Veterinarian Speaks Out, Presents Decades of Research Linking Pet Deaths to Over-Vaccinations is Met with Laughter


For the last 32 years, Connecticut veterinarian John Robb, who received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine from the University of California in 1985, has been fighting to protect pets. In his words “I took the Hippocratic oath,” to protect his patients no matter what – even if that means breaking the law.

His main platform has been pet over-vaccinations, which he sees as dangerous. For his educated opinion he has been ridiculed, arrested, put on probation, and even once lost his clinic- but nothing will stop him until animals are no longer suffering, becoming injured, and dying.


From the article:

“The vaccine in question is the rabies shot. Dr. Robb says that the shot works for a pet’s entire lifetime (and a blood test can determine if it is still in effect). However, largely because of the immense influence and power of the vaccine manufacturers, the rabies shot is being recommended annually. He says this shot has made pets instantly vomit and fall ill, develop immune disorders, cancers, and can even cause death.

Not only is the number of vaccines not regulated, the dose is also not adjusted for the body weight, making the shot potentially dangerous and even lethal for smaller-sized animals.”

This means that a five-pound cat would receive the same shot as a 100-pound dog. To anyone with a brain this should seem ridiculous (in fact, Dr. Robb has been administering half shots of the vaccines to his smaller patients and it’s gotten him into trouble, but he persists) but on February 22 when he spoke to the board of state officials in Connecticut and urged them to look at the research and change the laws- he was laughed at and ignored.

For his testimony, Dr. Robb brought 45 documents showing that vaccines are indeed dose-dependent and too large of a dose can kill an animal. Many of the documents also showed that very often booster vaccines are unnecessary and give zero protection to the animal.


But this isn’t the first time Dr. Robb has been in trouble. He was previously “under fire for giving pets half-doses of the rabies vaccines and advocating limited vaccinations at Banfield Pet Hospital, where he was a franchise owner.”

Once Banfield Pet Hospital found out that Dr. Robb was giving half doses, when medically necessary, they sent letters to over 5,000 of his clients attempting to scare them; they claimed the pets were not vaccinated properly and asked people to bring them back for boosters. Then, the hospital took ownership of Dr. Robb’s practice.

When the doctor showed up at the clinic to personally urge patients to first run a titer (a blood test that determines if antibodies are still present and or if the pet needs a booster) he was arrested for trespassing and banned from the clinic and the Petsmart that owns some Banfield Pet Hospitals.

Dr. Robb also says he was handcuffed and taken to the psychiatric ward of Stamford hospital, while the police went to his house to harass his wife. All for HALF vaccinations. HALF.

And later, he would go through even more hard times when the State Veterinary Board of Connecticut found out he was giving small dogs half shots of the rabies vaccine. The article reports:

“Every veterinary doctor that we have contacted told [us] that the rabies vaccine can either save an animal’s life or kill it depending on how much you administer. But they say Connecticut law has simply not caught up with this simple concept.”

So, though many veterinarians agree on the issue, Dr. Robb was put on probation, and can no longer administer vaccines. Thankfully, he still practices and can be reached at his website for appointments or consultations.

The truth is most pet owners are unaware of the great risks associated with vaccinations or they blindly take the advice of their vets, vaccinating their pets every year, even though the recommendations have changed to a (still unnecessary) 3-year schedule. But do your research. You cannot assume anyone else besides you wants what’s best for your fur baby.

