing experience of someone when they’re at the hospital. And so it’s important to me that the mission be demonstrated all the way from the housekeeping department to the nutritional services department to the people who deliver care on the floor. Ultimately the expression of that is the understanding that the people we care for are more than a sum of their parts. They are more than the hernia; they’re more than the shoulder surgery. They are a person, a person with a family. So we have no restricted visiting hours. Families are welcome 24 hours a day in any of our units, including in the ICU because we know a family environment is better for a patient to heal.

What are the short-term and long-term You have physicians working for you at goals of the hospital? different locations outside of the hospital? I think in the short-term part of my responsibility is to make sure We have both specialists and primary care physicians on campus and off campus. We find that primary care physicians are most effective when they are within a five-minute drive of the community they serve. If you make it more convenient for people, people are more likely to visit, especially for preventative medicine. One of the things we want to encourage is for people to go see their primary care physician. We also offer an urgent care center for when the primary care physician may not be available. That is Florida Hospital Centra Care. It’s located right across from The Grove on SR 54.

Explain how you, as CEO, see the hospitals mission statement, “To extend the healing ministry of Christ” expressed in the day to day operation of the hospital?

When you think about Christ ministry on earth it wasn’t just about physical healing. It was also about emotional and spiri-

the community knows what’s here. There is technology in this hospital that exists nowhere else in Tampa Bay, and that’s pretty exciting. Not only is this the best place for people in this community to get cared for, but people also travel here to get care. Whether it’s our emergency department with its dedicated 128 channel CT or our 3T digital MRI, which provides a diagnostic, look for physicians that is unparalleled right now. So you start to think about those pieces and part of my job is to be an ambassador for these resources in the community. Other shortterm goals are to grow the services that we’ve already started including the concussion center and the orthopedic and sports medicine programs. Over the long-term, this facility is blessed to be designed to grow with the community. Today the hospital has 83 acute care beds. Eventually this will be a 291 bed hospital. And the beautiful part of the design is that we’ll grow that way and never build in front of the front door or disrupt patient care during construction. The ability to grow in the future allows us to really meet a need as the community grows and do it in a way that will always have high quality care as we grow. That’s pretty exciting.

Around Tampa Bay

Up, Up & Away! Over Wesley Chapel By Danni Matter

Looking for something interesting, fun and exciting to do in Wesley Chapel? Have you ever dreamt of floating along side clouds, seeing for miles and watching the sunrise while high above fields and ponds? On June 13th we had the privilege of being able to experience something new and exciting, something that involved floating high above Wesley Chapel: a hot air balloon ride. I, along with three of my colleagues, traveled to The Hampton Inn and Suites an hour before sunrise to meet up with members of the American Balloons team. American Balloons is a family owned and operated hot air balloon ride company that has been in business since 1998. It is the largest of three hot air balloon companies in Wesley Chapel, and the second largest balloon company in Florida. They own seven hot air balloons, including custom shaped ones, and they offer flights year round. After two more attendees arrived at the hotel, we all took a van to the field behind the parking lot of Haverty’s, where the team began to unload the balloon from a trailer. As the enormous balloon inflated, I asked the team members about the mechanics of the balloon. The maximum altitude that American Balloons fly over this area is 3000 feet, due to the fact that the company is registered with a nearby Wesley Chapel airport. The method that the pilots use to steer the balloons is completely dependent on the altitude and wind direction, as the wind at a higher altitude blows in a different direction than the wind at a lower altitude. Therefore, the pilot may fly higher or lower in order to change direction. Meanwhile, the inflated balloon is still secured to the ground, ready for the passengers to climb in. The balloons can hold up to four or five people and one pilot, depending on the weight of each passenger. We climbed into the basket, preparing ourselves for takeoff. The crewmembers made some last min-


