Why Big Pharma Are Targeting Your PetWhy Big Pharma and Vets Are Targeting Our Pets?

It's a sad fact of life that we have seen the lifespan of our pets decrease dramatically over the last 2 decades and that dogs are no longer dying of old age but are dying of disease.

Our pets have now become the target of greedy drug companies and unscrupulous vets who are more interested in profit than the health and well being of our pets.

So whilst vets and big Pharma profit, they are making our pets sick and shortening their lives. Vaccines and toxic spot-on treatments are two of the worst for compromising the health of our pets but there are many others.

Why do vets get away with what they are doing? Well, it's simple because they don't have to fear being sued for large sums of money because, in law, pets are classed as property so have very little monetary value. So dogs dying of disease, dogs dying younger are simply collateral damage to them.

Be informed and don't believe everything your vet tells you - question everything. Better still, adopt a holistic approach to your pet's health and use natural remedies where possible.

Don't let your pet be a target of big pharma.

Autism Symptoms in Pets Rise as Pet Vaccination Rates RiseAutism Symptoms in Pets Rise as Pet Vaccination Rates Rise

Just to put things in perspective, the animal vaccine industry has been valued at $6.27 billion in 2015 and, at a calculated annual growth rate of 6.9 per cent, it is expected to rise to $11.40 billion by 2024.

So vaccines are a very lucrative business indeed and if you think they are really concerned about your pet's health, think again as this is nothing more than lining the pockets of big Pharma and vets.
As a rescue, we have seen the lifespan of GSD's reduce by a third in the last 30 years as well as seeing big increases in behavioural problems such as aggression.

Over 50% of dogs are now getting cancer which is an entirely manmade disease with hemangiosarcoma the number 1 killer. GSD's are particularly prone to vaccine damage and we see an ever-increasing number of dogs with autoimmune diseases especially skin disorders, persistent ear problems and sensitivities to foods. 

Please educate yourselves and at least stop yearly vaccinations which are making your dogs sick and shortening their lives.
This is evidence backed, here is the scientific research into vaccine-induced autism in dogs.  

Pet vaccines are costly, toxic and dangerousWhy are our pets dying younger?

Remember a time when pets used to die of old age? Well, not any more thanks to greedy vets and big pharma pushing toxic vaccines and pet food manufacturers for giving us junk food kibble which has little if any nutritional benefit for your pet. Over 60% of dogs are now getting cancer yet dogs should not be getting cancer which is a manmade disease.

Ask your vet - where is the evidence to support yearly vaccines and where is the evidence to support the use of neurotoxins to prevent parasites?

Pet vaccines are costly, toxic, dangerous and unproven.

GSD's have weaker immune systems than most other pedigree breeds so carry on giving these toxins and your pet can look forward to severe allergies, seizures, anaemia and cancer. The number 1 killer of cancer in GSD's is now cancer with hemangiosarcoma one of the most prevalent.

Why are our dogs dying early?

Anal Furunculosis

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.

cancer in dogs - prevention and curesCancer in Dog - Prevention and Cures

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.

Why Vets Are Getting Away With MurderWhy Vets Are Getting Away With Murder?

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?

When The Damage Is Done

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.'

bilbo the puppy receives nosodes instead of toxic vaccinesCampaign To Expose Vaccine Dangers

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

gsd cross lyra has never been vaccinated, she is protected with nosodesChris Day Alternative Vet

'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 causes seizures and death in dogsBravecto Flea and Tick control - WARNING

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.

'Similar to other neonicotinoids: sickness extended across gastrointestinal, neurological, endocrine, and renal turmoil to multi-organ toxicity/failure, euthanasia and death.'

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

scientific evidence of the dangers of vaccines to our petsThe Purdue Vaccination Studies and Auto-antibodies

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.'
