Thanks for the thought…

The comments by an American Vet regarding Westminster and Peta have been forwarded by a few people & thanks for thinking about it being placed here. It seems that there are many variants of it with the actual vet only writing the first paragraphs of the, sometimes, lot longer article. We think these are the words she wrote

“No one ever seems to mention the millions of dollars that AKC and the Canine Health foundation have invested in medical research that benefits ALL dogs as well as humans. “Adorable mixed breeds” get cancer, epilepsy, allergies, heart disease, and orthopedic problems just like purebreds. I see it every day in my veterinary practice but mixed breed dogs aren’t tracked
like the purebreds so they have a reputation as “healthier” that is actually undeserved in many cases. I am so tired of PETA and their bogus war on the dedicated breeders who strive to breed healthy dogs, place puppies in appropriate homes, and feel responsible for their puppies for life. I wish someone would do a expose on PETA but the media seems really afraid of
them.” Posted by: Libbye Miller DVM | January 08
