Health Overview - Vaccines - Diet
We formed Canine Health Concern to discover why so many dogs are ill and dying years before their time. The aim was to find a way to have healthy, long-lived dogs. Thousands of dog owners worldwide have found the way, and rarely need to take their dogs to a vet – by following these simple principles. Ill health is caused by:
Our practice of choosing mates for domestic animals has meant that the likelihood of passing on genetic defects has increased. Animals in the wild choose mates using their sense of smell. They seek good health in their mates, and are looking for an individual who is genetically dissimilar to themselves. When breeding for the show ring, we’re doing the opposite. Perhaps we should think about this. Proper husbandry can, however, minimise the chance of these faults showing themselves. For example, hip dysplasia is thought to be genetic, but research shows that it can be avoided with proper diet and vitamin C supplementation. Vaccines are known to make dogs develop autoantibodies to their own DNA – so by minimising or even avoiding vaccines, we can perhaps help dogs over generations.
There is no doubt that chemicals such as pesticides, weed killers, fungicides and domestic products like air fresheners and cleaning products, can cause cancer and other illnesses. This includes many flea control treatments which can cause cancer. We think they’re safe – but they may not be. Canine Health Concern brings information to light about these products, and finds safer natural alternatives.
Conventional vets offer steroids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), and antibiotics when less harmful alternatives might suffice. Don’t get us wrong – these drugs can be life-saving. But sometimes natural alternatives might be better. Canine Health Concern researches the options for you, and points you towards safer products. Complementary therapies available for dogs include chiropractic, EFT, acupuncture, homoeopathy, kinesiology, hands-on healing, nutritional therapy, TTouch, and so much more. We’ve seen these therapies work wonders for our dogs, and we’re happy to share our experiences. Become a member of Canine Health Concern, and take action to see your dogs thrive.
Bacterial and viral invasion
Just like humans, dogs can be affected by bacteria and viruses. We believe that the best thing you can do for your dogs in this respect is to feed appropriately to boost their immune systems, and explore the many natural options that can help your dog withstand disease.
Too much stress, whether you’re human or animal, can lead to ill health. Many of the complementary therapies help to reduce stress, and many of them work well for dogs. As a Canine Health Concern member, you’ll receive regular updates that address the stress issue, and we even offer workshops to help you minimise stress for you and your dogs.
Our dogs are over-vaccinated, and vaccines come with horrendous side-effects. Click on the link at the top of this page for more information – because the vaccine damage problem is something you have the power to do something about. It’s hard to make decisions when you’re simply doing what other people tell you to do – so we urge you to make use of the books, articles, newsletters and other resources that are available, so that you can make choices from knowledge rather than pressure.
If your dogs aren’t getting the vital nutrients they need, then illness is sure to follow. Click on the link at the top of this page for more information on canine diet. If you do this for your dog, he is likely to reward you with many years of companionship. There are also many books available to help you with your dog’s diet, detailed on our web site and in our newsletters. It’s not difficult to feed your dogs a healthy diet, but it helps to be informed.
