What is Canine Distemper and what are the symptoms?
Canine distemper is a highly contagious, extremely serious viral disease which occurs in dogs and other wild canids such as hyenas and the African Wild Dog
It is an airborne, paramyxovirus , which affects the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and central nervous system of the animal. This virus is able to survive and remain infectious outside the body for up to a week. The incubation period between infection and the onset of clinical signs is between 4 and 6 days. Puppies between three and six months and elderly animals are particularly at risk.
Symptoms grow increasingly severe as the disease progresses, they include:
Conjunctivitis (a watery, pus-like eye discharge) and inflammation of the eye
Pneumonia (Coughing and laboured breathing)
Hyperesthesia (increased sensitivity to sensory stimuli, such as pain or touch)
Progressive deterioration of mental abilities and motor skills
Complete or partial paralysis
What is the conventional treatment?
There is no doubt that Canine Distemper is a serious illness. According to conventional veterinarian treatment, about 50% of dogs that contract it will die. Those that survive will often be left with debilitating conditions such as permanent digestive problems, neurological problems, seizure disorders, deformities of the paw pads, etc.
According to conventional veterinary science, Distemper 'cannot be cured' and treatment is supportive only and includes fluid therapy, intensive nursing and antibiotics to control any secondary infections.
Vaccination programmes against Canine Distemper have made this viral illness less common in recent times. However, holistic vets point out that there are serious concerns about the wisdom of routine vaccination and its long term effect on the health of pets.
The Natural Way
Homeopathic vets have managed to treat Canine Distemper far more successfully than their allopathic counterparts. Using Distemperinum in homeopathic potency, both immunisation of dogs as well as recovery rates in infected animals has proved to be highly successful. There is a wealth of evidence that this is the case and one can only wonder why allopathic vets are not making use of and being trained in the use of homeopathic medicine for their patients.
Dr Horace B.F. Jervis, a veterinarian who pioneered the use of Distemperinum published a monograph in 1929 called 'Treatment of Canine Distemper with the Potentized Virus' Dr Jervis reports his frustration over many failed attempts at treating Canine Distemper during years of conventional treatment in a veterinarian clinic. This lead him to turn away from conventional veterinarian science and to begin treating his patients using the principles of homeopathic medicine.
After developing a homeopathic treatment for Distemper, Dr Jervis writes:
"I became intensely interested in the subject and bent all my energies to the study of it. My results were, and are, so much beyond my expectations that I am sorry not to be able to interest more veterinarians to take it up and give it a trial. Anyone doing so, I venture to say, will never go back to the old school again...Since commencing the use of this product the death rate in my distemper ward has been very materially decreased, and I have really for the first time in my years of practice felt a sort of load being lifted from my shoulders."
Similarly, Dr Dorothy Shepherd, in her book, "Homeopathy in Epidemic Diseases" notes:
"Here again homeopathy offers the best solution. Believe me, it has been shown again and again that our medicines given intelligently and according to our law, do not only cure infectious diseases speedily and easily without the development of any complications, but they also prevent these same diseases. ....I therefore have no hesitation in stating that from my own experience and observation, the homeopathic preventives are much safer in use, and absolutely certain in their effects. Even should the infectious, disease develop, it will be in a much milder form"
In the words of Dr Richard Pitcairn, D.V.M., Ph.D, and founder of the Animal Natural Health Center (ANHC): "Based on my clinical experience, I think I can safely say that protection with nosodes is as reliable as with vaccinations and with the added advantage of few unwelcome side effects."
What is PetAlive Vi-Pro Plus?
Vi-Pro Plus combines a Distemperinum nosode in homeopathic dose with homeopathic Bryonia and an herbal preparation of Echinacea, providing powerful protection against Distemper. Used preventatively to immunise your dog, or curatively under the treatment of a homeopathic vet, Vi-Pro Plus can mean the difference between life and death.
How has PetAlive Vi-Pro Plus helped others?
"I am moved to write in and say that our family dog would probably not be with us today were it not for this remedy. When our usual vet diagnosed a very ill dog with Distemper things looked very serious and he thought so too. Under his supervision we used your remedy because others have worked very well and we have all been amazed at the quick recovery. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
"Luckily our vet agrees with us about yearly vaccination unlike the previous one who wanted to vaccinate every year. Our puppy is taking your Vi-Pro for Distemper to protect her against distemper and other viruses and we are confident that it will be as successful as your other products have been, including your EasyTravel for car sickness!"
"This product is fantastic - from ease of administration to effectiveness it gets 10/10 from me. I have used all your oral vaccination products for my dogs with great confidence and they remain healthy and disease free."
