On November 2, 2017, the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) called for a ban on veterinarians offering homeopathic and alternative medicines.

If this doesn’t concern you, it should. Here’s why …

The Real Reason Vets Are Banning Holistic Medicine
Today, the concept of preventive medicine would be laughable if it wasn’t so tragically misguided. Most vets today believe dogs need the following to be healthy:

*Major surgery to remove their reproductive organs (and the important hormones they control)

*Vaccines (with ingredients like thimerosal, aluminum, MSG, formaldehyde and foreign animal protein)

*Neurotoxic drugs (these meds kill fleas and ticks by devastating their nervous systems … and your dog’s)

*Poisons that kill intestinal worms

*Processed, starch-filled diets filled with cancer-causing mycotoxins (molds) and poor quality ingredients (nearly all commercial pet food is so completely devoid of nutrition that it relies on a combo of synthetic vitamins, minerals and amino acids called a premix to make it pass AAFCO standards).

Didn't read the link (don't need the aggravation), but you know what's ironic?  The Queen herself uses homeopathic medicine.  So if it's good enough for the Queen, it's certainly good enough for pets!

Hmmm . . . I wonder if the vet who cares for her dogs also uses homeopathy . . .  :-\

Well as long as it's still the same as it always was, there's a Kennel Master, and they know enough to take care of a lot of things without a vet.

And for all we know, he may also use homeopathy.   ;D  I wasn't referring to the hunting dogs (do they still have those?), but her personal pets, the Pembroke Welsh Corgis.  I wouldn't think the Kennel Master would be in charge of them, but I could be wrong.
