Did you know that 50% of adult dogs will die from cancer? That's half - SHOCKING!
We should all be outraged at that figure, our four-legged friends should not be getting cancer, it's a manmade disease. In many cases, cancer can be treated but better that we protect our dogs from getting cancers rather than having to try and treat once the cancer is established.
First, let us look at prevention
The Dangers Of Passive Smoking In Pets.
The dangers of second-hand smoke for humans are well documented and are thankfully well known. Gone are the times of people being allowed to smoke wherever they please. A new and less smoky time is upon us.
But have you ever stopped to think about how a smoking habit can passively affect your pets?
There are several studies on the subject of pets and cigarette smoke most of them delivering a similar conclusion. Second and third-hand smoke is killing pets all over the world on a daily basis.
The studies have shown strong links between households that smoke and an increased risk of cancer for the animals that live in them. A study on cats found that cats that live in households that smoke are more than twice as likely to be diagnosed with lymphoma.
Vaccines compromise the immune system and often it is the first puppy vaccines that cause the most damage. Did you also know that there is no scientific evidence to support yearly boosters - it's nothing more than a revenue generator for the pharmaceutical companies and vets?
Cancerous tumours such as lymphoma, sarcoma and the devastating hemangiosarcoma are all linked to vaccine damage. The Top Ten Canine Health Problems related to vaccines.
As a rescue, we have seen an alarming increase in cancers, particularly hemangiosarcoma which by the time it becomes symptomatic, is too late to treat.
It isn't just the active components in the vaccine that cause problems but the adjuvants as well. Adjuvants like aluminium in vaccines is a known carcinogen.
We have exposed the vaccine hoax in depth and we strongly recommend that you do not ever vaccinate again. If you are taking your dog abroad, you only need a rabies vaccination to get a passport.
Do not leave your pets unprotected but instead use nosodes.
Spot On Treatments - Fleas, Ticks, Lice and Worms
If your dog has a healthy immune system not compromised by vaccines and is eating a proper diet - not junk kibble, the risk of cancers is dramatically reduced.
The companies that promote these toxins claim that they do not migrate into the body yet this has been disproved by the isolation of the compounds in body organs and it has been found in their urine and faeces. Frontline has been associated with thyroid cancers and altered thyroid function. Many of these products have been associated with death!
Stop using these toxic products which are marketed as safe - they are not and they are carcinogenic. This is a very lazy way of preventing/curing parasites but an enormous revenue generator for big pharma and vets.
There are many simple, natural ways of preventing parasites such as fleas, ticks, worms and mites.
Feed your dog a more natural healthy diet, not junk kibble which is full of pesticides and other rubbish. Would you want to eat boring brown crunchies every day? You should also be adding fresh fruit and vegetables to their diet - organic if possible to avoid ingestion of further toxins.
Beware newer products (neurotoxins) coming on the market which are even more toxic, especially Bravecto which have also been associated with many deaths and serious side effects. These are not acceptable side effects for eradicating parasites which can easily be prevented and controlled with safe and natural remedies. Simple, safe herbal remedies like Billy No Mates when used regularly, should prevent your pooch ever getting these nasty parasites again. Ground pumpkin seeds will get rid of intestinal worms including tapeworms.
Toxic Garden Products - Weedkillers and Lawn Treatments
Products like Roundup are readily available in garden centres and DIY stores, yet these are some of the most toxic chemicals we are exposed too. Lawn chemicals are particularly harmful to dogs as they will be absorbed through the dog's paws and through their skin if they lie down on the grass.
There really is no excuse for using these environmental, carcinogenic compounds.
'Studies (Abstract of Environmental Health 112(1): 171-6 (Jan. 2012), show a link between lawn chemicals and cancer in dogs. In this study, researchers identified 263 dogs with biopsy-confirmed canine malignant lymphoma (CML), 240 dogs with benign tumours, and 230 dogs undergoing surgeries unrelated to cancer. Then, they asked the pet owners to complete a 10-page questionnaire.
Scientists found that dogs with malignant lymphoma were 70 percent more likely to live in a home where professionally applied lawn pesticides had been used. Dogs with serious malignancy were also 170 percent more likely to come from homes where owners used chemical insecticides.'
Let us not forget that glyphosate made by the evil Monsanto, is one of the worst products on the market and it is staggering that it is still available given the health problems associated with it. Glyphosate poses serious health risks to you, your family and your pets. Health Problems Linked To Monsantos' Roundup.
Please Spay and Neuter But Not Too Soon
As a rescue, we have record numbers of dogs needing our help which is down to irresponsible owners/breeders allowing their dogs to have puppies when rescue centres are overflowing with unwanted dogs, many of who will be put to sleep as surplus to requirement as there simply are not enough homes to adopt these poor dogs.
All dogs should, therefore, be spayed or neutered to prevent unwanted puppies, many of which will end up in rescue eventually.
