Stop The Abuse and Stop Making Them Suffer

Dr. Andrew Jones with a very special friend

Andrew was, as a young boy, an animal lover and caregiver for the family farm animals and pets.  As he grew to be a young man somewhere in Canada he decided to become a veterinarian. In Vet school he saw many things that did not make sense in the common sense way of things. The one thought he had recurrently was to “stop the abuse and stop making them suffer”.

He saw many other things that troubled him in the honest way of things. I am introducing him in this way because I really don’t know his whole story, but just a few of the basics.

I know that he changed his mind about the “normal” veterinarian care he was administering in his vet practice and according to the school of animal medicine and surgery that he had graduated from.

After becoming and filling the shoes of his original calling, Andrew Jones, DVM, or Dr. Jones decided to become more true to the pledge of his heart, and more loyal to all of his clients, all animals; those animals that he had grown up and loved so dearly. He guaranteed that he would stop the abuse and stop making them suffer for the sake of wearing the title of a doctor or veterinarian.

He would have to be an extreme and true animal lover in order to go to, and graduate from 4 to 6 years of college, and then another 4 years of veterinary school while he tended to all kinds of animals;  peoples’ pets, and other breeds of animals such as those from the farms and even possibly a few wild animals once in a while.

But there are thousands of souls like Andrew Jones who head off to college, grad school, and then animal medical school every year, because  they love animals and want to be able to help them, right?  But these thousands of people who truly love animals get to animal medical school and kind of look at one another when they are told to prolong the life of the animal at any expense.

Especially if the expense belongs to that of the animals owner.  And believe me, there are all kinds of ways to get people to pay for this kind of medical treatment, even if the medical care that they have to mortgage their home for or they are forced to take a 29% loan on a credit card, doesn’t always work.

the vet who killed my dog

I have to tell about my sweet little girl who, because of her breed, had many health issues. One of them was her itchy dermatitis skin. So itchy for her that it drove her crazy and me insane trying to find something that would work for her. We were determined that in order to help her or any other dog with dermatitis, that we had to stop the abuse and stop making them suffer by continuing to give them medications that did nothing in the long run but to cause life threatening problems; she had been on cortisone for at least two years.

So I did everything this vet told me to do. She got clean bedding every night. I bought her the prescription diet that looked like it was made out of tree grindings and glue and it had no animal flavoring or smell to it but cost almost $4 a can. The vet had her taking cortisone which we all know is not something that can be taken for very long.

I was taking her to the vet at Pet Smart; the big box pet clinic inside of the store. They talked me into purchasing doggy insurance because of her illness. But in my heart, I had no idea that what the vet was doing; but it became obvious that the treatment was totally wrong for her. And undoubtedly she was treating other dogs the same way, if this is how she treated dermatitis.

Then the vet assistant mentioned that there was a pill that could be given to her that totally took away all the itchiness. She guaranteed that my baby would never itch again after she started taking this new medication.  Hmm, I wondered how come our all knowledgeable vet didn’t come up with this idea.

We asked the vet about it and she told us that she could give it to our baby girl but probably not until she had totally stopped taking the cortisone. So we couldn’t wait to give it a try and decided we had to put her through this horrible bout of itchiness to get her to a spot where she could start the new medication. She was going to be miserable coming off of the cortisone.

But then when we asked the vet the best way to go about it, she said she had done some further investigating and that we could go ahead and give her the first dose of this medication and that it didn’t matter about her current medications.

That night I watched my sweet little girl just lying there, not moving, not wanting to get up, not wanting to go for a walk. This was not my girl so I called the vet and told them something was wrong; they needed to see her right away. But they explained that it might just be a side effect of the medication and to just keep watchful eye on her.

my dog died last week
My Staffy Terrier

Later, just before bed, my son said come on girl, let’s go potty and he made her get up to go out back to go potty. She was moving very slowly and when she got to the porch, she fell over and she was dying, gasping for breath. My heart was wrenching in my chest; this wasn’t supposed to happen.

We wrapped our girl up in a blanket and carried her out to the car and to the ER Vet right up the street but by the time we got her there, she was gone. She was only 7 years old and a beautiful little girl.

Not a day goes by that I don’t think of her and she is one of the main reasons that I have chosen to write this blog. If we had only been more cognizant of the fact that these vets are in it for pushing the medications, making the big bucks for the store they work for.

If only I had known that there were vets out there like Dr. Jones. My poor little girl was probably frightened out of her head and I feel very responsible for her death. Needless to say, I have not replaced her yet; it has been almost five years ago now.

The reason for telling this story about my dog and what the vets did or didn’t do, is that I want you’ll out there to know that there are vets out there that don’t have a clue about real veterinarian medicine and shouldn’t be practicing. The vet assistant had more information that the DVM had. She was clueless it seemed.

A new medication comes out and there was too little information about it ‘we[ l to stop the abuse and stop making them suffer. My little girl had to die because of the vet and big pharmacy.

The vet from the pet megastore Pet Smart was one of those big box vets and I did accuse her of getting her veterinarian license on the internet instead of going to medical school like Dr. Jones did; putting in countless hours to become a vet.

It seemed like this woman at the Wellness clinic hadn’t done anything except to experiment on my dog and I did accuse her of killing my dog! She wanted me to come in and speak with her but I was afraid that I would attack her had she been in front of me at that time. My heart was hurting so bad that I could barely breath.

While owning his vet clinic, Dr. Jones witnessed what he thought were many different “atrocities” such as what had killed my dog, taking place against animals.  Even while he was trying to maintain the “oath” he had taken while in school he had guaranteed to stop the abuse and stop making them suffer because of not enough information when new drugs were released.

