Why are our pets getting cancer?

We are seeing a staggering rise in cancer among dogs and cats. In the past the leading cause of death was an accident or injury, and some of the experts are saying that it is a normal phenomenon because our pets are getting older. Others disagree: What is killing us is also killing our animal companions – the food we eat and lack of exercise.

My Dalmatian has in recent weeks had a persistent skin rash, which is not uncommon for the breed. I thought I was doing the right thing by feeding her an expensive organic tinned food, until someone advised me to change the diet. A herbal mix with fresh rabbit meat worked almost immediately.

Our animals are getting the same diseases as humans for the same reasons. We are eating the wrong foods and not exercising enough. Labradors, German Shepherds and Dalmatians are large dogs that need a lot of exercise and get fat when they don’t move. Nearly all the processed pet foods have dangerously high percentages of preservatives and sugars in them. Pets, especially cats, sometimes shun the healthy food because they have become so addicted to the sugars in their diet.

Dogs that groom themselves a lot pick up toxins from the immediate environment. I recently heard of a German Shepherd where a postmortem showed exceptionally high levels of toxins in the liver. The dog had a habit of licking its paws frequently and had picked up most of the toxins from floor cleaners!

Symptoms of cancer in pets are much the same as in humans. Lethargy, blood in urine, and abnormal lumps. A coat losing its shine, shows some problem in the digestive system. Next to our digestive system our skin is a major detoxing agent. An imbalance in the digestive system shows up in the skin. In Chinese medicine unhealthy nails, flaky skin and the hair condition are considered common sign of poor digestion and the inability of the body to digest vital nutrients.

What is happening to our pets is happening to us. The compound effect of sugar-laced processed foods, lack of exercise and a toxic environment inevitably takes its toll.