JULY 2013 • WC magazine

ute adjustments as our pilot, Tom, briefed us on basic safety measures and information. We were all wearing jackets because we figured it would be colder at a higher altitude, but we ended up shedding them after learning that the temperature during a flight is usually 7 to 10 degrees hotter than the temperature at ground level. Tom also told us that during the flight ash from the fire that propels the balloon might fall on us, and not to be alarmed if it did. During the flight a piece of ash fell on my head, which startled me but did not inflict any pain, so the ash is not something to be concerned about. Tom has been with American Balloons since it was founded, and has piloted around 4,000 balloon flights. After our safety briefing, the preparation was finished and the balloon was ready to lift off. Tom increased the heat that was being projected into the balloon and it slowly began to rise off of the ground. The other passengers and I were nervous at first, seeing the ground fall further and further below us, but once we were up in the air for a few minutes all nervousness disappeared. As everyone enjoyed the magnificent view, Tom informed me about the business and made friendly conversation with the passengers. We drifted over the intersection of Bruce B. Downs and S.R. 56 and the new hospital, as well as several neighborhoods and forests. It was a stunning look at Wesley Chapel from above that anyone would be lucky to experience. All of the passengers were in awe, excitedly snapping pictures of the landscape. The weather that morning was rather foggy, but we could still see far off into the distance. In case of weather bad enough that the balloon is unable to fly, however, flights are always rescheduled to a different date. The wait is well worth the trip, however.

After about an hour, Tom began searching for a place to land the balloon. We landed gently in a grassy area outside of a field next to the road. The team was ready on location to bring us down safely and load the balloon back into the truck. Everyone piled back into the van and traveled back to the hotel. As you can imagine, all of us were quite hungry at this point. When we returned to The Hampton Inn and Suites, we were able to help ourselves to the complimentary breakfast buffet located in the lobby. While we ate, passengers and crew gathered around a table to hear a story about the invention of hot air ballooning, as well as make a champagne toast (well, the passengers over 18 made a champagne toast). The atmosphere was very warm and friendly, and it really topped off an already wonderful morning. I would highly recommend American Balloons to anyone who is looking for an exciting new experience, and I am very satisfied with the results of my trip. If you are looking to book a hot air balloon trip with American Balloons, it is recommended that you make reservations at least two weeks in advance, as their schedule fills up quickly. If you would like to acquire more information on American Balloons or book a hot air balloon ride, you can visit or call 813-243-9507.

Health / Wellness

THE WELLNESS APPROACH TO LIFE In the United States, we live in a rich and diverse land, allowing for many dietary choices. Often times, however, there are negative effects from this diversity. Some of which are evident over time in food allergies and food sensitivities. If you have recently immigrated to the U.S. you may still maintain some of your traditional diet choices, and therefore, may still be in general good health with a normal body weight. However, for many who have spent the better part of their lives consuming the Standard American Diet, or S.A.D. as it is known, you may be well on your way to becoming part of the staggering rise in obesity and escalating serious health conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. The S.A.D. is full of inflammation-producing foods and beverages, often topped off with antacids. Ultimately, your body is set on a rollercoaster of large fluctuations in glucose and hormonal changes. So, how can we achieve healthier bodies? The answer: Work to achieve a balanced, whole-food based diet.

Here are some targets to aim for:

Buy more whole foods!

You may be familiar with the saying “shop the perimeter of the grocery store” & “Fresh is best and raw is even better”. Remember them when shopping. Work gradually to eliminate the processed food, refined sugar and flour products from your grocery cart and eventually your

diet. This may require advanced planning of meals, but it is well worth the effort. Consider it your best health insurance policy!

OK, let’s talk weight.

Set a realistic initial goal for yourself, then set both short and long-term objectives to stick with. Remember, it is better to have 3 smaller meals and 2 snacks than 3 large meals. Don’t forget your daily water intake. The standard recommendation is half a person’s body weight in ounces of water per day (100lbs=50oz.). Dehydration can be perceived as hunger to the brain, causing you to reach for food instead of quenching thirst. Keep a water bottle handy!

Keep moving with exercise!

15 to 20 minutes of movement daily is the minimum activity requirement. It can be at the gym or in the garden, whatever gets you moving. This is an important way to alleviate stress, improve self-esteem and promote emotional well-being. The benefits may be seen in a deeper, more restful sleep, increased range of motion, and fewer stumbles due to a better body awareness

Sleep, 7 to 9 hours of each night is essential! Many people only get that amount of sleep when they are sick….my point exactly! I know that this may sound like an impossible task with small children in the house, but sleep is important for cellular regeneration and proper brain function.

