Preventing disease and sadness in you and your pets

Pets Teach Us So Much Radio Show, 96, the Love Genies discussed the sadness that is preventable when you take care of yourself and your pet’s health. To listen to the full discussion, tune into the episode.

Prevention is key.

Prevention is key.


So often we want to wrap our pets, children, friends and family in soft warm cotton and shield them from the ills of the world.

So many bad events though, are self-inflicted.

We need to do the things that keep us healthy and happy and we need to do the same for our pets.

An annual health exam, a trip to the dentist, a trip for a mammogram or colonoscopy are things we don’t want to do, but we need to do.

One of our friends is suffering terribly as she is the primary contact for her 41 year old sister who is in the hospital with several medical conditions..  Her sister did not take the advice of a Dr. 5 years ago and have her heart valves repaired.  Her health declined and problems compounded. They don’t expect her to make it through the end of the week.

Another friend has a husband who is severely diabetic.  He is hardworking and in good shape.  He just needs to check his blood levels frequently and have snacks, which he often forgets to do.  This poor woman with 2 beautiful children under 7 years old has had to, on many occasions, get her husband out of seizures and find him when he is incoherent because he is not taking care of himself.     This is another preventable situation.

Another friend passed away from colon cancer because he didn’t go to the Dr. to get checked when he obviously knew something was wrong.

It is really sad when people don’t value life.   Whether it’s their own life or their pet’s life, prevention and reality checks will keep you here, on this planet.

We are not stronger than disease.  We are not wiser than what an x-ray shows.  We need to take care of ourselves and our pets to make sure we finish our assignment, whatever it is, on this planet.

Value your health because there are no second chances.  Don’t cause unnecessary suffering to those around you because you didn’t take care of business.

We know this was a depressing post, sorry-but hopefully you make that Dr.’s apt you have been putting off.