"Here's my story. I bought a dog from a breeder in Kentucky. I am in Louisiana. I could not drive to meet [him] , so I decided to have him sent via airplane... The next day he started to have a seizure it was very unnerving. The Vet did some blood work and other test. He determined that our brand new dog that we instantly fell in love with had distemper and would most likely die or not be normal for the rest of his life if we were lucky.
We don't have alot of money and they were recommending very expensive treatments. We being the good loving people we are turned to God in this circumstance. We searched for answers online, and by praying nonstop. Finally my mom who is a diehard holistic medicine believer turn us on to the thought of a natural cure. So, I searched and it did not take long. I found this site and was skeptical, because I am by nature. Well needless to say It came in the mail very fast. Then we begain treating him. Nothing happened at first, same old seizures 5 to ten times a day. Then one day he we woke up to him being more active... Now I am happy and blessed to say we have a wonderful healthy almost 1 year old puppy. He has made a full recovery... He brings much happiness to our home, and I truly feel this medicine had a part in that. God bless you."

"My dog was diagnosed with distemper. She became deathly ill! She wouldn't eat, or drink. Thinking I had done everything possible to save her, my last attempt was Vi-pro Plus. After just a few doses I saw the effect it made. She gradually got better and better. Without a doubt; Vi-pro plus saved her life. Thank you so much for saving my dogs life! She is happy, and full of life again."
What are the Ingredients?
Vi-Pro Plus contains the following 100% active homeopathic ingredients in equal parts and in therapeutic dosage:
Distemperinum (30C) is a homeopathic nosode used both prophylactically (preventatively) and curatively in the treatment of Canine Distemper. Homeopathic nosodes are similar to vaccines in that they help to build protection and resistance against specific diseases. They differ from conventional vaccines in that they are usually manufactured from the products of diseases rather than from a culture of the disease agent or virus itself (as in many conventional vaccines.) Research by Dr Horace B. F. Jervis, a veterinarian that pioneered the use of Distemperinum, has demonstrated the high rate of success in the treatment and prevention of Canine Distemper using this homeopathic 'vaccine'. This is in contrast to conventional veterinarian science, which states that more than 50% of dogs who contract this virus will die and the remainder will be very severely compromised for the rest of their lives.
Bryonia (6C) is a proven homeopathic remedy which is very effective for the treatment of coughs and dry mucus membranes, as well as the clearing of mucus from the chest.
Echinacea (D3) homeopathically recommended for the treatment of colds, flu and other viral infections. Used to address immune system balance and particularly suited to animals that are prone to becoming ill or lethargic.
Sucrose: inactive ingredient Vi-Pro Plus contains no gluten, artificial flavours, colours or preservatives.
Safe for use during pregnancy and nursing.
Our products are animal-cruelty free and individual ingredients are well-researched and are natural, safe and effective.
How do I use PetAlive Vi-Pro Plus?
Vi-Pro Plus comes in convenient dissolvable granule form. The tiny granules are easy to administer to dogs of all sizes and personalities and are simply sprinkled on the back of the tongue and left to dissolve. No fuss and bother!
Small to medium dogs: Two pinches sprinkled into the mouth.
Medium to large dogs: 1/4 cap of granules sprinkled into the mouth.
Preventative: Vi-Pro Plus may be given for up to a week at 3 - 6 month intervals for the prevention of Canine Distemper. Should a known case of Distemper occur in your area, even if your dog has not been exposed to the infected animal, repeat the dose for 7 days.
Acute: Administer every hour until symptoms subside. Thereafter administer three times daily for up to 21 days.
CAUTION: Please remember that Canine Distemper is a serious illness and it is recommended that any dog with an acute outbreak should be taken to a holistic or homeopathic vet to monitor treatment. Home treatment of acute Distemper is not advised and Vi-Pro Plus should be used under the supervision of a holistic or homeopathic vet for cases of active Distemper infections.
How long until I see results?
When Vi-Pro Plus is taken prophylactically (preventatively) your dog should stay free of Distemper infection. For dogs who have contracted Distemper, treatment with Vi-Pro Plus under veterinarian supervision is recommended.
Under these circumstances and with the appropriate supportive homeopathic treatment, recovery rates are good and most dogs will begin to show improvement within a few days.
How long will a bottle last?
One bottle of Vi-Pro Plus will last for approximately 15 - 60 days, depending on the size and needs of your pet.

The vaccination debate continues and certainly more and more information is available as to the harm that over-vaccinating may do to our furry companions. One needs to take a sensible, practical approach to vaccination. If your dog has no interaction with other pets then the risk of him/her contracting a disease are slight and therefore vaccination is unnecessary. However, a puppy that faces growing up surrounded by a high population of dogs, will be best protected by a course of distemper vaccinations.
Avoid contact with infected dogs and do not allow your dogs access to wildlife.
