Open any vet publication these days and you’re sure to find angst about the vet shortage crisis.
But never do you find any discussion of the junk pet food/vet bubble economy and that the problems are of the vet profession’s own making.
In the 1860s Jack Spratt and Charles Cruft conspired to promote dog ownership and the feeding of said dogs with harmful junk, the output of their giant factories.
Fast forward and when the vet profession lost the farm work, it turned its attention to the burgeoning pet trade.
Promoting pet ownership and feeding the pets harmful/poisonous junk is very good for vet business. Plenty of opportunity to overservice with endless failed investigations and failed treatments – IF VETS IGNORE THEIR ETHICAL AND MORAL OBLIGATIONS.
Seems to me it’s past time to confront the confronting evidence, prick the bubble and let the pressure out of the system. Suddenly a global population of pets not needing the vets will provide instant relief.
What could be simpler?
