People seeking cat health advice are often confused. Understandably! It comes from various sources and is usually conflicting. Most people rely on the advice given by their veterinarian and dismiss that coming from holistic practitioners.
In a perfect world I would suggest that a vet should be the best person to turn to for advice. Sadly, we don’t live in a perfect world. We live in a world where the dollar is king and every whichway to make it seems to be more accepted than doing the right, the ethical thing.
In my years as a holistic practitioner I have heard a great deal of ‘behind the scenes’ activities by doctors, by vets, by drug companies. And I doubt if I have heard 1% of what really goes on.
I dislike bringing negativity to your attention, but sometimes, unless you understand what’s really going on, you can’t make an effective choice.
Veterinary schools, like most educational institutions, are always short of money. So they welcome additional funds. Big corporations, who can influence the students, are only too happy to come to the rescue. Big Pet Food, Big Pharma, stand to gain much by investing in veterinary students education.
Some students are savvy. They qualify and stack their surgeries from floor to ceiling with Big Pet Food. But they feed their own pets a quality, natural, homemade diet.
They recommend annual vaccinations for all their patients, but don’t vaccinate their own pets.
What a wonderful world we would live in if everything was out in the open, everything was transparent. How much easier it would be for us to appreciate the best cat health advice.
Eckhart Tolle in his bestselling book A New Earth, talks about the difference between cleverness and intelligence. He calls being clever ego driven and is exclusive.
On the other hand, he talks about intelligence. Intelligence is considering every aspect, leaving no leaf unturned. It is inclusive. Everyone has a say. Everything is considered.
He feels businesses, corporations and governments are mostly clever, but lack intelligence.
It certainly rings true for me.
So how do you untangle the mess, how do you work out the best cat health advice, who do you turn to for advice?
First, understand the cleverness behind big corporations. They use fear and confusion as a way to hook you in. They are instrumental in what the media reports, as they are the major advertisers. Never underrate the power that money has, the influence it exerts to convince you to a manipulated way of thinking.
Now let’s look at the holistic approach. Most (sadly, not all) holistic animal therapists understand that deviating from nature is the cause of most of your cat’s troubles (and that of the planet). That by returning to the natural way cats eat and behave, their health can dramatically improve, that serious, even potentially fatal diseases, disappear as if they had never been.
Nature is intelligent. Nature has already perfected the food your cat needs for perfect health. Natural has already perfected the way to keep a cat healthy. All you have to do is to think for yourself, to let go of fear and of preconceived ideas based on fear. And therein lies the problem, as this is far from easy.
However, unless you try something you will never know if it works. And your cat depends on you. I have been there and felt the fear, the doubt, the confusion, yes even the guilt. But I dived in headfirst. And made many mistakes you don’t have to repeat. And had anxious times converting my tribe that you don’t need to repeat.
