Just to get you doubters thinking - I have 4 dogs, all rescues, ages 2, 7, 9, 11. With the exception of 1 dog, I adopted all of them around the age of 1 year old.

The 11 year-old used to suffer from seizures which amazingly occurred after vaccinations, heartworm meds, or flea treatments. She's been seizure free for over 5 years and does not receive any vaccinations, heartworm meds, or flea poisons nor do any of my other dogs. This dog also had severe allergies and I spent a fortune on treatments at the vet which did absolutely no good. She had allergy tests (very expensive) and series after series of treatments. She no longer has any allergies but this happened only AFTER I stopped poisoning her system.

All 4 dogs are tested each spring ($20 per dog) for heartworms, all remain negative and have for years.

The 9 year old suffered a torn knee ligament and received acupuncture instead of surgery and is absolutely fine 2 years later. I located a holistic vet who further convinced me the surgery wasn't needed. She was right. My neighbors spent $2500.00 for surgery for their dog for the exact same reason and their dog still limps...mine doesn't.

All 4 dogs are dining on healthy holistic food which they eat with a tablespoon of plain yogurt.

Yearly vaccines are nothing but poison and are totally NOT necessary. Same goes for the heartworm meds & the flea treatments. It's all POISON that people have been conditioned to believe means "doing the right thing" for their pet. Your vet recommends it, your friends use it on their pets and yada yada yada.

It has taken me a very long time to reach these conclusions regarding dogs. I've owned dogs for almost 37 years and am just now understanding what they really need.

I use a natural shampoo & spray which contains NEEM to control fleas and it works great.

My dogs are VERY healthy and I believe it's mainly due to the fact that they eat holistic food and are NOT poisoned by all those products people seem to think a dog needs.

I seem to finally be getting more savvy....and my dogs thank me for it!
