Scientific Study on our Dogs current state of health

Diabetes in pets is up to 900% (since 2011) in the United Kingdom, and Obesity is up 60% in North America, and scientifically proven the biggest evil of them all is 1 in 2 dogs will get cancer.

This is a video explaining the largest K9 study done on 3000 Golden Retriever dogs.

The average age of a dog's life 20 years ago was for a dog to be 17 years old.  Today the average age of a dog is living only for 11 years.

10% of all dogs with Cancer, is genetic, and 90% of dogs with cancer is caused by lifestyle and environmental awareness.

Causes of Cancer =

  • Pollution

This is a must see video and we hope you will take note of how you and your pets compare to what is said here today.

This is not only a warning for us to take note of the lifestyle that we give our pets, but it is also a time for you to think very carefully whether you can afford any of these illnesses should they happen to our pets.  If you wish to get affordable comprehensive Pet Insurance cover, then the time to do so is now, before your pet is diagnosed.  Pet Insurance companies do not cover pre-existing or pre-diagnosed illnesses.  With PawPaw Pet Insurance you will have the peace of mind that you can visit any vet in South Africa, there is no annual limit and the excess is only 10%.  

Thank you to Paul Jacobson owner of Vondis Holistic Pet Nutrition for sharing this information with us.
