Spending on pets is up, but are they healthier as a result?

American Bully dog in carOn the surface this might show more concern and care for pets, and we’re certain that pet owners feel they are spending more because they believe they care more for their pets than previous generations may have. However, just because more money is being spent does not necessarily equate to better health or quality of life for pets.


Here is a news item from 2014 on this topic – and not much has changed in fact it’s only gotten worse!

Much of the extra spending IS on pet care or what most pet owners consider “pet health” when in fact it is the current pet health care system that is behind them needing to spend more and more money on the care of their pets.

As veterinarian Dr. Patricia Jordan puts it “Natural News has linked top medical problems to vaccines, with diabetes being just one of those common problems. Of course the vaccine companies make the drugs to treat vaccine induced disease and also the behavioral problems that we now have drugs for. How about the fact that this rise in behavioral problems come from unnecessary repeat jabs of vaccines?

The Natural News article:

I’d add that feeding nothing but processed foods to our pets from a bag or can instead of a species appropriate raw diet is also a huge contributor to the health problems. Funny thing is, “science researchers” took this long to figure out that well yes indeed a raw diet IS good for our CARNIVORE pets! DUH! Raw Food Study Claims Diet Is Safe and Nutritional

In addition the toxic pesticides we put on them marketed as prevention against flea, ticks, and mosquitoes add to the toxic soup we’re subjecting pets to and labeling it “health care“.

My work as an animal naturopaths is huge because my aim is to help people understand not only what health is, but to put the focus back on promoting health rather than treating disease which is REALLY what the current “health care system” is all about.


So what can you do? Well if I tell you that, will you take advantage of what I tell you???

You would? REALLY?

Great because….

I’ve provided several things to help you get proactive in the care of your dogs:

1. I have the DOGgone Wellness Program to help you so that you will rarely need a veterinarian for anything other than a true emergency IF you’ll complete the program as well as implement what you learn in it. By the way, it’s everything I do for my own dogs as well.

2. You can listen to my podcast, the DOGgone Truth – it is free! However, to build community and share some of the REAL meat and bones from our previous podcast I’m going to be offering those archives as premium content on the same podcast. I started doing that, changed my mind and now I’m back to it because podcasting is the medium I love most to share, encourage, empower and transform the lives of others. It gives you it all in bite sizes as well. To build on community there through the Podbean App, I’m going to offer tiered bonus content WEEKLY and MONTHLY based upon YOUR questions available ONLY to those who subscribe to the premium content. It WILL be so affordable you’ll feel silly if you don’t take advantage of it. So stay tuned to this blog because it is going down yo!

3. You can take ALL the free classes NOW that I offer on OilyDog.org before they go to paid content! Some will remain free but not all so take advantage NOW okay? I SO want for YOU to be empowered and YOUR dogs to BE WELL!

I don’t do all those Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales here on Aspenbloom Pet Care but rather I DO give you valuable tools so you can transform the lives of your dogs. I share my own journey and it’s about to get much more transparent and real as the podcast progresses. I want you to know that if I could change the paradigm in my own life that I wrote about earlier in this post then YOU absolutely can too! And I’m here to help you do just that through the above.

Here are a couple of podcasts that can get you started right now and then just go listen to all the previous ones and the new ones that come out each and every Tuesday!

So don’t wait until everything is in place, just get started now and soon we’ll be a booming community working to better the lives of dogs together – AND ourselves in the process!

Don’t forget to get the FREE Podbean App (available for both Android and iPhone) in advance so you’ll be ready to rock’n’ roll when I get this whole premium thang set up okay? Plus you can listen to the current podcast NOW, the DOGgone Truth! And take those free classes. And if you’re daring, take the DOGgone Wellness program too, you AND your dog will be glad you did!

Until next time…

Have a pawsitively tail, waggin’, NATUROPATHICALLY healthy day!