In order for him to obtain his veterinarian license, he had been forced to learn and follow through with a few practices that he thought as questionable. He couldn’t help but feel that there was something desperately wrong with trying to prolong a life when what should have been was the end of any “normal animals’ life”.

This wasn’t necessarily caring for sick animals who still had long viable lives yet to live, or those that had been abused or mistreated by an owner either. These things he worried about and felt forced to do, were even more awful.

He then developed a new motto for his vet health care;

stop the abuse and stop making them suffer

Like the time when he felt forced to prolong the life of a fifteen year old, neutered, male dog that had been diagnosed with bone cancer.

This dog had lived a long and happy life with his family and now he had bone cancer. The humane thing to do was to help end this dogs’ life, quietly, and with no pain.

But while in school, he had been taught that instead of ending the life of this old family pet, that as a doctor, he should suggest to the family that they amputate the dog’s back leg and then while the elderly male dog was recovering from that surgery, he should also put the animal through a long series of the cancer killing chemotherapy treatments that “might” prolong its life.

The family of this poor dog, especially the kids (they loved their dog) would  then be forced to make a very expensive choice and it wouldn’t sit right if they didn’t chose to make the more costly choice.

As an animal care giver and growing up on the family farm, Andrew had learned that “ending the life of an animal who had lived a long and purpose filled life”, was not only the humane thing to do, it was also the right thing to do.

Even now and even though he was an esteemed colleague with a highly sought after position in the field of animal care and surgery, he found he also had to make a decision. One that found him dangling between a rock and a hard place.  He found that he could no longer pressure people like you and I to spend every penny that we had, or to even go into debt, to put our pets through an impossible life saving journey.

He could no longer, in good conscience ask people like us to put our faith in him to make our decisions or to keep spending money for his unneeded talents.

And so it was with Andrew Jones DVM who lives in his home town somewhere in Canada.  But he has changed his position from Veterinarian, Dr. Andrew Jones DVM, to a Naturopathic Veterinarian.

Yes, he did move from his position as a DVM into Natural Animal Care and is now healing your dogs and cats today, many of them with only dog and cat acupressure.

Dr. Jones has also directed and added to his list of instructional videos for you and I to view and purchase, the largest acupressure instructional video to date.

In the video we are able to view how to perform acupressure on our dog or our cat, correctly. This includes all of the acupressure points for: asthma, arthritis, allergies, bloat, CPR, vomiting, diarrhea, pain, seizures, organ dysfunction, immune stimulation, anxiety and more. He uses these acupressure points on pets like ours to heal them and more often than not, acupressure is the only thing needed. No pills, no syrups, no surgeries, nothing but acupressure.

This was Dr. Jones’ way to stop the abuse and stop making them suffer and it works better than any pill or surgery.

He offers this instructional video as a “14 week” acupressure training course. Easy to follow along as Dr. Jones leads us through each of the pressure points while showing us how it affects our pets as we apply the treatment. We couldn’t ask for a better piece of training.

Kona passed away; he was the family dog

Stop the abuse and stop making them suffer! Wouldn’t you like to understand exactly how this acupressure could help your pet who has been diagnosed with degenerative joint disease or arthritis as we know it?

This is only an example of how to use acupressure and the benefits that your pet will get from using it! It is not a diagnosis, it is not a prescription for any form of drug or surgery.

is your pooch in pain
Oh my aching back legs!

But it is a small thing that you and I can learn to heal our pets completely by administering. It is a way to help our pet and alleviate much of the pain that they are enduring with the arthritis they are suffering from!

You can “stop the abuse and stop making them suffer” yourself! You love them right? Would you put your spouse or kids through this kind of pain if you could do something about it?

What would you do now if you had a pet who was so crippled by arthritis and you know you are running out of the medication for him. elderly dog

But now it has been some time since you have taken your pet to your vet. However, this morning, the poor dog is so stiff, especially stiff and sore on his arthritic leg.

You need some more anti-inflammatory medication (pain killers) for the dog, but the vet won’t give you another prescription until you take your dog into see them, which costs another $75 for an exam by the vet. (Isn’t that the way it always is)?

Even when you take your dog to the vet; SURPRISE; the vet says that you need some “highly priced”, but he doesn’t say “potentially harmful” NON STEROIDAL ANTI-INFLAMMATORIES (NSAIDS). What can you do for your poor dog? Every time the dog takes a step, he lets out a little yelp. You don’t dare give him your own pain meds, or can you?

  • Well you could give the dog over-the-counter NSAIDS (this is Aspirin). Dog aspirin dosage is 325 mg for 40 lbs of animal, twice a day. CAUTION: Long term would be a NO-NO.
  • You could go to the VET, and pay the $75 to get the prescription you really might need; again, long term is a NO-NO.
  • Or you could learn basic acupressure which could be used daily, at any time, with no side effects; to alleviate all pain and stiffness.

According to Dr. Andrew, the easiest thing for you to do right here and now, especially if you don’t have the $75, and even if you did, you can’t get in to see the vet until next week? Become your own homeopathic vet for arthritis!

Besides the fact you can’t get in to see your vet, you find out that you have already maxed out your Care Credit Card (or is that Synchrony Bank now?) and you still owe a payment for this month so they won’t let you charge right now anyway; so what now? Become your own homeopathic vet and soothe your dog’s arthritic back legs yourself.

Or you have the money to make the extra payment but you already have something else important to use the $75 for. So unless you are extremely well to do (rich) and are sitting financially like most of us, there has to be another way.


Dr. Andrew is willing to tell and show you how to fix this situation, right now; here you go.

old dog with a walkerBut first, if the pain is severe, and you know it is if your dog is whimpering or if he is making noise when trying to walk? Go ahead and give them the aspirin (not Tylenol, not Advil). Again, that is 325 mg for 40 lbs of animal, twice a day. CAUTION: Long term would be a NO-NO. Besides, you won’t need it long term for this problem.