Spaying too early has been linked to increasing cancer rates, namely osteosarcoma in both males and females. In large pure breed dogs, studies have shown an increase in the risk of bone cancer that was twice that of dogs that were not neutered.
Ideally, dogs should not be neutered before 18 months and bitches should not be spayed until after their first season.
Many people think a bitch should be allowed to have one litter - we disagree. We cannot cope with the current influx of unwanted dogs without adding more, so please be a responsible owner and do not allow your dog to breed.
Natural Household Cleaners, Detergents and Soaps
Look at the labels on any common household cleaners, detergents, soaps etc and you will find a list of compounds that you won't recognise - most are toxic. When these compounds come into contact with your skin or your pet's skin, they are absorbed, some get into the air and can be breathed in.
Natural cleaners are not only safer for you, your family and your pets but they are better for the environment, they are also cheaper yet every bit as effective as commercial products.
Making your own cleaning products is fun and rewarding and many are all purpose so you will need less - which saves space.
Basic essentials are brewed white vinegar which is an amazing non-toxic cleaner and can be used for just about any surface including floors, worktops, toilets and wooden furniture - yes it can be used as a polish.
Instead of commercial washing powder for your dog's bedding, much safer alternatives are soap nuts or make your own washing powder from borax, soap flakes and washing soda. The good thing is that it doesn't have that awful powerful, synthetic perfume to assault your dog's sensitive sense of smell. Borax is also a pest deterrent and will get rid of any fleas or mites living in their bedding.
Bicarbonate of soda is not only a brilliant cleaner but is great for getting rid of nasty pongs - very useful if your dog has an accident on your carpets or furniture.
As a preventative measure give your dog 2-4 apricot seeds a day, they must be the raw kernels which contain Amygdalin often known as vitamin B17. The ones sold in health food shops are often roasted and this process destroys all the goodies. You must grind them down as they won't work whole. You can sprinkle the powder onto your dog's food.
If your dog has cancer you should try 3-6 kernels per day and give your dog a natural diet high in protein. Do not give kibble or any other commercial dog food as it is generally high in sugar which feeds cancers. In addition, give your dog supplements of Vitamin C which helps the B17 work better as does zinc and B15.
Cancer Free Dogs - 'More and more dogs are getting cancer and this trend is very alarming to me. I know that in many cases cancer can be treated and dogs can become cancer free. I also know that dogs can be protected from getting cancer and I want to share that with dog owners from all over the world'.
Chemotherapy is a very profitable industry but these poisons not only destroy the immune system, kill good cells as well as cancer cells, but they can also cause cancer, Often these drugs are used as nothing more than palliative treatment.
“Over 75% of the oncologists polled said that if they had cancer they would never use the same chemotherapy they prescribe for their patients on themselves because of the ineffectiveness of chemotherapy and its unacceptable degree of toxicity.” Read more.
There are articles that try to scaremonger about cyanide in apricot kernels which is nonsense. Cyanide occurs naturally in many foods such as strawberries, beans, nuts, fruit seeds, grasses and grains. Here are the facts about The Cyanide Connection.
Think you live in a free country? It is the intention of the unelected EU to ban raw bitter apricot kernels. Even if we do exit the EU, the UK will impose the same legislation. After all, they wouldn't want you having any inexpensive cures that cannot be patented by big pharma. Get some while you can from WellGood.
Cannabis Oil - Cancer Cure
Despite the evidence to support the medical benefits of marijuana, in many countries, it is still a criminal offence to possess it. Strange that they would criminalise such an amazing plant which is essentially a weed. Why is it not an offence to grow nettles and dock leaves?
I guess big pharma want to make sure that their toxic drugs are dispensed freely to generate even more billions for them.
Thankfully, laws are changing across the world as more evidence of the amazing therapeutic benefits of this weed are proven.
We also recommend that you watch Rick Simpsons' documentary Run From The Cure - see below. Rick has done much to spread information around the world about the amazing benefits of cannabis oil and how it cures cancers - even very aggressive ones. His website is Phoenix Tears where you can find further information, videos and books.
Please note that hemp oil is not the same as cannabis oil
Curcumin For Cancer In Dogs
"A groundbreaking new study published in the journal Anticancer Research reveals that one of the world’s most extensively researched and promising natural compounds for cancer treatment: the primary polyphenol in the ancient spice turmeric known as curcumin, has the ability to selectively target cancer stem cells, which are at the root of cancer malignancy, while having little to no toxicity on normal stem cells, which are essential for tissue regeneration and longevity.” – GreenMedInfo.com This means that unlike chemotherapy, which will destroy regular healthy cells, curcumin will only go after cancer cells in you and your pets!"
Curcumin is probably the most important herb you could add to your pet's diet. Read full article
The Cancer Treatment Protection Racket
The Cancer Act 1939 and similar legislation around the world gives orthodox cancer treatment an undeserved monopoly, ensuring that ineffective but profitable treatments like chemotherapy and radiotherapy can never be challenged by more effective alternative treatments.