    Dr Robb did not notify owners of his patients that he was under vaccinating their pets. He did not keep records of how much vaccine he had given to our pets and we were left with pets that did not have rabies certificates, as mandated by law. If Dr Robb had really wanted to study the efficacy of vaccines at lower doses, he would have kept careful records and gotten waivers on certain pets that had the proper titers of the rabies vaccine from the state vet. His patients were left in the dark, and in fact, as a dog rescuer, I was left with dogs that had not been properly vaccinated for kennel cough, causing an outbreak in my household when I brought in a dog from death row. His clinic, which rightfully fired him for this illegal behavior, paid for all treatment of the dogs in my house for the kennel cough. No one could give me back the time and stress of having numerous sick dogs here.
    If Dr Robb had wanted to study this and change the laws, he could have told his patients what he was doing and documented the doses given to each animal. When I talked to him about this, he said that yeah, he should have. That was not helpful to me or others who were left with dogs that were not documented by law.
    The reason that rabies vaccine is mandated is that rabies kills humans. If you get it, you die.
    A small, sick, or compromised animal that might be adversely effected by the vaccine can get a waiver and also one can test the titers.
    On top of this breach of trust, Robb as a fundamentalist Christian, said that Jesus made him do this and thumped his bible in protests outside the clinic, acting so crazy that he had to be taken to the hospital for psychological observation at one point. Having experienced his brand of fundamentalism, I can say that its inappropriate in any setting, much less a medical setting. He thinks that its his job to bring everyone to Jesus. All of the speaking in tongues and writhing and thumping on the bible makes him appear insane. I have told him this when he contacted me on facebook. If there is a cause here, he has damaged it with his crazy preaching as part of his protest outside his clinic. Look at the videos of him going crazy, unless he has taken them down in order to try to rehabilitate himself.
    As much as I found him a caring vet before he went off the rails, there is a reason that all of these things happened. He did what he did the wrong way and he did it with a very serious vaccine that is mandated by law. He used his patients as guinea pigs and didnt even bother to take titers or even document what he did. Partly filled vials of vaccines were found in boxes in the back room, and no notes were made about the amounts given.
    Please do your research. This is no hero.
    He disrupted all of our lives and put us in serious danger, in that we live in an area with many rabies carrying wild animals that could bite our pets.
    I do a lot of rescue and have had many tiny dogs that have had to have partial shots and then return for other shots, and i have yet to lose one. Im sure it happens, and perhaps should be addressed, but the way he did this is not the way it needs to be done.
    I know he is practicing again at various clinics but I will never use him as a vet again.
    I am all for looking at what is necessary, and getting waivers where necessary, but Robb seemingly doesnt want to do the hard work of actually studying this and following the proper channels.
    This is not a matter of some nutty health food or vitamin. Its rabies! If you do not know what happens to animals and humans with rabies you need to google it before you present Robb as a hero for animals….considering that I told him specifically that my pets and fosters needed kennel cough vaccine and he failed to fully dose them, and thus made them very sick.

    I wholeheartedly agree with Dr. Robb! A year ago, our vet mixed up files and over-vaccinated our large 20-pound Maine Coon, Tiger, double-dosing him on vaccines he didn’t need, and also giving him one he’s never had. His whole body shut down and we almost lost him. It took us 19 days of spoon-feeding him every 2 hours around the clock to bring him back. We will NEVER vaccinate Tiger ever again. In fact, if he EVER needs medical attention, I will call a local vet who makes house calls rather than bring him into any vet office.

    As soon as the real revolution starts here, Patriots WILL fix this and other “problems.” Permanently. There WILL be millions of traitors who will be captured, given a 5 minute trial for treason, and then their sentences WILL be carried out. Big pharma traitors – YOU ALL are on that list…The People ARE comin…

    Someone had posted a lengthy comment saying that Dr. Robb was a fundamentalist Christian whose strange behaviour in public had been cause for concern and accused him of unprofessional conduct, like not advising dog owner’s that he had given their dogs only half doses of vaccines, or not vaccinated them at all, etc.

    I wanted to forward the comment to a friend for comment, but I see that the comment is gone. Did you remove it Erin?

    I just vaccinated 2 dogs for rabies and distemper-
    one dog is 15, the other 22 months.
    IMMEDIATELY the 15 yr old started vomiting in the clinic and continued for an entire day,
    the 22 month old spewed extreme diarrhea,refused food and started vomiting that night.
    that was on tuesday 14 march 2017–these were a one year type rabies and a seperate distemper,’—–both dogs have received the rabies immunization before—-and never a problem- and the distemper was recommended because they are field type dogs– a young blue heeler and an active but elderly shepherd mix-
    today is sunday and this IS the 1st diarrhea free day and where they are showing energy and playfulness. they received nonstop TLC as they are important to us in here.
    i thought the 15 year old was a goner, as he was lethargic and barely moving and is still wobbly,
    the younger one was the one in WORSE shape longer with nonstoppable diarrhea-and yeah food was withheld, then rice, fat free broth, water as tolerated on and on–tomorrow we try some of their regular feed along w/rice .
    I will TELL THE VET next year to draw titre.
    now someone i know w/horses stated her guys got sick the same-immediately after vaccinating- but i don’t know what series of vaccinations and worming was given but am going there tomorrow–
    she never had any problems either in the PAST.
    did THEY change the preparations for canine ? equine ?
    our cats had no problems and are indoor outdoor and also received distemper along w/the annual rabies-

    No surprise here. Practicing medicine today means do as Big Pharma and medical consensus says or you will be attacked personally and professionally. But hey what a great way to get compliance.

    i’m not doing it anymore.
    as i told a chemist accosting me about flu shots ” nobody under my care is getting near a vaccine again”.

    Asinine vet wouldn’t neuter my 6 month old kitten without a rabies shot. Bugbee is an indoor only cat (I live on a busy road) and certainly didn’t need it. She told me no vet in our county would neuter without it. Well, Bugbee came home from the neuter paralyzed in his right front paw. Vet refused all responsibility for paralyzing Bugbee with her effin rabies shot. I had to pay for x-rays and follow up care which did nothing for his injury. I read up on homeopathic care and cured him myself with rabies nosode and other homeopathics. Took a year before he could walk normally and even now he really can’t jump and climb that well.
