|Exposing the Fraud
Could a family Physician get away with "prescribing"
strict Corn Chip diets to trusting patients due to Frito-Lay funding
his education and paying him kickbacks in his practice?
Veterinarians take the same Oath as a Physician, and are compensated
to be entrusted with the health and well-being of our pets, are
they not? If a vet really needs to sell "diets"
(as profits may account for well over 20 percent of income), should
they not, at least, be forced to affiliate with HEALTHY ones
-- after having completed legitimate nutritional studies, research,
and training, so as to avoid such a blatant and costly conflict
Despite the facts regarding questionable, cheap, unhealthy ingredients
in mainstream pet foods being so widely available and provided,
people STILL listen to their "trusted" veterinarian
and feed their pets that which makes them SICK(ER)!!!
Just how many people are aware of the MAIN ingredients in these
foods (proven allergens: corn/wheat/gluten/soy...) and the wide
array of health issues which so commonly accompany these "diets"
(chronic yeast-ear infections; allergies, hot spots, Urinary Tract
Infections, Cancer, Diabetes...?)
I have submitted more than sufficient proof (see links),
which has been accumulated, to every media outlet imaginable in
calling to address this blatant conflict of interest, and truly
need the support of other deceived pet owners to win this fight.
I urge everyone who has had pets on "prescription formulas"
suffering from various, chronic ailments only to be drugged up
(Cats on Insulin; dogs on Steroids...) to submit news tips
write letters to editors and/or file a complaint with the Federal
Trade Commission to end the deceptive, fraudulent conflict of
I wonder why has no Media yet come forward and done their civic
responsibility of reporting this ongoing fraud epidemic which
is so vital, heartbreaking, and costly to so many? (See Steriods
in baseball and B. Spears being shoved down our throats, though.)
Evidence of Pet Food Harms
Food Statement Dr Fox
for Pet Food Regulation
Since there are health warnings on cigarette packs, why none
on these foods, and in lobbies of vets who sell it? It is not
only a conflict of interest, but FRAUD, that a veterinarian should
be permitted to sell something which has been PROVEN to be detrimental
to a patient's health. Why is a doctor of medicine
even permitted to be "prescribing" and "advising"
such when it's not even (bad) medicine by any stretch?
Again, our Physicians can not "prescribe" AND
sell us Corn Chips in their practices while addressing our health
How can such a blatant conflict of interest continue to ethically
and legally be tolerated, as these vets, of course, will not diagnose
health issues (caused by the food) properly or honestly?
We must especially consider the evidence brought to light due
to the 2007 pet food recall catastrophe -- seems everyone
knows someone who had dogs and/or cats become sick while being
fed "prescription" formulas -- specifically
sudden cases of Kidney and Renal Failure.
Yes, we may be easily deceived by the cute, heartwarming
advertisements produced by these pet food companies -- however
we do NOT pay those people handsomely for their trusted medical
treatment, advice and guidance!
Why has no Media yet come forward and done their civic responsibility
of reporting this ongoing fraud epidemic which is so vital, heartbreaking,
and costly to so many, while steroids in Baseball and celebrity
garbage continue to be shoved in our faces at every turn?
Because there are no LAWYERS involved, of course!! Here are cases
with NO burden of proof (for the food was detrimental to health
even BEFORE it was poisoned), yet they're only suing the Manufacturers??
Tip on the iceberg:
See "Comments"; over 90 comments of distressed pet owners
right here: http://cats.about.com/b/2007/03/31/hills-recalls-sd-prescription-diet-md-dry-food.htm
Why is this not news?
Why does a Lawyer or investigator not research a veterinary
practice which sells "prescription diets" and see for
themselves the overwhelming cases of canine-feline Cancer and
Diabetes (among countless other avoidable health issues), then
visit a Holistic veterinarian/Nutritional Specialist who does
not push such "food" for profit and compare their statistics
and evidence? While he's at it, he can take note of which practices
push pet insurance most aggressively, as well
as fleecing clients with unnecessary "treatments".
If Congress were to take action to prohibit the practice
of veterinarians selling over-priced "diets" which
have been proven to be detrimental to the animals' health (not
to mention, which contain the cheapest ingredients, some from
CHINA; yet note those inflated price tags nonetheless
- more deceptive consumer fraud), they'd have NO burden
of proof, either, as the proof and evidence are so widely available!
Also, would you not agree that, on a daily basis, more beings
are adversely affected by this conflict of interest/pet food issue
than they ever could be by steroids in baseball, an issue which
they won't let rest? Could it be that those pet food companies
are even richer, thus more influential in keeping their skeletons
in the closet, than even Major League Baseball who can pay ARod's
Naive pet owners I know have actually compared a dentist recommending
Colgate Toothpaste to those vets.
Has Colgate ever been a proven health risk to people who use it?
We pet owners can only hope and pray that we can find an entity
or investigator who is not on the payroll as well, and that somebody
in the media will speak up and take on these deceitful titans
with veterinarians in their pockets fleecing naive clients. It
is outright, blatant FRAUD! And, pssst, guess who are among,
if not THE biggest stockholders of Hill's, the makers of
Science Diet? Their governing entity!
Please urge every pet owner you know to contact as many media
as they can, and to file a FTC
How can we persuade pet owners to make, and keep, their pets
healthy when their trusted veterinarians are selling them in the
other direction because they have stocks in the products!
