The question is not, ‘Can they reason?’ nor ‘Can they talk?’ but rather ‘Can they suffer?’
— Jeremy Bentham

My February 19th, 2011 show is all about how we treat our fellow living beings on this earth.

It says everything about us collectively when certain groups of people choose to be apathetic, even deliberately ignorant about how our wild animals, domestic animals, marine mammals, and farm animals are treated.

Ezekiel, a beautiful, pure bred German Shepherd, has one of the most compelling and heart wrenching stories I have read. This little boy is a survivor. He represents the millions of animals in America who are no longer wanted and are dumped somewhere to fend for themselves….

Ezekiel’s story:

YouTube Video of Ezekiel\'s Rescue
My show with the founder of Dogs Deserve Better, Tamira Thayne, was one of many shows I have done and will continue to do for life-giving organizations like Dogs Deserve Better.

Look at the graphic photos on the website for Dogs Deserve Better, and see the horrible suffering and death that leaving an innocent, trusting animal on a chain in the snow, blistering sun, and without food, water, companionship, and even shelter from the weather can do… look at the horrors that this ignorant, reprehensible, irresponsible, and downright evil behavior can do to our most innocent, and certainly most BEAUTIFUL living beings.

This is unacceptable. Our laws have got to be enforced. And newer, more specific animal protection laws have got to be immediately passed by all State Legislatures to bring some justice for our Animal Companions…. our very best friends!

Who else is going to be by your side… and happy to see you everyday…. without judgement…. totally unconditional love.So, don’t we owe these members of our society some justice, rights, and reverence?

I say “YES” and millions of other caring people do, too…

So, why, in 2011, do we still have shelters that are so badly run and don’t bother to advertise or get animals adopted…. they just kill them immediately.

The killing, or “euthanasia” in these types of shelters of terror are either “Heart Stick” or the Gas Chambers. Yes, the very same style used in Nazi Germany to kill the innocent prisoners are the VERY same style now used on our domestic animals– and ALL of the animals killed in these slow death, agonizing torture chambers are VERY ADOPTABLE…. pure breds to lovable mixed breeds…. none are spared.

More than 6 million animals are killed in shelters every year in America alone. This is shameful, ignorant, horrifying.

A good article on the inhumane act of using the World War II killing chambers appeared in National Geographic in 2005:
National Geographic Article on Gas Killing Chambers

Some of the greatest moments in my life have been experienced when I just listened to my intuition and TOOK ACTION to save a life.

There were obstacles I had to overcome [like ignorance and jadedness of others] and I have had to stay focused on helping an animal in need because I knew that their lives were counting on me to follow through for them.

Totally worth it! The exhilaration of finally getting an animal or groups of animals to safety, and fostered until they can be adopted, has got to be the greatest feeling in this world. Helping others really does do something for YOU that is invaluable.

Adopt. Never buy a loving new family member.

There are PURE breed animals sitting in shelters today, waiting to be adopted. There are rescue groups of all kinds who specialize in pure bred animals, like German Shepherds to Collies to Persians and even exotic Birds!

Never buy from a Breeder or a “puppy” store! I think all breeders should be legally shut down and forced to pay their local municipality a yearly [large] fine to support the local animal shelters that are having to deal with the unethical business of ‘breeding’ more innocent animals into existence.

A very good blog and article on the TRUTH behind \"Puppy Mills\"

Please support Dogs Deserve Better in their quest to purchase the former property of Michael Vick [yeah, that really bad monster to Pit Bulls] in Virginia.

They are looking to turn this property into both a Memorial and into a Sanctuary. Please help a worthy organization like Dogs Deserve Better achieve this goal to help save even more lives and be the beacon of Honor that they have been for all animals.

Save a life. Take Action. It’s so worth it! Be beautiful on the inside…. it shows!

This broadcast is in loving memory of and dedicated to our beloved Fur Child, Mina, Brandy, Chiquita, Jangles, Mr. Black, Little Gray, Gabriel, and Polar, and the many amazing animals who have come our way… We celebrate their lives and the love that they brought to us daily. Thank you, God.

A Third Party To Protect You and Your Pet

My show today, October 25th, continues the eye-opening glimpse of what really is going on in the Veterinarian industry and how your pet could be at risk of being abused, neglected, and even killed by irresponsible and badly trained Vets….

And is there any regulation and disciplinary action over such reckless Vets? Nope. None. We pay taxes for Veterinary Boards, but they are merely bureaucratic and politically intertwined facades that give the taxpaying consumer a false sense of security.

The dirty truth is that ALL State Boards are in existence for themselves only. The “board” routinely ignores the abuses and horrors of most Vets.

