Thursday, I went to the doctor
with Poison Ivy outbreak and along with some ointment, he put me on a
prescription diet of Corn Chips, which has proven most convenient! He sells
them right there; the company not only funded his education but still keeps him
up to date regarding nutrition, therefore no more time and money wasted on
Chips are so very tasty that I can't eat enough of them, thus
won't miss all that cooking and grocery shopping; my weight has improved as I
need to drink more water; and his practice also makes a nice profit selling the
chips. Sorry, perennially healthy people: These special Prescription chips
are available only through doctors!
Far fetched? Well, if you believe that
veterinarians are no different than doctors, then why
hesitate to ask an M.D. what junk foods he'll be "prescribing" (and selling)
during your next checkup?
Just this week when I had my dog in again for diarrhea, thyroid symptoms and
chronic skin infections, I was telling my vets about "Those Internet People
Saying Stuff" such as having completely healed their chronically ailing pets
themselves by spending a fortune on "Those Fancy Dog Foods" loaded with MEAT when we
all know that "feeding tests have proven" carnivorous mammals much prefer the
taste of corn, glutens, peanut hulls, restaurant grease, sawdust, soy mill run
and cheap melamine filler from China anyway!
My carnivorous companion animals are plump and pleasant and overall very HAPPY
on their special prescription diets. One dog even tolerates dreaded car
rides because he knows he'll get his special treats when we go to the vet for
his inflamed bowels, diarrhea, throwing up, urinary tract infections, and
potential bladder stone removal! I'm taking another of my little carnivores
along for his chronic itching, vomiting, and a hypothyroidism blood re-test, so
obviously I'm far too busy to be scouring the Web reading "Stuff" by "Those
As a side note, these things (hyperthyroidism, bowel issues, urinary tract
infections) must be contagious as my pets keep catching them from each other
just when one dog's this-or-that might be healing! I've considered
quarantining although the Vets say it's "pretty common for both kinds of
animals to get them" - and it's not like it's bloody tumor, intestinal growths,
seizures, and/or kidney-liver failure, (yet) so I feel better.
I really get a kick out of my little carnivores' fangy-looking
teeth and the weird way they are shaped. I do wonder just why they are shaped
that way instead of like cows' and horses' teeth but maybe I misunderstood what I learned in Biology
Class. Considering the Veterinary profession has had much
more schooling than I have and has apparently totally forgotten as well, I'm not
Some of "Those Internet People" are actually DVMs and have written books such as
"The New Animal Doctor's Answer Book"; and the brand new "Not Fit For A Dog! The
TRUTH About Manufactured cat and dog food" and other such "silly stuff" of which
the vast majority has no clue. Here's a sampling: A Dr. Michael W. Fox has a
lot of secret cure information and research unknown to the vast majority, which
would no doubt include my vets. Although this Dr. Fox writes a syndicated
newspaper column in The Real World, his healing secrets will probably remain
secrets to The Vast Majority because he's not Michael J. Fox.
Dr. Fox actually says things like: "A 2004 listing in order of frequency of
the ten most common claims of over 6,400 medical conditions that Veterinary Pet
Insurance Inc received from cat and dog owners certainly reveals a high
incidence of the most probable 'junk food' related diseases in the dog and cat
population of the U.S., with the exception of bite abscesses in cats and soft
tissue trauma in dogs, (both conditions being associated with animals who are
allowed to free-roam).
"For dogs: Ear infection; Stomach
inflammation; Skin irritation; Tumors/growths; Skin infection/hot spots; Urinary
tract infection; Osteoarthritis; Hypothyroidism; Inflammation of the intestinal
tract; Soft tissue trauma.