By using Acupressure on the “Aspirin Joint” you can stop the abuse and STOP making them suffer!

animated dog saying it's massage time

“The Aspirin Joint” is the easiest joint for you to locate and also the best way to start this kind of treatment. Your dog has arthritis in his back legs; at least this was the diagnosis. dog hock joint

On the outside webbing of a dog’s hock joint (the joint that is just a little above the back feet) There is a joint and a webbing of skin that you can easily feel at that joint. The webbing of skin is just above the actual joint. Put your index finger on the outer side of this web of skin using moderate pressure, hold only 60 seconds.

Do this 3 times a day for 7 days. This is the whole treatment and it was virtually pain free for your dog, emotionally relieving for you, and financially it was a MIRACLE.

Assess your dogs condition periodically to see if it has been helpful for your dog. I bet you will find that you have made your dog quite happy by simply spending a few minutes applying this technique every day.

Please take a moment to come back and let us know if this has been helpful for your dog(s). We are very anxious to hear from you.

Canine Breeds and Common Ailments


canine breeds and common ailments

I’ve been wanting to tell you about an article that I read on canine breeds and common ailments .  It pays to get educated early on, before you bring home that new pure-breed of the dog that you have always wanted.

So it’s time in your life for a puppy; the one you have always wanted. The puppy you dreamed about as a kid, the exact pup that you have always wanted for your very own.  But you should be very aware of the canine breeds and common ailments before you bring this forever pet home.

Many people have a specific breed in mind. For me it was kind of like picking the place in our world where I always dreamed of living my adult life.

I want a French Bulldog and I wanted to live somewhere in the warmth of our world in the tropics. The only problem for me so far, it has been just a dream. But I’m still working toward my goals.

I never knew until just recently that I could have, or do anything that I really want to do, whenever I want to in my life. I always thought I was just supposed to do whatever it was that made common sense. That would have been my mothers teaching; but I’m pretty much done with that now.

My mother always questioned everything that I ever wanted to do. Most of the time she belittled me for having such stupid ideas. “Why do you want to move halfway around the world, away from your family?” My mother always had a great way of telling me to grow up; quit thinking of only yourself! But at 59, why would I want to do that?

So even though I have traveled pretty extensively, I haven’t been to Mexico yet and I haven’t gotten a french bulldog yet either.

But getting my dream dog can come with a few problems I found out. I wasn’t aware that specific canine breeds and common ailments could come in the same package.  Many breeds are prone to certain medical problems.

A little French Bulldog (any little dog for that matter) can start out as a healthy dog or puppy. Then as your new pet grows, you may find yourself up against a few allergies that get worse and worse over time.

Depending on the canine breeds and common ailments listed below, you might find your new little dream pup fighting to clear allergies to something in its food, or a material included in its bedding.

It will behove any new pet parent to study the accompanying list of canine breeds and common ailments below. It is a fairly meticulous list and one that took a great deal of time to establish. These common ailments are illnesses that you should be very aware of so that when and if your puppy begins to show signs, you will know ahead of time what to do and how to care for the ailing dog or puppy.

Now I’m not saying that the risk of the disease or ailment would make any difference in your choice of breed; it certainly wouldn’t matter for the dog breed that I choose.

But if it really matters to you, and it should, then how much research are you willing to invest in your quest for a healthy puppy/dog just might save you and your new family addition a whole lot of headaches.

Reading about your preferred type of dog at the library or online, talking to a vet or two, or even chatting with a breeder, will give you a great  start and give you enough insight about what to do and how to spot an ailment that could even be a life threatening situation and save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars. Remember, you are bringing your new puppy home to cuddle up with, not run back and forth to the local emergency vet clinic.

Make sure that you ask yourself if you plan on skipping this education, “are you willing to take on a dog that could be ill with one of these canine breeds and common ailments that they are known for”?  Some dog maladies are worse than others, some are easily treated and then some are more expensive to treat and harder to deal with.

So please choose your new dog wisely; it’s a life long commitment. There’s no giving the dog back and it is a desperate thing to give a sick dog up for adoption later in its life.  In my opinion, this new dog is going to be like a new child in your family and a good parent cannot just abandon the new pet. At least not in good conscience.

Depending on the type or breed of dog that you want is going to matter a great deal in many cases. Almost every breed is going to have its own set of problems.

Whether problems come from actual breeding and was something that was bred into this particular breed way back when. Or it could be just a part of natural selection and a new set of problems for this particular breed somehow just became known.  Canine breeds and common ailments are particularly pretty well known at this point but there could always be a fluke and a new malady shows up, out of the blue.

a bulldog
the cute bulldog

For instance, the English Bulldog, is a hefty medium size breed that has problems with its breathing. The bulldog with his very cute, only a mother could love, smashed-in face, might suffer from a particular set of breathing problems. His nostrils are normally rather small, and he has an elongated soft palate, with a specifically narrow trachea. It is for these reasons that he most likely will snore. Has he always been born with these problems or were they bred into this particular dog? You will find some of these same problems in another, yet smaller breed; the French Bulldog (my future dog). I don’t mind snoring, as long as its coming from a dog. lol

It is extremely important to keep your bulldog cool and inside most of the time during the summer weather. Never let him get overly tired, too warm or overheated. This can lead to a life-threatening emergency. Exercising your bulldog should be done with moderation but never overdone. Small, short walks are okay, but this dog won’t care to go sight-seeing in the park.

