Vet bills are on the up
According to a report by MORE TH>N, British dog parents are spending on average a whopping £440 a year on their dog’s vet bills. And 18% are spending an astonishing £109.19 a month on regular medication. That’s an eye-watering £1,310.28 a year. People could feed their dog proper food for less than that. And do away with those expensive vet bills for dogs!
Now okay, sometimes veterinary intervention can’t be avoided. If your dog is seriously injured in an accident for example. Then naturally he or she has to be taken to the vet. But if your dog has the likes of a skin problem or an ear infection, why wouldn’t you first consider what might be causing the problem?
Vet visits are stressful for dogs
Before putting your dog through the stress of a visit to the vet. Your vet is only going to deal with the symptoms. He or she doesn’t necessarily have the time or the expertise to deal with the real issue. So they’re likely to treat your dog with steroids instead of finding a cure for the problem. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of steroids unless they’re absolutely necessary.
Some will tell you that your dog produces its own steroids. It does. But these are natural steroids produced by the adrenal glands. The cortisol your dog produces naturally is not the same as the synthetically-created cortisone typically prescribed by a vet when a dog has a skin infection. Cortisone is an immunosuppressant. It suppresses the immune system. This can have negative side-effects such as high blood pressure and increased susceptibility to other infections. Why would you potentially risk the life of your dog when there are proven, safe and completely natural options? Options that will treat the cause of the problem and not just temporarily mask the symptoms.
