Shocking Expose' - Veterinarians (page two of two)

Pet insurance is simply a license to print money

So unsurprisingly, the average middle-class family feels more comfortable having this insurance. 

They have medical insurance for their children, so it’s only natural that they want the same for their family dog or cat. Insurance for a pet dog or cat costs on average from $60 to over $300 a year. 

Worryingly, if you have pet insurance you can be sure your vet is more likely to offer your pet treatments – because your vet knows you won’t be paying so you can afford it.

But, however you look at it, insurance is simply a licence to print money. 

Unfortunately, the only creatures insurance helps are vets. If you are a loving owner you will not want to put your pet through cruel, lengthy and costly procedures.

And as this is all insurers cover – they do not provide for any useful essentials such as neutering, vaccinations or teeth cleaning – there is no point to them.

But vets aren’t only guilty of treating animals when there is no problem. Sadly they are guilty of creating problems in the first place.

Take bulldogs. They have been hideously bred to have a characteristic collapsed face. This restricts breathing and stops them panting properly.

Ridiculous as it may seem, they have also created an animal that can’t breathe fast enough to have sex. So a bulldog must be artificially inseminated by a vet using a general anesthetic.

Vets have created their own market

One of the reasons there are so many vets now is that vets have created their own market.

I find it outrageous that, given their role, any vet criticises Cruft’s for exhibiting these dog breeds. After all, it is the vets themselves who have aided and abetted these atrocities.And this practice certainly isn’t confined to bulldogs.

We have dachshunds bred with elongated spines so they look ‘attractive’ for their breed.

But these sausage dogs are prone to slipped discs and back problems which, in turn, makes more money for vets who do many operations a year to ‘help’ these issues (most of which do not work and cause more suffering to the dog.)
We have cats that can’t breathe because of their overly flat noses and weep constantly from eyes that are too large, other cats and dogs without fur that can’t go out in the sunshine as they will burn.

The current fashionable craze for miniature dogs is also damaging.

These dogs are prized on their tininess – so the smallest dogs are chosen but in reality these are the runts of the litter that used to be allowed to die as they were so weak.

In turn vets are simply creating weaker animals. They are going against the force of nature, Charles Darwin’s natural selection. And because weaker animals are surviving they need more medical care from vets who force them to survive.

This is great news for vets and the reason for their proliferation. But surely not for animal welfare, which they pledged, when they took their veterinary oath, to put first.

So where does the loving pet owner stand in all this?
Common sense must prevail. A loving pet owner does not humanize their cat or dog but realizes it is an animal.

The loving owner does not want to maximize their pet’s life at any cost but puts their animal’s welfare first.

Do not fear the death of your pet when the time comes. Instead, embrace it and ensure your pet has a good death in the same way you gave it a good life.
