Why Natural Rearing – From a Pet Owner’s Perspective

By: Dr. Kim Bloomer I’m going to take you on a journey to show you how and why I came to the conclusion that natural rearing is the only way to raise an animal (any animal). When I was growing up, I remember that animals were treated a little differently than they are today. For example, for the most part animals lived outdoors and had a particular function or “job” to perform. Cats were mousers. Dogs were guardians. Chickens produced eggs. And so on. All of them lived outdoors. The only pet that I know lived indoors with me when I was a toddler was my Pekingese dog named...

Inherited Vaccinosis?

“Vaccinosis is a disease syndrome caused by a weakness that is precipitated by vaccination” ~ Dr. Charles Loop A number of chronic disease conditions are proving to be related to vaccinations. Multiple, sucessive generations of vaccinated animals appear to be bringing out deep, chronic dis-ease syndromes in our companion animals. Some examples of vaccinosis/chronic diseases include autoimmune diseases, such as: irritable bowel disorders, pancreititis hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism skin disorders Cancers, etc. As natural rearing breeders, it is of the utmost importance that we...

Epigenetics – Shape Shifting Our Puppy’s Genes

As most of us know, breeding dogs (or any animal for that matter)  is considered to be a combination of  art and science; if we were to ignore the art factor, we would be  robbing ourselves of the enjoyment of creativity. If we were to ignore the science factor, we would be quite foolish.  If we really want to be an accomplished and reputable dog breeder, and leave our chosen breed in better genetic shape than when we began breeding, then we need to pay attention to advances in scientific knowledge. One of the most facinating and important recent advances in the science of breeding is the...

Environmental Estrogens Dogs Fertility & Reproduction

Our Dog’s Fertility & Reproduction is Being Affected by Environmental Estrogens By Dr. Jeannie Thomason I was going to list as many of the reasons for and the many toxins being found; to be affecting fertility and reproduction in our dogs along with a comment on what effect each one has on our dogs and ourselves.   However,  it was getting to be crazy long and reading like a long scientific report or study, sure to bore even the more geeky dog breeders out there!   lol So I have re-written it and attempted to keep the information as condensed and concise as possible in the hope...

Study Shows that Environmental Chemicals Impact Dog Semen Quality

Environmental Chemicals Impact Dog Semen Quality – Duh! Here is an interesting report on a population of breeding dogs exhibiting a 26 year (1988–2014) decline in sperm quality and a concurrent increased incidence of cryptorchidism in male offspring (1995–2014). A decline in the number of males born relative to the number of females was also observed. Environmental chemicals (ECs), including diethylhexyl phthalate (DEHP) and polychlorinated bisphenol 153 (PCB153), were detected in adult dog testes AND (get this:)  commercial dog foods at concentrations reported to perturb reproductive...

Collagen, Joint Disease and Vaccines

Oh My!   Collagen, Joint Disease & Vaccines. What do these three things have to do with each other? Collagen, as you may know is the elastic protein that holds skin together. As we and our pets age, the amount and quality of collagen in our bodies starts to diminish. Collagen is found in abundance in the joints and connective tissue of the body. In fact, collagen makes up 70 to 90% of muscles, tendons, ligaments and other joint supporting tissues and approximately 30% of the protein in the body. As happens in the skin, when collagen breaks down in the body, the joints become less...