Your complaint goes nowhere while the Vet’s bad behavior and medical misconduct is only encouraged by the “do nothing” stance of Vet Boards.

Shame on the ‘Big Government’ bureaucrats.

Sorry, but this arrogance is so despicable that the conversation has got to get bigger and into more media broadcasts so that the true change will finally come.

Did you know:

1.) Vets are not required to receive any further training or garner any new information in medical care the day the graduate from Vet school.

2.) Vets are not regulated by anyone, and answer to no one. The Veterinarian Board in every state is so corrupt that they collude with any bad Vet for almost any hideous crime imaginable. Nothing happens to the Vet.

3.) Vets are not required to a darn thing about Nutrition, Holistic and Herbal healing modalities, and don’t have to inform their client that they are not giving you the full picture as far as your choices are concerned for treatment.

4.) Vets routinely under-diagnose and mis-diagnose with no remorse and often don’t care enough to learn from their past mistakes. They often [and I have experienced this myself] prefer to play mental games with their client and blame the CLIENT for anything that goes wrong! The psychology here is akin to witchcraft. They play dirty games to confuse the Client into being the one to blame for the lack of information and bad medical care given. Totally unacceptable.

Our Animal Companions are just too precious, important, and amazing to be treated with such disrespect.

YOU NEED A THIRD PARTY at all times overseeing the treatment you are getting!

I am grateful to Dr. Nancy Allen of Westchester, NY for being there as a guiding light through the dark and very frightening time when my beloved cat was seriously ill.

My kitty, Angel, was saved because I had some intuitive sense that I was not being told the truth by some sleepy, “out to lunch” Vets who just did not seem right to me.

Thank God I had a house-call Vet to contact to look over the information and to talk to. I needed someone to help me, and Dr. Allen was there.

My advice is to ALWAYS have on-call a third party, LOCAL Vet who can help you take action. Get your “team” of good players together before you have an emergency. Check out many Vets and never be blinded by slick marketing and advertising.

Find a 24 hour, high-tech hospital with the BEST OF THE BEST in medical care. The Doctors and the Vet Technicians make the biggest difference in your pets chances for life and a full recovery.

I can tell you that both recently [as per some previous Blogs you may have read] my family lost a beloved Siamese to the misconduct and outright lack of intelligence and care by a Veterinarian who made some bad choices that killed one of our important family members.

Our pets are family. Why do some ignorant and arrogant Vets not get this idea?

I have personally been berated, yelled at, and lied to by some very bad Vets. There is one reprehensible male Vet located in Weston, CT, who called himself “holistic” but was nothing more than a liar, manipulator, and an abuser.

Be CAREFUL of anyone who advertises falsely. Many Doctors [for people and for our pets] advertise now as being “holistic” or “homeopathic” in order to attract a high end clientele who can pay big money.

I am PRO Holistic healing.

Of course, I am a proponent of healing naturally and understanding Nutrition as the foundation of all good health. It was Hippocrates who said, “Let food be thy medicine.”

I love herbal medicine, Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, Homeopathic medicine, and Ozone therapy, and all of the many modalities that do, in fact, work much better and more wholesomely WITH the bodies desire to heal itself….

And I must forewarn all consumers that I have been victimized and bamboozled by Charlatans who advertise that they are all of these positive things, but they are, horrifyingly, fraudulent.

Be careful! There are great Doctors and some very, very bad ones… and then there are some mediocre ones who are uninformed and not able to service you or your pet.

Command the best for yourself in your life.

“All of the people in my life whom I consider to be close friends or colleagues are thinkers…. The people I seek out and choose to spend time with all challenge me with their thinking and their actions. They are constantly trying to grow and learn. … The writer of Proverbs observed that sharp people sharpen one another, just as iron sharpens iron. If you want to be a sharp thinker, be around sharp people.”

–John C. Maxwell, from his book, “How Successful People Think.”

Food that kills is processed, canned food that has in its ingredients dangerous preservatives, ‘rendered’ animals [euthanized pets], and other toxins that literally kill your pet slowly until their liver, kidneys, heart, and other organs give up.

Why are most Vets not taught this in their Vet School training? Great question. NO information is given on Nutrition whatsoever.

Hmmmm. Would that have anything to do with the fact that the Pharmaceutical companies that push toxic Vaccines, drugs, and invasive surgeries are the very sources of FUNDING for these Vet Schools? Gee, how convenient.

You need to be your pet’s advocate. Learn to do the research and to seek knowledgeable, honorable professionals who truly care. It is all too easy to get sidetracked into the web of a Charlatan.

Use your INTUITION! If someone is at all nasty, impatient, incomplete in their information, or just does not seem right in some way– get away from them. Be clear on what is right for your standards.

Ethics should be at the top of your list. They are for me now.