My favorite dog, the Frenchie or French Bulldog, is just such an adorable little bugger. He also has his own set of breathing problems. He has many of the same problems that his larger English brother has when it comes to breathing and snoring. With the cute smashed in face, elongated soft palate and narrow trachea, also known as a “brachycephalic airway”. So it becomes difficult for him to breath when he overdoes it.

french bulldog
a cute little bug-my fave

This little guy makes a great indoor dog, or even better, a great apartment dog. Most apartments have a lot less space than houses. This means less stairs to climb in most cases, and rarely do you find a large yard to run and frolic in with an apartment. Keeping this little one in the house where it is cool during hot summer days is his preferable life style.

Both the English Bulldog and the French Bulldog are great house dogs, love to be in close proximity to mom or dad. I mean, who could not love that little face?

I saw a family out walking their French Bulldog the other day while pushing their baby in a stroller; the dog looked exhausted. I pulled over and told them that their dog looked a little overly tired. His head was hanging down, his tongue was hanging out and I was mad as heck. I knew they were probably going to tell me to mind my own business but I felt I had to say something. But instead they said, “yeah, we’re on our way home now”. Just to add fire to the flame, I told them that their dog was not made for long walks but got no response from that comment. People just don’t think sometimes.

little husky puppies
predisposed little huskies

Some dogs seem to be predisposed to “autoimmune disorders” or disorders that disrupt the skin, body hair and even more so, the face, facial hair, and eyes. One such beautiful dog is the Siberian Huskie.

They have the most beautiful eyes but autoimmune disorders can play havoc not only with their skin, their facial area, but even with their eyes and sight.

This disorder can cause glaucoma and even possibly cataracts. There is only one treatment that I have seen listed for this particular problem which is hormones known as corticosteroids. The corticosteroids can inhibit other parts of the immune system which is not good.

The Pug Puppy

The Pug, another sweet doggy.  They have their own set of problems. Because they have a squashed in face and their eyes bulge out, these sweet pups run a big risk for eye problems. The most serious problem is that their eye(s) can easily pop out of the socket.

I am not sure if this happens due to an overabundance of pressure behind the eye or because the eye is too easily removed in an accident or while fighting? But if it should happen to your Pug, cover his eye with a damp clean cloth and rush him to a vet where they can put the eye back in place. It will only be clear at that time if the dog will remain with sight or if there is too much damage.

Another little cutey with eye problems? The Boston Terrier is prone to something called “Cherry Eye” because of the protruding eyes.

pic of boston terrier puppy
Boston Terrier puppy

They are problematic for other eye issues but with cherry eye, there is a tear producing gland that “pops out” from behind this dog’s third eyelid. The gland is round and is bright red;  thus the reason it is called cherry eye.

It can be repaired through a surgery. These terriers also run a risk for dry eye, cataracts, and eyelids that are turned inward “entropion”.

obese or fat dogs
Obesity is sad for dogs

Obesity? I thought this was a problem that humans and all dogs suffer from. But that can really only be true if they are overeating correct? I don’t think so.

Apparently the Lab family has a problem with obesity. Now you wouldn’t think that this would be an issue for this dog, especially a Lab since they love to be active. Unless your Lab is getting a whole lot of exercise every single day (and they do need it), they stand the chance of becoming overly fat.

If your dog is constantly begging to eat or be fed, the homeopathic doc or therapist says to try to get him to eat some apple, green beans, or carrots for a snack. I always wondered why my mother gave our black lab mix cans of green beans? And he ate them. Preventing weight gain is always a much easier thing than losing weight through dieting at a later time, or trying to starve for weight loss.

Have you ever heard of the “little white shaker syndrome”? It happens to dogs

small white maltese puppy
Maltese puppy

of many colors but is much more prevalent in little white dogs. The “little white shaker syndrome” is actually called “tremors” in any small dog of any color but mainly dogs that are little and white like the Maltese.

Their cerebellum is where it begins as an inflammation and it inflicts the poor little guy, making him shake so badly that he can barely walk. They say that it can be treated with corticosteroids. These tremors are not painful and with treatment, they will usually clear up in just a few weeks.  But again, corticosteroids are not a great long term medication for any animal or person.

puppy Cavalier King Puppy
Cavalier King Puppy

Heart Trouble? Yikes…. But the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is stricken with this mitral valve disease, especially the elderly of these small dogs.  It is typical of a younger Spaniel to develop this mitral valve disease early on.

With this mitral valve disease, the valve between the left atrium and ventricle doesn’t close tight enough. This allows blood to leak backwards as the heart pumps, which puts a strain on his little heart. There are other symptoms like lethargy and coughing associated with the heart disease. However, with the right meds and proper monitoring, a dog with this disease should be living for years into senior hood with little or no symptoms.

huge Great Dane
bone and skin dog needs a comfortable place to lie down for its boney mass

How about the “great bloat”? Bloat in a dog can be really serious and is prevalent in Great Danes. Because they are so large, they run a bigger risk for “gastric dilation and volvulus” which is called “bloat”.  It is life threatening because the stomach fills up with gas and then the stomach twists as it traps the gas and food in the stomach. If you ever see your Dane (or any larger dog I would assume) pacing about uncomfortably, panting, and drooling right after he eats? You will need to call your vet and get him to a place for corrective surgery right away because bloat can be fatal if not treated fast.

pure breed dog with skin allergies
Pure Breed such as this one has awful skin allergies which is not uncommon. They can be taken care of before they are allowed to get this bad though!

Skin Allergies?  Geez. I have been reading about the Golden Retriever but I know they aren’t the only dog to have skin allergies because my Staffordshire Terrier had them terribly. I also knew a Shar Pei that went to the groomers and vet once a week because of the oils that were excreted within and under his rolls of wrinkles and in between his toes. All 3 of these dogs licked incessantly, causing sores on their feet especially.

My wrinkled friend was in terrible shape and I was so happy that he was blessed with a really rich owner who could take proper care of him. That poor little dog was miserable when it was close to his weekly visit to the vet.

