Cancer affects 1 in 3 dogs.
I know many of you have suffered losing your dog this way as I have and it goes without saying it’s heartbreaking.
Truthfully, I have a hard time writing about it because it brings up memories of my Eskie Baggins and I find myself
typing with tears streaming down my face.
But, in recognition of Canine Cancer Month, I feel compelled to offer you a tip that veterinarians say may help
prevent this dreadful disease.
Did you know the number one thing you can do to prevent cancer is to make sure your dog has a healthy immune system?
That may sound obvious.
But, the truth is, “establishment” vet care and the decades old pet food industry have contributed mightly to the
onslaught of serious illnesses like cancer in our beloved pets.
This may sound extreme.
I’m certainly not bashing veterinarians –they are a dedicated bunch of animal lovers like you and I. But some of the practices we’ve all taken for granted – like annual vaccines– may be a possible link to canine cancer.
Some vets have already adopted a "less is more" vaccine policy. It was through taking Baggins to a new vet that I first learned annual vaccines didn't need to be annual .
