If your dog has diabetes, you may be concerned, not only with how your dog feels, but also with how much treating dog diabetes costs.
The one thing I can assure you, is if you stay with mainstream veterinary care, it is likely to cost you several arms and legs.
However, holistic veterinary care is not only far less expensive, it is also far more effective. Of course, this is my view, as a holistic practitioner, and the view of all other holistic practitioners, as we are a bit biased.
But holistic practitioners are always taught to look for the cause of any ailment. This is less often considered in mainstream veterinary care, who are taught more about which drugs to use with each condition.
You may have heard of the expression ‘you are what you eat’. In other words, what you eat has a direct impact on your health.
Holistic veterinarians have found that when dogs are fed according to natural laws, their health improves almost beyond belief. Which implies that the majority of food that dogs are fed, is actually making them unhealthy.
Remove the cause and the problem disappears.
So how much does dog diabetes cost? It may not cost you anything if all it takes to cure it, is a switch to a natural diet.
Contrary to popular belief, feeding a dog naturally tends to cost less that feeding a commercial dog food.
If your dog has had diabetes a long time and has been given medical drugs, you’ll be well aware of the cost of this, not only in monetary value, but also in the welfare of your dog.
Even at this late stage, switching to holistic care is likely to bring down the cost, although the treatment may be more complicated.
Holistic practitioners find that treating uncomplicated cases of disease much easier than when drugs have complicated it, as the drugs have changed things and this has to be addressed.
So more advanced stages of dog diabetes may cost you more.
But be assured, that if you find a good holistic animal practitioner, your dog diabetes cost will be minimal, your dog will be happier, and you’ll be at the exciting start of a more natural approach to life and health.
I’m always amazed at how much we can learn from animals, if only we would listen.