They tried changing his food, bath soap, tub soaks, medicines. I felt terrible for him but I also felt really bad for my dog. She was also miserable and the vet kept giving her steroid shots which were not good for her. She passed away at 7 from heart failure; I have always blamed it on the vet at that time.

Dogs don’t sneeze like we humans do. So when they are allergic to something, they begin to lick and in most cases their licking, scratching, chewing will lead to “hot spots”. These spots are red and can turn into oozing sores. The vets believe that oatmeal shampoo, adding an omega-3 supplement to its diet, and make sure he always gets regular flea treatments. In our case we also switched the food to something like salmon, duck, and no grains at all.

The book I just read doesn’t mention steroids at all so I am assuming that these vets would never even begin with the steroids. They do stop the itching but only for a short while and have to be repeated once every 30 days or so.

However, now there is a great medication out that can be given to dogs who are in itchy bad spots. I do not know the name of it and I do not know the side effects. I’m sure I will be hearing soon from Dr. Jones, our homeopathic vet.

When the joint ball and socket do not fit together in the proper way, it causes severe pain, arthritis sets in, and problems walking begin as well. Hip Dysplasia is the diagnosis and pretty common with German Shepherds. If you are shopping for a Shepherd puppy, you will want to have this conversation with the breeder to see if this puppy’s parents were screened for hip dysplasia. It sounds as though hip dysplasia could be a bit hereditary since parents with healthy hips commonly birth pups with healthy hips.

dressed up poodlePoodles are one of the “handful of Breeds” that are at an increased risk for Glaucoma which is a serious eye disease. A buildup of fluid in the eye causes pressure and pain, and can eventually cause blindness. If caught early (as with humans) it can be treated with medication. If not, then surgery or even a full removal of affected eyes could be necessary.

Joints seem to be a problem with larger dogs and in this case the Rottweiler is a pretty big dog. But these particular dogs suffer from hip and elbow

dysplasia, arthritis, osteochondrosis dissecans or OCD. It is a condition that develops in larger puppies that grow fast when cartilage in the joint forms improperly. The right amount of a balanced diet could keep the joints healthy but many dogs require a surgery that removes this abnormal cartilage.

A dog with diabetes or one that is more prone to diabetes? If you have a Miniature Schnauzer that is drinking water like crazy and all of a sudden he is having urine accidents in the house? These dogs seem to be at a higher risk of diabetes; this is a serious condition. So it’s insulin and diet change for this pup if he is to have a normal and healthy life.

Beagles, another cute smaller dog, are known for epilepsy!

Seizures caused by a brain disorder is more common for Beagles than any other dog breed. A first seizure is usually seen between six months and three years. Epilepsy cannot be cured, but frequency (more than one per month) could be managed with medication.

Cocker Spaniels get ear infections because of the way their ears grow. It is important to trim hair that is growing on the underside with clippers to keep her ear canals dry. Prevention is the best way to keep ear infections from happening so clean the ears every two weeks. Flip her ears back to let them “breathe”. This prevention will also help prevent major problems later in life as well.

sounds a bit better but this is common in “toy breeds” like Shih Tzus. When the knee cap pops out-of-place, the dog hobbles, skips a step, or limps. This kneecap will normally pop back in place by itself. There are severe cases when surgery might be a necessity for correcting any problems and prevention for arthritis.

I have heard of bad backs in this dog but we always called our dog a wiener dog! I had one of these as a young girl and loved him dearly. He got away from me when we were walking on the beach and someone picked him up and took him home. I found this out at the local store because whoever it was, told them to tell us they were going to keep him, if we happened to come in to ask about him. The nerve of some jerk people.  My heart was crushed and I sobbed all the way home.

But yes, Dachshunds can develop back problems because of their long short bodies. There is a high risk for injury and spinal disk problems if they try to jump up on something that is too high or put excess strain on her back.

Limiting their stairs and keep them from jumping down off of the furniture will help to alleviate some stress on the back. Maintaining a healthy weight is also really important.

Doberman Pinschers are commonly diagnosed with a serious heart condition called Dilated Cardiomyopathy or DCM. The heart’s chambers are stretched out and they don’t pump blood effectively. Most people do not even realize that there is anything wrong with their dog until he collapses. Vets of Dobermans might suggest annual screenings because it is such a serious and common condition for them. Medications can regulate their heart rhythm and improve the ability for their heart to pump but there is no cure for DCM.

A Portosystemic Shunt or PSS is a blood vessel birth defect common in small breeds like the Yorkshire Terrier. This portal vein will carry toxins from her intestines to her liver, which cleans her blood. When PSS is the problem, this portal vein bypasses her liver, the toxins do not get removed. PSS causes poor growth, vomiting, confusion, and seizures. PSS may be corrected with surgery most of the time and she will be able to live a normal healthy life.

Does your Chihuahua make a honking noise when she gets excited? She could have a collapsed trachea which is yet another common problem with toy


breeds. With the collapsed trachea, the cartilage that holds the trachea in an open position is weak, and so the trachea will flatten. There are some little dogs that can go a life time with a collapsing trachea and have no problems. But others will require a medication and still others with severe cases, a surgery may be necessary to prop the trachea open.

Boxers are at higher risk for certain types of cancer, which include lymphoma and mast cell tumors. Lymphoma is cancer of the lymph nodes, and mast cell tumors are a type of skin cancer. In both cases, the cancer is often felt as an unusual lump or bump on your dog’s body. Both cancers might be treatable, but important to catch both of them early. So if you have a boxer, please check him regularly for lumps.

gland disease called alopecia X, which causes hair loss. Alopecia X usually begins when a dog is young. If a dog with alopecia X is intact, spaying or neutering often causes the hair to grow back (this hair loss is caused by excess production of sex hormones). Melatonin supplements can also help.

