I commend you for posting this. I have 3 Hungarian Vizslas .1 male 12 yrs old, 1 female 6 yrs old and 1 deceased female (her sister).
My dogs are treated better than most children and we are very studious in learning everything we can about what is best for our dogs health. We had
our 2 females spayed and chipped when we acquired them. After what we have been through, I feel as if I have been blatantly betrayed by the dog food
companies and the vet industry. We just naturally trusted our vet when he told us to get the chips and, like most animal lovers out there, we feel
into the hypnotic illusion that the food that was being advertised was actually good for our pets. WOW!!!!! Were our eyes ever open when we started
One of my females started getting lumps in her lymph nodes at about 3 years old. They would come and go and we just thought it was"normal" since the
vet didn't seem to be too concerned about it. When the vaccinations came due, I was reluctant to get the shots worried that it might somehow
overload her system. The vet said it was nothing to worry about. Well, low and behold, our worst fears were realized. Her throat swelled up and she
had golf ball sized lumps in the back nodes of her legs. She also had the classic golf ball sized lump right at the spot of...you guessed it...her
We had to, after numerous vet visits, take her to an oncologist specialist that ran a number of very expensive tests on her and talked us into having
chemo to keep her symptoms to a minimum. 3 rounds of chemo
(which btw is the same protocol as humans) later, and countless $1000's of dollars, we had to suffer watching our dog go through some of the worst
things one can imagine. At that point, I really dug in and found out everything there was to know about dog cancer, dog food, vaccinations, etc. We
learned that almost everything we were doing was, in fact, making the cancer WORSE.
Here's what I found out. Vaccines are deadly to dogs, tap water is deadly to dogs, 99% of processed dog food is deadly to dogs, anything plastic is
deadly to dogs, fertilizer on your yard is deadly to dogs, carpet on the floor, paint on the garage floor, etc. etc. is deadly to dogs.
Most people have no idea what they are doing to their dogs by feeding them the "leading brand" dog food. If people only knew what dog food consisted
of, they would never give it to their dogs again. When I really dug and found out the truth, it made me sick to my stomach. When I found out what my
dog was going through by getting a vaccination, I literally cried.
There are many pages and forums out there for animal lovers to find out this info. The links are too numerous to list here. A good one to start with
is www.caninecancer.com . The rabbit hole is deep but how much does one cherish their pet?
To make a long story short, I ended up having some pretty strong words with my "oncologist" and was told that if I did things my way, my dog
wouldn't last 6 weeks. We changed everything about our dogs lifestyle and eating habits and refused ANY vaccination (it's legal to do so) and saw
our dogs health improve immediately. We changed to an "alternative vet" and did alot of different things from the mainstream. After about a year and
alot of love, our beloved dogs system just couldn't take it anymore. We were detoxing her of all the "poisons" in her body from "the canine
industry" and her heart finally just got overwhelmed. She passed away one night about 2:30 in my arms. Devastated doesn't even come close to
describing our feelings. I was ready to drive my pickup through the front doors of the illustrious oncologists building and see how many BMW payments
I could make him miss.
Our 2 other dogs eat what is called a "prey diet" and you cannot believe the change in them. The 12 year old male chases squirrels out in the
backyard like he is a puppy. They only get "pure water" and will turn their noses up at tap water...gee, I wonder why....and they NEVER get anything
but a real bone to chew on...no plastic for any reason.
My other female started limping the other day and I just passed it of to her pulling a muscle while chasing squirrels. Well guess what? She has a
small lump on her shoulder exactly where her chip is. We are getting it taken out immediately...
It is my fondest wish that for all of those folks out there that are involved in the mistreatment, misdiagnoses, the lab testing of and the disinfo
campaign of anything that is detrimental to helpless animals, I sincerely hope you suffer the most painful, drawn out and painful death that one could
imagine. You don't deserve to live a happy life. I would jump for joy to see on the news that the verichip building burned to the ground with the CEO
I will put as many links together as possible and list them in a later thread.
As you can see, I feel fairly passionate about my animals.
