Re: Secrets about Healing Never Taught to Vets…


Good morning fellow animal advocates, pet lovers, and dedicated Veterinary Secrets readers.

I was asked by a reader exactly what is the “big deal” about Veterinary Secrets Revealed?

The reader was wondering if most of what I teach is simply a condensed version of Veterinary School for Pet Owners.

And my one word answer..


I did learn a lot about animal disease in Veterinary School.

I was taught conventional ways to treat disease.

I was told to Vaccinate yearly.

I was taught to feed “all in one nutrition” commercial kibble. One of our big sponsors was Hills, and as Veterinary Students, we received discounts on Science Diet food for our own pets. The thought being that if you feed it to your own pets, then you are likely to recommend it to your clients.

I was taught that Home Diets were BAD.

I was taught that you would be CRAZY to feed RAW pet food.

I was told about the science and benefits of a variety of “new” medications..
Everything we talked about was backed by research.

I was taught NOTHING about alternative healing, except from professors telling me that it doesn’t work.

Here is what I heard about the various types of alternate options:

Herbal Medicine… Doesn’t work.

Homeopathy… NO scientific basis – a waste of time.

Chiropractic… It won’t help pets and may cause harm.

Supplements… Most are useless, and only make pet owners feel like they are doing something.

So I went into the world of Veterinary Medicine practicing conventionally.

Conventional medications… and their side effects.

Surgery for many things.

Talking clients out of any alternate option.

Telling them why they should NEVER feed Raw Food.

Extolling the benefits of yearly vaccines.
In fact it wasn’t until my beloved older dog Hoochie died that I really made the switch.
I truly believe that much of what I did contributed to his death.

Most of you have heard the story before, but the quick summary is that he developed
cancer at age 8, and I suspect part of this was due to him having multiple yearly
vaccines, being fed ONLY commercial kibble, and being on a pretty potent
anti-inflammatory medication.

It is possible that if I had even given him a common Herb called Milk Thistle
in combination with the anti-inflammatory, then his liver may have been OK.

But I had never even heard of that, so I did NOTHING alternative.
So what are the “Secrets” of Healing never taught to Vets?

1. That there are many ways to heal, NOT just conventionally, and we must look
at all the options, weighing the side effects with the benefits. An example would
be using a Herbal combination called Skin Eze vs Steroids. Most of the time the
Steroids are used, but few Pet owners are aware of ALL of the side effects, such
as Liver disease and Diabetes.

2. Be open minded. Just because Dr XYZ say that there is NO scientific basis
does not mean that it doesn’t work… It could mean that there is NO mon*ey in it
for The Drug company, so they won’t fund the study. AN example of this is with
a plant growing in your garden, Dandelion. It is an effective diuretic, and it
is a nutrient source, BUT you can bet that 99% of Veterinarians have NEVER prescribed
it as it doesn’t come in a pill, from their pharmacy, and it had few SCIENTIFIC

3. Question what you are told and marketed… Sure that wonder drug looks great, but
WHY is that pharmaceutical company spending SO MUCH mon^^ey on advertising?
As Veterinarians we get much of our continuing education from Industry Reps..
They are in the business of selling a conventional drug/food/vaccine..QUESTION
what they are saying.
An example is ALL the big glossy ads selling Rimadyl..How often to you hear about
ALL the side effects? And there are MANY.

4. Diet is KEY. And NOT all Nutrition comes in a BAG. Draw the analogy to your own
health. Would you be healthier eating all your food that comes in a bag or can OR
Fresh fruit and vegetables, organic meat, and without ingredients you can’t even
pronounce??? The SAME thing applies to your dog or cat… If you want a healthier pet
then you’ve got to feed them healthier, including food that you make at home and
Raw food.

5. Exercise. Not just a walk to the backyard to go pee. AT MINIMUM 30 minutes of
running twice a day. Our pets were designed to MOVE. The benefits of Exercise are
immense- from weight loss, to better behavior, to endorphin release, to preventing
most of our chronic diseases. If you want to have a HEALTHY pet and AVOID the Vet,
then commit to exercising regularly.

6. Vaccines. As little and as few as needed. I am convinced that I have my own
dog far to many vaccines, and this CONSTANT bombardment on his immune system
wore him down, ultimately leading to Cancer that ended his life. If I had to
do it all again, I would have given him a FRACTION of the vaccines that he had.
And vaccine reps are GREAT at informing Veterinarians about the Newest upcoming
disease.. BUT if our pets were eating well and not over medicated, then their
immune systems would be in better shape to challenge these diseases.

7. Encourage Pet Owners to be INVOLVED. To have a healthy pet, it is imperative
that you as pet owners are KEY in keeping your pet healthy. You KNOW your pet
BETTER than anyone. You can make decisions about pet food, about exercise, about
vaccines, about alternate medical options. An empowered Pet Owner is a Wonderful
person… You become further bonded with your pet. This doesn’t mean that you don’t
see your Veterinarian, but that you work in conjunction with them, making suggestions
and questioning their advice. Emergencies are always going to happen, there
is still a place for conventional Veterinary Medicine, BUT as an EMPOWERED Pet Owner,
you can Help prevent disease, and utilize alternate options. This could be something
as simple as Massage for your dog’s sore back–This twice daily massage may mean
that you could avoid that potentially potent Anti-inflammatory.


P.S. That was one lengthy email, BUT I am passionate about teaching
YOU as a pet owner ALL the ways to have a healthier pet and ALL the
alternate options in HEALING your pet. The most effective way to get a
firm grasp of these principles is with my Complete Home Study Multimedia
Course. You can see my letter describing my Course at:


P.P.S. If you’d like to send me a Success Story,
Question, or Comment, follow these guidelines:

1) Keep it short and to the point. Two paragraphs

2) Tell me what’s working for you before you ask
your question. I appreciate all of the “Your stuff
is great” and “I don’t need to tell you how well
your stuff works” comments, but the fact is that I
DO need to hear all of the specifics… because
this helps other Pet owner’s to see what’s working in
different situations.

3) If you have a Success Story, write “Success
Story” in the subject line of the email. I read
these first.

4) At the end of the email, give me your initials
and tell me where you’re from.

5) Send it to me at:


…don’t just hit “reply” to this email.


It’s Your Pet. Heal Them At Home!

    Is there a Canadian retailer for Skin-eze? All I can find are US websites that charge an arm and a leg for shipping!