German Short-haired Pointers are known for a narrowing of the aorta which is the large blood vessel. It carries oxygenated blood to the body from the heart. When this narrowing or Aortic Stenosis is diagnosed, a strain on the heart over time could cause irregular heart rhythm.

If it is a mild case, it is possible there are no symptoms. But if the case is severe, your dog could become weak and tire easily. Usually and unfortunately, this is one of the things that can shorten your dog’s life. It can be managed however, with medications.

The Shetland Sheepdog are a beautiful breed. However these Shelties can be affected by a whole group of eye problems that are related, also known as “Collie Eye Anomaly”. It affects the retina and optic nerve. If the case is mild, the dog’s vision may not be affected at all. Moderate to Severe cases might lead to blindness. There is no known treatment for “Collie Eye”. It is fairly widespread among dog breeds affected by it. If you are out shopping for a Sheltie puppy, make sure you ask if it has been tested.

aspca adoption
aspca adopt a dog

humane dauchshund_hoadringIf you must have a pure breed puppy, then do your homework. Check the breed with as many different resources as you can so that you know what you may be purchasing. If there are tests that can be done for puppies, make sure the puppy that you pick has been tested. Check the parents lineage as well.

I will always recommend that adoption of a “dog” or “puppy” be the way to purchase a dog. Adoption from a local shelter is about the best way to pick your loving little bundle.

After shopping around for my last puppy, I found that adopting a dog that has already been house trained was optimal. Vaccines are already completed and in all cases, whatever you decide to adopt, will either be spayed or neutered before you bring them home. Many dogs out there have been removed from places of abuse or “torture chambers” is what I call them.

There are so many grown up human beings that do not deserve to have a loving bundle in their care. If you do deserve one and get one to bring home, chances are you are going to need homeopathic over the counter medications and supplements.

I do not have a whole lot to say about regular pet stores. You can find “cheap” all the way to “really high end” dog foods and then take hours in between trying to find the best and making up your mind for what is supposed to be the most nutritious, not using cereals, toxins in medications, and on and on it goes.

My suggestion to any good doggy parent?  Go to the sources at the top and start with someone who is educated, someone who has taken the time to study about the products they are selling.

Starting here: Vetionx Pet Health Care Products. There is a very common malady that I mentioned in another post and went into quite some detail about it; separation anxiety. If you already have a pet, possibly your dog is suffering from it and if so, I truly hope that you will get the homeopathic and really effective medication for it.  Anxietrex; safe and effective!

Hopefully, there are many loving and caring people like myself, and like you who can give these deserving little bundles a great home full of love and caring and healthy living. It’s what they deserve, that is for sure.

If You Are Using Allergy Meds For Your Pets; STOP!

are you killing your dog with allergy medications

If you are using allergy meds for your pets; STOP now!

What do you know about medications or home remedies that you would use to treat allergy and arthritis symptoms? No, I’m not speaking about the more serious medications that a vet can give you such as steroids either; those should be avoided at all costs!

Avoid serious medication side effects by using natural remedies!

The BIG MYTH:  “Antibiotics and Anti-inflammatories or Steroids have very few side effects, your pet will be fine”.  This is often very very WRONG. If you are using Allergy meds for your pets, STOP, even if they are prescribed by your vet, stop it now.

My baby girl for instance had chronic allergy issues.  I even went so far as to get her allergy tested which was $1,000 bucks and then have the allergy shots built specifically for her needs (I won’t tell you what I spent on that). The shots had very little, if no effect on her poor little body. The vet insisted on Steroid pills, before that it was injections once a month. Those, I had to stop immediately. The challenge? For us it was finding something that would work.

Changing her food was the first serious step.  She went from the bagged dry garbage purchased from the grocery or pet store to a very high cost, no grains, no fillers, high protein diet. It did help her quite a bit, I must say, but did not alleviate her allergies totally.

I changed her bedding several times too; always upgraded her bedding to brand new dog beds to see if this would help her.  This seemed to have little if no effect.  In fact, she always wanted her old dog beds back; she did not care for the newer bedding.  But this has everything to do about being a dog and had nothing to do with her wanting to solve her allergy problem.

The only thing that we could physically do for her at home besides the steps above was to make sure we bathed her frequently (at least twice a week) with a dermatitis OR oatmeal shampoo and use proper flea treatments once a month. The holistic vet says that oatmeal shampoo is the best at relieving any itchy skin possible.  You have to let the shampoo sit on their skin for at least ten minutes.

When we went for a walk, upon returning home, her paws had to be wiped down with hypoallergenic baby wipes.  In between her toes and halfway up her legs.  I had to clean any area that might have come into contact with the grass; this included her bottom and tummy areas as well.  She could have an allergy to the grass.  What?

There were several other things we found over time that seemed to help in between bathing her.

I brewed mint tea as strong as I could get it and used the cooled tea to wipe down her coat and skin and I soaked her paws in it; she had a habit of chewing on her feet.  If you can get your hands on fresh mint which seems to grow wild just about anyplace that you plant it. This is much better than mint tea because the mint hasn’t been dried and the oils from the mint are what you want anyway.  The mint oil in the tea had a great calming effect on her irritated and allergy ravaged skin.

My dog chewed her feet so much that they would balloon up from her constant chewing and then we would end up with another infection. Infections always made us use another round of antibiotics which constantly played havoc with her tummy and gave her another yeast infection.  I tried to rub her feet with clove oil so she would not chew on them because of the taste, but somehow she always got past that and found a way to chew.

Do not use anti-inflammatories if it can be avoided at any cost.  Dogs can develop ulcers and liver disease from the use of them.

“Safe” steroid use has caused diabetes, vomiting, and diarrhea.  While used to stop the itching from allergies, the negatives against steroids are much more serious.  If you hear steroids being used in the vets vocabulary, RUN.

