Why Fight So Hard for the Life of a Dog?


By Anna Von Reitz

As many of you know, my dog, an elderly (by most standards) Yellow Labrador Retriever, has developed a mysterious malady that has yet to be diagnosed after four months of trying. He has trouble breathing when he gets excited, and being a Labrador, that means most of the time.
First, I was told that he had lymphoma, a form of cancer that affects the lymphatic system. Next, I was told that he has a rare but by no means unknown condition --- paralysis of the vocal cords, which results in obstruction of the air channel.
Now nobody knows what is true or what to do, other than to sedate him with mild sedatives and try to keep him calm, which is a tall order for a big, happy, always overly-enthusiastic and playful dog.
The ongoing tests and consultations with specialists is onerous at best, and cuts into what I have "left over" at the end of the month to donate toward the work of The Living Law Firm --- but what can I do?
My "Golden Boy" is a member of the family, and even though at 13, he is old for a Labrador, he is barely middle-aged for one of my dogs. My dogs routinely live to be 18 to 25 years of age, even from so-called short-lived breeds.
Why?
Because I take my contract with the animals seriously.
My dogs never eat commercial dog food except as emergency rations, and I have studied dog nutrition and observed dog habits and needs and oddities from my own childhood onward.
Just like people, dogs function best having multiple small meals of high quality food spaced more or less evenly through the course of the waking hours. My dogs eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner like the rest of the family, and get a bedtime snack meal -- a total of four feedings a day.
And the food they eat is just an altered version of what the rest of the family eats, too. Dogs don't respond well to salt, spices, white potatoes, bamboo shoots, grapes in any form including raisins, chocolate, and a few other substances we cook with--- but for the most part, a careful cook can make a no salt, no spice, no potato version for the dogs and then add the salt and spices, etc., later.
Having oatmeal with raisins and apples for breakfast? Great. Just make the apple and oatmeal mixture first, take some out for the dogs, and then add the raisins for the "people version". My dogs eat whole grain cereals with milk and fruit just like the rest of the family. The fruit keeps them regular and provides anti-oxidants, and the milk helps meet their calcium demands.
Dogs need a diet of two parts meat, one part whole grains, and one part veggies--- just a slight adjustment from our own dietary needs with are two parts veggies, one part whole grains, and one part meat.
This results in Rover getting the lions share of the meat (proportionally) in the household and may cause some consternation when Hubby first realizes that the dogs get more of the Sunday roast than he does, and its all for the best health of everyone concerned that it works that way.
The calcium requirements of a dog are large and are only partly met by letting your dog chew on bones. To deal with the need, you have to make bone broth for your dogs regularly and to supplement with treats high in calcium.
I just get a rotisserie chicken and share it out for dinner, then boil the bones and make bone broth for the dogs. Instead of buying commercial dog treats I buy them a bag of cheese curds and a bag of dried mangoes which are high in calcium. They get a piece of mango as their treat after breakfast and a cheese curd or two as a treat after lunch.
Other treats include apples, blueberries, raspberries and dried cranberries -- "craisins" --- all of which dogs love and need for the anti-oxidants and other vital nutrients in fruits. We aren't talking large quantities here --- just a couple tablespoons of berries for a large dog, a quarter of an apple, a small handful of craisins once or twice a day.
As for veggies, dogs love and do well with sweet potatoes and yams, peas, carrots, and mashed lentils. They tolerate cabbage, broccoli and even Brussels sprouts, but these veggies are tougher and more fibrous and a dog's much shorter intestinal tract is not able to digest these as well, resulting in gas and other problems --- so I help them out by chopping these vegetables up into smaller, easier to digest pieces or even puree them into a soup--- Cream of Broccoli is always a hit. Dogs also tolerate cooked tomatoes in small amounts, as when they are added to a soup or in a casserole.
So with a few timely additions and deletions, your dog can eat pretty much the same fare as you, and the cost ---except for a little more awareness on your part --- is, in my experience anyway, considerably less than trying to buy them decent dog food.
People often forget or underestimate the water needs of a dog, which are substantial. The Water Dish needs to be cleaned and refilled at least once a day, and I usually do it twice a day, morning and evening. The rule is to keep the water fresh, plentiful, and clean. That includes cleaning the water dish.
Good hygiene with the pet food dishes is also important. Bits of food clinging to the inside of a dog bowl become home to all sorts of bacteria that then infest your dog's teeth and gums along with his next meal. Better that you "do the drill" and wash Rover's bowl after every meal or treat him to having several dog bowls so that he always has a clean bowl to eat from.
Most of all, your dog needs time with you. Dogs have an insatiable relationship with love. They give it and they need it in return like the air that they breathe. If you are going to have a dog, make space in your life for long walks, petting time, "conversations", and play. Every dog I have ever had has cherished time together and needed exercise on a daily basis.
If you will give them this time and consideration and meet their needs, they will give you a lifetime of companionship and unconditional love -- which is a rare commodity in this world.
And you can hope to, on average, double your dog's life expectancy.
So, in answer to why fight so hard for the life of a dog?
1. Because I value life.
2. Because I have a "contract" -- unspoken, unwritten, but still valid, to care for my dog faithfully through all the ups and downs of life --- just as he keeps his contract to guard the house.
3. At 13, my Labrador has no other ailments. He is playful and nimble and happy and able to enjoy life to the full. If my past experiences are any guide, he may easily have another five or more years of good health and good life -- if he gets past this crisis.
I have already had Vets suggesting that I put him down, mainly because of his age and because they haven't been able to come up with a definite diagnosis or treatment. The idea that he is expensive and inconvenient seems to be on the tips of their tongues. It would be so much easier to just put him to sleep.... he's a Labrador Retriever and he is thirteen years old.
Their wisdom is that his lifetime is over .... but then, they probably never saw a healthy 25 year-old German Shepherd or an 28 year-old Skye Terrier or an 18 year-old Brittany Spaniel. That kind of longevity and health right up to the end is possible for a dog --- certainly possible and common among my dogs.
So they will just have to wag their heads and wonder why I would fight so hard for the life of a dog.