Many men and women lack this vital component to their wellness and suffer physically and emotionally from being so tired. 7 to 9 hours each night!

Even the best diet can use some nutritional support.

The quality of our air, water and depletion of soil nutrients over the course of years has made it nearly impossible to receive all the essential nutrients our bodies need simply from our food intake. Whole food supplements offer a complex array of nutrients and minerals. They are the preferred source over synthetic nutrients. Look for professional products sold through licensed healthcare providers also

As for medications...

There are side effects to many of the medications we take. Many side effects are not as obvious as developing a rash. Often times the effects develop over time, there can be changes in mood and behavior which effects our energy levels and even our relationships. Disturbance in sleep and hormonal cycles and even joint pain can occur over time. Be aware and work with your Doctor to minimize these negative effects. We hope that you have found some of this information helpful. At Rosewood Healthcare, the goal is to be your “Healthcare Life Coach”! Working on a patient’s joint and muscle problems is just the tip of the wellness iceberg. If underlying causes aren’t addresses, the condition may re-

turn. Call Rosewood today to schedule an appointment for a Spinal Exam and Wellness Consultation. In addition, there are three licensed massage therapists on staff ready to render massages ranging from Neuromuscular, Therapeutic, Pregnancy and Sports-related injuries. Yours in health, Dr. Sheryl Ballinger 24

Pets LIMIT VACCINATIONS TO OPTIMIZE YOUR PET’S HEALTH It is my opinion as a holistic veterinarian that you should at the very least modify your pet’s vaccination schedule to fit your pet’s unique physiology & potential for exposure. Over vaccination can be a serious health threat, but you do not want your loved companion to succumb to a preventable contagious disease either. A healthy immune system is the best protection! There are 3 year duration immunity vaccinations available for Rabies. There are also 3 year vaccines available for Canine Distemper, Parvo and Hepatitis (aka Adenovirus), and for Feline Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus –(the feline upper respiratory viruses) and Panleukopenia (aka feline distemper). These are the ‘core’ diseases that your pet is most likely to have the potential for fatal disease. Most pet’s vaccinations should be limited to these core vaccines, (unless your pet will have significant exposure to the other diseases). Vaccination duration of immunity studies indicate that after the ‘puppy’ or ‘kitten’ series is done, (with the last vaccine given between 16 to 18 weeks of age) and especially after a booster is given one year later (as is required for rabies) immunity lasts for 3 to 7+ years,* The exception to this is immune compromised individuals – for them the vaccine may NOT protect them, and they are more likely to have adverse reactions to the vaccination. If a vaccine is administered before the immunity has dropped a vaccine may actually deplete what active immunity the pet already has and does not necessarily give them more protection (i.e. they can end up less protected!). Vaccination before your pet has lost immunity from her/his previous vaccinations is not in your pet’s best interest. . Some vaccines have adjuvants and/or preservatives that may trigger auto immune reactions or promote chronic allergy problems. They can break the ‘ weak link ‘ in susceptible individuals - then the cascade into serious disease can occur. If there your pet suffers from allergies or has chronic health problems she/he should NOT be subjected to vaccinations.

Do NOT do all the vaccinations at the same time. It is better to separate vaccinations by at least one month. Also, do not vaccinate if your pet is s uffering from common illnesses such as bladder, ear or skin infections; at the same time that a dental or surgical procedure is done; or during stressful events. At the most have your veterinarian give the approved 3-year duration of immunity vaccinations against the core diseases – distemper, parvo, adenovirus and then at a later time - rabies. Optimally titers, (blood antibody levels) can be done to determine when your pet has dropped to an antibody level that indicates a booster vaccination may be of benefit. (Titers levels are not legally accepted in lieu of rabies vaccination.) Only then should your pet receive that specific virus vaccination that is indicated to be of benefit for your pet’s health and well-being. For a healthy full life time minimize exposure to viruses, either via vaccines or by natural exposure, give high quality nutrition, toxin free air & water, encourage exercise and provide a loving home. Remember, a healthy immune system is the best protection! Sincerely, Dr. Anne Lampru, DVM, CVA - Advocate for those who cannot talk in human words.
