I just read an article on Dr. Falconer’s site about the remedies he is selling for sufferers of the epidemic of dog flu that is now apparently raging across the country. I say “apparently” because it seems to be an epidemic only in the minds of the people who bring us the “news”. I say “news” because, impossible as it is for the general public to accept, the media really does CHOOSE what makes the news. THEY decide what to cover, based mostly on their own agenda of spreading fear and selling products, a large percentage of which are either pharmaceutical or create the perceived need for them.

In 2011 there was a similar “scare”, and “outbreaks” were noted in California, New York and Texas. Here’s a rundown of the numbers:

  • California, eight cases. Five in the Los Angeles area, three in the Sacramento area.
  • New York region, 10 cases. Three were in New York City, three on Long Island, and one each near Poughkeepsie, N.Y., Middletown, N.Y., Hartford, Conn., and Delaware.
  • Texas, 10 cases. Five were in San Antonio, five in Dallas/Fort Worth.

There are 77.5 million owned dogs in the U.S., and you can bet that a big chunk of them live in California, New York and Texas, since all of those states have more than their proportionate share of the human population. If these numbers constitute an “epidemic” or even “outbreak”, then we will have to change the dictionary definition of those words.

So let’s dispense with the fear right away so we can take back control of this situation. Dog flu is caused by one thing only — mis-feeding — and nothing that we cause ourselves need be feared. It just needs to NOT be caused! Doesn’t that make sense? Doesn’t that give US all the power?

Btw, I am not talking about improving your dog’s “immune system”. There is no such thing as immunity in nature! If causes are there, no dog can be “immune” from their effects.

As I mentioned, there is ONE cause of flu, and that is the accumulation of waste in the body. Flu is like any of the constructive symptom complexes that the body (dogs and humans) uses to get rid of accumulated waste. Since commercial foods (including commercial RAW foods) are very productive of waste in a dog’s body, and since commercial foods are commonly fed, flu symptoms are also extremely common. In fact the only bewildering part of the whole dog flu situation is that every single commercially fed dog doesn’t have it! That dogs mostly survive the daily dietary onslaught their mis-trained owners visit upon them is truly a testament to their resilience.

There is only one reason why something like dog “flu” ever makes the news. The media, who are owned by the same corporations that make pharmaceutical products, would like us to buy more vaccines. If the media was about learning the best ways to keep dogs healthy and passing that information along to dog owners, this website and others like it would be a regular feature on the news. People would be advised to feed their dogs as naturally as possible, using the model that nature provides us to this day. As it is, that information is opposed and suppressed not only by so-called health professionals but by their minions in the media as well.

The best thing we can do for our dogs where these scary news stories are concerned is NOT to run out and have them vaccinated or even buy some expensive homeopathic “remedy”, but to do NOTHING. Nothing except feed properly, of course.

Cancer Reversed with Raw Food

May 8, 2017

Petey’s Story Back in 2002, I got a voicemail from my mom saying she and my dad needed some “puppy advice”. I had no idea what she could possibly be referring to, because my parents have never had or really liked pets. When I finally connected with my mom, I nearly fell off my chair […]

5 Tips for preventing and reversing kidney disease in cats

March 23, 2017

  Stop feeding commercial cat foods of all kinds. It is no coincidence that the increase in renal problems in cats has followed the increased use of commercial cat foods.  Cats are designed to eat the freshly-killed bodies of herbivorous animals.  What you see on the shelf at your supermarket or vet’s office does not even remotely […]

Top 5 Criteria for Choosing Dog Food

February 10, 2017

1.  THE FOOD MUST BE RAW It was during the millions of years that dogs have been on this planet that their dietary requirements were formed, and nothing that’s happened in the last 100,000 years, including domestication, has changed their basic needs. No matter how the pet food industry tries to spin the facts, dietary […]

Does Raw Food Digest Faster than Kibble?

January 24, 2017

A website called “Raw Feeding Community” attempted to put this question to bed once and for all, so they conducted an experiment with a dog being fed kibble and raw food separately, about 10 days apart. Both meals were consumed with barium, so that the movement of the food through the digestive tract could be radiographed and […]

Cat “colds”, aka Feline Upper Respiratory Infection

January 10, 2017

What are the real causes of cat “colds”?… Cat colds are caused by the same factors that cause eliminative crises in humans. That is, the accumulation of waste.  This accumulation is mostly caused by unhealthy eating habits, with other factors being remotely secondary.  In cats, the feeding of foods that are not entirely digestible is […]

Euthanized Pets in Commercial Pet Foods

December 18, 2016

I recently revisited a website that tackles some of the more troubling aspects of commercial pet food. Since there are no commercial pet foods that can be considered good by any standard of measure, the best I can say about the site is that it does a pretty good job of separating bad foods from […]

An Easy, Permanent Resolution for Ear “Infections”

December 1, 2016

My own experience with ear “infection” I learned the hard way about how serious ear inflammation can be after my Cockapoo, “Coco”, went deaf at age 9. Because of my ignorance, my dog had to live more than half his life without the benefit of hearing voice commands, approaching cars and growling food-possessive dogs, one […]