  2. I am sorry judge Anna, for you and your dog. My little American Eskimo dog passed away too 7 years ago, due to her diabetes, I wished I knew better that the vet had no experienced with this type of problem. They recommended that I used human drug injection, I tried for a couple weeks, she never liked the needles. Today I know better, I could have used Chromium Picolinate which I use it too off and on, whenever I consume any real sugar, for prevention only. This med does work for me. If my dog didn't die, I would never be able to fight with the rats; because she required full attention. I kept singing her song off and on for her, next to my house. I wish I have a German Shepherd.
    Take care.

  4. Thanks for poignant reminders on how to treat pets Anna♡

    My 19 years old or so papillon was killed most likely by a coyote almost 3 years ago this coming St. Patrick's Day, though, it seems sometimes like yesterday since he shows up so often in dreams & interesting shadows in the physical...usually teaching something more about life & love💓

    I wish I could add something substantial to this diet conversation for dogs like Labradors◇

    I never took my papillon to a vet again after they wanted $1100 for a broken foot when my papillon got into a food fight with a neighbor's golden retriever....@ age we guess @ the time 3 or 4?

    Twice my papillon got those horrid mites, but it seemed Diatomaseous Earth solved that problem as well as one could expect.

    Good luck on figuring out a remedy Anna🎶

  6. One life moves all bodies. There is nothing harder than looking through the appearance of discord, and watch it disappear. Pi is to be whole/holy, where location and position are not, leaving all that Is. Merry/Mary Christ-mass to all.

  7. First thing I think of regarding difficult breathing is emotions. If the dog experienced an emotional shock trauma then just keep on loving her/him all the more. And some Reiki could also be supportive.

    1. Agreed wholeheartedly Chef. Trapped negative spirited Emotions(Lower vibrational frequencies) cause "Dis-ease" and imbalances within our physical Being "body" and makes its "appearance" as "signs" a.k.a Symptoms. I highly recommend reading "The Emotion Code" By Dr. Bradley Nelson to Learn to Discover and Release all Lower Energetically "Trapped" Emotions causing "Dis-EASE" for proper re-balancing and full restoration of our living bodies natural ability to heal thyself. Awe-mazing Results for All Living Beings, including our beloved Pets!!

  8. Wishing the best for all. Sometimes a completely different approach might help. Here is a vet on line for free. Gather the symptoms in conjunction with what has been reviewed by your vets and pose a question.

  9. this may sound a little 'off track' but with his age (equivalent 91 our age) could he be experiencing affects of 'radiation' from a 'smart meter' on your residence ?? if you do not have an old type analog electrical meter you will have a 'smart type' meter that sends out emf rf frequencies that will affect all of you !! very serious stuff coming down; here is an excellent video proving all this exposure; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRR_u3oooHw !

  10. Vets said my sisters cat was gonna die so she got busy and used cat herbs and diet for the cat that is now healthy and actually quite old too. Doctors and vets, unless parent child and trained from a young age does not get training that includes useful remedies once more common. Rockefeller, Morris Fishbein ( head of AMA and he failed medical school!) and others re-organized the medical landscape hurting and legislating country, herb and other medical practice then increased alopathy, cut and drug medical practice, for profit of course leading to today's pharma drug business and loss of knowledge the harmed ones kept for us for centuries.

  13. Anna, do you know about DMSO? I have read where it is used on farm animals almost like a cure all. Even some humans are starting to use it, it is a by product from making paper from wood.

    It is used on the farm on horses and dogs, etc... here is some of the things us humans use it for DMSO is used topically to decrease pain and speed the healing of wounds, burns, and muscle and skeletal injuries. DMSO is also used topically to treat painful conditions such as headache, inflammation, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and severe facial pain called tic douloureux.

    Just saying it might be something you want to check out for your companion.

    Different topic, I read that President Trump is waiting for the law he passed about trying civilians in military courts to become into effect in January 2019 on the sealed indictments.

  15. So sorry your Lab is having breathing problems. I've read that Oprah was stressing her dog she thought was dying. She called a dog vet who told her to feed her dog raw organ meats and some sprinkles of tumeric and also 1/2 capsule of N-acetyl cystein on top of cut up organ meats (both helps produce glutathion which can take care of body inflammation. A week later her dog perked up and lived 5 more years when it was already at the end of her life.
