Natural Pet Care Can Help Enhance and Prolong Your Pet's Life
Our animal companions are not exempt from experiencing many of the same physical and medical conditions that we face. Our furry friends also experience their own set of challenges and discomforts.
Through my conversations with my pet's veterinarian, I have learned that the rate of cancer in dogs and cats is increasing at an alarming rate... a rate that is significantly higher than the rate we as humans have been facing. Arthritis and other medical conditions are also on the rise. Part of the increase in diagnosed cancers and other medical issues may be a result in the improvements in the technology that veterinarians are using. I, however, strongly believe that much of it is attributed to the chemicals, byproducts, rancid oils, spoiled foods and fillers that are used in mass-marketed pet food. To add insult to injury, most Americans give their pets highly processed treats and use synthetic shampoos, conditioners, and harsh, carcinogenic flea repellents. With our increasingly busy lifestyles, the average canine probably also gets less exercise than a couple decades ago.
According to 2005 U.S. statistics from the American Heart Association, approximately 24% of men and 18% of women are smokers. That's almost 1 in 4 men, and almost 1 in 5 women. We're all pretty aware of the effect of second-hand smoke on our loved ones (For information, see The Truth About Secondhand Smoke presented by the American Heart Association). The hazards of second-hand smoke effect our pets as well.
