Cryptorchidism And Vaccines

    I have heard in a few places that cryptorchidism could be caused or aggravated by the first set of puppy shots. I was wondering if there are any thoughts on this, or is it totally a genetic issue?


    I have seen cryptorchidism resolved through homeopathic treatment based, of course, on the entire presentation. I’d say the predilection may have an inherited – genetic or epigenetic – component, but surely the assaults of vaccines and drugs play a part. The condition is a slowness or failure to develop along normal timelines, and not a physiological malformation, and this makes it a very suitable situation for homeopathic resolution.

    Thanks so much for your input Ginny. I totally agree about the possible causes of cryptorchidism. Unfortunately, I am not aware of any studies that confirm anything more than an association in some breeds and lines of dogs, e.g http://veterinaryrecord.bmj.com/content/152/16/502.abstract.

    I do however also feel that this problem is amenable to homeopathic (working with the body) prescribing. I have seen clear temporal associations between administration of a homeopathic remedy and “dropping” of the missing testicle.

    Of course, conventional wisdom says that this was just a “coincidence”.

    So be it. I’ll continue to work with these slow to develop pups.

    Have a great Sunday.
