Dogs with allergies are common. It wasn’t always like this. But with the ‘improvements’ in veterinary care and commercial dog food, allergies, and many other health problems, have exploded. To a thinking person, this trend should set off alarm bells.
Acute allergic reactions can take many forms. For example, sneezing is the most common and immediate reaction to an allergy. This can be followed by a clear nasal or eye discharge. There may be difficulty in breathing, as the tissue around the throat swells up, occluding the air passages. Hives or other skin problems are a common reaction to an allergy, which is often itchy or irritating.
Anyone suffering with allergies has a very low immune system. A healthy dog, with a strong immune system, will never be affected with allergies. So something is undermining your dogs immune system.
There are at least three critically important areas that can do this.
Diet is probably the most important, simply by its daily consumption. It is doubtful that there is a commercial dog food that is not low in quality protein and natural nutrients, but high in toxic chemicals. Commercial dog food is made by corporations whose only interest is their bottom line.
Cheap ingredients are the order of the day. The money spent on pretty packets, convincing advertising and psychological tricks. It is very easy to trick people today as the current educational system has killed the ability to question and to think for oneself. Most people follow the herd and their nose, with scant thought to the consequences.
The second area that has contributed to an enormous increase in dogs with allergies is veterinary medicine. No longer are vets trained to search for causes. Now, the colleges are run by the pharmaceutical industries, whose only interest is their bottom line. Vets are not the same as they once were. Now, if they don’t tow the line of pushing vaccines and drugs, they are prevented from practicing.
All drugs, and perhaps particularly vaccines, meddle with the DNA, suppress the immune system and load up the toxins. No wonder there are increasing numbers of dogs with allergies. A weak immunity leads to more ill health.
The third important area that can contribute to ill health generally is how much stress your dogs has. Stress comes about from poor living conditions, living outside their natural living conditions, angry people within the family, discordance within the neighbourhood, and so forth.
- Animals dislike anger. They know it weakens them, so they will do their utmost to avoid it and those people who express it.
- Dogs are pack animals, so can’t live happily without company.
- A fearful dog will be constantly unhappy, eventually leading to ill health.
- A dog who is not protected from the elements will be very stressed.
The best ways to contribute to your dogs good health and longevity include:
- feeding your dog a quality, natural diet
- conforming to the canine pack mentality and showing real leadership qualities
- using holistic health care, especially homeopathy, for all your dogs ailments
This means that it is possible to have a healthy dog, whatever he is currently suffering with. Use the problem to move forward. Problems are simply challenges for you to work out or find a better way.
Dogs with allergies can be very successfully treated, rather than simply managing the effects, by searching for the cause and mending that.
