Health Articles About Dogs
Over the years I have seen many cases of anal furunculosis, its horrible and mainstream treatments rarely work long term and you need a mortgage to cover the costs.
Although anal furunculosis (AF) can affect other breeds, it is a chronic progressive immune-mediated inflammatory disease that is most commonly seen in middle-aged or older German Shepherds.
AF affects the area surrounding the anus resulting in ulceration, inflammation and fistulas.
It is my belief that the increasing number of autoimmune problems that we are seeing more and more in our pets, is as a direct result of vaccinations.
Did you know that a staggering 50% of adult dogs will die from cancer? That's half which is truly 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.
Veterinary surgeons and the pharmaceutical industry profit greatly from cancer and both play on our fears of the dreaded disease, which will end up costing you a small fortune and ultimately the life of your much-loved pet.
We offer you advice on how to avoid some of the common things that increase your dog's risk of getting cancer, how to optimise your dog's immune system and what to do if your dog is diagnosed with cancer.

The veterinary profession is broken, and it isn't about to change anytime soon. Our pets are being over-serviced, and we're getting fleeced. We pay for the unnecessary vaccinations, the overly-processed, synthetic prescription pet foods that contain ingredients from China, and we pay for drugs and chemicals that are damaging to the immune system.
After shelling out for these services, pet owners need to keep their wallets open because, sooner or later, the chronic disease caused by these products like allergies and cancer will start to kick in and require treatment. They threaten the quality and quantity of life for our companion animals and many of these diseases are caused by the products vets tell us are safe and effective.
The sad fact is some common veterinary practices are harming our dogs. Vets today have too many drugs, vaccines and chemicals at their disposal and they're overly willing to dispense them. The worst part is that they hold no accountability for their actions. In short, they can and do ignore vaccine label recommendations or prescribe harmful or unnecessary drugs and we pet owners have no recourse.Why Are Vets Getting Away With Murder?
Catherine O'Driscoll is the founder of Canine Health Concern, which spearheads research and education by and for dog lovers to promote canine good health.
The author of What Vets Don't Tell You About Vaccines and Shock to the System, she has helped to popularise natural feeding and complementary healthcare options among dog lovers.
"The majority of people are ‘codependents’ in psycho- speak. Trusting souls, they don’t like to question authority and don’t value their own instincts. Catherine O’Driscoll, a campaigner against vaccines, believes they should..."
"When I started reporting vaccine reactions back in 1994, a limited amount of research was available. It isn’t limited anymore. What is needed now is for vets to stop giving unnecessary annual shots, to start upholding the truth, and for pet owners to become aware of the truth and honour the trust their dog's place in them."
'It is a sad fact that we live in a world where we can’t trust apparently respectable business people and healthcare providers to put our dogs’ health first. We need to wise up - our dogs depend on us.'
These two puppies Bilbo Baggins and Lyra were born in rescue after we took on a female GSD who unbeknown to us, was expecting. Bilbo and Lyra have never been vaccinated, instead, have received 'nosodes' to build up their immunity.
Nosodes are a safe, cheap alternative to toxic vaccinations which are peddled by big pharma and veterinary practices and which are nothing more than revenue generators.
The first vaccine usually given as a very young puppy is probably the most dangerous.
Chris Day is probably the most well known homoeopathic vet - 'Sadly, the acute-onset problems and the chronic issues can be set up by even the very first vaccine event, in a susceptible individual. We have even witnessed puppy and kitten deaths after the first dose.' Guidelines on Nosodes

'No manufacturer will guarantee the safety of vaccination. Quite apart from dangerous and life-threatening anaphylactic reactions, that can occur within hours of the injection, transient fevers and malaise and injection site lumps or abscesses, there can be chronic, late-onset problems. As a referral centre, dealing mainly with troublesome chronic disease, our own research suggests that over 80% of chronic illness that we see starts within three months of a vaccination event.
Such problems include skin problems, allergy, atopy, autoimmune problems, heart murmur, meningitis, encephalitis, paralysis, nervousness, excitability, epilepsy and seizures, CDRM, cardiomyopathy, colitis, chronic diarrhoea, ear problems, 'virus' in horses, sarcoid, COPD and headshaking. It may even be that syringomyelia may be triggered by vaccination. Proving an association in any single case is not possible but the overall statistics are frightening.'
Bravecto is a fairly new product to the market which is being heavily promoted for the control of parasites such as fleas and ticks. This product is being dished out like smarties by vets in many countries to unsuspecting dog owners who are not informed of the serious side effects that are associated with this product.
Bravecto is a neurotoxin that stays in the dog's system for 3 months, the side effects may be cumulative.
There are many simple natural remedies for preventing and treating parasites without having to put your dog's life at risk.
There is a Facebook page which gives further information on this toxic drug Does Bravecto Kill Dogs
For the sake of a few visitors, are seizures and death acceptable side effects? We don't think so
Tell your vet you do not want this product
This is pretty damning scientific evidence that proves the damage that vaccines are doing to our pets and us. Dr Andy Maniotis - a cancer researcher - says that vaccines cause cancer and he is finding the same autoantibodies in human patients. If you can't be bothered to read it all, at least take this on board
'Not only are annual boosters unnecessary, but they subject the pet to potential risks such as allergic reactions and immune-mediated haemolytic anaemia.
In plain language, veterinary schools in America, plus the American Veterinary Medical Association, have looked at studies to show how long vaccines last and they have concluded and announced that annual vaccination is unnecessary.'
Shocking - 'In America, in an attempt to mitigate the problem, they’re vaccinating cats in the tail or leg so they can amputate when cancer appears.'