Some of the best foods for your pets:

1.) home cooked food! Yes, your pet deserves some lovingly prepared food by you, Mom or Dad.

2.) Vitamins and Minerals + Probiotics and Enzymes! Mix them into your pets food. They are good for the immune system, digestion, teeth, coat, eyes, brain, and overall longevity of your beloved best friend.

Some Supplement brands that I like: www.frequencyfoods.com; www.oregonswildharvest.com [Milk Thistle for the Liver], www.dogcatappetitesolutions.com, www.bioage.com [Micro Algae]

Life’s Abundance is one of my favorite canned and dry pet foods. I buy both for my beloved pets. I have it sent directly from Florida. It was created by Dr. Jane Bicks, a wonderful Holistic Veterinarian who wanted to make a healthy pet food for pets.

Some other good brands are www.Weruva.com
www.halopets.com/\"Spots Stew\"; www.merrickpetcare.comwww.bluebuffalo.com; www.petguard.com; www.omaspride.com… Ask your local [NON CHAIN] pet store about locally made, organic and healthy pet foods that may only be available in your area.

Remember, your pet needs variety. They also need fruits and Veggies just like we do, so be sure to blend some smoothies for them and mix a little into their food.

Lastly, be careful with any elective surgical procedures that are suggested by a Vet. Many Vets make their money from such procedures but they may not be at all necessary and may even prove to be very dangerous or even fatal to your family’s beloved pet.

Get a third party opinion, and seek a second and even a third physical exam and opinion of different Vets you believe are trustworthy.

The point of this show today was to forewarn all consumers that the very people we have been indoctrinated to trust [often without question] are not truly the people we can blindly believe in. Doctors can be bad people.

Not all professionals are professional. Be your own advocate, and please be an advocate for your Animals.

Selah.

You Need A Watchdog For Your Vet

When my much-loved 17 year old cat was approaching the advanced Renal Disease stage, I was blindly believing in an egotistical, misguided Vet who repeatedly told me that subcutaneous fluids were “not necessary” and that he did not ‘believe in them’ because, according to him, “it doesn’t work.”

After two months of being rushed off the phone by this self-proclaimed “Classical Homeopathic and Holistic” Vet, where my inquiries of her needing more water and desperately trying to drink as she would cry were totally ignored, brushed off and downplayed…. I finally sobered up out of my brainwashed state and rushed her to another Animal Hospital one weekend in the Spring of 2005.

My baby, named Furchild Chapin, was and is my Soul Mate, Best Friend, Companion, and eternal love.

She was given intravenous I.V. right away, and stayed in this hospital for 6 days.

I made the mistake of blindly trusting the first doctor, mainly because I am Holistic myself and forgot to recognize how advertising, marketing, and PR can make a bad, uncaring, criminal Vet look like anything wonderful.

My interview on September 27, 2010, with Journalist and Animal Companion Activist Julie Catalano, revealed how COMMON and pervasive this bad medicine truly is in America.

Why? is my question. Why would any Vet deny and omit important protocols from an innocent animal?

Julie had eerily similar experiences with a Vet down in Texas. The abuse, harassment, overt arrogance, and blaming the victim were all horrors that Julie experienced….. and I also experienced and thousands of others who have found a voice on the internet…. much to the chagrin of the corrupt cronies who put themselves onto State Vet Boards.

Julie Catalano has made it her life’s mission to educate and awaken the consumer to the truth behind the facade that is literally out-of-control in all of the medical field, and surprisingly in a high percentage in the Veterinary Industry.

Make no mistake, your cat or dog [or other beloved animal companion] is all too often just another paycheck for some ignorant practices. Your feelings, questions, VALUES, and requests mean nothing to these greed, and ego-driven house of horrors.

No kidding here. The stories are totally horrifying.

Check out two websites:

Julie Catalano’s: www.vetabusenetwork.com
&
Greg Munson’s: www.vetsfromhell.net

Arm yourself with knowledge, and get yourself an ADVOCATE, meaning: get yourself a second and third opinion from an unrelated, healthy-minded, kind-hearted, and totally knowledgeable Vet who will look over everything and advise you. It could save your Pet’s life.

Bad Vets are counterfeit practitioners who put on a “happy” external face to the world, but behind the scenes is a shop of horrors. INVESTIGATE. DO YOUR BACKGROUND CHECKS. ASK QUESTIONS. RESEARCH. GET AN ADVOCATE.

The truth behind the Vet industry is so ugly that every animal lover must stand up. Now.

It is time to overhaul an industry that has deceived the public into thinking that they are safe at the Vet with their beloved, one-and-only family’s Best Friend.

“When the student is ready the teacher will appear, sometimes camouflaged as a four-legged companion.”
