Senate Pet 'Food' Inquiry

Dr Tom Lonsdale
Sydney, Australia

Jun 23, 2018 — Senate Pet ‘Food’ Inquiry

Senator Griff, in his press release says: It’s the old ‘Dracula in charge of the blood bank’ problem. https://centrealliance.org.au/media/media/senate-to-inquire-into-problem-plagued-pet-food-industry/
He's referring to the multi-national pet-food makers --- Mars Inc., Nestle and Colgate-Palmolive. Of course the Australian Government needs to be concerned about the activities of multi-national corporations.

But it's Dracula's collaborators that should concern us most -- the organised vet profession, RSPCA and various front organisations that hide in plain sight, doing the bidding of the multi-nationals.

Back in 1966, the Mars Corporation established their propaganda outfit, Petcare Information and Advisory Service, with the specific aim of encouraging Australians to keep pets (furry toys) and to feed them furry toy formula packaged conveniently in cans and packets. Progressively Mars, Nestle and Colgate suborned elements of the vet profession, animal welfare groups, media and government departments.

Mass ill-health, mass suffering is now the norm. An army of vets pursue self-interest treating, but never preventing, the epidemics of processed food induced disease. Australian consumers and tax payers pay the bills. Pets pay with their lives.

The Senate Inquiry is entitled: Regulatory approaches to ensure the safety of pet food. https://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Committees/Senate/Rural_and_Regional_Affairs_and_Transport/SafetyofPetFood
These days the term 'pet food' means the industrial stuff on the supermarket shelves -- stuff bearing no resemblance to the food of free living dogs and cats.

How did we get to the point where we dignify grain-based junk in a bag or can as 'food' fit for carnivores?

Please ask yourself how something that devastates pet health can be regulated to be made 'safe'?

For answers please see: https://www,rawmeatybones.com and the Open Letter to NSW Attorney General. http://www.rawmeatybones.com/pdf/AttorneyGen.pdf

Please help shine a light on the multi-national pet-food makers and their collaborators.
