While I was in Sweden getting my mercury poisoning taken care of I went looking and interviewing pet owners in Sweden about their veterinary experiences. I was surprised to see the dogs, even large dogs travel with their owners on all forms of the mass transit system.
On the metro I sat next to Rhodesian Ridgebacks, Weimeraners, German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers really many more large dogs than small. The dogs were all so well behaved, no signs of behavioral or mental issues,no compulsive obsessive disorders, no aggressive tendencies and no…..obvious signs of cancers, chronic disease like we see everywhere in the US.
The pet parents were quite SHOCKED when I asked them about getting annual vaccines for their dogs. They first were puzzled as they reported to me that they did not take their pets back to the vet for yearly vaccines, they had puppy shots and were done. The SHOCK came when they asked me why would the vets in the US send postcards every year to come get shots for the dogs? Since there is no other reason other than the one that Dr. Ron Schultz gave in 1978, which was “to entice the client to come to the vet with their pet every year”. They were SHOCKED because that is not what a doctor is supposed to be doing, soliciting with postcards for unsafe and unnecessary vaccines in order to generate revenue.
The Swedes love their families, their children and even the ones with fur. The love showed up in the pets living long lives in happy human animal bond relationships. These pets live longer and in more health because they are NOT vaccinated into disease. Disease like cancer, autoimmune disease, allergies, asthma, atopy, anaphylaxis and eczema. Metal poisoning wasn’t taking place here.
Yep, the Swedes love their pets and obviously the veterinarians are also more into protecting pets than they are in generating revenue with unnecessary vaccinations. Here is a picture of a veterinary clinic on the corner and I will have to admit…….they were not very busy. The veterinary bills are low in Sweden because apparently, when the animals are not vaccinated into disease, they live much healthier lives!
