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.

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!

“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.

Click here to go to the order page for the whole “Acupressure Treatment” video. I think that you will find it is the least expensive, most non-invasive treatment that your dog (or cat) will ever need.

Stem Cell Therapy for Your Dog? It’s All the New Rage!

Were you aware that “Stem Cell Therapy” is “the all new rage”?

This is relatively a new veterinary therapy.  It is now offered at many veterinarian clinics. Some of the surgeries where use of the stem cells is needed, are getting wonderful results too. Especially in those pets that are severely arthritic; this new treatment seems to be working miracles for at least 95% nationwide.

I received a newsletter from Dr. Andrew Jones; from this I tool all of my information about Stem Cell Therapy plus some added information that I already knew from my studies to help my dog.  BUT, if you want more detail, names of veterinarians, clinics practicing, etc., you can go here!  >>>> If you go to this source:  on Stem Cell Therapy,  you can read more about it.

What is stem cell therapy?

Stem cells are the cells in the body that repair all other damaged cells.  All animals/pets have them.  These stem cells divide and they can also differentiate between the many other types of cells that are in the body.  When there is damaged or dead tissue that needs repair or replacement, based upon where the damage is in the body, these cells duplicate and go to those places to grow and replace dead or damaged tissue.

If any tissue in the body, such as skin, fat, muscle, bone, cartilage, and even nerve tissue that becomes damaged?  The stem cells replicate and divide; while they are dividing, they begin to search for damaged tissue in the body.  They migrate to that tissue and begin their repair work.  These same stem cells also go into damaged organs, such as the heart, liver, intestines, pancreas, etc., to do repair work there.


However, I do recall the national outburst shouted out by probably millions of groups and individuals that were against stem cell research.  I am not up-to-date on how people feel about stem cell use today as it was not something that I was against.

If we can grow actual stem cells in our own bodies and these cells can be harvested in a fairly easy manner, and actual human organs can be regrown, replaced, or repaired with harvested stem cells? I could hardly have a problem with this. Much more so, with my dog? I could never deny her this treatment if it is affordable.

I do not know why most of the people who were against stem cell research were very offended to begin with and I cannot surmise their reasoning.  If I were to take an educated guess, however, I would have to assume that most all issues surrounded the testing that was being done on animals. This is the one and only reason that I was against the “testing of stem cells” and the actual research.  All research studies seem to envelope our animals so that testing on humans is avoided at costs.  Any and all testing is and always has been conducted with the use of animals.

There are different types of stem cells

There are two types of stem cells; embryonic and somatic.  Somatic means adult; thus adult stem cells which are not harvested from babies or infants.

Embryonic stem cells are found in a placenta or actual embryo.  Those cells; called “totipotent” (meaning has the ability to) reproduce into any mature cell type.  Embryonic stem cells have the greatest potential for healing tissue. Therefore, embryonic stem cells are preferred.

Because of where the embryonic stem cells are harvested, herein lies the reason for the many moral and ethical concerns with the harvesting of embryonic types of cells.  It becomes more difficult to harvest them.

The second type of stem cell is the adult stem cell.  These stem cells are called multipotent, which means they can differentiate into closely related cell lines, but they are not capable of creating a new organ.

Adult stem cells are found in the bone marrow, adipose tissue (fat), skin, liver, blood vessels, and neurons.  Contrary to embryonic stem cells, there are no moral or ethical concerns in harvesting these cells, activating them, and reintroducing them back to the patient in areas where healing and regeneration is needed.

So why use cells from adipose (fat) tissue?

Adult stem cells are highly concentrated in fat tissue.  There are 50 to 1,000 times more stem cells in the fat than the bone marrow.  At this concentration, it is no longer necessary to culture the stem cells to acquire the necessary cell numbers to make a healing impact.  The procedure to extract fat from the patient is much quicker and less invasive than a spay.

The stem cells that are needed, are contained inside a pool of cells inside of the fat.  The term “Stromal Vascular Fraction” or “SVF”.  The “SVF may send out an anti-inflammatory effect”, and “add bioactive peptides”, and then contribute to “reformation and architectural organizations”.  All of these benefits are lost however, once “stem cells are cultured”.

What do they do with these stem cells?

The “adult stem cells” are capable of dividing into many different cell types. Because of this, they can be used as a treatment for joint injuries, ligament and tendon damage, and fractured bones, instead of one particular instance that needs repair.

There are research and clinical trials that “currently support this use of stem cells under these conditions”.  However, there is ongoing research trying to target other parts of a body for treatments and they are saying that the preliminary results are very encouraging too.

What will your Vet do; how does this procedure work?

The procedure for your dog (or pet) is scheduled with a veterinarian well versed and accomplished in this procedure, of course.  The veterinarian will anesthetize (put him under) your pet.  They will surgically remove a couple tablespoons of fat.  This is a very quick and simple procedure; it is normally much easier than performing a spay.  The fat is then processed to remove any stem cells.

This process usually takes a couple of hours.  After the stem cells have been removed, your pet will most likely be sedated once again, and the stem cells will be placed into the joints and/or affected areas and quite possibly into the bloodstream.

It will be very important that you do not feed your pet the night before the procedure; this is pretty normal for all procedures when your dog is put under sedation.

When will the results show up?

Every animal is different and, as usual,  there are no guarantees.  But they say that they have seen a positive improvement in 95% of all the arthritic cases performed nationwide.  Some owners have even reported seeing a difference in as little as a week!

While quick results are possible, they of course say the same thing they say with every procedure like this;  they “expect us to begin seeing improvement within the first 90 days following treatment”.  If there is a case of really bad arthritis, it may be that multiple injections will be required;  make sure that you are banking your extra stem cells.  It  is always a good idea!”

Is the procedure safe?

And, of course, the same goes for this answer!  They say that “with any procedure that involves anesthesia, there is always a risk.”   However, “the stem cells are coming from your pet and are going to be re-administered back into your pet.”  Then “there is no risk of an allergic reaction in your pet.”   “In rare cases however, there could be a mild immunity reaction that will happen in the joint at the injection site; this should subside in 24 – 48 hours.”

I received all of my information from Dr. Andrew Jones, my Online and Homeopathic Vet!  He did suggest that if my pet was fairly young still, but she is having extreme arthritic issues, then this would be his recommendation, (if I could afford it).

My take on this procedure?  I would do this for my girl in a second if I had the two grand to pay for it.  She hurts so bad on some days and I never know when her pain medication is working for her anymore. She was tapped on the behind when she was a very young Staffy by a car.  She got away from me when I brought her home from the vet one day and took off running away from me.

My dog and I, we were new to each other; I had just adopted her at the Humane Society who had brought her in from a violent situation in the home.  I heard the woman who accidentally hit her with her car as she slammed on her brakes.  Then, all I heard was my little girl yelping several times.  I was sobbing by the time I got around the corner.  I thought for sure she was going to be splayed out on the street in a bloody mess.  But then I saw her running toward me, thank God!  The problem is that she is a bully breed; she doesn’t let anyone know when she is in pain, ever.

But through the few years that have followed, the arthritis has taken its tole on her back hips and legs and some days she can barely walk.  I cry all of the time about it; I feel pretty guilty. She is not sick, she could have a great life if we can control the pain from the arthritis.  To me, this Stem Cell Therapy seems like a very viable option for her.
