Do You Know The Myths of Pet Health & Care!

 

Do You Know The Myths

of Pet Health & Care!

You would think that today, in our high tech world we

would find it easy to acquire accurate and solid information

for our pet’s health and welfare. The internet allows us

almost instant access to what we believe is cutting edge,

accurate, up-to-date information. The reality is that finding

the truth can be more difficult.

There are numerous sources, many

of which are based on opinion.

They are designed to specifically

to sell products and concept, not

the facts. When you are searching

for answers concerning your pets’

health and well-being, do you want

an opinion or real answers based

on truthful facts?

We are going to dispel a few of the

most basic myths which have a

profound effect on your pets’ health

and well-being. Once you know

these facts, you will be armed with

the knowledge to ask the proper

questions of those providing care

and advice for your pet.

Myth #1 Dogs and cats have

evolved and are now omnivores…

This is absolutely false. According

to taxonomists, the specific

scientists that study and classify

biological life, dogs and cats are

indeed carnivores. While being

domesticated and having adapted

to our lives, they definitely have not

evolved into being processed kibble

feeders. This notion is pushed on us as a false marketing

concept by manufacturers and pet food dealers selling low

quality, high profit foods that are unfit as a diet for most

forms of life.

Myth #2 Real, fresh, unprocessed foods are dangerous to

both ourselves and our pets…To believe this, one must first

ask how life itself existed prior to pasteurization. The truth

is that every creature on the planet eats raw foods except

man. Only man and those animals that were fed processed

diets suffer from the ever growing list of new diseases

and health challenges. This concept is encouraged, with

the help of several political government agencies, to allow

the use of dangerous, low quality and contaminated foods

into the food chain. It also allows for the addition of toxic

additives to extend shelf life and appearance of perishable

products. Nature has created everything we need in a

natural form.

Myth #3 Regular medical care, treatments and vaccines

are required…

While regular evaluations from health specialists are

beneficial for you and your pets’ well-being, treating with

toxic and dangerous drugs and vaccines must be weighed

against the risks they pose. The majority of our worldwide

pet population is not following our regimen of “annuals”

resulting in fewer health challenges and greater longevity.

The problem is that we confuse medical care with health.

Medicine today, unfortunately is mostly profit motivated.

Myth #4 Only a professional can guide your health

decisions…Humans and pets are born with an innate ability

to survive and thrive. This natural instinct is evident on a

daily, moment-to-moment basis. We realize not to jump

off a cliff because we’ve learned even a small fall hurts.

Our pets sense things such as changes

in weather and danger. We also have

that ability to sense when something

is wrong with our pets. Since eightyfive

percent of all health challenges

are related to diets, changing their

diets should be paramount.

While this list only focuses on a

few of the myths, logical factual

information will put YOU in charge

of your pets’ health and care. This

approach is applicable to ourselves as

well. Remember, health is paramount

to a great life and that’s the way we

see it!
