Why thousands of dog lovers may be harming their dogs without knowingBy Dr. Peter Dobias, DVM
In my opinion, the current state of medicine is not as much of the fault of individual veterinarians and doctors, but a systemic issue that starts with one sided education and ends with lobbyists working hard to protect the interest of pharmaceutical companies.

A story of a lost friendBy Dr. Peter Dobias, DVM
Can you imagine living in a world where friends become enemies, and opportunities and freedoms are taken away, just because of differences of opinions? My life behind the Iron Curtain still sometimes haunts me, but it has allowed me to see the threats to democracy more clearly.

Vaccines contain dangerous carcinogens and disease-causing chemicals such as mercury and formaldehyde and they have the ability to cause symptoms similar to the disease they are trying to prevent. Based on my experience, healthy puppies may not need any vaccination and maintain their antibodies (protections) for a lifetime. This is the safest way.
