Pet Wellness – Veterinary Medicine Loses to Big Pharma
Well it’s confirmed. The adoption of veterinary medicine in the United States and other first world countries is confirmed. Big Pharma finally made it to the finish line. Should pet owners and their pets be excited about this acquisition? Well, I wouldn’t start planning the party just yet because according to many vets out there, that’s not a cause for celebration. What does this mean for pet welfare and natural pet health care?
For decades, because of the tremendous profits that can be made from pets, these drug companies have invested a great deal of time and effort in an aggressive campaign to rewrite vet school curricula, influence veterinarians, and brainwash pet owners into believing that their pets Medicines need to thrive and to be healthy to thrive. Thanks to advertising funded by greedy, callous pharmaceutical companies, most consumers already display a cult-like belief in pharmaceutical medicine. So it was easy for Big Pharma to convince pet owners that their animals need the same.
Today, it is common for veterinarians in the US to use chemical medicine on pets. Immediately after the diagnosis, the animal owner receives a prescription for an expensive, patented drug – a so-called immediate solution for his animal. If that weren’t enough, the FDA has approved Prozac, a super mind-altering drug prescribed for dogs, as well as many common human medications that are now used in pets. These include chemotherapy drugs used to treat cancer. Alongside this, common pet ailments such as arthritis, diabetes, heart disease and depression are also treated with harmful drugs without even mentioning the natural health care of pets as a healing property.
Needless to say, pet welfare is now declining rapidly and pet owners really need to be vigilant in their pet health practices and look for a better option to cure their pet’s illness. Any vet who has been in the practice for more than a decade will tell you that the result of the Big Pharma takeover is that dogs, cats and other animals are sicker than ever. These vets have noticed an increase in liver disease, nervous system disorders, cancer and diabetes. This is because pets are regularly poisoned by bad pet food and medicines. Even popular flea and tick medications alone are highly toxic to your pet’s liver.
The influence of big pharma has made veterinary medicine a joke right next to the system of conventional medicine for humans. The goal of medicine is no longer to heal someone. The goal now is to benefit from treating diseases without actually curing or preventing them. Why should they do this? Connect the dots. To benefit from repeat business, and a lucrative one at that! Let me not even go into the rates that vets charge these days, particularly in emergency care. The fees are outrageous! And the audacity of vet clinics that take advantage of people’s kindness when rescuing a $500 pet. for saline! These vet clinics exploit human kindness for high profit. How many people do you think will now have no choice but to think twice before rescuing a wounded or helpless animal?
So what do pet owners do when faced with a situation where their beloved pet needs medical attention? Luckily, there is another path to pet well-being with holistic practitioners in veterinary medicine. These practitioners are more numerous in veterinary medicine than in human medicine.
Why the Pet Wellness Path of Natural Pet Health Care is the Right Direction.
1. Holistic vets understand nutrition, herbs, homeopathy and other natural modalities.
2. Holistic veterinarians prescribe solutions and treat animals in ways that are forbidden in human medicine – because these solutions have a silver lining – they work!
3. Holistic veterinarians more often do business out of love for animals and a belief in a natural healing system. This makes them humans as opposed to donkeys who are always trying to bolster their financial future by exploiting sick animals and pet owners’ love for their pets.
My dog’s holistic veterinarian, Dr. Andrew Jones, once made a statement that I have never forgotten. “Any vet who thinks a dog is depressed and needs antidepressants should honestly have their license revoked and banished to a remote island riddled with sexually aggressive baboons!” I wish I could somehow show you the look on his face when he said that and how, although I laughed at his choice of words, I also thought – this guy is seriously angry at the situation. No wonder he’s one of those vets who do what he does out of love for animals and his belief in natural medicine.
When we look at the frightening toxicity of pet food combined with pharmaceutical medicine, the future of mainstream pet wellness looks pretty bleak. Many pet food brands that claim to be “scientific” brands are really just crap. Only pet food companies offer truly healthy, non-toxic pet food.
Established veterinary practices boil down to nothing more than chemical abuse of dogs, cats and other animals. Unfortunately, this industry has stolen the ethics for profit and no longer has an interest in helping improve the quality of life for our pets. Nutrition has been discarded and replaced by a system of chemical invasion, resulting in a deterioration in long-term health. The same has been happening in human healthcare for years, which is why holistic practitioners in human and pet healthcare are speaking out and giving us another avenue of hope for ourselves and our pets.
Proper use of medicines
Animal health practices tell us it’s important to understand the other side of the coin for just a minute. Some chemical drugs play a role in the quality of veterinary care. For example:
1. Painkillers – play a useful but limited role.
2. Antibiotics – can be helpful in certain situations.
Be careful, because antibiotics, also in human medicine, are massively misused worldwide.
Be wary that treating dogs and cats with antidepressants, chemotherapy, diabetes drugs, statin drugs, osteoporosis drugs, and other similar chemical agents is absurd.
Make no mistake, most pet health problems can be prevented and cured with good nutrition. More problematic health ailments can be economically and safely resolved with herbal therapies and naturopathic modalities best known as natural pet healthcare.
Pet Wellness Things To Do – Now!
1. Switch to a healthy, natural and holistic pet diet. Prepare fresh meals from scratch whenever possible. dr Jones told me that pets shouldn’t be fed a diet of processed foods on a regular basis. Read the report: Pet food ingredients revealed
2. Make an appointment with a holistic veterinarian to find out if they are a more appropriate doctor for your pet. As government agencies attempt to revoke licenses for naturopathic veterinarians, holistic or naturopathic animal care professionals often do not have the same credentials as regular veterinarians. This is happening because Big Pharma owns state licensing agencies and naturopathic animal care professionals are a threat to their newfound gold mine. You will most likely have to look for naturopathic pet grooming experts yourself and ignore state licensing agencies. dr Jones told me that in his experience he had found that credentials were essentially useless. The more credentials a veterinarian has, the more deeply they are often subjected to a pharmaceutical approach to veterinary medicine. Please consider replacing your regular veterinarian with an expert in holistic or naturopathic animal care once your checkups are complete.
3. Go back to basics. Diet, exercise, disease prevention and natural health care for pets.
As in the world of dieting, don’t let the “miracle pill” lull you into a lull. What animals need, just like humans, is a potent diet and natural medicines from nature. Pet wellness means using natural pet health solutions, raw food and naturopathic animal health care.
Mike Adams makes some interesting points.
The main point of his article is to make YOU think about what is happening conventionally and question why.
1. Take matters into your own hands. Whether or not you seek the help of a holistic veterinarian, ask yourself if you are fully aware of all treatment options.
2. Find out about Natural Pet Health Care. You can go to school or take a home study course.
3. Vary up your pet’s diet – some raw, some homemade, and kibble. Add a quality supplement.
4. SPEND TIME WITH your dog and cat. We all too often forget the more important mental aspect of health.
5. The vaccine thing again… as little and as seldom as possible!!
