2. What about pets? My beloved cat died from VAS (vaccination associated sarcoma).
One of the vets who treated her told me that you should have your vet give your cat her vaccination at the tip of her tail. That way if she develops a malignant tumor at the vaccination site, it has a better chance of being detected, and the tail can be amputated before the cancer has a chance to spread.

WTF kind of industry makes you choose between having your cat vaccinated against rabies, distemper and feline leukemia only to die from VAS, or not being vaccinated at all (and thereby breaking local rabies vaccination laws, and foregoing vet treatment for other problems, since vets won't treat your cat if their vaccinations aren't up to date)?

The pet vaccination industry, that's what.

Yes, I know this top is about people, but I don't have children.