Too many cats have developed kidney failure from supposed “safe” pain relievers.

Numerous vaccine reactions, including vaccine-induced cancers have been documented and reported in dogs and cats.  These are the vaccines that our pets are “required” to have in order to get a rabies license, or in order to be kept overnight at the kennels or boarding place when their owners have to leave them.  It is best to try to avoid these “required” vaccines.  Learn to do your own bathing and grooming. Find a friend to stay at your house when you have to be away.  Your pet will be much happier to be at home anyway.  Avoid dog parks if possible, have play dates with friends and their dogs in a deserted field or one of your own back yards.  Do what’s best for your animal; those vaccines are very dangerous.

Allergies are one of the most common reasons that pets go to see the vet. There are a huge number of allergens; but all of them are contained in 3 main classes.  These are Food, Fleas and Environment.

The most common signs of allergies look like excessive scratching, paw and anal licking, hair shedding, and excessive dandruff.

If you think that your pet may be suffering from any allergy, there are two things that are recommended for you to try immediately.

1. Eliminate external parasites (fleas or ticks), and;

2. Start a hypoallergenic diet for 4-6 weeks.  There are many out there but even though they say they are hypoallergenic, read the ingredients on the bag or can first. The first common culprit that has to be eliminated are all grains.  Grains are wheat, rice, oats, corn, barley, or any other plant grown nutrient that we as humans eat.  Eliminate seeds and nuts as well.  In any case, the vet can give you a written prescription for the food.  You are sure to get a sure-fire hypoallergenic food this way.  It is expensive at about $70 bucks for a small bag of dry food and $3.50 for a can of wet food; they both smell and look like tree bark or tree bark paste.  No color added?  Looks grey and smells unappetizing and is expensive as heck.  You can get a recipe and make it at home; wet food is certainly preferred according to Dr. Andrew Jones.

Some very helpful at home remedies that I used are:

BATHE: Oatmeal shampoo with cool water will ease the itchiest skin. Leave the shampoo on for 10 minutes then rinse well with cool water.  With the most severe of allergies, you should bathe the pet at least twice a week.  In between bathing, use the mint tea water to soothe aggravated skin.  Load a spritzer bottle full of the tea so you have it on hand at all times. Another great topical soother is Calendula ointment; it is an herbal medication that has been successfully used to relieve severe itching.  Apply a thin coat twice daily to affected areas.

I have recommended this next supplement for ever and ever in my blog postings and if you still haven’t purchased this SUPPLEMENT, I don’t know what you’re waiting for. Maybe you don’t care about what is going on for your pet’s health, and who knows, maybe you’ll listen now.  Fatty Acid supplements are essential and very helpful in decreasing the levels of inflammation. Omega 3 fatty acids are most important.  The supplement created by Dr. Jones is loaded with them.   A great, but very inexpensive source is ground Flax Seeds; give 1 tsp per cup of food for your dog only.

Not for your Cat!  Since Cats are not able to metabolize Flax, you can give them a liquid supplement or the supplement that Dr. Jones created.  His Cat Supplement is loaded with everything that your cat needs.  Other sources of liquid supplements would include fish oil, primrose oil and, of course, these very specific veterinary supplements.

Dr. Andrew Jones, whom I have told you about over and over, takes his care of animals very seriously.  Go here and order all of his free digital information and get in touch with your pets health now.  He has formulated supplement preparations for both cats and dogs. He normally sells the first month that you order at 50% of the normal cost.  He wants your dog and cat to be as healthy as possible.  His supplements are chock full of every piece of nutrition missing from the daily diets of our pets.  These supplements are essential for heart, lung, kidney, bladder, and many other organs health and longevity.  It is much cheaper and better for your pet in the long run to be healthy, so that in their senior years you and they are as happy together as you can be.  No one wants to put their loving pet down early in life. My dog died at eight years of age because I came into her life far too late after all the damage had been done.

Your Dog Was Hit By A Car; Now What Do You Do?

“Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight.” ~Albert Schweitzer

My vet asked me if I knew CPR and First Aid for my pet?  She said “pretend your dog was hit by a car; now what do you do?” I told her I knew CPR and First Aid for people, but not animals.  She told me that there isn’t much difference between the two; just keep myself reminded once in a while by reading about it.

When I first brought my dog home from the humane society and I was taking her out of the car, she broke free from my grasp.  I thought she was just going to run around my yard and smell it out.  But she had a surprise for me; she had no prior knowledge of the boundaries in my yard.

She was still very close to me but as I began calling her, she looked at me and ran the other way from me.  So I began my pursuit and started to run after her.  The more I ran towards her, the faster she ran from me.  Out through the front hedge she went and down the very empty and quiet street straight out and onto the busiest street in the neighborhood.  I knew she was there, she was out of my sight, but there was only one place she could have run.

I heard brakes applied and tires trying to stop as a car ran into the back of another car, blam.  Then a slight thump and a dog yelp, I thought for a split second, “if it’s real bad Lord, please let her be dead.”  I don’t know if I can explain that split second thought or if you understand it?  But if that beautiful little girl had been hit, which I already knew had happened, then I thought if she is hurt badly, I would rather have her die than have her to be alive in terrible pain.  If you do not understand my thought processes here, I cannot explain it any better.  If you do not understand where my head went here, then just pass this paragraph over.

I screamed at the same time I yelled “Molly”, and she came running around the corner, straight for me.  I dropped down onto my knees, she ran straight into my arms.  A lady about my age came running around the corner right behind her; she was crying.  I said “she’s okay” and as she came closer Molly began barking at her, so I told her to stay back because I didn’t know what my girl was going to do.  I said, “look, she appears to be okay, just give me your number, I’ll call you if something happens or changes”.

