How can you tell a good puppy breeder from a bad one?

There are approximately eight million in the UK. They keep us company, assist the deaf, blind, elderly and disabled, sniff out drugs, track down criminals and even go to war alongside their human companions. Dogs, in short, really are man's best friend.

But with the rise of social media and , more and more people are being unwittingly duped by farmers into buying a dog that is born into dirty, disease-ridden conditions and often comes with a lifetime of health problems.

Recent research the Kennel Club suggests that one in every three UK dog owners may have unwittingly bought their new pet a puppy farm. Furthermore, one in five of these pups will need long-term veterinary care or die before they are six months old.

[Why compulsory microchipping might not help reunite lost and stolen dogs.]

After responding to an online ad for Westie pups, she was surprised by what she found when she arrived at the breeders: “There were lots of different breeds of dog running around, more than I imagined there would be. The puppy we looked at seemed healthy and happy so we decided to bring him home.”

    Then maybe we should put you out of your misery? You know how nature works so well. How many times have you seen a doctor or dentist? Don’t be so quick to judge others for caring.

    Implying I’m weak. I’ve seen the doctor twice in 10 years for medical checks for work, and the dentist a few times as part of the Aus govts health program thing for high school kids. Everything else can be fixed by myself. People want to get well instantly, which is why there is an increase in antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria. Incompetent doctors using antibiotics to treat viral infections, or using a complicated method when a simple one does a better job just to milk money from patients

    There is no really good way to de-worm an animal. If the dog had internal parasites, there are pills for that, but under the skin can be significantly harder to get rid of.

    The puppy would have felt pinching and discomfort, not much more. Their skin is very pliable at that stage, and not very sensitive. The whining is most likely a combination of the squeezing sensation and the fact that the worms are leaving the skin.

    Well we can obviously see who the picture of model health is here. Just remember if you ever have something you can’t fix “by yourself” don’t go looking for help from the medical community. Because according to you all they are is money grubbers pulling down our society. Good Luck on that.
