Our world is rapidly changing. We can no longer look back to the past and say that the way we did things then will work today. We have seen a huge increase in population, the development of industry, and the growth of factory farming.
This has not been done intelligently, or with the consideration of all beings at the forefront. Today we have a serious problem of food contamination. Added to this is the diminished quality of the nutritional value of food coupled with a very negative energy of the suffering of the animals raised to be eaten. The way dogs and cats (and humans) are eating now cannot be sustained and the continued attempt to keep eating practices the same as before is having significant health effects. Many of the chronic diseases we now see in our animal companions are expressions of this.
We will explore these issues and suggest ways we can change our cultural practices in the direction best for all concerned.
