Vet Shortage in the Bubble Economy II

Watch any pet food ad on the TV and it will be glamourising the ownership of pets, regardless of your ability to afford the purchase price and ongoing maintenance needs. It will communicate the idea that the packaged/canned products provide the most suitable, safe sustenance for every pet little and large. 

The vet profession riding the wave of false and misleading information gains millions of patients—all of which are suffering, to lesser or greater extent, the effects of their junk food diet.

When the vet profession blithely ignores the junk diet connection and instead engages in endless testing and failed treatments, then I say the profession is operating in a bubble economy.

As an example of over-servicing see the almost $6000 specialist fees paid for a failed treatment when a kilo of chicken wings and a few rabbit heads would have been both CHEAPER and EFFECTIVE.

In the context of the vet bubble economy three private veterinary practices and several specialist vets at SASH (Sydney Small Animal Specialist Hospital) exhibited lamentable blindness. Since 1991 Australian vets have been well informed about the junk pet food hoax.

In my view all were guilty of serious negligence possibly of criminal neglect, cruelty and fraud.

Had the client fed her kitten appropriately none of the estimated 10 vets involved with the case would have been needed –NONE!

How’s that for relieving the pressure on the vet shortage???

And for good measure, I say that is indicative of almost EVERY case treated at every vet hospital in every country in the world.
