I’ve talked to a few vets and every time I mention a raw diet all of them have baulked and warned me of the horrible dangers that are lurking inside this food. I’ve also been told that unless I neuter my dog he will get cancer. No might get cancer, not there is a possibility of him having cancer, but he will have it. I get tired of vets using fear tactics to make the pet guardian do what they think is best.
At Elizabeth Pet Street Hospital, I have received the best reaction to my choices so far. They have taken the time to listen to me and are willing to work with me. I asked for the titer tests and was warned they were expensive, but I wasn’t talked out of my decision. I told them that I feed raw and there was no gasp or scolding, we just moved right along into how my little guy was doing. The fact that my dog isn’t neutered, well that’s my choice and if it’s not causing any problems this vet doesn’t see an issue.
So far this is the only vet that I’ve found to be willing to work with me. They haven't used fear mongering or talked down to me for the choices I’ve made. I understand that there are risks involved in my choices but ultimately they are my choices, for my dog. Hopefully we can continue this partnership in keeping my dog healthy.