I took Molly into the house and cuddled and coddled her all night.  She never flinched when I touched her, she didn’t have any bruises anywhere that I could see and the next day even, she had no trouble walking.  The woman said she had just barely tapped her backside.  But, still I know now that I should have taken her to the vet to have her checked out.

Molly is one of the “bully breeds”.  These dogs have a magnificent way of “not showing pain”.  They tense up when touched, but they do not show pain. This is a survival skill that these dogs have.  She never made a whimper.  She still doesn’t years later.

It has been years, now even when her hips are so stiff upon rising in the mornings from arthritis.  After I read what Dr. Andrew Jones has written about dogs and arthritis, I purchased the first month’s supply of his “Ulimate Canine Formula”.  Selling the first month at half price and his word that it works wonders for arthritis, I decided to give it a six month trial run just to see how “great” it really is.

It has been three months since I began purchasing this formula. Now I swear that I have a different dog in my home. I ask Molly if she wants to go for a walk and instead of rising slowly and walking to the door, she is up in a flash and running circles around me all the way to the front door.  She always sits as I hook her up to the leash but after that she is practically walking me down the street.  We used to walk right next to each other very slowly.  But now, she trots down the street and I am really walking faster than I care to, just to keep up with her.

For the first time, I have become a firm believer in “home remedies” or “homeopathic medicine”.  I have begun to gather more information about the home side of medicine, healing, and self care.  Rather than turning to pharmaceuticals, medicinal physicians and hospitals, unless there is something seriously wrong; wouldn’t it be better to treat our minds and bodies with something that doesn’t chemically change that part of ourselves that needs the help?

Since we are on the subject of dogs being hit by a car, motorcycle, or a speeding super hero?  I read an article written by Dr. Jones about what we should do if our dog does get hit by a car.

He even says that “as a pet owner, one of my worst fears is having my dog or cat hit by a car.  In the Vet world, we call this HBC.”


You may see it, and then it BECOMES very obvious. Often though, cats and dogs, when HBC’s have only external signs, which may be just a few scrapes. If, however, they are limping, can’t walk at all, or they are having difficulty breathing?



I often see lung injuries from car accidents. Does your pet appear to be breathing normally, or is the breathing labored?  Is your pet breathing with their mouth open?

A common injury called “pneumothorax” is when part of the lung collapses, this will cause progressive respiratory distress.  (Mouth breathing looks like large deep chest,  or stomach movements in which your pet is attempting to get air into their lungs).

If you see this, you need to seek IMMEDIATE veterinary care.


The easiest way to check the heartbeat, is to place your ear against the chest behind the left elbow.  You can also feel for a pulse by placing your fingers in the groin (inside the thigh of a back leg).


If your pet is non-responsive (not breathing and no heartbeat), then you will have to go through the CPR steps below:


1. Assess responsiveness

2. Establish an airway

3. Perform rescue breathing

4. Cardiac massage – establishing circulation.  In the case of cardiac massage on a large dog, you will have to exert a lot of force.  Much more than on a small dog or cat.  Do not worry if you feel a rib break, ribs heal.

After every single minute, stop cardiac massage, and recheck for pulse and breathing. 

Rescue breathing:  after counting chest compressions, tip the head back to open airways, hand under chin holding mouth shut, breathing through the nose for count, and then back to chest compressions.  This will be taught in the Home Study Course below.

If after checking for heartbeat and breathing, there are none, you must continue heart massage compressions and the rescue breathing until you can hear a heart beat and or feel resumed breathing or until you are exhausted and cannot continue.

ONCE your pet is breathing and their heart resumes beating, CALL your veterinarian immediately!


A great measure of their blood pressure; this will determine if shock is present, and helps to evaluate for internal bleeding. The gums of your pet should be a healthy pink color. If they are pale, then your pet needs to be treated for shock and transported to a Vet  ASAP.


If there are areas of bleeding, then stop them QUICKLY by applying direct firm pressure on the wound with a dry clean cloth or gauze.  Hold the cloth or gauze  in place with firm pressure for at least 5 minutes.


You will need to cover any open wounds; this will keep them clean and help prevent any infection.  Of course, bandage material is preferable, but a towel will work just fine until you get to the Vet where they can be bandaged correctly.


If your pet is not using a leg, or if a leg is dangling, and bent at an unusual angle? Or if the bone is broken and being pushed through the tissue and skin; it is obviously broken.  In any of the above situations, you should attempt to immobilize it until you get veterinary care.

To immobilize a broken limb, place a towel around the leg. Wrap the inside of the leg with material to partially splint the limb: newspaper, magazine or even bubble wrap. Cover this with tape to keep the newspaper next to the towel.


Carefully transporting your pet on a firm surface will work the best. If possible, put your pet on a wooden board. This is best done by first gently sliding him onto a sheet, then pull the sheet by sliding the sheet onto the board.

If you don’t have any of these available, don’t worry, the most important thing is rapid transport to your vet.  Calmly, lift your pet by cradling him (left arm around or under his chest and right arm around or under his rear).  This looks like you are carrying him with the four legs sticking up in the air.  They might begin to wiggle if carried upside down and the situation could become explosive, hurting the pet worse especially if there are internal wounds and bleeding.

Once delivered to the vet, you can breathe a little easier but if you have been able to use the FIRST AID AND CPR THAT YOU LEARNED FROM TAKING THE HOME STUDY COURSES; then you most likely have just saved your pet’s life.

The Home Study Courses that include “Pet First Aid and CPR” were compiled over hundreds of hours by Dr. Andrew Jones in an attempt to teach us how to care for and heal our pets at home.  These courses, designed for you to study at home with follow up quizzes to test your knowledge, are an invaluable asset to have when you own a pet.
