Music For Your Enjoyment

I want Friday’s to bring awareness to other organizations that are doing wonderful things for animals. If you have information you want to share, send me a paragraph on the topic with a link to the website, by 11am on Thursday.  I will do this each Friday.

fox in cage1. I did not realize that fox hunting was still alive and well in other parts of the world. I was sent some information about a campaign going on in the UK to repeal the hunting act.  Hunting of foxes, deer, hare and mink by using hounds, has been illegal over there sine 2004.  Now, a guy by the name of David Cameron, who is running in an election, wants to repeal the act.

I wanted to learn more about this type of hunting, since I don’t know much about it.  What I read disturbed me.  A fox will be trapped.  Then, rather than kill it right away, it is let lose so that it can be caught by the hounds and killed later.  This is a sport for the people involved.  The hounds, horses, men and children will chase the fox through the countryside with blasting horns.  The fox is gripped with fear and stressed beyond capacity until finally, with the internal organs failing and exhausted, the fox will be unable to continue.  To read more about this please click here to visit the site where you can learn more, and help.

Fox That Was Caught

Fox That Was Caught

There is a man by the name of Clifford Pellow.  For more than 2 decades he was a professional Huntsman with several packs of Fox hounds in England and Whales.  Because he is a stickler for rules, he became more and more outraged at the abuse the foxes were enduring because the Hunt Master continued to break the hunting code of ethics.    Eventually he could no longer stomach it, he protested and lost his job as a Huntsman.  To read more about Clifford, the cruelty in fox hunting and what Clifford is doing, check out his story here.

2. Did you know there is an organization that helps rescued Labradors in need of medical attention? I had no idea until they contacted me.  The organization, Labmed, was founded in 1996 and has funded a total of 1,132 dogs.  These dogs would most likely not be alive if it had not been for this organization.

Here is a photo of one of their newest applicants, Lucy, who needs emergency surgery for internal bleeding in order to save her life.  If you would like to help other dogs and learn more about this organization, click here.

Dr. Greg Martinez

3. After almost 30 years as a veterinarian Dr. Greg Martinez has spent 10 of those years treating his patients, and his own pets, with a combination of medical and nutritional science. He believes that pet owners have it within their power to cure many of their animals’ most common ailments.  He says that healthful eating is critical to human’s well-being and that pet junk food, empty calories and food allergies are making our dogs and cats similarly sick.  He has published a book called, Dr. Greg’s Dog Dish Diet.

He has lots of positive feedback from clients and readers.  He says it amazing that there could be any doubt that food allergies have such a great role in skin, ear, stomach, bowel, anal gland, obesity, and seizure problems. Veterinarians are still taught that the incidence of food allergies are low, even though thirty percent of his patients respond to elimination of allergens and addition of healthy food ingredients.

If people start to pay attention to what they are feeding their animals, maybe they will do the same for their families. He wants to spread the word that successful nutritional management of the above chronic diseases will get educators and researchers to take another look at canine nutrition, and help avoid needless misery, medications, and money for millions of dogs. When you buy the book, Dr. Greg’s Dog Dish Diet, you are helping spread the message.
