For the longest time people have placed their trust in the whole medical machine (yes I said machine as in Matrix) thinking they were working towards the “protection and safety” (nice propaganda words) of our pets so they could have long and healthy lives. The truth is quite distant from what people have believed. Sadly, from years of propaganda supporting the lie, people have come to believe that this grand...
