Great thread smelygril. A subject I am well versed on.
The lawn fertilizer may be one of the least of the problems.
Years ago, I was going thru some terrible cancer issues with my dogs. After much research and going thru all the mainstream vets recommendations and
canine oncologists advice (very expensive and not effective, to say the least) I found out that about 90% of what we subject our animals to is
Take a walk thru a dogs day and see where you stand.
An indoor dog sleeps on a "dogbed" made of some sort of artificial ingredients..not grass.
They get up and walk around on carpet or hardwood floors that have chemicals in them and are made from artificial ingredients...not grass.
They run around outside in the fertilized yard looking for the perfect place to poo...not natural, wild grass.
They stop by the plastic water bowl on their way inside and decide to get a drink of good old fashioned clean water straight from the public water
system, laced with all sorts of harmful chemicals...not fresh water from a stream.
They come inside and walk down the hall towards the kitchen and decide to scratch their ass on the paint covered sheetrock wall.
They are then fed food from a bag or can that has ingredients in it that if I told you what was really in there, it would make you throw up and you
would never feed it to them again. (The research will make you cry if you are an animal lover)
They then decide to take a nice after breakfast snooze in the sun, on the carpet...not grass.
You let them out for a while to run around and they sniff everything in sight. Gas can, fert. bags. car tire, hose, other dogs rancid poop, they might
eat some cat crap, maybe check out a dead animal in the yard. Needless to say, the old dog snout gets quite the workout. Unfortunately, their nose,
which in some cases (dogs) can detect 1 in 3 million parts of substances, gets filled with a plethora of toxins and it goes straight to thier
bloodstream where the lymph glands try and filter it out. This is usually seen as bumps and lumps in the neck, throat and hindleg area.
As you sit outside enjoying a wonderful evening, your beloved canine is right their by your side licking the bug spray off your leg. The kids throw
him some fritos and maybe some leftover pizza as a treat and the dog seems happy as heck.
There is a war going on inside of his body as he lays down to go to sleep for the night......
Dogs are very interesting animals when studied closely. Their bodies are amazing machines that work in incredible ways, especially when they are
closer to their wild origins. From what I have observed, their water and food are the cause of most of the canine cancer these days and all the other
stuff just adds fuel to the fire.
I personally believe that by focusing on their ingestion of food and water, they are better able to stave off lots of the other toxins they are hit
with. I lost 3 of mine to various cancers before I made massive changes and now I have 2 perfectly happy, healthy babes that will be with me for a
long time. Taking the time and effort to make them happy makes me happy as well.
"May your nose always be cool and moist"...lol