"For cats: Urinary Tract Infection; Stomach inflammation; Kidney disease;
Bite Abscess; Diabetes; Hyperthyroidism; Inflamed colon; Conjunctivitis; Ear
infection; Skin irritation
"As for the contribution of highly processed commercial diets to the sickness
and suffering of cats and dogs, the fact remains that animals often make
spectacular recoveries, not when put on special prescription diets, but when
taken off all such 'junk' convenience foods, and are instead fed balanced diets
appropriate for their species (e.g. no cereal-based diets for carnivorous...) -

Check these Harvard Law Paper (1) questions because nobody knows the
1) Can anyone enlighten as to any actual
medicine and/or nutritional benefits within these examples of "Prescription
Formulas" (main ingredients listed below) which are "prescribed" by
Canid, mammal in the order Carnivora (Canine): Ground Whole Grain
Corn, Powdered Cellulose, Peanut Hulls, Chickenby-product Meal, Chicken Liver
Flavor, Soybean Meal, Soybean Mill Run, Dried Egg Product, Soybean Oil, Corn
Gluten Meal... preserved with BHT, BHA and Ethoxyquin.
b. Felid, obligatory carnivorous species (Feline): Ground Whole Grain
Corn, Pork Fat (preserved with mixed tocopherols and citric acid), Chicken
By-Product Meal, Soybean and Corn Gluten Meal, Soybean Mill Run, Chicken Liver
Flavor, Calcium Sulfate, Dried Egg Product, Soybean Oil...
2) WHY would a
client-consumer totally suspend all belief and logic in regard to these species
and actually feed this kind of dog food? (Because it's being labeled and sold as
"Prescription", therefore it’s perceived as MEDICINE.)
3) Can anybody cite any actual MEDICINE in these "prescription formulas"?
(Answer is right on the INGREDIENT LABELS.)
4) Then how can they possibly justify the PRICE -- as much as $75.00-- which
naive clients shell out, especially when comparing the INGREDIENTS side-by-side
with those in bargain brands?
5) Can they also explain why they think carnivorous companion animals should be
consuming carcinogenics which are banned for use in human food; sawdust
of PINE tree ... peanut HULLS?
a.) Are they
even aware of just what Ethoxyquin is? (An FDA regulated PESTICIDE
originally developed for use in the production of rubber.)
6) How many pet owners are aware that eating these things is what actually
causes the most common ailments and diseases in our companion animals? Don't
they know that a carnivore's dentition and digestive systems do not permit
efficient processing of grains and vegetable matter (let alone the inexplicable
"things" listed above) -- Can anyone deny this?
7) Would we consider it ethical and legal if our family physicians had a
comparable "relationship" with the Snack Food Industry and convinced everybody that
corn chip prescription diets were necessary - while they profited from the
corn chip sales, as well as drug company perks for additional medications sold
to mask the ailments resulting from such a strict diet? Would we accept this as
we unhesitatingly do for our chronically ailing, over-drugged companion animals.
8) Are there
any differences between the Oath veterinarians took with that of Physicians/M.D.s?
Naive companion animal owners are told by trusted veterinarians that their pets
"need" to ingest these "special" foods in order to get well, yet corn (tough to
digest) - along with soy and wheat which are also prevalent in most of the
special cat and dog foods
- are among the most common, proven causes of allergies and other health issues
in dogs and cats. Oh, and guess who are among the biggest stockholders in the
companies that make the pet foods most often seen in veterinary lobbies?
And nobody's ever warned us?! I had to find it all out from "Those
Internet People" after having learned it the hard way because virtually
everybody who should be alerting companion animal owners to this scam is
invariably tied to, and profits from, the Commercial Pet Food Industry. Unlike
Physicians, Veterinarians only have to answer to their own governing body which
incidentally, is largely funded by the Commercial Pet Food Industry.
9) So guess
who gets to "teach" our Veterinarians about NUTRITION?
I know I should be thanking the Worthless Mainstream Media for alert,
prompt reporting and headlines which WOULD have prevented widespread confusion,
heartbreak and sparing of countless companion animals from easily preventable
ailments, diseases and premature deaths. BUT - The only ones who, apparently, knew anything at all and have been
sharing such information all this time were just ... THOSE PEOPLE “Just
Saying STUFF On The Internet!!”
