“When I adopted my first baby, a canine, I came across the E-book titled, “How to Protect Your Dog from a Vaccine Junkie” by veterinarian Dr. Paula Terifaj. What I learned back then, in 2009, about the overuse of vaccines in dogs, triggered the depth of my research about vaccines for my human babies.” -Dr. Miller
